Paper Submissions

Submitted papers should be at most 16 pages in the LNCS format excluding bibliography and well-marked appendices, with a maximum of 20 pages in total. Submissions are NOT anonymous. Committee members are not required to read the appendices, and therefore the paper should be intelligible without them. All submissions must be written in English, and only PDF files will be accepted (a Latex source file will be required for the final version of the accepted papers). The final version of the accepted papers must be in the format required for publications in the LNCS series. Papers that fail to comply with these guidelines risk rejection without consideration of their merits. Submissions are to be made to the submission web site at the following link.

The submission of abstracts is recommended by April 2, 2024 (AoE) and papers must be submitted by April 5, 2024 (AoE). Authors of accepted papers must guarantee that their papers will be presented at the conference. Accepted papers will be published by Springer in the Lecture Notes in Computer Science (LNCS) series. A paper submitted to DBSec 2024 cannot be under review for any other conference or journal during the time it is being considered for DBSec 2024. Furthermore, after you submit to DBSec 2024, you must await our response before submitting elsewhere. If you submit your paper to another conference or journal either before/after submission of the paper to DBSec 2024, the paper will be rejected without review and the other conference/journal will be notified as well. This restriction applies to identical as well as to substantially similar papers.

DBSec 2024 will have best paper and best student paper awards.
