Papers offering novel research contributions in all aspects of access control are solicited for submission to the 17th ACM Symposium on Access Control Models and Technologies (SACMAT 2012). Accepted papers will be presented at the symposium and published by the ACM in the symposium proceedings. A Best Paper Award will be presented to the authors of the most outstanding paper at the conference.

Paper Submission and Format
Authors are required to submit an abstract of their submission at least a week before the deadline for submission of papers (see important dates), in order to expedite the appointment of reviewers.
Abstracts and papers are to be submitted electronically using the EasyChair conference management system (http://www.easychair.org/conferences/?conf=sacmat2012). Papers must be submitted as a single PDF file, formatted for 8.5“ X 11” paper, and be no more than 5MB in size. It is the responsibility of the authors to ensure that their submission will print easily on simple default configurations.
Papers must be written in English. Authors are required to use the ACM format for papers, using one of the ACM SIG Proceedings Templates (http://www.acm.org/sigs/pubs/proceed/template.html). The length of the paper (in the proceedings format) must not exceed ten US letter pages, excluding well-marked appendices, and no more than twelve pages in total. Committee members are not required to read the appendices, so papers must be intelligible without them.
The submission must be anonymous, so information that might identify the authors - including author names, affiliations, acknowledgements, or obvious self-citations - must be excluded. It is the authorsâ€™ responsibility to ensure that their anonymity is preserved when citing their own work.
All submissions must contain a significant original contribution. That is, submitted papers must not substantially overlap papers that have been published or that are simultaneously submitted to a journal, conference or workshop. In particular, simultaneous submission of the same work is not allowed. Where appropriate, relevant related work, including that of the authors, must be cited.
Panel Proposal Submission
Panel proposals should be no longer than two pages, and should identify potential panelists, indicating those who have confirmed their willingness to participate. We especially solicit panels with participants from industry and/or government. Proposals can be e-mailed to the Panels Chairs, Jorge Lobo (firstname.lastname@example.org) and Mahesh Tripunitara (email@example.com).
System Demonstration Submission
This year we are planning to include a demonstration session in the symposium. To be considered for presentation, a proposal describing the demonstration should be e-mailed to the Demonstrations Chair, Andreas Schaad (firstname.lastname@example.org).
The demonstration proposal should clearly describe (1) the overall architecture of the system or technology demonstrated, and (2) one or more demonstration scenarios that describes how the audience, interacting with the demonstration system or the demonstrator, will gain an understanding of the underlying technology. Submissions will be evaluated based on the motivation of the work behind the use of the system or technology to be demonstrated and its novelty.
Demonstration proposals should be no longer than four pages and should use the formatting guidelines described above for regular papers. However, demonstration proposals are not subject to double-blind reviewing, hence the author(s) name and affiliation(s) should be included in the submission. A two-page description of the demonstration will be included in the final proceedings.
