Academic workshop co-located with DeepSec 2021 November 18/19, Vienna
The first European symposium of its kind, ROOTS aims to provide an industry-friendly academic platform to discuss trends in exploitation, reversing, offensive techniques, and effective protections. Submissions should provide novel attack forms, describe novel reversing techniques, or effective deployable defenses. Submissions can also provide a comprehensive overview of the state-of-the-art, and pinpoint promising areas that have not received appropriate attention in the past.
Topics of interest include but are not limited to:
Program Chairs: Adrian Dabrowski (University of California, Irvine), René Pfeiffer (DeepSec) General chair: Edgar Weippl (Universität Wien, SBA Research)
Patroklos Argyroudis (CENSUS S.A.) Jean-Philippe Aumasson (Kudelski Security, Switzerland) Sergey Bratus (Dartmouth College) Martina Lindorfer (University of Technology, Vienna) Georg Merzdovnik (SBA Research) Marius Muench (VU Amsterdam) Sebastian Neuner (Google LLC) Marcus Niemietz (Ruhr-University Bochum) Konrad Rieck (TU Braunschweig) Sebastian Schinzel (Münster University of Applied Sciences) Juraj Somorovsky (Paderborn University) Alexios Voulimeneas (KU Leuven) Stefano Zanero (Politecnico di Milano)
Similar to 2017-2020, proceedings will be published via ACM’s Digital Library. See http://authors.acm.org/main.html for details about the author’s rights.
Submissions to ROOTS are not limited in page count, but their length should be commensurate with the results. We expect that 5–10 pages of two-column PDF using the sigconf template should be sufficient. We encourage submissions of papers based on results previously presented at industry or hacker conferences, so long as the papers themselves have not been presented or published elsewhere. We also encourage Systematization of Knowledge (SoK) submissions.
Submissions should be anonymous and direct references to the author should be blinded or written as a 3rd person reference, where possible. Additionally, submissions should not contain endorsements of specific products or vendors.
Submission deadline: August 20 (anywhere in the world) Author notification: October 1 Camera-ready papers due: October 22 Workshop and DeepSec: November 18/19
