International Conference on Information and Systems Security (ICISS) is one of the leading conferences on security & privacy. The audience of ICISS is usually a mix of international researchers, graduate & post graduate students, industry practitioners working in the field of security & privacy.

ICISS PhD Forum is an excellent opportunity for PhD students to present their preliminary work and get it validated by experts available during the conference. This opportunity to network with established international researchers also helps in building a rapport with them and opens up possibilities of collaboration in terms of internship, post-doctoral fellowship. This will be an excellent venue to articulate and present your work-in-progress in a public, encouraging environment to receive a constructive feedback. Furthermore, there will be several pre-conference tutorials lined up, exposing you to topics beyond your current interests.

The PhD Forum Co-Chairs of the 18th ICISS invite early research ideas covering topics that fall within the scope of ICISS. The forum will be conducted in two formats:

Early-stage PhD Students: those who are working towards research topic selection will submit:

  1. Problem being considered
  2. Its relevance and impact
  3. Potential approaches
  4. Poster (36 in x 48 in)
  5. Presentation (5 minutes)

Later-stage PhD Students: those who have selected a research topic and have some preliminary insights/results will submit:

  1. Problem statement
  2. State-of-the-art, gaps, novelty
  3. Methodology, early results
  4. Poster (48 in x 60 in)
  5. Presentation (10 minutes)

The Poster and the Presentation have to be submitted after acceptance of your proposal to the forum.

Each proposal must contain a title, author’s name & affiliation (and a footnote indicating year of PhD admission followed by advisor’s name and affiliation). The submission must be compiled using LNCS style. The early-stage type of submission must not exceed 2-pages and the later-stage submission, 4-pages.

The authors of the accepted proposals will be allowed to display their posters throughout the conference in order to maximize their interactions with the attendees. A thematic compilation of all proposals will be made available as a technical report of IIT-Tirupati.
