- October 29 (Mon) - QoP Workshop

research papers are solicited in any of the above mentioned topics describing significant research results. Preliminary research results can be submitted in the form of short papers. We also solicit industry experience reports about the use of security measurements and metrics in industrial environments. Industry papers should have at least one author from industry or government, and will be considered for their industrial relevance.

Experimental papers are required (1) to explicitly state the hypothesis being tested, or the problem being solved, and (2) to have a methodology section. The methodology section should contain enough details that a reader could reproduce the work, at least as a thought-experiment. Where appropriate this section should include information like: materials, apparatus & stimuli used, a description of the subjects or data sets used, the experimental design, and the procedure followed.

Theoretical papers should succinctly state the hypothesis that results from the theory and describe an experiment for its validation.

Authors should use the ACM SIG proceedings template when preparing their submission. The page limit for the final proceedings version will be 6 pages in double-column ACM format; short papers are limited to 3 pages. Only PDF or PS files are accepted.

Papers must be submitted through EasyChair site.

Authors of accepted papers are expected to give full presentations at the workshop. The proceedings will be published by the ACM; they will have an ISBN number and be included in the ACM digital library.
