The workshop solicits registered reports drafts. A registered report is a full paper sans the evaluation or experiments. Each draft will be reviewed by at least three members of the program committee according to the review criteria mentioned above with the key objective of providing constructive feedback. Accepted drafts are made available to all participants. These drafts will be presented and discussed in detail at the workshop in order for the authors to receive further constructive feedback. After incorporating this feedback, the authors can submit final versions of the Registered Reports for review. Notably, accepted Registered Reports will be invited as full articles in a Special Issue in one of the premier software engineering journals. This invitation is equivalent to an in-principle acceptance in the general pre-registration process. For the final journal article, the authors are expected to conduct the experiments, evaluation, or study as specified in their registered report.
We are currently discussing with top journals regarding the publication of the final papers. Therefore, the deadlines for the submission of registered reports and full journal papers might be delayed, depending on the constraints from the journal.
Submitted report drafts are expected to be a full technical paper sans the full evaluation/experiment results. To assess the feasibility of the experiments, however, we expect some preliminary results in small-scale experiments.
Submitted report drafts should include no more than 8 pages, excluding references. There are no page limits on the references. Papers must be formatted according to the NDSS requirements. Templates are available at NDSS Symposium, USEC Symposium, and NDSS Workshop 2022 Templates page.
Depending on the authors’ preference, accepted registered report drafts will be published in the workshop proceedings of S&P through the Internet Society. The proceedings will be submitted for publication in IEEE Xplore.
