NDSS Symposium 2024 Call for Posters

The call for posters is now closed. Find out which posters are accepted.

High-quality poster presentations are a vital part of NDSS. The poster session provides a platform for discussing works in progress, new research directions, and challenges on various security and privacy topics. Similar to the last year, we solicit two types of poster submissions. First, we invite traditional poster abstracts that present new ideas and work in progress, discuss ongoing research directions, and present preliminary results. We also welcome authors of recently published (2022 or later) papers on computer security, preferably with extension, to present their work at the NDSS poster session. At the conference, the best posters will be honored with prizes.

Poster Prizes

There are two poster prizes: Best Technical Poster and Best Poster Presentation. Both prizes are elected by the audiences participating in the poster session. The prizes will be announced in the NDSS award announcement session along with other NDSS awards.

Submission Requirements and Guidelines

The submission should be a single PDF document consisting of (1) the poster abstract and (2) the poster draft. Requirements for the poster abstract differ for the different poster types.

Poster Abstract

Type 1: Novel ideas and contributions

Authors are welcome to submit a short proposal that describes the main contributions of the poster. Proposals should contain a brief abstract, place an emphasis on the motivation for the work, and summarize contributions. Preliminary results may also be included. The proposal should clearly state the difference between the work that will be presented and any paper published or under submission on the same topic. Poster abstracts should meet the following formatting requirements:

  1. No more than 2-pages, including references and figures
  2. Formatted in the NDSS style formats (without the copyright block)
  3. Submissions must not be anonymized
  4. Titles must begin with “Poster:”

Poster abstracts will appear on the Internet Society website prior to/during the conference, but will not be included in the conference proceedings.

Type 2: Recently published research

We welcome posters for papers published in 2022 or later. For posters on recently published research, a 1-page single-column document should be submitted that includes: 

  1. Full bibliographic reference (title, authors, date, venue, etc.) to the paper
  2. Abstract of the original paper
  3. Link/DOI to the published paper. 

Accepted posters of recently published papers will have the title and authors appear on the website with a link to the prior published work.

Poster Draft (Type 1 and Type 2)

All submissions must include a draft of the poster to receive feedback before the conference. Presented posters should be sized 32×40 inches, but should be scaled down to normal size (letter paper) for submission.

Submission Guidelines

Both the poster abstract and the poster draft should be bundled as a single pdf document, with the last page being the poster draft. That is, if your submission will be 3 pages total, the first two pages have to be the poster abstract and the last page the poster draft. 

Review Process

Submitted posters will be reviewed by the chairs and the committee. The review process for type 1 posters will evaluate ideas, contributions, and presentation style. The review process for type 2 posters will validate the quality of the original publication. All the posters will be ensured to adhere to the submission requirements. If the chairs or the committee submit posters, their posters will be reviewed by other members.

Upon Acceptance

Accepted posters will be presented at the poster session, which will be held in person. There is no virtual session for posters. At least one author of the poster presentation should be registered using a full/non-student registration rate and should attend the conference to present the poster.
