8th ACM Conference on Data and Application Security and Privacy March 19-21, 2018, Arizona, USA.

Data and applications security and privacy has rapidly expanded as a research field with many important challenges to be addressed. The goal of the ACM Conference on Data and Applications Security (CODASPY) is to discuss novel, exciting research topics in data and application security and privacy, and to lay out directions for further research and development in this area.

The conference seeks submissions from diverse communities, including corporate and academic researchers, open-source projects, standardization bodies, governments, system and security administrators, software engineers and application domain experts. Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:

  • Application-layer security policies
  • Access control for applications
  • Access control for databases
  • Data-dissemination controls
  • Data forensics
  • Enforcement-layer security policies
  • Privacy-preserving techniques
  • Private information retrieval
  • Search on protected/encrypted data
