October 4-5, 2007
The second APWG eCrime Researchers Summit will be hosted by Carnegie Mellon CyLab, October 4-5, 2007, in Pittsburgh, PA.
Original papers on all aspects of electronic crime are solicited for submission to eCrime '07. Topics of relevance include but are not limited to:
Accepted papers will appear in the ACM Digital Library as part of the ACM International Conference Proceedings Series. In addition, cash awards will be given for the best paper overall and the best student co-authored paper. A limited number of cash travel awards will also be made to student authors of papers and posters.
Instructions for Authors
Submissions must be anonymous, with no author names, affiliations, acknowledgments, or obvious references. Submissions should be in English, in PDF format with all fonts embedded, formatted using the ACM SIG proceedings template at http://www.acm.org/sigs/pubs/proceed/template.html (LaTeX users should use template Option 2). They should not exceed 12 letter-sized pages, not counting the bibliography and appendices. Papers should begin with a title, abstract, and an introduction that clearly summarizes the contributions of the paper at a level appropriate for a non-specialist reader. Papers should contain a scholarly exposition of ideas, techniques, and results, including motivation, relevance to practical applications, and a clear comparison with related work. Committee members are not required to read appendices, and papers should be intelligible without them. Submitted papers risk being rejected without consideration of their merits if they do not follow all the above guidelines. Submissions must not substantially duplicate work that was published elsewhere, or work that any of the authors has submitted in parallel to any other conference or workshop that has proceedings.
Authors will be asked to indicate whether their submissions should be considered for the best student paper award; any paper co-authored by a full-time student is eligible for this award.
Authors of accepted papers must guarantee that their paper will be presented at the conference. A limited number of stipends are available to those unable to obtain funding to attend the conference. Students whose papers are accepted and who will present the paper themselves are given priority to receive such assistance. Requests for stipends should be addressed to the general chair after July 15.
Submit your paper electronically on the conference web site. A successful submission will display a web page confirming it, and a confirmation email is sent to the corresponding author. Please make sure you receive that confirmation email when you submit, and follow the directions in that email if you require any follow up.
We also seek poster abstracts describing recent or ongoing research or experience in all areas related to the prevention of electronic crime. Submission of late breaking results and work in progress is especially encouraged. Posters will not be published, and thus may substantially overlap published papers or papers simultaneously submitted to a conference or journal. Submissions should follow the same formatting instructions as refereed papers, but should be at most two pages and need not be blinded or include abstracts, keywords, copyright boxes, etc. Poster abstract submissions are due August 27.
The conference will include a poster session in which authors will exhibit their posters. Note, poster abstracts should be formatted like short papers, not like posters. Authors of accepted posters will be sent information about how to prepare and format posters for the conference.
Submit your poster electronically on the conference web site. A successful submission will display a web page confirming it, and a confirmation email is sent to the corresponding author. Please make sure you receive that confirmation email when you submit, and follow the directions in that email if you require any follow up.
