= Paper Submission =
Contributions should reflect original research, developments, studies and experience. Submitted papers should not exceed 16 pages (including references and appendices) in Springer LNCS format. Submitted papers must not substantially overlap with papers that have been published or that are simultaneously submitted to a journal or a conference with proceedings.
All submitted papers will be judged based on their quality and relevance through double-blind reviewing, where the identities of the authors are withheld from the reviewers. As an author, you are required to make a good-faith effort to preserve the anonymity of your submission, while at the same time allowing the reader to fully grasp the context of related past work, including your own. Minimally, please take the following steps when preparing your submission:
* Remove the names and affiliations of authors from the title page.
* Remove acknowledgment of identifying names and funding sources.
* Use care in referring to related work, particularly your own. Do not omit references to provide anonymity, as this leaves the reviewer unable to grasp the context. Instead, reference your past work in the third person, just as you would any other piece of related work by another author.
* Papers must not exceed 16 pages.
* Submit the paper at

The poster exhibition gives Master's and PhD students the opportunity to expose and discuss their security research with other NordSec participants. Awards for the best posters will be based on votes cast by conference participants. Please submit an extended abstract (1 page) of your poster topic. If you abstract is accepted, you are expected to create the full poster, print it yourself and present it at the conference's poster exhibition.
