Author Instructions

Authors are invited to submit full and short papers describing original research of theoretical or practical significance to Networking, Systems and Security. Submitted full papers and short papers must describe work not previously published. They must not be submitted simultaneously to another conference with refereed proceedings or to a journal. Full Papers should not exceed 9 pages and short papers should not exceed 6 pages in ACM format. Papers must be submitted in PDF format and formatted according to the new Standard ACM Conference Proceedings Template. For LaTeX users: unzip, make, and use sample-sigconf.tex as a template. Additional information about formatting and style files is available online at: Only electronic submissions will be allowed. All papers submitted to 7th NSysS 2020 need to be double-blind, i.e., no author name should appear in the submitted papers.
