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 10 pages (double column) and short papers should not exceed 6 pages (double column) in ACM format. Papers must be submitted in PDF format and formatted according to the new Standard ACM Conference Proceedings Template.

Information about formatting and style files is available online at

The Overleaf template is available online at

LaTex users have to use sample-sigconf.tex file as the template. If you prefer to use the Overleaf template, change the main document to sample-sigconf.tex file.

Word users have to use interim-layout.docx file as the template.

Only electronic submissions will be allowed. All papers submitted to 9th NSysS 2022 need to be double-blind, i.e., no author name should appear in the submitted papers.
