Tips for submitting

  • Submit early - Submitting early increases the chance of acceptance in the first round of review itself. The more you delay the more competition you have with other papers    that are submitted later.
  • Technical description - The more concrete technical details you provide the better chance you have of getting accepted. Reviewers usually give low score to submissions    that have very small or vague abstract and may not request for more details. The best way is to provide a supporting full technical paper that explains all the
       vulnerabilities, exploits etc in detail.
  • Declining a paper - Please take rejection as a suggestion for improvement somewhere in the paper and not as an offense. Declining a paper does not mean your
       submission is not good. There are many parameters we look at when reviewing a paper, technical in-depth is only one of them. Many times we have to let go of really
       good talks because there is already an accepted paper on similar subject or too many good submissions. We want you to succeed and are only trying to help you in
       preparing you for future submissions. So, cheer up and get ready for the next submission.
  • Review comments - We do not ask our review board for comments.
  • Category - If the submission is (being) presented prior nullcon or if it is an enhancement of an already presented research, please DO NOT mark it as new research as it
       falls under current research.
