Main Track - SBSeg 2021

The Main Track of the Brazilian Symposium on Information and Computational Systems Security (SBSeg) is the primary means of disseminating of research in the security area within the event. Through it, the community can share its experiences and research results by submitting articles describing solutions that advance state-of-the-art themes of interest to the event. It involves:

  • Two main tracks:
    • Cryptography
    • Security of Computer Systems and Communication Networks
  • Each track has two types of submissions:
    • Full papers (up to 14 pages):
      They must present a research work developed to the point of bringing original and relevant results, duly validated and discussed.
    • Short papers (up to 6 pages)
      They describe a research work in progress, a computational tool, practical experiments, or a combination of these contributions.
  • Double-blind review:
    • A body of reviewers will evaluate all articles following a double-blind review process (without identifying the authors, reviewers, and institutions).
  • Articles in Portuguese or English:
    • Formatting according to the model available on the SBC for publishing articles.
  • Awards for the best articles:
    • An evaluation committee will award the best among the articles presented at the event.

Instructions to Authors

SBSeg 2021 has two main tracks:

  • Security of Computer Systems and Communication Networks
  • Cryptography
In each track, there are two types of possible submissions: full papers and short papers. Authors will have to indicate in the submission which track their work best fits and whether it is a complete or short paper.

  • Full Papers (up to 14 pages):
    A full paper must present a research paper developed to the point of bringing original and relevant results, duly validated and discussed. The presentation of the article must contain a detailed and reasoned description of the research work and consistent conclusions based on the results obtained.

  • Short papers (up to 6 pages):
    Submissions in this category should present preliminary ongoing research results related to any topic of interest to the SBSeg. This category will also accept articles the from industry that present innovative solutions for security system architectures or reports of new experiences on the application of technological innovations in information security.

Papers can be written in Portuguese or English; the format must follow the SBC model for publishing articles, available on the SBC portal. The page limits for full and short papers must be strictly followed (under penalty of being returned without evaluation) and already include title, figures, tables, references, and appendices. The submission of papers will be made exclusively in PDF format through the SBC's JEMS system.

Papers must be submitted anonymously, i.e., authors should omit any information in the article's header, in the text, and in the references that link the article to the authors' reviewers, and their institutions. We recommend reading the Anonymous Submission Quick Guide from SBC's Horizontes magazine.

All papers will be evaluated by a body of reviewers, following a double blind review process (without identification of authors, reviewers and their institutions). To be published in the annals, accepted papers must be presented at the event by one of the authors, who must be formally registered. The full papers will be presented in technical sessions, and short papers will be presented as posters. One evaluation committee will choose the best among the papers presented at the event

Authors of accepted articles will have to sign a Term of Assignment of Copyrights (copyright) to the Brazilian Computer Society to make the publication feasible. Submission of articles already submitted and/or published in other events or scientific journals is not acceptable.

Important Recommendations: We recommended that authors review previous SBSeg publications to see if and how work has been developed in the same field by authors in our community. Besides, we suggest that authors consider the appropriateness of including references to related works published in previous editions of SBSeg (on the event websites or at the CESeg web page), aiming to honor and value the work of our security community.
