Type of contributions

We will accept papers in several formats. All papers must be original contributions and not simultaneously submitted to another workshop, conference, or journal. The following paper formats are welcome:

  • Work in Progress describing original but unfinished piece of work, based on solid research questions or hypotheses.
  • Position Papers discussing existing challenges and introducing and motivating new research problems;

We welcome qualitative and quantitative research approaches from academia and industry. We welcome meta-analytic as well as replication studies and consider them as original research eligible for full papers. We also welcome negative or null results with sound methodology.


The proceedings will be via publication through IEEE Xplore in a volume accompanying the main IEEE EuroS&P '24 proceedings.
