ICICS 2022

The 24th International Conference on Information and Communications Security

5-8 September, 2022, University of Kent, Canterbury, UK (+ Virtual)

Call for Posters and Demonstrations of "Already Published Work"

Authors are invited to submit their "Already Published Research" contributions in the form of short "Extended Abstracts" that are going to be presented as posters or demonstrations (demos) at the conference.

"Poster" presentations are based on already published work with the aim of presenting to the conference attendees for additional visibility and collaboration.

"Demo" presentations can demonstrate an artifact that is based on, relevant to, or extension of already published work.

Submissions will go through a light review process to establish relevance to conference topics and interest to conference attendees. Accepted contributions will be presented at the conference in the posters and demos session, but will not be included in the formal conference proceedings. Please note that at least one author of each accepted contribution should register to the conference and present.

Submissions should be in English, as a PDF file with all fonts embedded, in the Springer LNCS format (see http://www.springer.com/computer/lncs?SGWID=0-164-6-793341-0 for more details), typeset with 10pt font, and using reasonable spacing and margins. Papers should not exceed 2 pages in LNCS style including the bibliography. Please include "(Poster)" or "(Demo)" at the end of the title for your submission to indicate the type of presentation you would like to give in the session.

For "Poster" submissions, please include a brief summary of the already published work with a link/reference to the original publication. Alternatively, if you have a prepared poster, you can upload that as your submission – please still include a link/reference to the original publication.

For "Demo" submissions, please include a brief summary of the already published work with a link/reference to the original publication and explain how the artifact is relevant to or extends the work.

Note that all authors of regular papers accepted to the conference will be offered to present a demo as well.

Call for Authors of Accepted Papers

Authors who have a paper accepted to the Conference are also welcome to submit an additional demo or poster proposal to maximise their work's exposure at the Conference. For authors who are interested in competing for the Best Artefact Award, it is required that they submit a demo proposal so they can demonstrate the artefact to a number of evaluators.


There will be two awards to be given as part of the posters and demos session: a Best Poster Award and a Best Demo Award.

Recipients of the awards will receive a certificate from the conference and a cash award sponsored by the Institute of Cyber Security for Society (iCSS), University of Kent.

All posters and demos (from authors of accepted papers and presenters of "already published work") are equally eligible for the Best Poster Award and Best Demo Award. Therefore, authors of accepted papers who submit a demo proposal can in principle receive two awards: the Best Artefact Award and the Best Demo Award. The three awards will be judged separately following different criteria.

Update on 8th September 2022: The winenrs of the Best Poster and Best Demo Awards have been announced on this page.
