GameSec 2024

Conference on Game Theory and AI for Security

October 16-18, 2024, New York, USA

GameSec 2024 Detailed Submission Instructions

All submissions should be submitted through OpenReview. Submissions can be (but do not have to be) anonymized.

Please be aware of OpenReview's moderation policy for newly created profiles in the Call for Papers:

  • New profiles created with an institutional email will be activated automatically.
  • New profiles created without an institutional email will go through a moderation process that can take up to two weeks.

This year, the conference has significant changes in the submission process.
In order to accommodate researchers from a variety of areas that submit to GameSec, we will have the four different kinds of submissions:

  • Regular Long: Regular papers that appear in the conference proceedings.
    These submissions are a maximum of 20 pages in the format described in Paper Preparation.
  • Regular Short: Short papers for work in progress that will appear in the conference proceedings.
    These submissions are a means for researchers to present their work in progress that has some initial interesting results. These submissions are a maximum of 12 pages in the format described in Paper Preparation.
  • Extended Abstract: Regular papers that appear as a one-page extended abstract in proceedings.
    These submissions are a maximum of 20 pages in the format described in Paper Preparation, but if accepted, these papers will have only one page in the proceedings. The goal of this kind of submission is to accommodate subsequent publication in journals that would not consider results that have been published in a preliminary one-page abstract in conference proceedings. These submissions may be under review at a journal (not another conference) but not accepted by the journal at the time of submission to GameSec.
  • Journal Track: Prior published journal papers that will NOT appear in the conference proceedings. These presentation-only submissions are a means for researchers to present their work that has already appeared in a journal to a wider audience. See paper preparation instruction for journal track.

Prospective authors are encouraged to register their paper by uploading title, authors, and a short abstract (a few hundred words, not an extended abstract) by the abstract submission deadline, 23:59 AoE time. Then, authors can update the title, authors, abstract and submit a PDF file with the full paper by the full paper submission deadline, 23:59 AoE time. Submitting an abstract is not mandatory. Authors can still submit a full paper by the final deadline without having previously submitted an abstract.

Paper Preparation

All submissions, except journal track, must adhere to the Springer's Lecture Notes in Computer Science (LNCS) format. For a detailed description, please consult the Author Guidelines for the Preparation of Contributions to Springer Computer Science Proceedings (version of 26-FEB-2015 in PDF). The LaTex2e template can be downloaded (in zip format). As a sample, the source of the LaTex2e template are also available in the scientific authoring platform Overleaf (online). Although discouraged to use, template files for Office 2007 Word and Office 2003 Word are also provided. The authors are advised to carefully read the explanatory typing instruction documents contained within the corresponding archive file. Please note that the wide empty margins are to be expected. The LNCS series will be published in a smaller than A4 cut, and hence the margins will be rectified by the publisher.

Journal track submissions: These submissions require a 2 page submission.

  • The first page should be an information sheet containing:
    • Full citation of the journal paper including url and date of publication. The journal must be either openly accessible OR accessible from standard university subscription OR the authors must be willing to and allowed to provide a copy to GameSec reviewers on request.
    • If the journal paper is an extension of a conference paper (or papers): A statement summarizing the novel contribution of the journal article relative to the conference paper(s).
  • The second page is an abstract containing:
    • One paragraph summarizing the contribution of the journal article.
    • One paragraph describing the article's broad interest and relevance to the GameSec audience.
    • References.

Authors should consult Springer's authors' guidelines and use their proceedings templates, either for LaTeX or for Word, for the preparation of their papers. Springer encourages authors to include their ORCIDs in their papers. In addition, the corresponding author of each paper, acting on behalf of all of the authors of that paper, must complete and sign a Consent-to-Publish form. The corresponding author signing the copyright form should match the corresponding author marked on the paper. Once the files have been sent to Springer, changes relating to the authorship of the papers cannot be made.
