- Network security: superposition networks, virtual networks, wireless networks
- Security incident response
- Security in mobile and embedded systems
- Security in ubiquitous and pervasive computing
- Security of applications (Digital TV, E-banking, etc)
- Security of smart grids, smart meters and smart houses

Submitted papers should describe relevant research, experiment reports and case studies. Submission will be accepted solely through SBC's JEMS system. Event JEMS' URL will be made available soon. All submissions must be anonymous, that is, they should not reveal information in the header, body or references that could easily be used to infer the authors' identity.


Articles can be submitted in one of two categories:


1 - Full papers - a full, or complete, paper should present research work developed to the point of producing original and relevant results, fully analyzed and validated. Moreover, the paper's presentation should contain a careful and well-based description of the research, as well as conclusions which are consistent with the obtained results.


2 - Extended abstracts - an extended abstract presents research results that, albeit original, are still in a preliminary stage of development. The objective of this category is to provide an opportunity for the presentation and discussion of good ideas, even if not fully developed or validated.


Authors should submit their work in only ONE of the two categories above. At the time of submission, authors should check whether the correct choice of category was made. Full papers and extended abstracts will have different review criteria. Therefore, a paper's category cannot be altered after submission.


Articles can be submitted in Portuguese or English, only in PDF format. The text should be formatted using the SBC template available at (click on "Documents" at the CONTENT menu, then click on "Templates for Articles and Book Chapters"). For directly download click here.


Full papers have a limit of 14 pages, including figures, tables, references and appendix. Extended abstracts have a limit of 4 pages. In addition to these pages, authors will also be allowed to submit an additional material, which will not appear in the proceedings, containing information which may be relevant for the review process. The total number of complementary pages is limited to 7 pages for full papers and 4 pages for extended abstracts.


Papers will undergo a double-blind review process by the Program Committee. Accepted papers (in any of the two categories) must be presented by one of the registered authors in order to be published in the Proceedings of the 13th SBSeg. Full and extended abstract will be published in different sections of the proceedings. The PC will also select the best among the accepted and presented full papers.


NOTE: Articles must have title, author(s), abstract and keywords registered by the June 17 deadline, 23:55h, Brasilia time. Once registered, papers can be submitted until the June 24 deadline, 23:55h, Brasilia time. Only articles registered by the June 17 deadline will be accepted for submission.
