The 18th International Symposium on Research in Attacks, Intrusions and Defenses (RAID 2015) aims at bringing together leading researchers and practitioners from academia, government, and industry to discuss novel research contributions related to any area of computer and information security.

Papers on all topics related to intrusion detection and prevention are within scope, including papers on:

Papers will be judged on novelty, significance, correctness, and clarity. We encourage papers that bridge research in different communities. We also welcome experience papers that clearly articulate lessons learnt and papers that refute prior published results.

Submission Guideline

Reviewing will be double-blind, meaning the authors' identities will be hidden from the reviewers. There will not be a response/rebuttal phase. RAID 2015 will follow policies for plagiarism, submission confidentiality, reviewer anonymity, and prior and concurrent paper submission that mirror those of the ACM (see

RAID 2015 invites two types of submissions:

  1. *Full papers* papers presenting mature and novel research results. Papers accepted by the Program Committee will be presented at RAID 2015 and included in the Symposium's proceedings published by Springer in its Lecture Notes in Computer Science series. Each paper must include an abstract and a list of keywords, and must not exceed 20 pages in total length, formatted in LNCS-style and including the bibliography and any appendices. If needed, we will grant accepted papers upto 2 additional pages to address the reviewers' comments adequately.
    *Note*: unlike in previous years, the RAID 2015 review procedure is *double blind*. All papers should be appropriately anonymized. In other words: leave the author names off the paper, refer to your own prior work in the third person, do not give the paper a title that corresponds to a publicly available technical report, etc. Papers that are not anonymized will not be reviewed.
  2. *Poster abstracts* describing works in progress, or innovative ideas not mature enough to be presented as a full paper. The poster track will provide an opportunity to present early-stage work and receive feedback from the community, especially on thought-provoking or controversial work, approaches, or ideas from students. We also welcome submissions of posters corresponding to papers presented at RAID-affiliated workshops. Posters are submitted for review in the form of an extended abstract that has to be formatted in LNCS-style and not exceed 1 page in length, with a PDF draft of the proposed poster included as page 2 of the submission. In addition, poster titles should always start with the phrase "Poster Abstract:". Accepted posters will be presented at the symposium in a separate session. Authors of accepted full papers are also encouraged to submit and present posters of their paper in the poster session. *The board where posters will be fastened is in portrait mode; height: 2,10m, width: 0,90m.**Please submit your poster data (PDF file) by e-mail ( The deadline for submitting posters is October 21 (23:59 JST / UTC+9). The poster must be A0 size in portrait mode (size W 841mm x H 1189 mm) and PDF format. All fonts must be embedded in the PDF file. We will print out the poster and put on a board in the conference hall. (Updated: September 25, 2015)*

For accepted papers, at least one of the authors must attend the conference to present the paper. Submissions must not substantially duplicate work that has already been published elsewhere or is submitted in parallel to a journal or to any other conference or workshop with proceedings. Simultaneous submission of the same work to multiple venues, submission of previously published work, and plagiarism constitute dishonesty or fraud. RAID, like other scientific and technical conferences and journals, prohibits these practices and may, on the recommendation of the program chair, take action against authors who have committed them. Further questions on the submission process may be sent to the program chairs.

Papers accepted by the Program Committee will be presented at RAID 2015 and included in the Symposium's proceedings published by Springer in its Lecture Notes in Computer Science series.

Authors who are unsure whether or not their submissions might meet these guidelines, or with specific questions about the guidelines, are welcome to contact the program committee co-chairs: raid2015-chairs [at]
