NSPW 2012: Submissions

NSPW welcomes three categories of submissions:

  • Research papers,
  • Position papers (10 pages maximum), and
  • Discussion panel proposals.

Submissions should include a cover page with justification and attendance statements. A justification statement specifies the category of your submission, briefly describes why your submission is appropriate for NSPW and highlights the new paradigm proposed. An attendance statement specifies which of the authors wish to attend the workshop. One author of each accepted paper must attend NSPW; other authors may attend on a space-available basis. All submissions are treated as confidential, both as a matter of policy and in accordance with the U.S. Copyright Act of 1976.

NSPW does not accept papers that have been published elsewhere, nor papers that have been submitted to other conferences concurrently. Submissions accompanied by nondisclosure agreement forms will not be considered. Authors uncertain whether their submission meets the NSPW guidelines should contact the program chairs.

All accepted papers are shepherded to help authors incorporate feedback provided throughout the process. In order to ensure that all papers receive equally strong feedback, all attendees are expected to stay for the entire duration of the workshop. Final proceedings are published by the ACM after the workshop.

We expect to offer a limited amount of financial aid to those who absolutely require it.

Papers and justification statements should be submitted through our Easychair system ( Papers do not need to be blinded for consideration.

Questions about submissions should be directed to Program Co-Chairs Cormac Herley ( and Tara Whalen (
