45th IEEE Symposium on
Security and Privacy

Call for Posters and More!

Since 1980, the IEEE Symposium on Security and Privacy has been the premier forum for presenting developments in computer security and electronic privacy, and for bringing together researchers and practitioners in the field. The 2024 Symposium marks the 45th annual meeting of this flagship conference. New this year, IEEE S&P 2024 is very excited to have a special recognition for AI-Selected “Best” Posters!

Presenting a poster at IEEE S&P is a great chance for researchers to obtain valuable feedback on their ongoing work from knowledgeable participants at the conference. Posters are solicited that present unpublished, in-progress, or late-breaking research, or extensions of published work on security-and privacy-related topics. Additionally, posters presenting interdisciplinary work that is relevant to security and privacy research but was published outside the security community are welcome.

Poster abstracts are due Friday, April 12, 2024   Monday, April 29, 2024. At least one author of each accepted poster will be required to attend the conference in person. Accepted poster abstracts will be posted on the conference website.

AI-Selected “Best” Poster Recognition

This year, we will have a special competition where a vision-language model, i.e., GPT-4V, will judge the actual posters for a set of criteria. The posters receiving full score on the criteria below will be recognized during the awards ceremony. Of course, there are multiple ways by which one can design a poster that is scored perfectly by a vision-language model!

Please be aware that by participating in this context, your poster will be uploaded to a cloud-based API. You can opt out from this competition on the submission website.

This is the GitHub repository that contains the code which will be used to score the posters: And the criteria is listed below. It is worth noting that this criteria might change before the conference date. However, the repository will always be up-to-date.

Criteria for the AI-Selected “Best” Poster Recognition

This is the criteria to be used to score the posters. It is mostly adapted from the Rubric for Scientific Posters provided by the writing center at Harvard University:
