NDSS Symposium 2022

‹ Back
The NDSS Symposium 2022 takes place from 27 February – 3 March, 2022 in San Diego, California, and offers both in-person and virtual attendance.

To foster maximum exchange and collaboration, attendance is limited to those working and studying in the field of systems security. Attendees include university researchers and educators, chief technology and privacy officers, security analysts, system administrators, operations and security managers. 

Top Security Conference

The NDSS Symposium, which was originally the Workshop on Network and Distributed System Security, was first held on 11-12 February, 1993 in San Diego, California. It was organized as workshop of the Privacy and Security Research Group of the Internet Research Task Force and hosted by the Internet Society and Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory. It has evolved over the years, and it is now a top tier academic symposium with several co-located workshops and symposia. 

The Symposium has grown into one of the world’s top security conferences, attracting participants from all over the world and featuring peer-reviewed academic papers, poster sessions, multiple co-located workshops, and keynote presentations on vital and timely topics from leaders in the field.

How the NDSS Symposium Helps to Strengthen the Internet 

The NDSS Symposium encourages and enables the Internet community to apply, deploy, and advance the state of available security technologies. In particular: 

  • Potential new security attacks and vulnerabilities can be identified, mitigated, and details published in an open and accessible manner. 
  • New security technologies can be developed, published, and potentially standardized in an open and accessible manner
  • The next generation of Internet security researchers and practitioners can embark on their careers with a strong network of collaborators.  
  • The academic, industry, and standards communities can better understand the emerging security problems and solutions and will be better positioned to work together to solve them
