Recent years have seen a dramatic increase in applications of artificial intelligence, machine learning, and data mining to security and privacy problems. The use of AI and ML in security-sensitive domains, in which adversaries may attempt to mislead or evade intelligent machines, creates new frontiers for security research. The recent widespread adoption of deep learning techniques, whose security properties are difficult to reason about directly, has only added to the importance of this research. The AISec workshop, now in its 14th year, is the leading venue for presenting and discussing new developments in the intersection of security and privacy with AI and machine learning.
Topics of interest include (but are not limited to):
Theoretical topics related to security
Security-related AI problems
We invite the following types of papers:
The authors can specify the paper type in the submission form. Paper submissions must be at most 10 pages in double-column ACM format, excluding the bibliography and well-marked appendices, and at most 12 pages overall. Papers should be in LaTeX and we recommend using the ACM format. This format is required for the camera-ready version. Please follow the main CCS formatting instructions (except with page limits as described above). In particular, we recommend using the sigconf template, which can be downloaded from https://www.acm.org/publications/proceedings-template. Accepted papers will be published by the ACM Digital Library and/or ACM Press. Committee members are not required to read the appendices, so the paper should be intelligible without them. Submissions must be in English and properly anonymized.

All accepted submissions will be presented at the workshop and included in the ACM workshop proceedings.
One author of each accepted paper is required to attend the workshop and present the paper for it to be included in the proceedings.
As in the previous editions of this workshop, we would honor outstanding contributions. To this end, we will award the best paper. The best paper will be selected by the reviewers among all the submitted papers.
In the previous edition, Edward Raff, Richard Zak, Gary Lopez Munoz (Booz Allen Hamilton); William Fleming (U.S. Navy); Hyrum Anderson (Microsoft); Bobby Filar (Elastic); Charles Nicholas (University of Maryland Baltimore County); James Holt (Laboratory for Physical Sciences) were awarded the 2020 AISec Best Paper Award for their work on “Automatic Yara Rule Generation Using Biclustering”.
