Originating from every continent, the (record number!) 61 submissions were included in a blind review process that involved more than 28 reviewers (composed of PC members and their delegates) from many different institutions. The reviewers did an outstanding job and the whole process generated more than 190 reviews each paper was reviewed by at least 3 reviewers. Based on the reviewers' reports and the general ACM SAC guidelines for evaluation of submissions, only 10 papers were accepted, that is a tough acceptance rate of 16%, among the lowest in the whole Symposium. Contents cover various aspects of applied computer security. This year's programme is divide into two sessions, chaired by the track chair.
