PAPER SUBMISSIONS
Submitted papers should be at most 16 pages in the LNCS format excluding 
bibliography and well-marked appendices, and at most 20 pages in total.
Committee members are not required to read the appendices, and therefore 
the paper should be intelligible without them. 

All submissions must be written in English, and only PDF files will 
be accepted (a Latex source file will be required for the final 
version of the accepted papers). The final version of the accepted 
papers must be in the format required for publications in the LNCS 
series. Submissions not meeting these guidelines risk rejection 
without consideration of their merits. 

Papers must be received by the deadline of February 15, 2020 (11:59 PM American Samoa Time). 

Authors of accepted papers must guarantee that their papers will
be presented at the conference.

A paper submitted to DBSec 2020 cannot be under review for any other
conference or journal during the time it is being considered for
DBSec 2020. Furthermore, after you submit to DBSec 2020, you must 
await our response before submitting elsewhere. If you submit your 
paper to another conference or journal either before/after submission 
of the paper to DBSec 2020, we will reject your paper without review 
and will notify the other conference/journal as well. This restriction 
applies to identical as well as to substantially similar papers.
