Cybersecurity, at its core, is a very practical field of study. IEEE SecDev honors that by asking for practitioners to share brief submissions regarding their practical experiences in security development. Submissions should provide practitioner perspectives and deeper insights into challenges relevant to building, deploying, and maintaining secure systems and highlight opportunities where constructive security research can promote real-world impact.
(SecDev also seeks posters and tool demos. Information on these solicitations are available on the SecDev website https://secdev.ieee.org/2023/home/.)

- The website for submissions:
Practitioner submissions may be at most two pages, formatted using the two-column IEEE Proceedings style: https://www.ieee.org/conferences/publishing/templates.html.
The practitioner submissions will be lightly reviewed. Submissions should not be anonymized. We strongly encourage practitioners from industry and government to submit, to share their security experiences and insights, challenges and obstacles encountered. Authors of accepted practitioner submissions will be invited to give a short talk during the Practitioners’ Sessions at the conference. The submissions will be included in the conference’s IEEE proceedings.
We are devoted to seeking broad representation in the program and may take this into account when reviewing multiple submissions from the same authors.
