Research Forum


The research forum aims to bring together students, researchers and practitioners, showcasing developments at the intersection of deep learning and security. The forum is part of a two-day event in Singapore on Dec 14th and 15th. This forum invites submissions for ‘work-in-progress’ or short research talks. Talks can include emerging hot topics, preliminary research results, practical problems encountered by industry practitioners, lessons learned, exciting datasets, and other topics of interest to security researchers working in deep learning.


To participate as a speaker, please submit a research short paper as per the submission guidelines below. Submissions can be authored by teams. The organizing committee will select a set of finalist teams, who will be invited to present their work in-person at the forum on Dec 14 and during the lightning talk and poster session on Dec 15. Submissions and talks will be divided into 3 tracks:

Datasets: Showcasing the creation of new datasets to spur research activity

Real-world Applications: Showcasing interesting real-world applications of deep learning in security

Models, Techniques, Attacks, and others: Showcasing research on new deep learning models, techniques for analysis of models, adversarial learning techniques, privacy-preserving deep learning, attacks on deep learning systems, and other topics of interest.

The forum will include an evening networking session open to all attendees, invited companies, and students from universities in Singapore.

Scholarship and Awards

For accepted short papers, the forum will be offering scholarships for a number of students, researchers, and practitioners invited as speakers to cover costs of travel and stay for the event.

In addition, presentations in each track will be evaluated for one or more awards by the organizing committee. The Award ceremony will take place on Dec 15 during the main workshop event. Awardees will be invited to present their work during the ceremony.


Submission guidelines and deadlines: All talk proposal submissions are expected to be in ACM style double-column, 10-point format to merit consideration by the organizers. The submission should contain a mainbody with up to 4 pages of content, in addition with an unlimited appendix including the curriculum vitas of all authors. The CV for each author should be limited to 1 page only.

Submissions are due on November 5th, 2017 11:59 pm PST.

Submission website is open!

The final acceptance notification for the main talks will be within one week of the submission deadline. Submissions will be judged on novelty, practical relevance and technical depth. For any questions about submitting a short paper, please contact
