Submitted papers should be at most 16 pages including the bibliography and well-marked appendices (using 11-point font and reasonable margins on letter-size paper), and should be in single-column format. Committee members are not required to read the appendices, and so the paper should be intelligible without them. Submissions are to be made to the submission web site at http://www.easychair.org/conferences/?conf=dbsec2010.

Only pdf files will be accepted. Submissions not meeting these guidelines risk rejection without consideration of their merits. Papers must be received by the deadline of February 5, 2010 (midnight Samoa time). Authors of accepted papers must guarantee that their papers will be presented at the conference. Accepted papers will be published by Springer in the Lecture Notes in Computer Science series. The camera-ready version of the accepted papers must follow Springer guidelines (a Latex source file will be required).

A paper submitted to DBSec 2010 cannot be under review for any other conference or journal during the time it is being considered for DBSec 2010. Furthermore, after you submit to DBSec 2010, 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 2010, 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.

Proposals for panels should be sent to dbsec2010@unimi.it. Proposals should include a one-page description of the subject matter, the name and address (including e-mail address) of the organizer, and a list of proposed panelists.
