    We will be using the OpenConf paper submission and review system as we
    did last year. Full papers, including abstracts, must be submitted
    electronically via the ACSAC web site by 1 June 2003 in Adobe Acrobat
    (PDF) format such that they are viewable in the English-language version
    of Acrobat (i.e., no language extensions).
    Since we use a "double-blind" review system, your paper must not reveal
    the author names or organizations on the cover page, in headers or
    footers, in acknowledgements, etc.
    All submissions will be judged on writing quality, originality,
    relevance, and correctness.  Accepted papers may be assigned to a member
    of the Program Committee to assist the author(s) through the preparation
    of the final paper.  The assigned member will act as the Point of
    Contact between the author(s) and the Committee.
    Papers that have been formally reviewed and accepted will be presented
    during the conference on December 10-12 and published in the conference
    Proceedings.  The Proceedings will be distributed to conference
    attendees and be made available for purchase after the conference at the
    ACSAC web site.
    For more details on the submission, review and publication processes,
    authors are encouraged to consult the detailed guidance provided at the
    conference web site: http://www.acsac.org
    An Outstanding Paper Award will be given to the author(s) of the
    outstanding refereed paper.  Selection of the outstanding paper is based
    on an assessment of both the paper and the presentation of the paper at
    the conference.  Announcement of the outstanding paper will be made
    during the conference.
    The Best Paper by a Student Award will be given to a paper the primary
    content of which was developed by students.  ACSAC provides the
    author(s) of the best student paper with a stipend in recognition of the
    Student authors must provide written confirmation of their student
