Call for papers
The SecSoft workshop aims to gather together novel approaches for providing organizations the appropriate situational awareness in relation to cybersecurity threats allowing them to quickly detect and effectively respond to sophisticated cyber-attacks. The specific target is complementary research works on complementary cyber-security aspects for virtualized and software-defined infrastructures, including but not limited to:
- Cyber-security platforms and architectures for digital services;
- Security, trust and privacy for industrial systems and the IoT (including smart grids);
- Monitoring and advanced data collection and analytics;
- Virtual and software-based cyber-security functions;
- Orchestration of security functions;
- Novel algorithms for attack detection and threat identification;
- Intelligent attack mitigation and remediation;
- Machine learning, big data, network analytics;
- Secure runtime environments, including trustworthy systems and user devices;
- Formal methods for security and trust;
- Novel threat and attack models;
- Authentication, Authorization and Access control;
- Honeypots, forensics and legal investigation tools;
- Threat intelligence and information sharing.
Multi-disciplinary and collaborative research projects are encouraged to submit joint papers describing their integrated architectures and cyber-security platforms, with special emphasis on how they address the challenging cyber-security requirements of softwarized environments and critical infrastructures.
The workshop will accept the following type of contributions:
- short papers [maximum length: 5 pages, including references]
presenting industrial innovations, architectural references of research projects, main outcomes from demos and field trials, and preliminary research activities;
- regular papers [maximum length: 9 pages, including references]
presenting research results or technical developments.
- Workshop paper submission deadline: February 15, 2019
- Workshop paper acceptance: March 22, 2019
- Camera-ready papers: April 5, 2019
- Workshop date: June 24, 2019
