ACM SIGSAC announces the continuation of its recently launched annual ACM Conference on Data and Applications Security. The second conference will be held February 7-9 2012 in Hilton Palacio Del Rio, San Antonio, Texas. With rapid global penetration of the Internet and smart phones and the resulting productivity and social gains, the world is becoming increasingly dependent on its cyber infrastructure. Criminals, spies and predators of all kinds have learnt to exploit this landscape much quicker than defenders have advanced in their technologies. Security and Privacy has become an essential concern of applications and systems throughout their lifecycle. Security concerns have rapidly moved up the software stack as the Internet and web have matured. The security, privacy, functionality, cost and usability tradeoffs necessary in any practical system can only be effectively achieved at the data and application layers. This new conference series provides a dedicated venue for high-quality research in this arena, and seeks to foster a community with this focus in cyber security.

Data and the applications that manipulate data are the crucial assets in today's information age. With the increasing drive towards availability of data and services anytime anywhere, security and privacy risks have increased. Vast amounts of privacy-sensitive data are being collected today by organizations for a variety of reasons. Unauthorized disclosure, modification, usage or denial of access to these data and corresponding services may result in high human and financial costs. New applications such as social networking and social computing provide value by aggregating input from numerous individual users and/or the mobile devices they carry with them and computing new information of value to society and individuals. To achieve efficiency and effectiveness in traditional domains such as healthcare there is a drive to make these records electronic and highly available. The need for organizations and government agencies to share information effectively is underscored by rapid innovations in the business world that require close collaboration across traditional boundaries and the dramatic failure of old-style approaches to information protection in government agencies in keeping information too secret to connect the dots. Security and privacy in these and other arenas can be meaningfully achieved only in context of the application domain.

Data and applications security and privacy has rapidly expanded as a research field with many important challenges to be addressed. The goal of the conference is to discuss novel exciting research topics in data and application security and privacy and to lay out directions for further research and development in this area. The conference seeks submissions from diverse communities, including corporate and academic researchers, open source projects, standardization bodies, governments, system and security administrators, software engineers and application domain experts. Topics include (but not limited to):

Application layer security policies Secure information sharing

Authorization /Access Control for Applications Secure knowledge management

Authorization/Access Control for Databases Secure multiparty computations

Data dissemination controls Secure software development

Data forensics Securing data/apps on untrusted platforms

Enforcement layer security policies Securing the semantic web

Privacy preserving techniques Security and Privacy in GIS/Spatial Data

Private information retrieval Security and Privacy in Healthcare

Search on protected/encrypted data Security policies for databases

Secure auditing Social computing security and privacy

Secure collaboration Social networking security and privacy

Secure data provenance Trust metrics for application, data and user

Secure electronic commerce Web application security

IEEE SYSTEMS JOURNAL Special Issue on Security and Privacy in Complex Systems


Special Issue on Security and Privacy in Complex Systems

Today's information society relies on a globally interconnected
infrastructure composed of diverse and widely distributed systems. It
is of utmost importance to ensure proper protection to such complex
systems, or systems-of-systems, to ensure security, privacy, and
availability of the infrastructure as well as of resources and
information it provides and manages. The problem is far from trivial,
due to the criticality and the social impact of the applications and
services relying on this global infrastructure, as well as the
complexity given by the co-existence and co-operation of, possibly
heterogeneous, component systems.
The goal of this special issue is to collect high-quality
contributions on security and privacy in complex systems and
systems-of-systems. We solicit submissions from academia, industry,
and government presenting novel and original research on all
theoretical and practical aspects of security and privacy in complex
systems. The focus of the special issue spans security and privacy
theory, technology, methodology, and applications in complex systems.
Submitted papers should therefore explicitly address issues in the
complex system scenario. Topics of interest include, but are not
limited, to the ones listed below provided that they are treated
with specific focus on the complex system scenario.

– access control
– anonymity
– applied cryptography
– authentication
– biometric security and privacy
– cyber warfare and security
– complex systems security
– computer forensics
– critical infrastructure protection
– data and application security
– data protection
– data/system integrity
– dependability, reliability, and availability
– formal methods for security and privacy

– security and privacy in mobile systems
– security and privacy in monitoring systems
– security and privacy in industrial systems
– security and privacy in pervasive/ubiquitous computing
– security and privacy in sensor networks
– security and privacy in smart grid and distributed generation systems
– security and privacy in social applications and networks

– security management in complex scenarios
– social implications of security and privacy
– surveillance systems
– threats, vulnerabilities, and risk management
– transportation systems
– trust management
– usable security for complex systems
– verification and validation of complex systems
– web service security

Submitted papers must not be simultaneously submitted to a journal or a
conference with proceedings. Extended versions of prior work should provide
sufficient novel and original technical content; prior publications should
be explicitly referenced in the bibliography, and comparison and added
value with respect to prior publications should be discussed in the text.
All manuscripts for this special issue should be uploaded via the IEEE
Systems Journal Web site (, in the section
dedicated to the special issue, by the deadline of October 1, 2011, and
should follow formatting and submission instructions available at the
Web site. For any questions on the special issue, send email to
