###############################################################


Dear ,

We would like to draw your attention to the International Conference on Security and Cryptography (SECRYPT-2012), which has currently an open call for papers. 

Theoretical and practical advances in the fields of cryptography and coding are a key factor in the growth of data communications, data networks and distributed computing. In addition to the mathematical theory and practice of cryptography and coding, SECRYPT also focuses on other aspects of information systems and network security, including applications in the scope of the knowledge society in general and information systems development in particular, especially in the context of e-business, internet and global enterprises.

SECRYPT 2012 is part of the International Joint Conference on e-Business and Telecommunications (ICETE 2012) that has 5 more conferences with very strong synergies between them, namely:

– DCNET: Int'l Conference on Data Communication Networking (http://www.dcnet.icete.org)
– ICE-B: Int'l Conference on e-Business (http://www.ice-b.icete.org)
– OPTICS: Int'l Conference on Optical Communication Systems (http://www.optics.icete.org)
– SIGMAP: Int'l Conference on Signal Processing and Multimedia Applications (http://www.sigmap.icete.org)
– WINSYS: Int'l Conference on Wireless Information Networks and Systems (http://www.winsys.icete.org)

These six concurrent conferences are held in parallel and registration to one warrants delegates to attend all six.

ICETE is interested in promoting high quality research as it can be confirmed by last year acceptance rates, where from 409 submissions, 12% were accepted as full papers, 16% were presented as short papers and 13% as posters.

The conference program features a number of Keynote Lectures to be delivered by distinguished world-class researchers, namely:
– Venu Govindaraju, University at Buffalo, United States
(list not yet complete)
http://www.icete.org/KeynoteSpeakers.aspx

Submitted papers will be subject to a double-blind review process. All accepted papers (full, short and posters) will be published in the conference proceedings, under an ISBN reference, on paper and on CD-ROM support. DEZO
A short list of presented papers will be selected so that revised and extended versions of these papers will be published by Springer-Verlag in a CCIS Series book. 
Additionally, a short list of papers presented at the conference, will also be selected for publication in the Journal of Information Processing Systems (JIPS).
Furthermore, a short list of papers presented at the conference, will be selected for publication in a special issue of JNW – Journal of Networks

The proceedings will be submitted for indexation by Thomson Reuters Conference Proceedings Citation Index (ISI), INSPEC, DBLP and Elsevier Index (EI).
All papers presented at the conference venue will be available at the SciTePress Digital Library (http://www.scitepress.org/DigitalLibrary/). SciTePress is member of CrossRef (http://www.crossref.org/).

Workshops, Special sessions, Tutorials as well as Demonstrations dedicated to other technical/scientific topics are also envisaged: companies interested in presenting their products/methodologies or researchers interested in holding a tutorial are invited to contact the conference secretariat. Workshop chairs and Special Session chairs will benefit from logistics support and other types of support, including secretariat and financial support, to facilitate the development of a valid idea.

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

***Deadline approaching – October 1, 2011***


CALL FOR PAPERS


IEEE SYSTEMS JOURNAL
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
– human factors in security and privacy
– identity management
– insider threats
– intrusion detection and prevention
– knowledge extraction/representation for security
– legal and ethical issues
– middleware security
– network security
– operating systems security and privacy
– protection from cyberhacking
– security engineering
– secure environments and applications
– secure interoperability
– security and privacy metrics

– 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 and privacy in wireless sensor 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 (http://www.systemsjournal.org), 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
