Eleventh Smart Card Research and Advanced Application Conference – Cardis 2012

CARDIS 2012 – Call for Papers
—————————–
Eleventh Smart Card Research and Advanced Application Conference

Since 1994, CARDIS is the foremost international conference dedicated
to smart card research and applications. Smart cards and secure
elements are the basis for many secure systems and play a decisive
role in ID management. Established computer science areas like
hardware design, operating systems, system modeling, cryptography,
verification and networking got adapted to this fast growing
technology and investigate emerging issues resulting from it. Unlike
events devoted to commercial and application aspects of smart cards,
CARDIS conferences gather researchers and technologists who focus on
all aspects of the design, development, deployment, validation and
application of smart cards and secure elements in secure platforms or
systems.

The eleventh Smart Card Research and Advanced Application IFIP
Conference, organized by the Institute for Applied Information
Processing and Communications (IAIK), Graz University of Technology,
will be held in the Weitzer Hotel, Graz, Austria.
The program committee is seeking original papers on all aspects of
smart cards and secure elements. Submissions across a broad range of
the development phases are encouraged, from exploratory research and
proof-of-concept studies to practical applications and deployment of
smart cards and related technologies. Topics of interest include, but
are not limited to:
– Software for secure embedded systems (operating systems, virtual
machines, … )
– Hardware architectures for secure embedded systems
– Security of RFID systems and sensor nodes
– Security of mobile devices and applications
– Efficient and secure implementations of cryptographic algorithms
– Cryptographic protocols for embedded systems
– Physical attacks and countermeasures
– Secure applications for embedded systems
– Embedded systems networking
– Person representation in embedded systems
– Formal modeling and formal proofs
– Validation and certification of embedded systems and applications
– Identity, privacy and trust issues

Authors are invited to submit papers (PDF or PS format) with novel
contributions electronically using the submission form available on
the following web site:
http://www.easychair.org/conferences/?conf=cardis2012.
Submitted papers must be original, unpublished, anonymous and not
submitted to journals or other conferences/workshops that have
proceedings. Submissions must be written in English and should be at

The main topics of the SA&PS4CS-2012 are detection, discrimination,
and attribution of various activities of malefactors and response to
cyber intrusions and attacks including national level information
operations as well as identifying emergent cyber technologies supporting
social and political activity management and trans-national distributed
computing management.

Objective of the MMM-ACNS-2012 Conference

The main objectives of the MMM-ACNS-2012 Conference are to discuss
state-of-the-art in mathematical methods and models for computer
networks and information security to promote a better understanding of
recent achievements and trends in the computer network security, as well
as making use of recent achievements in the area of advanced information
technologies for computer network and information assurance.
Security assurance of resident information and computer networks’
software is one of the important problems of the modern computer science
and information technology. The problem importance is confirmed by ever
increasing multiplicity and diversity of threads and vulnerabilities of
computer networks, permanently increasing significance and value of
information itself, and by potentially devastating consequences of
successful attacks on integrity, resource availability and information
confidentiality. Unauthorized access to computer network facilities and
network resources, especially in global networks participating in
real-time control operations, may be truly disastrous.
There are several reasons for the complexity of the problem under
study. The growing size of the network, its interconnectivity, large
number of users, increasing number of vulnerable targets within the
network (communication protocols, operating systems, servers,
applications, etc.), and the appearance of effective and previously
unknown types of attacks are among them.
An additional objective of the conference is to bring together
researchers and developers from academia, industry and governmental
organizations to exchange ideas in a broad range of topics among
researchers, security system developers and users from research and
commercial perspective.
Since the scope of the conference covers areas presenting specific
interest for basic and applied research organizations, information about
the conference will be distributed among the corresponding organizations
in Russia and worldwide. So far preliminary agreement to participate in
the conference is received from leading Russian Institutions doing basic
and applied research in Computer Science, Telecommunication and Computer
Security and from companies developing relevant industrial applications.

Objective of the SA&PS4CS-2012 Workshop

The Workshop is dedicated to the methods of scientific analysis and
policy support for response to cyber intrusions and attacks. The main
topics of the Workshop are detection, discrimination, and attribution of
various activities of malefactors and response to cyber intrusions and
attacks including national level information operations as well as
identifying emergent cyber technologies supporting social and political
activity management and trans-national distributed computing management.
The Workshop aims to bring together researchers and practitioners
involved in multiple disciplines concerning scientific analysis and
policy support for cyber security to exchange ideas and to learn the
latest developments in this important field.
This Workshop could promote internationally shared understanding of
the technically supportable indications and warnings for various types
of intrusions and attacks, from the isolated to the highly coordinated,
and from the forensic to strategic.
The Workshop is planned on the last day of MMM-ACNS-2012.

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 policies
– security and privacy in cloud computing
– security and privacy in ad hoc networks
– security and privacy in e-services
– security and privacy in grid computing
– 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 and privacy in wireless sensor networks
– security architectures
– 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
