*****************
CALL FOR PAPERS

SIXTH WORKSHOP IN INFORMATION SECURITY THEORY AND PRACTICE (WISTP 2012)
Security and Trust in Computing Systems and Ambient Intelligence Ecosystem
June 19-22, 2012, London, UK – http://www.wistp.org/

WISTP 2012 BACKGROUND AND GOALS
Future ICT technologies, like the concepts of Ambient Intelligence and 
Internet of Things provide a vision of the Information Society where 
the emphasis is on surrounding people by intelligent interactive 
interfaces and objects and on environments that are capable of 
recognising and reacting to the presence of different individuals 
in a seamless, unobtrusive and invisible manner. 
The success of future ICT technologies, some of which are set as 
priorities by the European Union, will depend on how secure they 
will be made, how privacy and individuals' rights will be protected 
and how individuals will come to trust the intelligent world that 
will surround them and through which they will move. 
WISTP 2012 aims to address the security and privacy issues that are 
increasingly exposed by mobile and wireless communications and related 
services, along with evaluating their impact on business, 
individuals, and the society.

The workshop seeks submissions from academia and industry presenting 
novel research on all theoretical and practical aspects of security 
and privacy of mobile and smart devices, as well as experimental studies 
of fielded systems based on wireless communication, the application 
of security technology, the implementation of systems, and lessons learned. 
We encourage submissions from other communities such as law, 
business and policy that present these communities' perspectives on 
technological issues. Topics of interest include, but are not limited to: 

* Security, Privacy and Trust in the Internet of Things
* Security and Trustworthiness in mobile and wireless networks
 including Mobile ad hoc networks, RFID systems, 
 Wireless sensor networks and Vehicular networks  
* Security, Privacy and Trust in Smart Environments
* Security, Privacy and Trust in Social Networks and Social Worlds
* Trustworthy life-logging
* Security, Privacy and Trust in e-Government and Mobile Commerce
 including Biometrics and national ID cards 
* Human behaviour and psychological aspects of security
 including User centric security and privacy
* Lightweight cryptography
* Privacy enhancing technologies (PETs)
* Mobile code security
* Mobile devices security
* Smart card security
* Embedded systems security
* Security models and architectures
 including Security and privacy policies, 
 Authentication and Access Control, and Security protocols

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
Web site. For any questions on the special issue, send email to
pierangela.samarati@unimi.it.
