An important mission of The Congress is “Providing a unique platform for
a diverse community of constituents composed of scholars, researchers,
developers, educators, and practitioners. The Congress makes concerted
effort to reach out to participants affiliated with diverse entities
(such as: universities, institutions, corporations, government agencies,
and research centers/labs) from all over the world. The congress also
attempts to connect participants from institutions that have teaching as
their main mission with those who are affiliated with institutions that
have research as their main mission. The congress uses a quota system to
achieve its institution and geography diversity objectives.”

One main goal of the congress is to assemble a spectrum of affiliated
research conferences, workshops, and symposiums into a coordinated
research meeting held in a common place at a common time. This model
facilitates communication among researchers in different fields of
computer science, computer engineering, and applied computing. The
Congress also encourages multi-disciplinary and inter-disciplinary
research initiatives; ie, facilitating increased opportunities for
cross-fertilization across sub-disciplines.

MEASURABLE SCIENTIFIC IMPACT OF CONGRESS:

As of December 2012, papers published in the conference proceedings that
are currently being held as part of WORLDCOMP, have received over 27,000
citations (includes about 2,000 self-citations). Citation data obtained
from http://academic.research.microsoft.com/ .

GENERAL INFORMATION:

SAM is an international conference that serves researchers, scholars,
professionals, students, and academicians who are looking to both foster
working relationships and gain access to the latest research results.
It is being held jointly (same location and dates) with a number of
other research conferences; namely, The 2013 World Congress in Computer
Science, Computer Engineering, and Applied Computing (WORLDCOMP). The
Congress is the largest annual gathering of researchers in computer
science, computer engineering and applied computing. We anticipate to
have 2,100 or more attendees from over 85 countries.

The 2013 Congress will be composed of research presentations, keynote
lectures, invited presentations, tutorials, panel discussions, and
poster presentations. In recent past, keynote/tutorial/panel speakers
have included: Prof. David A. Patterson (pioneer, architecture, U. of
California, Berkeley), Dr. K. Eric Drexler (known as Father of
Nanotechnology), Prof. John H. Holland (known as Father of Genetic
Algorithms; U. of Michigan), Prof. Ian Foster (known as Father of Grid
Computing; U. of Chicago & ANL), Prof. Ruzena Bajcsy (pioneer, VR, U.
of California, Berkeley), Prof. Barry Vercoe (Founding member of MIT
Media Lab, MIT), Dr. Jim Gettys (known as X-man, developer of X Window
System, xhost; OLPC), Prof. John Koza (known as Father of Genetic
Programming, Stanford U.), Prof. Brian D. Athey (NIH Program Director,
U. of Michigan), Prof. Viktor K. Prasanna (pioneer, U. of Southern
California), Dr. Jose L. Munoz (NSF Program Director and Consultant),
Prof. Jun Liu (pioneer, Broad Institute of MIT & Harvard U.),
Prof. Lotfi A. Zadeh (Father of Fuzzy Logic), Dr. Firouz Naderi (Head,
NASA Mars Exploration Program/2000-2005 and Associate Director, Project
Formulation & Strategy, Jet Propulsion Lab, CalTech/NASA; Director,
NASA’s JPL Solar System Exploration), Prof. David Lorge Parnas (Fellow
of IEEE, ACM, RSC, CAE, GI; Dr.h.c.: ETH Zurich, Prof. Emeritus,
McMaster U. and U. of Limerick), Prof. Eugene H. Spafford (Executive
Director, CERIAS and Professor, Purdue University), Dr. Sandeep
Chatterjee (Vice President & Chief Technology Officer, SourceTrace
Systems, Inc.), Prof. Haym Hirsh (Rutgers University, New Jersey, USA
and former director of Division of Information and Intelligent Systems,
National Science Foundation, USA), Dr. Flavio Villanustre (Vice-
President, HPCC Systems), and many other distinguished speakers. To

An important mission of the Congress is “Providing a unique platform for
a diverse community of constituents composed of scholars, researchers,
developers, educators, and practitioners. The Congress makes concerted
effort to reach out to participants affiliated with diverse entities
(such as: universities, institutions, corporations, government agencies,
and research centers/labs) from all over the world. The Congress also
attempts to connect participants from institutions that have teaching as
their main mission with those who are affiliated with institutions that
have research as their main mission. The Congress uses a quota system to
achieve its institution and geography diversity objectives.”

One main goal of the Congress is to assemble a spectrum of affiliated
research conferences, workshops, and symposiums into a coordinated
research meeting held in a common place at a common time. This model
facilitates communication among researchers in different fields of
computer science, computer engineering, and applied computing. The
Congress also encourages multi-disciplinary and inter-disciplinary
research initiatives; ie, facilitating increased opportunities for
cross-fertilization across sub-disciplines.

MEASURABLE SCIENTIFIC IMPACT OF CONGRESS:

As of December 2012, papers published in the Congress proceedings have
received over 27,000 citations (includes about 2,000 self-citations).

SECRYPT 2013 – 10th International conference on security and cryptography

SECRYPT 2013 – 10th International conference on security and cryptography

Regular Paper Submission: February 28, 2013
Regular Paper Authors Notification: May 6, 2013
Regular Paper Final Submission and Registration: May 20, 2013

The purpose of SECRYPT 2013, the International Conference on Security and Cryptography, is to bring together researchers, mathematicians, engineers and practitioners interested on security aspects related to information and communication.

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.

Information theory and information security are hot topics nowadays, ranging from statistics and stochastic processes to coding, from detection and estimation to Shannon theory, from data compression to data networks and systems security, cryptography, as well as many other topics.

International Symposium on Engineering Secure Software and Systems (ESSoS)

International Symposium on Engineering Secure Software and Systems (ESSoS)

February 27 – March 1, 2013
Paris, France
In cooperation with: ACM SIGSAC and SIGSOFT and IEEE CS (TCSE).

Trustworthy, secure software is a core ingredient of the modern world.
Hostile, networked environments, like the Internet, can allow
vulnerabilities in software to be exploited from anywhere. To address this,
high-quality security building blocks (e.g., cryptographic components) are
necessary, but insufficient. Indeed, the construction of secure software is
challenging because of the complexity of modern applications, the growing
sophistication of security requirements, the multitude of available software
technologies and the progress of attack vectors. Clearly, a strong need
exists for engineering techniques that scale well and that demonstrably
improve the software’s security properties.

The goal of this symposium, which will be the fifth in the series, is to
bring together researchers and practitioners to advance the states of the
art and practice in secure software engineering. Being one of the few
conference-level events dedicated to this topic, it explicitly aims to
bridge the software engineering and security engineering communities, and
promote cross-fertilization. The symposium will feature two days of
technical program. The full program can be found here:

New 25-GPU Monster Devours Strong Passwords In Minutes – Slashdot

In a test, the researcher’s system was able to generate 348 billion NTLM password hash checks per second. That renders even the most secure password vulnerable to compute-intensive brute force and wordlist (or dictionary) attacks. A 14 character Windows XP password hashed using LM for example, would fall in just six minutes

Researchers: PATRIOT Act Can ‘Obtain’ Data In Europe – Slashdot

“U.S. law enforcement and intelligence services can use the PATRIOT Act/FISA to ‘obtain’ EU-stored data for snooping, mining and analysis, despite strong EU data and privacy laws, according to a recent research paper. One of the paper’s authors, Axel Arnbak, said, ‘Most cloud providers, and certainly the market leaders, fall within the U.S. jurisdiction either because they are U.S. companies or conduct systematic business in the U.S. In particular, the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Amendments (FISA) Act makes it easy for U.S. authorities to circumvent local government institutions and mandate direct and easy access to cloud data belonging to non-Americans living outside the U.S., with little or no transparency obligations for such practices — not even the number of actual requests.’ Arnback added, ‘These laws, including the Patriot Act, apply as soon as a cloud service conducts systematic business in the United States. It’s a widely held misconception that data actually has to be stored on servers physically located in the U.S.'”
