CFP: Social and Mobile Media for Governance « Digital Government & Society

The International Conference on e-Democracy and Open Government-Asia 2012 (CeDEM-Asia-2012) is a forum that aims to bring together academics, researchers, policy-makers, industry professionals, and civil society activists to discuss the role of social and mobile media in the future of governance in Asia and elsewhere. CeDEM-Asia-2012 will be held on November 14-15 in Singapore.

Call for Papers

New means of interacting with government and political institutions are causing significant shifts in political and social life. The emerging social and mobile media practices, including content generation, collaboration, and network organization, are changing our understanding of governance and politics. While the changes are already widely debated in mature, developed democracies, there is an even greater need to address them in the context of rapidly developing Asian societies. Following five successful conferences at the Danube University of Krems, CeDEM is looking to open a new forum in Asia for the exchange of ideas, networking, and collaboration on the topics of e-democracy and open government. This year, CeDEM is pleased to be working with the Asian Media Information and Communication Centre (AMIC) as its conference organizer and the Wee Kim Wee School of Communication and Information at Nanyang Technological University, Singapore as its main partner. CeDEM-Asia-2012 seeks to critically analyze present and future developments in field, with a special focus on the following themes:

  • Social media to engage citizens, smart & mobile democracy, sustainability of e-participation
  • Mobilization via social media, networks vs. traditional party-structure, online campaigning
  • Communication technologies and their use for governmental transformation
  • Open data initiatives, transparency, participation and collaboration in government
  • Cultures of governance, access and openness, crowdsourcing for government
  • Information provision, mobile devices, service delivery via new communication channels
  • Online communities, innovation, bottom-up vs. top-down
  • Network effects, power laws, long tail, social web

Conference Chairs

  • Nojin Kwak (University of Michigan, USA)
  • Peter Parycek (Danube University Krems, Austria)
  • Marko M. Skoric (Nanyang Technological University, Singapore)

Submission Guidelines

The submission portal will be open mid June 2012.

  • Research papers, case studies and policy papers should be 12 pages maximum and will be double-blind peer-reviewed.
  • Reflection papers should 6 pages maximum and will be selected by the chairs.
  • Workshop proposals should be no more than 2 pages and will be selected by the chairs.

Publications

The conference proceedings will be published (ISBN) and made available online under the Creative Commons License. A selection of best research papers and case studies of CeDEM-Asia-2012 will be published with the open access eJournal of eDemocracy and Open Government .

Important Dates

  • Submission deadline for full papers and workshop proposals: 15 July 2012
  • Notification of acceptance: 24 September 2012
  • Camera-ready paper submission: 15 October 2012
  • Conference dates & location: 14-15 November 2012, Singapore”

NPSec 2012 : 7th Workshop on Secure Network Protocols.

CALL FOR PAPERS
NPSec 2012
7th Workshop on Secure Network Protocols
Austin, TX, USA, October 30, 2012

In conjunction with ICNP 2012
(Austin, TX, USA, October 30 – November 2, 2012)

http://www.cse.msu.edu/~feichen/NPSec2012/

=== Scope ===

The 7th workshop on Secure Network Protocols (NPSec 2012) is a one-day
event held in conjunction with the 20th IEEE International Conference on
Network Protocols (ICNP 2012). NPSec 2012 focuses on two general areas.
The first focus is on the development and analysis of secure or hardened
protocols for the operation (establishment and maintenance) of network
infrastructure, including such targets as secure multidomain, ad hoc,
sensor or overlay networks, or other related target areas. This can
include new protocols, enhancements to existing protocols, protocol
analysis, and new attacks on existing protocols. The second focus is on
employing such secure network protocols to create or enhance network
applications. Examples include collaborative firewalls, incentive
strategies for multiparty networks, and deployment strategies to enable
secure applications.

NPSec 2012 particularly welcomes new ideas on security in the context of
future Internet design, such as architectural considerations for future
Internet security and new primitives for supporting secure network
protocol and application design.

Topics of interest include but are not limited to:

* Security in future Internet architectures (role of security in
future architectures, integrating security in future protocols and
applications)
* Secure and/or resilient network protocols (e.g., internetworking/routing,
MANETs, LANs and WLANs, mobile/cellular data networks, P2P and other
overlay networks, federated trust systems, sensor networks)
* Vulnerabilities of existing protocols and applications (both
theoretical and case studies), including attacks
* Key distribution/management
* Intrusion detection and response
* Incentive systems for P2P systems and MANET routing
* Secure protocol configuration and deployment
* Challenges and security protocols for social networks

The submission website is now available, and papers may be submitted at
http://www.easychair.org/conferences/?conf=npsec2012. Formatting and
submission instructions are available on the NPSec website, at
