14th International Symposium on Foundations & Practice of Security

December 8-9-10, 2021, Paris, France
Conference website: http://www.fps-2021.com

We are pleased to invite you to contribute to the 14th International Symposium on Foundations & Practice of Security.

The upcoming FPS conference will be held in Paris, France, 8-9-10 December 2021.

The 1st Foundations & Practice of Security (FPS) Symposium was held in 2008, following the Canada-France Meeting on Security held at the Simon Fraser University, Vancouver, on December 06-08, 2007.

Since then, the FPS Symposium has been held annually, alternating Canadian and French locations. After the previous meetings took place in Grenoble, Toronto, Paris, Montréal, La Rochelle, Montréal, Clermont-Ferrand, Quebec City, Nancy, Montréal, Toulouse, Montréal, this 14th edition of the FPS symposium will be held in Paris France.

Protecting the communication and data infrastructure of an increasingly inter-connected world has become vital to the normal functioning of all aspects of our world. Security has emerged as an important scientific discipline whose many multifaceted complexities deserve the attention and synergy of the mathematical, computer science, and engineering communities.

The aim of FPS is to discuss and exchange theoretical and practical ideas that address privacy and security issues in inter-connected systems. It aims to provide scientific presentations as well as to establish links, promote scientific collaborations, joint research programs, and student exchanges between institutions involved in this important and fast-moving research field.

We welcome submissions spanning the full range of theoretical and applied for work including user research, methods, tools, simulations, demos, and practical evaluations. Submissions should be 6-8 pages for full technical papers and 2-4 pages for position papers or demos including references.

We also invite papers from researchers and practitioners working in security, privacy, trustworthy data systems, and related areas to submit their original papers. Special care will be given this year to data sharing, data disclosure, individual tracking, and fake news regarding their impacts on security and privacy.
