Present CFP : 2018

15th IEEE Symposium on Visualization for Cyber Security (VizSec) Call for Papers
================================================================================

*** Deadline Extension ***

*** http://vizsec.org/vizsec2018/#cfp ***

VizSec brings together researchers and practitioners in information
visualization and security to address the specific needs of the cyber
security community through new and insightful visualization techniques.
VizSec 2018 will be held in Berlin, Germany in conjunction with IEEE VIS on
Monday October 22nd.

VizSec solicits both full and short papers, both of which will be published
in the proceedings that will be published by IEEE. VizSec also solicits
posters. Authors of accepted papers and posters must guarantee that their
papers and posters will be presented at the conference.

Technical Papers
----------------

Full papers describing novel contributions in security visualization are
solicited. Papers may present techniques, applications, theory, analysis,
experiments, or evaluations. We encourage the submission of papers on
technologies and methods that improve cyber security practices, including,
but not limited to:

- Situation awareness and/or understanding
- Incident handling including triage, exploration, correlation, and
response
- Computer forensics
- Recording and reporting results of investigations
- Assisting proactive security configuration and deployment
- Reverse engineering and malware analysis
- Vulnerability management
- Multiple data source analysis
- Analyzing information requirements for computer network defense
- Evaluation and/or user testing of VizSec systems
- Criteria for assessing the effectiveness of cyber security
visualizations (whether from a security goal perspective or a
human factors perspective)
- Modeling system and network behavior
- Modeling attacker and defender behavior
- Studying risk and impact of cyber attacks
- Predicting future attacks or targets
- Security metrics and education
- Software security
- Mobile application security
- Social networking privacy and security

When applicable, visualization and interaction techniques that effectively
capture the insights of human analysts and/or allow analysts to collaborate
efficiently are particularly desirable.

Submissions including tests and evaluations of existing tools and techniques
are also considered particularly desirable. If possible, making the data
used for the tests available will also be considered positively. If you do
not have real-world data to demonstrate your visualization, you may be
interested in looking at the VizSec Data Sets page: http://vizsec.org/data/

Full Papers should be at most 8 pages including the bibliography and
appendices.

Short Papers
------------

Short papers describing practical applications of security visualization are
solicited. We encourage the submission of papers discussing the introduction
of cyber security visualizations into operational context, including, but
not limited to:

- Cases where visualization made positive contributions towards meeting
operational needs
- Gaps or negative outcomes from visualization deployments
- Situations where visualization was not utilized, but could have had a
positive impact
- Lessons learned from operational engagements
- Insights gained from the transition process

Cyber security practitioners from industry, as well as the research
community, are encouraged to submit case studies.

Short papers should be at most 4 pages including the bibliography
and appendices.

Posters
-------

Poster submissions may showcase late-breaking results, work in progress,
preliminary results, or visual representations relevant to the VizSec
community. The poster program will be a great opportunity for the authors to
interact with the attendees and solicit feedback. Accepted poster abstracts
will be made available on the VizSec website : http://vizsec.org/vizsec2018/

Important Dates
---------------

Papers and Short Papers:
- Jul 22: Submission Deadline (extended)
- Aug 15: Author Notification
- Aug 24: Camera Ready Deadline
Posters:
- Aug 29: Abstract Deadline
- Sep 9: Author Notification

Submissions
