Call For Papers

The 2nd Workshop on Survivability in Cyberspace

January 4, 2011
Kauai, Hawaii

Workshop Theme
Currently, there is no forum that brings together the research community on the cutting edge technology of survivability in cyberspace. When an attacker in cyberspace has out-maneuvered the ability to prevent, avoid, and detect the attack, then the attack successfully breaches our cyber defenses. Such cyber attacks may cause unforeseen damage to our systems, so we must have a dynamic capability to survive and recover from the damage. However, survival and recovery must emphasize maintenance of the overall mission capability rather than on the survival of individual hosts. This ability renders our systems with the ability to ?fight through? an attack. Survivability is the quantified ability of a system, subsystem, equipment, process, or procedure to continue to function during and after a natural or man-made disturbance. Critical systems must be survivable by possessing the ability to tolerate errors or attacks and gracefully degrade with respect to mission critical requirements. Survivability allows critical systems to absorb the punishment of an attacker and have the foundation of system reserves to fight through the attack (Approved for Public Release; distribution unlimited: 88ABW-2009-0904, March 2009).

Though there are some isolated efforts in this direction, there is no common platform that brings together researchers from government laboratories, industry, and academia. This workshop follows upon the success of the 1st workshop and aims to expose ideas and needs for the survivability in cyberspace, and brainstorm the short-term and long-term challenges. This workshop will foster healthy discussions and exchange of ideas between different groups and possibly lay the seed for long-term collaborations.

Workshop Format
The workshop will begin with an invited talk address by a prominent researcher in the field. This will be followed by a series of technical sessions, each devoted to the presentation of papers belonging to a common domain. Each session will end with a mini-panel between the presenters, led by the session chair or a pre-selected devil's advocate. We strongly feel that this format will lead to lively and productive discussions. The workshop will include a special session for the presentation of posters and demos of ongoing research efforts and software prototypes. The workshop will conclude with a panel, moderated by one of the organizers, to discuss open issues and future trends in the field, with the aim of wrapping up the overall contributions of the event.
Submission Guidelines for Position Papers
Position papers should be at most three pages in length and printed in an 11-pointfont on 8-1/2 by 11 inch paper. In addition, each position paper should include at most a half-page bio, organization/affiliation, e-mail address, and phone number for each author. The bios are included in the 3-page limit.
