CMS 2011 : 12th Joint IFIP TC6 and TC11 Conference on Communications and Multimedia Security
Call For Papers
CMS2011 is the 12th Conference in the "Communications and Multimedia Security" series. The series is a joint effort of IFIP Technical Committees TC6 (Communication Systems) and TC11 (Security and Privacy Protection in Information Processing Systems). The conference will be hosted by Research group MSEC from the Department Industrial Engineering of the Katholieke Hogeschool Sint-Lieven, Gent, Belgium. The size of the programme committee, consisting of international experts in this field, proves the interest of the research community. Conference proceedings will be published by Springer. There will be a best paper award.
The conference provides a forum for engineers and scientists in information security. Both state-of-the-art issues and practical experiences as well as new trends in these areas will be once more the focus of interest just like at preceding conferences. This year, the conference will address in particular security and privacy issues in mobile contexts, web services (including social networking) and ubiquitous environments.
We solicit papers describing original ideas and research results on topics that include, but are not limited to:
* applied cryptography
* secure documents and archives
* multimedia systems security
* digital watermarking
* distributed DRM policies
* attack resistant rendering engines
* adaptive anomaly detection
* censorship resistance
* risk management

Instruction for authors
The conference will include two refereed paper tracks: the Research track and the Industry/Government/Work-in-progress track. In addition, the conference will also feature a poster session.
Paper submissions for the Research track must be written in English, formatted in the conference style and limited to 12 pages. The paper must be anonymous, with no author names, affiliations, acknowledgements, or obvious references. Authors are requested to submit original papers only. Papers that have previously been published and papers that are currently being considered for publication by another journal or conference are not eligible. Each paper must include a short abstract and a list of keywords indicating subject classification. Its introduction should summarize the contributions of the paper at a level appropriate for a non-specialist reader.
Paper submissions for the Industry/Government/Work-in-progress track are limited to 6 pages. These papers highlight applications or present work-in-progress. They should also address challenges, lessons learnt or research issues arising out of - both successful and unsuccessful - deployment of such applications. Note, however, that sufficient technical content is required.
For poster submissions, a title and an abstract (max. 2 pages) is required. Accepted posters will be published in the proceedings as extended abstract.
All submitted papers will be refereed by members of the Programme Committee for correctness, originality, relevance to the conference and quality of presentation. Acceptance of a paper or poster means an obligation for at least one of the authors to attend the conference and present the paper or poster. The most outstanding research paper, presented at the conference, will receive a "Best paper award". The proceedings will be published by Springer.
The proceedings will be published by Springer. Authors will have to sign the IFIP copyright assignment form (and not the standard LNCS Copyright Form).
