Conference website:

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 center of 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. 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.

All submissions must be written in English. Full papers should be at most 16 pages, including the bibliography and the appendices. Committee members are not required to read the appendices, so the paper should be intelligible without them. Short and Position papers should be up to 8 pages. Authors should indicate whether their paper is a “Position paper” to differentiate them from regular ones (“Position paper” should be mentioned in the title).

They include but are not limited to (alphabetically ordered): Access control languages, Adversarial AI and Machine Learning in cybersecurity and privacy Blockchain-based systems security and security services Code reverse engineering and vulnerability exploitation Contact / proximity / location tracking Computer and network security Cryptography and cryptanalysis Cybersecurity and Online Gaming Data brokers and security Data disclosure Data mining and watermarking Data sharing Distributed security protocols and policies Ethical and social implications of privacy and security Fairness, interpretable and explainable algorithms Fake news (detection, prevention, and remediation) Image and data forensics Identity management and Self-sovereign identities Identity theft Information manipulation Information-theoretic security IoT security and privacy Malware, botnet, and advanced persistent threats Misinformation and deep fakes Multi-party privacy Privacy and sensitive data management Privacy and security awareness Privacy and security challenges in e-Services, e.g., eHealth,e-Government, e-Commerce, Privacy Enhancing Technologies, Profiling (detection, techniques, tools) Quantified security and privacy Recommender systems in privacy and security Security, privacy, and trust in Industrie 4.0, energy 4.0, SmartCity… Security and privacy in social networks Security in sensor networks and RFIDs Security of cloud computing and grid computing Security of distributed embedded middleware Security of service-oriented architectures Security and privacy management and policies Side-channel and physical attacks Threat analysis and trust management
