SeCIHD 2011 : 2011 International Workshop on Security and Cognitive Informatics for Homeland Defense
Call For Papers
2011 International Workshop on
Security and Cognitive Informatics for Homeland Defense
August 22-26, 2011, Vienna, Austria
In conjunction with ARES 2011
## HOT NEWS
Authors of selected papers accepted and presented at the conference will be invited to submit their work with extended results in the specials issues or regular ones of the following journals:
- Journal of Internet Technology (SCIE)
- Computers & Electrical Engineering (SCIE)
- Computing And Informatics (SCIE)
Security subjects are becoming hugely important in the light of the development and deployment of new Homeland Defense solutions. Such solutions require the design of new computer systems and techniques allowing security procedures to be executed on many different planes, from system, communication and organization security to the security of the state and ensuring its defense capabilities. Advanced IT technologies based on intelligent algorithms that can analyze group behavior and interpret complex patterns or situations are increasingly frequently becoming the building blocks of the above solutions. In this context, it is worth noting research that combines security and defense aspects with achievements in designing advanced systems for the acquisition and sophisticated semantic analysis of complex image patterns and group behaviors. Such systems use cognitive models of semantic interpretation and can be applied to develop e.g. algorithms and protocols used for the security of computer systems themselves, but also to ensure the confidentiality and security of communication networks. They can also be employed to develop globally understood safe solutions connected with activities to strengthen national defense capability.

## Author Instruction
Authors are invited to submit original papers:
they must not substantially duplicate work that any of the authors have published elsewhere or have submitted in parallel to any other conferences that have proceedings.
Submissions must be in English and conform to the "Springer LNCS Series" format.
Please use the LNCS templates and style files available from http://www.springer.com/computer/lncs?SGWID=0-164-7-72376-0
for templates (MS Word or Latex only).
The proceedings of the workshop will be published by Springer LNCS.
Submissions must not exceed more than 16 pages, including tables and figures, and must be in PDF only.
Submission of a paper implies that should the paper be accepted, at least one of the authors will register and present the paper at the workshop.
Each paper needs to be submitted to the workshop via the easychair: https://www.easychair.org/conferences/?conf=secihd11
## Proceedings & Special Issue
Proceedings of the workshop will be published by Springer Lecture Notes in Computer Science (LNCS) with IFIP logo (indexed by EI).
The proceedings will be available at the workshop.
At least one author of an accepted paper must register at the ARES 2011 site and present the paper at the workshop.
There will be a special issue of Journal of Internet Technology (JIT), which is indexed by SCIE (http://jit.ndhu.edu.tw/englisha.php).
This special issue will be mainly composed of the extended versions of the selected papers presented at the workshop.
Also, other selected papers will be invited to be extended
for the following journals:
- Computers & Electrical Engineering [ELSEVIER, SCIE]
- Computing And Informatics (CAI) [SCIE]
