Call For Papers

Security and Communication Networks Journal, John Wiley & Sons, Ltd.
Special Issue on “Applications of Machine Learning Techniques to Intrusion Detection and Digital Forensics”

The security of computers and their networks is a major concern. As the computing devices become more pervasive and connected (such as from personal computer running a simple desktop application to embedded systems controlling a critical infrastructure), they face versatile and unknown threats ranging from sophisticated malwares, to less prevalent but still serious attacks like Web site defacement, denial of service attacks, financial fraud and network break-ins. They are both critical and costly and required to be detected in-time. The detection of intrusions often leads to the forensic investigation requiring the acquisition of massive volume of data and their analysis. The manual effort to deal with the problems is costly and time consuming and thus, brings the need of machine learning techniques that are often used to efficiently and reliably perform this labour intensive work.

In this special issue, we plan to present the cutting edge research focusing on intrusion detection and digital forensics with the application of machine learning techniques. The Journal is soliciting submissions based on an open call for papers covering areas that are included but not limited to the following,

Detection of known or unknown exploitable vulnerabilities,
Detection of known or unknown attacks,
Deception systems and honeypots,
Smart phone and Digital Forensics,
Network and host intrusion detection
Anomaly and specification-based approaches
Application security
Spam, botnets, viruses, malwares
Web security
Log analysis
Forensic analysis of large datasets
Online forensic analysis
Forensic analysis of social networks
3D forensic scene model generation and analysis
Network forensics
Data acquisition

We solicit previously unpublished, original research papers. The conference papers with significant improvement will also be considered, provided that authors have clearly identify the improvements in the paper and also highlight the changes to their previous paper.

The guidelines for prospective authors can be found at . Prospective authors should submit their papers online at and no email submissions will be accepted. When submitting the papers, the authors should make sure to choose ‘‘Manuscript type’’ as ‘‘Special Issue,’’ in the Journal's Manuscript Central website, and enter ‘Running Head’ and ‘Special Issue title’ as ‘SCN-SI-038’ and ‘Machine Learning’, respectively.


Submission deadline: 15 August 2011
Acceptance notification: 30 December 2011
