Call For Papers
The 7th European Conference on Computer Network Defense is organized by Chalmers University of Technology and will take place in September 2011 in Gothenburg, Sweden.
The theme of the conference is the protection of computer networks. The conference will draw participants from academia and industry in Europe and beyond to discuss hot topics in applied network and systems security.
Submissions due: July 4th, 2011
Acceptance notification: 4 August, 2011
Final papers due: 19 August, 2011
Conference dates: 6-7 September, 2011
Topics of Interest
EC2ND invites submissions presenting novel ideas at an early stage with the intention to act as a discussion forum and feedback channel for promising, innovative security research. While our goal is to solicit ideas that are not completely worked out, and might have challenging and interesting open questions, we expect submissions to be supported by some evidence of feasibility or preliminary quantitative results. This year we are especially interested in papers concerning the protection against attacks in "special environments" (such as the ICT component of the smart grid) or protection against attacks that could cause a large societal impact.
Topics include but are not limited to:
* Intrusion Detection
* Privacy Protection
* Security Policy
* Peer-to-Peer and Grid Security
* Network Monitoring
* Web Security
* Vulnerability Management and Tracking
* Network Forensics
* Wireless and Mobile Security
* Network Discovery and Mapping
* Incident Response and Management
* Malicious Software
* Web Services Security
* Legal and Ethical Issues
Format of Submissions
You are hereby invited to submit papers up to 6-8 pages, 8.5" x 11", two-column format. We particularly encourage position papers on preliminary work that shows promise, rather than mature and well-polished papers. Surprising results and thought-provoking ideas will be strongly favored. All submissions will be reviewed by the Program Committee. Authors of accepted papers will be given the option of including their paper in the proceedings of the conference, which will be published by IEEE.
We suggest you to format your paper according to IEEE-CS guidelines.
