7th International Workshop on Security and High Performance Computing Systems
(SHPCS 2012)

As part of "The International Conference on High Performance Computing &
Simulation - HPCS 2012" (

July 2-6, 2012
Madrid, Spain



Providing high performance computing and security is a challenging task. Internet, operating systems and distributed environments currently suffer from poor security support and cannot resist common attacks. Adding security measures typically degrade performance. This workshop addresses relationships between security and high performance computing systems in three directions. First, it considers how to add security properties (authentication, confidentiality, integrity, non-repudiation, access control) to high performance computing systems. In this case, safety properties can also be addressed, such as availability and fault tolerance for high performance computing systems. Second, it covers how to use high performance computing systems to solve security problems. For instance, a grid computation can break an encryption code, or a cluster can support high performance intrusion detection. More generally, this topic addresses every efficient use of a high performance computing systems to improve security. Third, it investigates the tradeoffs between maintaining high performance and achieving security in computing systems and solutions to balance the two objectives. In all these directions, various performance analyses or monitoring techniques can be conducted to show the efficiency of a security infrastructure.

The workshop seeks submissions from academia and industry presenting novel research on all theoretical and practical aspects of computer and network security, as well as case studies and implementation experiences. Papers should have practical relevance to the construction, evaluation, application, or operation of secure systems.

The Workshop topics include (but are not limited to) the following:
* Access Control
* Accounting and Audit
* Anonymity
* Applied Cryptography
* Authentication
* Cloud Security
* Commercial and Industry Security
* Cryptographic Protocols
* Data and Application Security
* Data/System Integrity
* Database Security
* Digital Rights Management
* Formal Verification of Secure Systems
* Identity Management
* Inference/Controlled Disclosure
* Information Warfare
* Intellectual Property Protection
* Intrusion and Attack Detection
* Intrusion and Attack Response
* Key Management
* Privacy-Enhancing Technology
* Secure Networking
* Secure System Design
* Security Monitoring & Management
* Security for Mobile Code
* Security for Specific Domains (e.g., E-Government, E-Business, P2P)
* Security in IT Outsourcing
* Security in Mobile and Wireless Networks
* Security in Untrusted & Adversarial Environments and Systems
* Security in Operating Systems
* Security Location Services
* Security of Grid and Cluster Architectures
* Security Visualization
* Smartcards
* Trust Management Policies
* Trust Models
* Web Security
* Web Services Security


You are invited to submit original and unpublished research works on above and other topics related to Security in HPC. Submitted papers must not have been published or simultaneously submitted elsewhere. Submission should include a cover page with authors' names, affiliation addresses, fax numbers, phone numbers, and email addresses. Please, indicate clearly the corresponding author and include up to 6 keywords from the above list of topics and an abstract of no more than 400 words. The full manuscript should be at most 7 pages using the two-column IEEE format. Additional pages will be charged additional fee. Short papers (up to 4 pages), poster papers and posters (please refer to for the submission details) will also be accepted for submission. Please include page numbers on all preliminary submissions to make it easier for reviewers to provide helpful comments.

Submit a PDF copy of your full manuscript via using the Easychair submission link at

Only PDF files will be accepted, submitted via the link above. Each paper will receive a minimum of three reviews. Papers will be selected based on their originality, relevance, technical clarity and presentation. Submission implies the willingness of at least one of the authors to register and present the paper, if accepted. Authors of accepted papers must guarantee that their papers will be registered and presented at the workshop.


Accepted papers will be published in the conference proceedings which will be made available at the time of the meeting. Instructions for final manuscript format and requirements will be posted on the HPCS 2012 Conference web site. The proceedings is projected to be included in the IEEE Digital Library and indexed accordingly.


Authors of selected papers will be invited to submit an extended version of their work for a special issue in an ISI Journal (the last special issue is going to be published in the Future Generation Computer Systems (FGCS) Journal - Elsevier).
