Call For Papers

3rd Cybercrime and Trustworthy Computing Workshop (CTC-2012)

*Organising Committee:*

A/Prof Paul A. Watters (University of Ballarat), Prof Josef Pieprzyk
(Macquarie University), Dr Stephen McCombie (CSC), Dr Robert Layton
(University of Ballarat).

Following on from the second succesful workshop in Ballarat in 2010,
CTC-2012 will be held from 29-30th October, 2012, at the Greenhill
Enterprise Centre at the University of Ballarat, and will be hosted by
the Internet Commerce Security Laboratory (ICSL).


Cybercrime continues to be a growth industry, assisted by a combination
of technical factors, such as non-secure hardware and software
platforms, and psychological factors, such as user error or naivety. The
objective of this workshop is to bring together two distinct groups to
encourage further collaboration - those who are working on researching
cybercrime activity, such as phishing and malware, and those who are
working on technical countermeasures.

The scope of the workshop is very narrow, to ensure a complementary
match between capability and need. Papers should either be empirically
or rationally based explorations of problems in cybercrime, or propose
solutions and/or countermeasures to the most pressing cybercrimes.

Example topic areas on the cybercrime theme might include:

New techniques for identifying phishing, malware and botnet attacks
New approaches for attributing attacks to specific individuals or groups
Analysis of scams, including advance fee fraud, romance scams etc
Identity theft including recovery processes
Modelling of the cost of cybercrime to the Australian economy
Novel forensic techniques to identify crimeware

For the countermeasures side, topic areas might include:

User education and/or psychological operations

A major theme of the event will be to plan future research interactions
and relationships between industry and academia.

*Submission Categories:*

*Refereed Papers* All submissions are to be made using the Easychair
system. At least one author of each accepted paper is required to
register and present their work at the conference, otherwise the
paper will not be included in the proceedings. Presentations will be
30 minutes in length (20 minutes talk, 10 minutes for questions).
The workshop proceedings will be published by IEEE CPS who will
submit papers for indexing to EI. Papers should be written using the
IEEE CS style, with up to 12 pages. All papers should be submitted
for double-blind review, ie, no contact or author details should
appear on the submitted paper.

*Industry Demonstrations* Participants are invited to give practical
demonstrations on cutting-edge technologies, or illustrations of
difficult probles that currently do not have good solutions. Please
e-mail the organisers if you wish to give a demonstration - we
strongly encourage industry participants to do this.
