Call For Papers

CyCon 2013 will focus on the technical, strategic and legal implications of using automatic methods to manage cyber conflicts. The conference will be organized along two tracks: a Strategic Track and a Technical Track. Legal aspects will be incorporated in these two tracks.

Strategic Issues

Conceptual Framework of Cyber Conflicts
• Defining cyber conflict, cyber war, cyber attack, cyber weapon, etc.
• (Non-)essentiality and (non-)feasibility of a common terminology
• Cyber attack as an instrument of policy – limits and opportunities
• Economic, political, military and ideological aspects of cyber conflicts
• Integrating cyber operations with other (military, security) operations
• Cyber offence and defence strategies and their relations to conventional warfare
• Tactical, operational and strategic considerations

Concepts for using automatic methods in cyber conflict
• Decision support
• Situational awareness
• Situation prediction
• Automated defences
• Autonomous offensive capabilities
• Ethical, legal and operational risks
• Automation of legal advice
• Application of the basic principles of the Law of Armed Conflict
• Command responsibility

Actors in cyber conflict
• Military (active, reserve), intelligence, law enforcement, mercenaries, commercial entities, volunteers, terrorists, criminals, hacktivists, etc. and their role in cyber conflict
• Artificial (intelligent) agents
• Organizational models, missions and functions
• Identifying, recruiting, training and retaining the cyber workforce
Technical Issues

Automation of Tactical, Operational and Strategic Procedures in Cyber Conflicts
• Cyber conflicts from military, political and system control science perspectives
• Asymmetric warfare in cyber conflicts
• Cyber attacks and counter-attacks
• Cyber conflict situation awareness
• Contingency planning for mission assurance
• Cooperative mission risk management
• Novel intrusion detection and malware analysis techniques
• Anomaly detection methods for network traffic and system log data
• Botnet detection and mitigation

Case Studies, Experiments and Systems
• Real life examples, analyses
• Experimentation, simulation and test environments
• Evaluation criteria, metrics
• Cyber conflicts in space, ground, airborne, naval and underwater operations

Cyber Conflict Models
• Formal models and theoretical foundations of cyber conflicts
• Game-theoretic models
• Biologically inspired models
• Statistical models
• Policy-based management
• AI models
• Self-organization and adaptability in cyber defence
• Information fusion, situation awareness and decision support in cyber conflicts

Reasoning and Attribution in Cyber Conflict
• Attribution process of complex cyber attacks, cyber conflicts and campaigns
• Novel methods for attribution
• Effectiveness of existing attribution methods
• Extending cyber conflict attribution process beyond the cyber domain, including conventional warfare, and human modelling

Targeting and Cyber Attack Impact Assessment
• Mission-critical assets, targets and processes in cyber space
• Cyber attack modelling (distributed cyber-attacks; coordinated multi-party cyber-attacks recursion attacks, cyber-storm attacks, cyber-pranks, hoaxes, etc.)
• Attacker behavioural modelling, motivation, intensions
• Threat detection and predictive modelling in cyber warfare
• Cyber attack impact propagation and assessment on military missions
• Mission impact assessment
• Attack verification
• Predicting, assessing and managing collateral damage
