Call For Papers


Collaboration relies on distributed systems that combine different
resources, often provisioned on-demand for the duration of the mission
or project, and that typically interact through the Internet. Security
is a fundamental aspect of collaboration systems in order to ensure
normal un-interruptible reliable operation. Nowadays, collaborative
systems use new technologies such as mobile devices, smartcards,
wireless networks, high performance networks, cloud and grid computing,
multi-agent systems. These environments introduce new needs,
requirements and difficulties related to security. Hence, besides the
well known threats of systems exposed on the internet, collaborative
systems and technologies face several challenges in the field of security.

This Symposium on Security in Collaboration Technologies and Systems, to
be held as part of the 2014 International Conference on Collaboration
Technologies and Systems (CTS 2014), will focus on security issues
related to collaboration systems with emphasis on secure and trustworthy
distributed environments, Grid and Cloud based resource virtualization
and on-demand provisioning, multi-agent systems, mobile and wireless
cooperation, and encryption for collaboration. The aim is to have a
dedicated forum that fosters closer interactions among researchers and
users communities, providing an excellent opportunity for them to meet
and discuss their ideas. The symposium will address issues related to
the security infrastructure and services design, implementation and
operation. It intends to address new security challenges and present
original ideas and solutions addressing new security requirements,
specific methods of access control that should allow large scale
multi-organizational cooperation, use of mobile technologies and
smartcards, intrusion detection, system recovery and healing in the
context of cooperative systems.

We invite original contributions from researchers in academia, research
institutions and industry on these emerging and important areas of
information technology.

Selected papers will be solicited from the best papers of SECOTS 2014
sessions for submitting an extended version of their papers to a special
issue in a leading international journal.
