The First International Workshop on Agents and CyberSecurity
ACySe 2014
Web page:

To be held with AAMAS 2014 (
5 - 9 May, 2014, Paris, France

Research in cyber security is nowadays one of the hottest topics in computer science. This is because security is of capital importance to the development of a sustainable, resilient and prosperous cyber world. This includes protecting crucial assets, ranging from Critical Infrastructures to individual's Personal Information, and it spans domains like Cloud Computing, Smart Grid, Virtual Organisations, Virtual Communities, Social Media, Electronic Commerce and many more. Approaches that are intelligent and self-adaptable are required to deal with the complexities of effectively protecting these crucial assets in all these domains. This is where research from the agent community can make a difference in cyber security. Indeed, cyber security is increasingly receiving more and more attention from the agent community. The focus of this workshop is to provide a forum to discuss and advance cyber security by means of agent-based approaches.

Specific topics for this workshop include, but are not limited to:
* Access Control Models
* Adversarial Modelling
* Cloud Computing Security/Privacy
* Collective Decision Making for Access Control
* Contextual Integrity
* Communication Resilience and Robustness
* Critical Infrastructure Protection

Papers will be peer-reviewed by at least 3 reviewers from the Program Committee. Criteria for the selection of papers will include: high quality, clear presentation, novelty of research, relevance to the topics, coverage of relevant state of the art and the relevance to cyber security problems.

Submissions must follow ACM format ( and can be of two types:

- Full Papers (maximum of 8 pages) about completed work or work in progress.

- Position/Short Papers (2-4 pages) reporting views or ambitions, or describing problems.

Papers must be submitted in pdf format via the conference management system, available at:

Workshop pre-proceedings will be distributed in a USB during the workshop. Moreover, formal workshop proceedings will be published by ACM, in its International Conference Proceedings Series with ISBN.

We are also exploring the possibility of a follow-up special issue in a refereed journal, more details to come shortly.
