Call For Papers

E-Science and e-Research, through development of Grid computing, Cloud computing and Big data Infrastructures, can be used to support a wide range of research disciplines and inter-disciplinary research. In recent years, the influence of e-Science and e-Research has grown considerably and their scope of applications now covers many research domains, from science and engineering disciplines such as physical, biological, clinical sciences and so on, through to the arts and humanities and social sciences. Supporting e-Science and e-Research often places numerous demands on capabilities associated with Grid, Cloud and Big data infrastructures. One key challenge is with regard to security. Security technologies must support a variety of user requirements and provider requirements such as authentication, authorization, trust, privacy, policy management, and information assurance, all in a user and provider friendly framework. Many e-Science and e-Research projects have developed distinctive security analyses, requirements, and technical solutions for a variety of applications.

Following the success of ISSR-13 (held in Melbourne, Australia, in conjunction with IEEE TrustCom-13), ISSR-12 (held in Liverpool, UK, in conjunction with IEEE TrustCom-12), ISSR-11 (held in Changsha, China, in conjunction with IEEE TrustCom-11), ISSR-10 (held in Taipei, Taiwan, in conjunction with IEEE ISPA-10) and ISSR-09 (held in Chengdu, China, in conjunction with IEEE ISPA-09), the workshop intends to provide a forum for researchers, developers and users working on security issues associated with e-Science and e-Research to exchange ideas and share experiences. The workshop has emphasis on establishing a state-of-the-art for security in e-Science and e-Research, identifying challenges and discussing solutions for successfully enabling security for e-Science and e-Research. The workshop program will be a blend of presentations of research papers, and discussions about the current status, emergent areas, and trends on security-related issues in e-Science and e-Research.

Scope of the Workshop:
We solicit original papers reporting a wide spectrum of topics related to security in e-Science and e-Research. Topics of interest include but are not limited to:

• Eliciting security requirements for e-Science & e-Research applications as well as Grid, Cloud and Big Data infrastructures
• Analysis of security challenges, threats, risk and issues in e-Science & e-Research as well as Grid, Cloud and Big Data infrastructures
• Security architectures, frameworks, and infrastructures for Grid, Cloud, Big Data and their applications on e-Science & e-Research
• Models and techniques for authentication and identity management in Grid, Cloud and Big Data infrastructures
• Models and techniques for authorization and access control in Grid, Cloud and Big Data infrastructures
• Trust model and management for Grid, Cloud and Big Data infrastructures
• Privacy mechanisms and management for Grid, Cloud and Big Data infrastructures
• Policy models and policy management in Grid, Cloud and Big Data infrastructures
• Information assurance for e-Science & e-Research applications
• Model and frameworks for security-driven workflows in Grid, Cloud and Big Data infrastructures
• Network security and privacy mechanisms for Grid, Cloud and Big Data contexts
• Security for Grid, Cloud and Big Data programming models
• User-driven security models for e-Science & e-Research
• Software engineering best practice in the development of Grid, Cloud and Big Data security infrastructures
• Experiences and case studies on the practical applications of security models and solutions in e-Science & e-Research
