The Second International Workshop on Emerging Cyberthreats and Countermeasures
(co-located with the International Conference on Availability, Reliability and
Security, ARES 2014) aims at bringing together researchers and practitioners
working in different areas related to cybersecurity. All unveilings regarding
massive worldwide online surveillance in the past year led to a somewhat changed
cyber world. We want to contribute to the current discussions about all technical
aspects of this problem. Therefore this years' workshop focuses on new Targeted
Attacks, Malware and all aspects of Privacy. Contributions demonstrating current
weaknesses and threats as well as new countermeasures are warmly welcome.

Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:


- Novel Attacks against Computers and Networks
- Targeted Attacks
- Malware Detection and Analysis
- Mobile Malware
- Botnet Detection, Analysis and Mitigation
- Underground Economy
- Cyberwarfare, Cyberespionage


- Network Security

Submission Guidelines
Authors are invited to submit papers in Conference Publishing Services (CPS)
Proceedings Manuscripts style (two columns, single-spaced, including figures
and references, using 10 pt fonts, and number each page). Please consult the
Author Guidelines at the following web page:

We solicit the submission of research and application papers (8 pages)
representing original, previously unpublished work. Submitted papers will be
evaluated based on originality, significance, technical soundness, and clarity
of exposition. We also explicitly encourage submission of work in progress
(currently not finished and/or evaluated) to get feedback and discussions on
new research ideas.

Duplicate submissions are not allowed. A submission is considered to be a
duplicate submission if it has been submitted to (or if it has been already
accepted to be published in) other conferences/workshops/journals. Duplicate
submissions thus will be automatically rejected without review.

Contact author must provide the following information: Paper title, authors'
name(s), affiliations, postal address, phone, fax, and e-mail address of the
author(s), about 200-250 word abstract, and about five keywords. Paper
registration and submission is done through the ARES Paper Management System
at the following address:

Submission of a paper implies that should the paper be accepted, at least one
of the authors will register for the ARES conference and present the paper in
the workshop. Guidelines for preparing and submitting the final manuscript(s)
will be given after the notification of acceptance.

This workshop requires anonymized submissions, so please make sure that
submitted papers contain neither author names nor affiliations. Papers should
avoid revealing their authors identity in the text. When referring to your
previous work, do so in the third person, as though it were written by someone

All accepted papers of ARES 2013 and associated workshops were published as
ISBN proceedings published by Conference Publishing Services (CPS):
