Call For Papers

The 2nd International Workshop on Security and Privacy Preserving in e-Societies (SeceS’14)
in conjunction with MEDES 2014
September 15-17, 2014,
Buraidah Al Qassim – Saudi Arabia


Information technologies have invaded almost every aspect of our modern life. The effects of the World Wide Web and more recently Web 2.0, computers, and telecommunications on societies have emerged to cover new form of social cyberspace as reference to digital society or e-Society. In fact, the e-Society is the result of an emerging era of digitalizing different forms of multimedia information making time and space compression a constant evolving task. E-Society represents a revolutionary change in the way people interact with each others’ beyond countries boundaries. It provides individuals, such as end-users and organizations, the ability to easily share and publish corporate data, visions, and strategies. Nonetheless, with this emerging social interaction and the wide range of shared data, several privacy and confidentiality concerns arise. Mechanisms used to harvest social information represent a privacy threat for users in many situations and such concerns fall beyond security administrators’ duties and target end-users in their daily tasks. Approaches proposed in the literature to provide safe data publishing have several drawbacks related, on one hand, to the heterogeneous types of data addressed, and, on the other hand, to complexity in specifying privacy and security rules.
The aim of this workshop is to pin down the latest techniques, studies, and approaches related to security and privacy preserving in the digital society.
Papers submitted to this workshop should be related to the following topics:
• Access control
• Anonymity
• Content protection
• Data protection
• Database security
• Data association detection
• Information hiding
• Inference detection
• Inference elimination
• Knowledge discovery and privacy
• Multimedia mining threats
• Multimedia security
• Multimedia privacy
• Multimedia hiding
• Network security
• Network intrusion detection
• Quantifying threat
• Social networks security
• Social networks privacy preserving
• Security and privacy policies
• Security metrics
• Secure cloud computing
