Call for Papers: BADGERS'14
3rd International Workshop on Building Analysis Datasets
and Gathering Experience Returns for Security

************ DEADLINE EXTENDED ************

The BADGERS workshop is the venue for research on Big Data for
security. This year, BADGERS will be collocated with ESORICS 2014
in Wroclaw, Poland, in the second week of September. The workshop
is scheduled for September 11, 2014.

In contrast to the systems community, security researchers have
only recently started collecting and looking at Internet-scale,
real-world data (e.g., the EU WOMBAT and the US PREDICT initiatives).
Experimental security analysis performed on such data is often
hampered by concerns such as confidentiality, privacy, and liability.
However attackers have become experts in leveraging the whole
Internet to achieve their goals. To understand the modus operandi
and the motivations of attackers, both the access to Internet-scale,
real-world data and the techniques to mine it for relevant security
knowledge are necessary. Hence there is a growing need to widen the
scope of data-driven security analysis.

The BADGERS workshop is positioned at the confluence of computer
security and general purpose large-scale data processing and aims at
bringing together people (e.g., researchers, practitioners, system
administrators, security analysts) active in the emerging domain of
security-related data collection and analysis for Internet-scale
computer systems and networks. By giving visibility to existing
solutions, the workshop promotes and encourages the better sharing
of data and knowledge. The increasing availability of tools and
techniques to process large-scale data (aka Big Data) will benefit
computer security.

Important Dates
* Submission due: JULY 7, 2014 (EXTENDED)
* Acceptance notification: JULY 31, 2014
* Camera-ready due: August 14, 2014
* Workshop date: September 11, 2014

Topics of Interest
The BADGERS workshop seeks papers in areas related to Big Data for security,
including the following:

* Scalable data collection from networks, hosts, or applications
* Real-time gathering and aggregation of diverse sets of raw data
* Summarization of raw data with respect to security goals
* Attack-resilient data collection
* Characterization of dataset external validity
* Scalability of security analysis with data volume
* Scalability of security analysis with concurrent-attack volume
* Combined historical and real-time security analysis
* Evaluation of result accuracy for large datasets
* Design of realistic large-scale testbeds
* Real-time, incremental anonymization for data sharing
* Successful, failed, and novel models of data sharing
* Sharing of analysis results and supporting data
* Internet-scale sharing of security intelligence
* Legal issues of data collection and sharing

We especially encourage novel and controversial ideas that are not on
the above list. Our goal is to create through BADGERS a venue for
fruitful discussion about Big Data for security.

Submission Formats
The BADGERS workshop solicits two kinds of submissions:
* Regular papers, up to 12 pages - excluding bibliography and well-marked appendices.
Submitted papers including bibliography and appendices should not exceed 16 pages.
* Work-in-progress papers, up to 6 pages including bibliography.
Submissions need not be anonymized. Conference proceedings will be published by IEEE/CPS.
Please use the IEEE/CPS Conference Templates to prepare your submission:
MS Word users should use the A4 sized template.
