8th International Conference on Security of Information and Networks (SIN 2015)
8-10 September 2015
Sochi, Russia

In Technical Cooperation with ACM Special Interest Group on Security, Audit and Control (SIGSAC)
Proceedings by ACM Press; all papers will be inserted into the ACM Digital Library.

In succession to the successful SIN 2007 - SIN 2014, the 8th International Conference on Security of Information and Networks (SIN 2015) provides an international forum for presentation of research and applications of security in information and networks. SIN 2015 conference features contributed as well as invited papers, special sessions, workshops, and tutorials on theory and practice.

SIN 2015 will feature the following keynote papers and talks:
- Ron Poet, The University of Glasgow, UK
Title: TBA
- Ramki Thurimella, The University of Denver, USA
Title: Some New Results in Keyless Jam Resistance Communication (Joint Work with Hamid Hanifi and Leemon Baird)

Future SIN Conferences are scheduled to take place in the USA (2016) and Australia (2017).


Papers, special sessions, tutorials, and workshops addressing all aspects of security in information and networks are being sought. Researchers and industrial practitioners working on the following and related subjects are especially encouraged: development and realization of cryptographic solutions, security schemes, new algorithms; critical analysis of existing approaches; secure information systems, especially distributed control and processing applications, and security in networks; interoperability, service levels and quality issues in such systems; information assurance, security, and public policy; detection and prevention of cybercrimes such as fraud and phishing; next generation network architectures, protocols, systems and applications; industrial experiences and challenges of the above. Doctoral students are encouraged to propose papers on ongoing research.

Original papers will be considered; submissions must not substantially duplicate work that any of the authors has published elsewhere or has submitted in parallel to any other conference or workshop that has proceedings. All submitted papers will be reviewed by at least three members of the program committee judging its originality, significance, correctness, presentation and relevance. Authors are also encouraged to propose position papers on practical studies and experiments, critique of existing work, emerging issues, and novel ideas under development.

Enterprises and research centers developing, implementing, or using security tools and frameworks are encouraged to propose application / tool demo.

Proposals of half-day tutorials on fundamental to advanced subjects covering practical implementation aspects of security are welcome.

Proposals of special session(s) to be held in the main conference are welcome.

Proposals are invited for workshops to be held in conjunction with SIN 2015 Conference. The workshop proposal theme should be closely related to the conference topics.

Broad areas of interest in security theory, technology and applications will include, but are not limited to, the following:

* Access control and intrusion detection
* Security of cyber-physical systems
* Autonomous and adaptive security
* Security tools and development platforms
* Computational intelligence techniques in security
* Security ontology, models, protocols & policies
* Computer network defense
* Standards, guidelines and certification
* Cryptographic techniques and key management
* Security-aware software engineering
* Industrial applications of security
* Trust and privacy
* Information assurance
* Next generation network architectures
* Malware analysis
* Network security and protocols
* Security challenges in Mobile/Embedded Systems
* Cloud security
* Security Awareness and Education

The conference will feature the following special sessions in 2015:

* Detecting and Preventing Fraud with Data Analytics
* Cybersecurity of Large-Scale and Distributed Systems

The details about the special sessions can be found at


Papers must be submitted electronically via the SIN 2015 Submission Site at Title, author's name(s), affiliation, mailing address, telephone, fax and email of the principal author should be included. Maximum length for the proceedings is 8 pages for full paper, 4 pages for short paper, 2 pages for fast abstract and position statement, and 2 pages for demo and tutorial proposals. Extra page charges apply. All papers should be written according to double-column ACM conference format (

All proposals for organizing workshops, tutorials, demos, and special sessions are expected at the conference e-mail

All accepted papers will be published by ACM Press in a conference proceedings and placed into ACM Digital Library. Extended versions of selected papers will be invited for possible publication in a special issue of the International Journal of Information Security and Privacy (IJISP) by IGI Global ( Each accepted paper must be registered to be included in the proceedings. Papers not presented during the conference may be removed from the online proceedings.
