Call for Papers and Participation
Extended Paper Submission Deadline: February 17, 2015

Authors are invited to submit a PDF copy of their manuscript to the Symposium paper submission link at If the submission is for a short paper, indicate that as well.

This Symposium on Security in Collaboration Technologies and Systems, to be held as part of the 2015 International Conference on Collaboration Technologies and Systems (CTS 2015), will focus on security issues related to collaboration systems with emphasis on secure and trustworthy distributed environments, Grid and Cloud based resource virtualization and on-demand provisioning, multi-agent systems, mobile and wireless cooperation, cybersecurity and encryption for collaboration. The aim is to have a dedicated forum that fosters closer interactions among researchers and users communities, providing an excellent opportunity for them to meet and discuss their ideas. The symposium will address issues related to the security infrastructure and services design, implementation and operation. It intends to address new security challenges and present new ideas and solutions addressing modern security requirements, specific methods of access control that should allow large scale multi-organizational cooperation, use of mobile technologies and smartcards, enabling intrusion detection, system recovery and healing in the context of cooperative systems.

We invite original contributions from researchers in academia, research institutions and industry on these emerging and important cybersecurity areas of information technology.

Selected papers will be solicited from the best papers of SECOTS 2015 sessions for submitting an extended version of their papers to a special issue in a leading international journal.

The SECOTS Symposium topics include (but are not limited to) the following:

Fundamentals and Frameworks for Security in Collaboration Systems
Intrusion and Attacks Prevention and Detection in Collaboration Systems
Access and Usage Control in Collaboration Environments
