Call For Papers

SHCIS ’15 – 2nd Workshop on Security in highly connected IT systems
Held in conjunction with
20th European Symposium on Research in Computer Security- ESORICS 2015
Vienna, Austria, September 21-25, 2015 (

Modern society over the course of the past two decades developed an
increasing dependency on their infrastructures in general, and on the
availability and correct functionality of their IT systems in particular.
While in the early days of the Internet revolution not many IT systems
outside the academic world were directly connected to the Internet, the
benefits of internetworking began to prevail by the end of the last
millennium. Nowadays, all kinds of IT systems, from industrial control
systems to nationwide sensor networks, from high-traffic business
platforms to e-health applications, are connected to the Internet and
thus directly connected to each other. Such highly connected IT systems
exhibit their very own peculiarities and need to be studied accordingly.

In this context, SHCIS’15 aims to bring together IT security researchers
and practitioners active in the field of highly-connected IT-systems,
with a strong emphasis on interdisciplinary aspects. The focus of the
workshop is on diffusion of early and ongoing work, with large room being
devoted to presentations of PhD students active in this field and large
scale national and international research projects. Suggested topics
are aligned along a cyclic IT security process for highly connected IT
systems, consisting of the phases “Preventive measures against attacks”,
“Defense against ongoing attacks”, and “Forensics and post-mortem
Examination of relevant IT-security incidents”. The workshop is organized
by the Bavarian Research Alliance FORSEC with focus on the security of
highly connected IT-Systems (

Suggested topics should be closely related to highly-connected IT-systems
and include, but are not limited to:
- Secure distributed architectures
- Secure mobile architectures
- Secure embedded systems
- Security in sensor networks
- Secure cloud computing
- Code obfuscation
- Security economics
- Identity and access management
- Privacy
- Online trust in large-scale systems
- Human factors in security and privacy
- Digital forensics
- Security through virtualization
- Security in virtualized environments
- Security in mobile computing
- Detection of security related anomalies

Relevant application areas include, but are not limited to:
- Virtualization platforms
- Smart grids, smart cities
- Social networks
- Big data applications
- Cloud services
- Business applications
- Transport and logistics
- E-Commerce
