Call For Papers

Your submission must be related to the FloCon 2016 theme, "Network Flow in Operations," describing the theory, creation, implementation, and/or operational use of network analysis using network flow.

Use our online form to submit an abstract of 250-500 words describing your entry, along with the type of entry (i.e., presentation, poster, or demonstration).

In particular, we are seeking submissions related to academic advances in novel analytics that leverage one or more data types using the automation of well-known or novel techniques. Your final presentation, poster, or demonstration must contain sufficient detail to illustrate the analysis conceptually.

Submission Topics

Possible topics for FloCon presentations, posters, and demonstrations include

Analyzing contextual data and network flow
Integrating data from multiple sources (data fusion)
Optimizing and analyzing analyst workflow
Discovering indicators of malicious behavior through automation
Using network flow to produce performance-based metrics
Leveraging "big data" platforms for network flow analytics
Employing scalable statistical techniques
Exploring case studies in threat detection and mitigation
Using operational data visualization and visual display techniques for big, quantitative datasets
Exploring new techniques from new data sources
Modeling networks for threat detection
