Cloud computing is an emerging yet revolutionary technology. It has started changing the ways people live and work. With the rapid growth of cloud and related services, security and privacy in the Cloud have become increasingly critical issues in the research realm of communications and networks security. The introduction of cloud in existing computer systems and networks has changed the security perspectives and measures, consequently affecting how crime related digital evidence is retrieved, processed, and presented in this environment.
The International Workshop on Cloud Security and Forensics (IWCSF 2015), aptly named for its goals, is a one-day research workshop organized with the objective of bringing together top researchers working on the intersection of the Security of Cloud computing and storage as well as cyber forensics and cyber law to present and discuss their latest research results and ideas, thereby promoting the development and the evolution of this combined body of knowledge. All submissions enabling cross-pollination of ideas on cloud security, cloud privacy, cloud forensics, cyber law, and eDiscovery are welcome. IWCSF 2015 encourages and accepts novel, innovative, and previously unpublished works. Topics include, but are not limited to:

· Infrastructure Cloud Security
· Data and Storage Security in Cloud
· Cloud Access Control
· Cloud Security Management
· Security Hacking and Countermeasures in the Cloud
· Cloud Risk Management and Disaster Recovery
· Cloud Auditing and Compliance
· Security As a Cloud Services
· Mobile Cloud Security and Privacy
· Cyber Law and Terrorism in the Cloud
· Cloud Forensics Process and Models
· Cloud Forensic Data Acquisition
· Cloud Digital Evidence Management
· Cloud Auditing and Compliance
· Cloud Digital Evidence Analysis and Presentation
· Mobile and Wireless Cloud Forensics
· Cloud eDiscovery

The workshop organizers cordially invite submissions of original research work to The International Workshop on Cloud Security and Forensics (IWCSF 2015), in conjunction with The 2015 IEEE/CIC International Conference on Communications in China, to be held on November 2-4, 2015 in Shenzhen, China.
