Call For Papers

To be held in conjunction with the 11th International Conference on Availability, Reliability and Security (ARES 2016 – http://www.ares-conference.eu).

August 31 – September 2, 2016
Salzburg, Austria

The volume and technical sophistication of malware are constantly increasing. Malware writers have recently developed advanced techniques to evade detection and attack strategies that increase the potential harm caused by malware. The large number and types of devices that can be affected by malware makes the malware detection problem of vital interest to a wide spectrum of computer users. Moreover, recent studies demonstrate that the evolutionary pace of evasion techniques has been much faster than that of anti-malware. This scenario makes urgent the development of a new generation of effective solutions for detecting and removing malware. For these reasons, MWA aims to bring together experts from academia, industry, government, and law enforcement who are interested in advancing the state of the art in malware analysis by exchanging their knowledge, results, ideas, and experiences. The goal of the workshop is to provide a relaxed atmosphere that promotes discussion and free exchange of ideas, with a sound academic backing. The focus of this workshop is not restricted to techniques for malware detection, but also includes discussion of new models of malware and guidelines for limiting malware diffusion that can be utilized by governments, industries, and other organizations to defend against cyber attacks.
Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:

• Theoretical aspects and new directions in Broad Spectrum Malware related research
• Novel malware detection techniques
• Targeted Attacks
• Smartphone Malware
• Analysis and measurements of real malware incidents
• Worms, viruses and other propagating Malware
• Spyware, keystroke loggers, information theft Malware
• Honeypots and other sample collection methodologies
• Botnet attacks, detection/tracking and defense
• Malware economics and black market studies
• Code reverse engineering tools and practices
• Malware performance, analysis and capture tools
• Anti-spam and anti-phishing techniques and practices
• Malware for SCADA Systems
• Malware and its impact in social networking and cloud computing
• Rootkit and virtualization techniques
• Malware in wireless mobile devices

Best papers will be selected for publication in a Special Issue of the Journal in Computer Virology and Hacking Techniques, published by Springer Verlag.
