LACI 2016: The 1st IEEE International Workshop on Log Analytics For Cyber Intelligence

Held in conjunction with COMPSAC, the IEEE Signature Conference on Computers, Software, & Applications.
COMPSAC 2016 will be held in Atlanta, Georgia, USA - June 10-14, 2016

Goal of the workshop
This workshop will bring researchers from academia and industry to discuss platforms, tools, and techniques to store, process and analyze large amount of log data with the intent to gather meaningful information for practical purposes such as monitoring of data security breaches, conducting of forensic investigation, auditing of policies for compliance, and debugging and testing of applications. This workshop will focus on challenges, experiences and lessons learned on various aspects of log data analysis-based intelligence gathering for various embedded, decentralized, and distributed systems, including but not limited to web, mobile, cloud, and Internet of Things (IoT).

Scope of the Workshop
Topics of interest include, but are not limited to, the following:

- Platforms, tools, language supports for storing, processing, and querying log data to gather intelligence
- Log analytics and intelligence gathering for various types of applications (web, mobile, cloud, IoT) and environments (wired network, wireless network)
- Information visualization support for log analytics
- Requirement and design of software and applications to store adequate log data to support analytics and gathering of intelligence
- Analysis and gathering of intelligence from log data under anonymized, obfuscated, and encrypted state
- Analysis and gathering of intelligence from log data obtained from firewall, intrusion detection systems, operating systems, embedded systems, hand held devices, and cyber physical systems
- Threat intelligence from large volumes of cyber threat log data like STIX and CybOX feeds
- Analyzing multiple and dissimilar log data sources to gather intelligence
- Disaster recovery through offline log analytics and intelligence gathering
- Integration of log analytics-based intelligence gathering research into classroom teaching and hands on labs
- Application of log data analysis to provide intelligence support for forensics and criminal investigation
- Impact or need for laws and policies to support intelligence gathering through log analytics
- Experience and lessons learned from log data analytics-based intelligence gathering
- Standardization of new log data format for intelligence gathering

Paper Submission
The length of a camera ready paper will be limited to 6 pages (IEEE Proceedings style) with up to 2 additional pages (with charges for each additional page) printed on 10 point fonts. Authors must follow IEEE CS Press Proceedings Author Guidelines to prepare papers. All submitted papers will be reviewed by at least three reviewers and accepted papers will be published in the electronic conference proceedings by the IEEE Computer Society, indexed through INSPEC and EI Index (Elsevier's Eng. Inf. Index), and automatically included in the IEEE Digital Library. At least one of the authors of each accepted paper is required to pay full registration fee and present the paper at the workshop in person.
