Call for Papers of the 8th International Workshop on Security in e-Science and e-Research (ISSR 2016)
Zhangjiajie, China, November 16-18, 2016
In Conjunction with
The 9th International Conference on Security, Privacy and Anonymity in Computation, Communication and Storage (SpaCCS 2016)
Zhangjiajie, China, November 16-18, 2016
Central South University, China
Guangzhou University, China
Jishou University, China
Proceedings & Special Issues:
The conference proceedings (including main conference papers and workshop papers) will be published by Springer Lecture Notes in Computer Science (LNCS) series (EI indexed). Distinguished papers, after further revisions, will be published in several SCI & EI indexed special issues (to be announced soon).
E-Science and e-Research, through development of Cloud Computing, Internet of Things (IoT), and Big Data Infrastructures, can be used to support a wide range of research disciplines and inter-disciplinary research. In recent years, the influence of e-Science and e-Research has grown considerably and their scope of applications now covers many research domains, from science and engineering disciplines such as physical, biological, clinical sciences and so on, through to the arts and humanities and social sciences. Supporting e-Science and e-Research often places numerous demands on capabilities associated with Grid, Cloud and Big data infrastructures. One key challenge is with regard to security. Security technologies must support a variety of user requirements and provider requirements such as authentication, authorization, trust, privacy, policy management, and information assurance, all in a user and provider friendly framework. Many e-Science and e-Research projects have developed distinctive security analyses, requirements, and technical solutions for a variety of applications.
Following the success of ISSR-15 (held in Columbus, USA, in conjunction with IEEE ICDCS-15), ISSR-14 (held in Vasteras, Sweden, in conjunction with IEEE COMPSAC-14), ISSR-13 (held in Melbourne, Australia, in conjunction with IEEE TrustCom-13), ISSR-12 (held in Liverpool, UK, in conjunction with IEEE TrustCom-12), ISSR-11 (held in Changsha, China, in conjunction with IEEE TrustCom-11), ISSR-10 (held in Taipei, Taiwan, in conjunction with IEEE ISPA-10) and ISSR-09 (held in Chengdu, China, in conjunction with IEEE ISPA-09), the workshop intends to provide a forum for researchers, developers and users working on security issues associated with e-Science and e-Research to exchange ideas and share experiences. The workshop has emphasis on establishing a state-of-the-art for security in e-Science and e-Research, identifying challenges and discussing solutions for successfully enabling security for e-Science and e-Research. The workshop program will be a blend of presentations of research papers, and discussions about the current status, emergent areas, and trends on security-related issues in e-Science and e-Research.
