Call For Papers

Theme: "Emerging Security Architectures & Solutions beyond 2020"

In keeping with its tradition to bring attention to emerging trends and issues in computer security, MALCON 2016 invites academic research and industry experience papers on the following major themes:

• Security architectures & reformulated solutions: Security of an enterprise can no longer be crafted by considering each security device in isolation. New security architectures are needed that view enterprise security as a composition of the capabilities of individual security products, services, and policies
• Protecting end-points in the cloud: With BYOD, SaaS, and cloud storage, the security zone of on organization is no longer constrained within a well-defined security perimeter. New challenges have emerged for protecting the integrity of an organization’s applications, data, and even user accounts.

In addition to the above themes submissions are solicited in, but not limited to, the following areas as well:

• Combating Broad Spectrum Malware amidst changing reality of network walls and end-point trusted zones.
• Evolving nature of cyberattacks, including advanced targeted attacks, ransomware, crypto lockers, phishing, etc.
• Malware and its impact in social networking and cloud computing.
• Enterprise security in the presence of BYOD devices and smartphone malware.
• Analysis and measurements of real malware incidents, and security architectures.
• Botnet attacks, detection/tracking and defense.
• Malware economics and black market studies.
• Code reverse engineering tools and practices.
• Malware performance, analysis and capture tools
• Legal aspects of cyber security, including risk and compliance issues impacting executive decisions.


Proceedings will be published in printed and DVD form and will be included in the IEEE Xplore digital library.

Submitted papers must not substantially overlap with papers that have been published or that are simultaneously submitted to a journal or a conference with proceedings.
