CALL FOR PAPERS
9th International Symposium on Foundations & Practice of Security (FPS 2016)
October 24-25-26 2016 / Québec City, Québec, Canada
Protecting the communication and data infrastructure of an increasingly inter-connected world has become vital to the normal functioning of all aspects of our world. Security has emerged as an important scientific discipline whose many multifaceted complexities deserve the attention and synergy of the mathematical, computer science and engineering communities.
After the previous meetings held in La Rochelle, Montreal, Grenoble, Toronto, Paris and Clermont-Ferrand this 9th edition of the FPS symposium will be held in Quebec city, Qc, Canada.
The aim of FPS is to discuss and exchange theoretical and practical ideas that address security issues in inter-connected systems. It aims to provide scientific presentations as well as to establish links, promote scientific collaboration, joint research programs, and student exchanges between institutions involved in this important and fast moving research field.
We also invite papers from researchers and practitioners working in security, privacy, trustworthy data systems and related areas to submit their original papers. The main topics, but not limited to, include:
Computer and Network Security
Formal foundations in Information or Operational Security Security of Service Oriented Architectures Information Theoretic Security Security of Cloud Computing Security Management and Security Policies Policy-based Security Architectures Security of P2P systems Security & Privacy on Social Networks Access Control Languages Data Mining & Watermarking Cryptography & Cryptanalysis Threat Analysis and Trust Management Privacy & Sensitive Data Management Policy-based Distributed Information Systems Security in Sensor Networks and RFIDs Security of Cloud Computing, Grid Computing Security of Distributed Embedded Middleware Distributed Security Protocols & Policies Security and Privacy in Digital Currencies Malware, Botnet and Advanced Persistent Threats Code Reverse Engineering and Vulnerability Exploitation Side Channel & Physical Attacks Social Engineering Security of Big-Data
Full papers should be at most 16 pages, including the bibliography and appendices. Short and Position papers should be up to 8 pages. Authors should indicate whether their paper is a "position paper" to differentiate them from regular ones (you mention "Position paper" in the title).
Committee members are not required to read the appendices, so the paper should be intelligible without them.
All submissions must be written in English.
Authors must submit their papers by the deadline indicated below, using the EasyChair web site (using the link) and following the requirements stated there. All papers will be refereed. The submitted contribution should be formatted according to Springer's LNCS style. Submissions by PhD students as well as surveys and controversial ideas are encouraged. Case studies (successful or not) are also encouraged.
As in previous editions, proceedings will be published by Springer-Verlag in the Lecture Notes in Computer Science (LNCS) series. At least one author of each accepted paper must register to the symposium, by the date indicated by the organizers, and present the paper.
Deadline for Short/Position Papers : August 8, 2016
