Call For Papers

OVERVIEW

Submissions are solicited for the 4th Annual Hot Topics in the Science of Security (HoTSoS) Symposium and Bootcamp, which will be held April 4-5, 2017 at The Hotel at Arundel Preserve in Hanover, Maryland. The symposium will include a mix of invited talks, refereed papers, panels, tutorials, and posters. As in prior years, papers will appear in the conference proceedings to be published by ACM Press.

SCOPE, GOALS, AND VISION

HoTSoS draws together researchers, practitioners, and thought leaders from government, industry, and academia. The conference provides a forum for dialogue centered upon the development and advancement of scientific foundations in cybersecurity. The technical emphasis of HoTSoS is on scientific methods, data gathering and analysis, experimental approaches, mathematical models, and the interactions among those approaches to build a foundational science of security. The HoTSoS vision is one of engaging and growing a community—including researchers and skilled practitioners from diverse disciplines—that is focused around the advancement of scientific methods.

TOPICS OF INTEREST

We invite submissions on any topic related to science of security that aligns with the conference scope and goals listed above. The 2017 HoTSoS will highlight the following themes:

- Scalability and composability in the construction of secure systems,
- Policy-governed collaboration for handling data across different domains of authority while ensuring security and privacy,
- Security metrics to guide choice-making in security engineering and response,
- Resilient architectures that can deliver service despite compromised components,
- Analysis of human behavior, including modeling users, operators, and adversaries, to support improved design and analysis,
- Foundational research related to privacy that allows for the ability to use (i.e., collect, store, and share) data in accordance with requirements, and
- Foundations for the security of cyber-physical systems, including applications to the Internet of Things.

IMPORTANT DATES

Submissions: December 14, 2016
Decisions: February 15, 2017
Final Versions: March 1, 2017
Conference: April 4-5, 2017
