CCSTIM 2017 : International Workshop on Cloud Computing Security: Threats, Intelligence, and Mitigation
Call For Papers
International Workshop on Cloud Computing Security: Threats, Intelligence, and Mitigation (CCSTIM)
In conjunction with the 10th IEEE/ACM International Conference on Utility and Cloud Computing (UCC), Austin, TX, USA.
5-8 December 2017
AT&T Conference Center, 1900 University Avenue, Austin, TX, USA.
Aim and Scope:
The cloud computing paradigm enables the sharing of computing resources for users to enjoy readily available cloud applications and services without the consumption of local resources. The number of connected devices is continually increasing, and thus is the infrastructure on which they operate. The unique attributes of cloud systems results in the introduction of many security and privacy challenges, which are further exacerbated by new developments in infrastructure and software. This workshop is a forum to bring together researchers and practitioner to discuss the latest advancements in cloud security threats, the development of novel countermeasures, and the necessity to prevent cyber threats through security-by-design.
Topics include but not restricted to:
Identification and analysis of security threats facing cloud and fog systems
Security-by-design in connected systems
The identification of security vulnerabilities and the assessment of new threats
Vulnerabilities patch and legacy applications management
Secure data management and outsourcing
Data privacy and privacy enabling mechanisms
Virtualisation security and sandboxing
Trusted computing technologies
Secured data sharing and communication among hybrid clouds
Security and identify management mechanisms
Secure programming models and the 'secure-by-design' philosophy
Security scalability for cloud and fog systems
System availability, recovery and auditing in a security context
Novel Intrusion Detection Systems (IDS)
Incident response and breach prevention technologies
Use of Artificial Intelligence within cloud and fog security
Human factors of cloud and fog security
Data privacy and security, including cryptography
This workshop will be of interest to both the research and practitioner working in the cloud security field. This workshop is unique positioned as the support provided by organisations working in the sector of cloud security will provide a strong real-world emphasis, enabling academics to disseminate their work with impact, and industrial practitioners to leverage state-of-the-art techniques.
The involvement of organisations in supporting and promoting the workshop will bring credibility and attract other leading organisations and academics.
Authors are encouraged to submit high-quality, original work that has neither appeared in, nor is under consideration by, other conferences and journals.
The length of the papers should not exceed 6 pages (IEEE Computer Society Proceedings Manuscripts style: two columns, single-spaced), including figures and references, using font size 10, and number each page. All papers will be peer reviewed and the comments will be provided to the authors. The accepted papers will be published in the main proceedings of the IEEE/ACM UCC 2017 by the IEEE Computer Society Press and indexed by EI. At least one of the authors of their accepted paper is requested to register the paper and present the work in the IEEE/ACM UCC 2017.
