Call For Papers


Third International Workshop on Digital Forensics (WSDF 2010)

To be held in conjunction with the Fifth International Conference on Availability, Reliability and Security (ARES 2010 –

February 15th – 18th, 2010
Andrzej Frycz Modrzewski Cracow College
Krakow, Poland

Digital forensics is a rapidly evolving field primarily focused on the extraction, preservation and analysis of digital evidence obtained from electronic devices in a manner that is legally acceptable. Research into new methodologies tools and techniques within this domain is necessitated by an ever-increasing dependency on tightly interconnected, complex and pervasive computer systems and networks. The ubiquitous nature of our digital lifestyle presents many avenues for the potential misuse of electronic devices in crimes that directly involve, or are facilitated by, these technologies. The aim of digital forensics is to produce outputs that can help investigators ascertain the overall state of a system. This includes any events that have occurred within the system and entities that have interacted with that system.

Due care has to be taken in the identification, collection, archiving, maintenance, handling and analysis of digital evidence in order to prevent damage to data integrity.
The focus of this workshop is not only restricted to digital forensics in the investigation of crime. It also addresses security applications such as, for example, automated log analysis and forensic aspects of fraud prevention. Today’s environment of media content with increasing storage capacity, and larger and more files than ever before presents another challenge to digital forensic investigators. WSDF aims to bring together experts from academia, industry, government and law enforcement who are interested in advancing the state of the art in digital forensics by exchanging their knowledge, results, ideas and experiences.

Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:
- Digital Evidence
- Digital Forensics
- Network Forensics
- Anti Forensics
- Physical Memory Acquisition and Analysis
- Digital Forensic Information Visualisation
- Fraud investigations Involving Technology
- Portable Devices
- Cyber Terrorism
- Log Analysis
- Incident Response
- Risk and Incident Management
- Investigative Case Studies
- Data Hiding Techniques
- Data Recovery
- Digital Evidence Extraction Techniques
- Digital Evidence Search Techniques
- Standards, Guidelines and Certification
- Steganography
- Digital Forensics Tools

Important dates
Submission Deadline October, 15th 2009
Author Notification November, 01st 2009
Author Registration November, 14th, 2009
Proceedings Version November, 14th 2009
Conference/Workshop February, 15th - 18th 2010

Submission Guidelines
The submission guidelines valid for the WSDF workshop are the same as for the ARES conference. They can be found at:

Submission of a paper implies that should the paper be accepted, at least one of the authors will register and present the paper in the conference.

Accepted papers will be given guidelines in preparing and submitting the final manuscript(s) together with the notification of acceptance.

All accepted papers will be published as ISBN proceedings published by the IEEE Computer Society - Conference Publishing Services (CPS).
