You are invited to participate in the IWSPA-AP Shared Task at IWSPA 2018. The shared task will be on Detection and Analysis of Email nature.

The International Workshop on Security and Privacy Analytics (IWSPA) - Anti Phishing Shared Task will feature an exercise in the field of applied machine learning and text analysis in cyber security. The participants will be asked to build a classifier that will be able to detect phishing emails from spam and legitimate ones in an "unbalanced" dataset. In order to make the task relatable to a real world situation, the training and testing dataset will have realistic ratios of malicious and legitimate emails (not 50:50). A sample training data will be provided and the results will be evaluated on a testing dataset that will be posted a week before the results are due. We ask of the participants to send us their trained model and the results they achieved on the testing dataset. The participants are encouraged to use any data in their possession, in addition to the one provided, to train their model. The participants are also free to use any kind of feature engineering, and any type of classifiers. However keep in mind that the dataset is "Unbalanced".
The proceedings may be published online in the CEUR publication service.
