SHPCS 2018: 13th International Workshop on Security and High Performance Computing Systems
Orléans, France, July 16-20, 2018


Providing high performance computing and security is a challenging task. Internet, operating systems and distributed environments currently suffer from poor security support and cannot resist common attacks. Adding security measures typically degrade performance. This workshop addresses relationships between security, high performance and distributed computing systems in four directions. First, it considers how to add security properties (authentication, confidentiality, integrity, non-repudiation, access control) to high performance computing systems and how they can be formally verified both at design-time (formal verification) and at run-time (run-time verification). In this case, safety properties can also be addressed, such as availability and fault tolerance for high performance computing systems. Second, it addresses vulnerabilities and security threats (and remediation) targeting HPC, grid, cloud and mobile environments. Third, it covers how to use HPC systems to solve security problems. For instance, a grid computation can break an encryption code, a cluster can support high performance intrusion detection or a distributed formal verification system. More generally, this topic addresses every efficient use of a high performance computing systems to improve security. Fourth, it investigates the tradeoffs between maintaining high performance and achieving security in computing systems and solutions to balance the two objectives. In all these directions, various formal analyses, as well as performance analyses or monitoring techniques can be conducted to show the efficiency of a security infrastructure.

The workshop seeks submissions from academia and industry presenting novel research on all theoretical and practical aspects of security related to HPC, distributed, network and mobile environments, as well as case studies and implementation experiences. Papers should have practical relevance to the construction, evaluation, application, or operation of secure systems.


The topics of interest for submission include, but are not limited to, the following aspects of security and high performance computing systems:

Access Control
Accounting and Audit
Blockchain and Bitcoin security
Blockchain and trust management
Blockchain schemes for HPC decentralization
Commercial and Industry Security
Cryptographic Protocols and Applied Cryptography
Data, Application, and Database Security and Integrity
Digital Rights Management and Intellectual Property Protection
Formal Verification of Secure Systems
Identity and Key Management
Inference/Controlled Disclosure
Information Warfare
Intrusion and Attack Detection and Response
Privacy-Enhancing Technology
Secure Networking
Secure System Design
Security for Mobile Code, Mobile and Wireless Networks
Security for Specific Domains (e.g., E-Government, E-Business, P2P) and IT Outsourcing
Security in Operating Systems and in Untrusted & Adversarial Environments and Systems

*** Author's information ***

Authors are invited to submit full research papers (up to 8 pages, double-column, IEEE manuscript templates) describing original research results, case studies and tools; and short new ideas/work-in-progress papers (up to 4 pages, double-column, IEEE manuscript templates) describing new approaches, techniques and/or tools that are not fully validated yet. Accepted papers will be published in the Conference proceedings. Instructions for final manuscript format and requirements are posted on the HPCS 2018 Conference web site. It is our intent to have the proceedings formally published in hard and soft copies as in the past years, and be available at the time of the conference. The proceedings will be included in the IEEE or ACM Digital Library and indexed in all major indexing services accordingly.

Papers must be submitted in PDF format at the EasyChair submission site:
