Call For Papers



Sponsored by ICST
Technically co-sponsored by CREATE-NET and Shanghai Jiao Tong University



Our society has entered an era where commercial activities, business transactions and government services have been, and more and more of them will be, conducted and offered over open networks such as the Internet. It has led to new opportunities for criminals and new challenges for law enforcement. For instance, Voice over IP raises significant challenges for call intercept and route tracing; information systems are becoming overwhelmingly large and the challenge of information source identification requires new sophisticated tools; consumer multimedia devices are increasingly becoming the tools to create potentially illegal content. At the same time, the scientific gathering and investigation of evidence at a crime scene push towards a variety of fascinating digital techniques.

Electronic telecommunications, information technology, consumer devices and sophisticated software are creating new opportunities for both criminals and forensic investigators. This conference aims to bring together the research contributions in the development of tools and techniques that assist in the investigation of potentially illegal activity associated with electronic communication and electronic devices. It will also investigative the practice and requirements for presentation of evidence in court. This might include the discovery, analysis, handling and storage of digital evidence, meeting the legal burden of proof, and the establishment of the forensic chain of evidence.



Technical papers describing original, previously unpublished research, not currently under review by another conference or journal, are solicited. Topics of interest include, but are not limited to, the following:

* Digital evidence gathering, storage and handling protocols
* Records tracing and data mining
* Fraud management in commercial transactions
* Device forensics
* Techniques for addressing identity theft
* Data carving
* Content filtering
* Geo-location techniques for cellular, ad-hoc, wireless and IP network communications
* Distributed data association across massive, disparate database systems
* Multimedia source identification
* Image tamper identification
* Image association and recognition
* Motion analysis
* Voice analysis
* VoIP call tracing and intercept
* Watermarking and applications
* Cryptographic techniques in digital forensics

General papers on IT security will be considered where there is a clear application to the underlying topic of forensic investigation.



All accepted papers will be included in the printed and electronic E-Forensics 2010 Conference Proceedings to be published by Springer in the Lecture Notes of ICST (LNICST) series and reviewed for indexing by Engineering Information (EI).



Paper submission will be handled electronically. Authors should prepare an Adobe Acrobat PDF version of their full paper. All submitted papers will be subject to a rigorous peer- review. Papers must be formatted using the Springer LNICST Authors Kit and submitted only through the ASSYST conference management system. Papers must not exceed the limit of 15 pages including text, figures and references. The font size must be at least 10 points.
