Call For Papers

EST-2010 is a follow on from the successful Symposia on Bio-Inspired
Learning and Intelligent Systems for Security (BLISS) which took place
at the University of Edinburgh from 2007 to 2009. EST-2010 will be
hosted by the University of Kent and take place in the beautiful
cathedral city of Canterbury, UK, on the 6th and 7th September 2010.


The EST-2010 conference aims to be a forum for discussion of the
emerging technologies in the security field. It will discuss
technologies at various levels of readiness, from early concepts
to recent demonstrations and first results from field deployment.
The conference is targeted at both technologists who can present
their latest ideas and development efforts to system integrators
and program managers who are looking for solutions that will
provide their system/application with the needed advantage.

Contributions are invited in the whole spectrum of system integration
and application domain: from novel detectors and sensors which can be
integrated in handheld devices e.g. for personal ID to airborne platforms
that provide continuous ISSR, to space technologies for monitoring,
search, and intervention. Both hardware and software technologies are
invited. Examples of areas of interest include: cybersecurity - detection
and prevention of cyber-crimes and identity theft, internet security,
security of financial systems, security of public transportation systems,
emergency response systems (e.g. combining space-based systems with
geographical information systems), forensics, biometric security,
perimeter security, border security, homeland security, personal security,
wireless security, robot/unmanned systems security, hybrid security systems. Contributions to related topics such as risk mitigation, diagnostic and prognostic for security systems. Attacks and countermeasure trees, emergency and contingency plans, etc.

Topics to be covered include, but are not limited to:


- Detectors and sensors
- Signal processing
- Biometrics
- Machine Learning
- Soft computing techniques (fuzzy, neural, evolutionary, etc)
- Modelling and simulations
- Prediction techniques
- Pattern recognition
- Neural networks
- Decision-making systems
- Sensor fusion
- System engineering approaches for security
- Bio-inspired algorithms and technologies
- Hyperspectral & Multispectral Imaging
- Remote Sensing Information Extraction
- Multi-Classifier systems

Application areas:

- Sensing (remote sensing, sensor networks, etc)
- Space-based systems
- Early warning systems
- Robotic systems
- Language translation systems
- Financial systems
- Human-centric systems
- Decision support systems
- Training systems (modeling, simulation, virtual environments)
- Complex systems reliability
- Geographic Information Systems
- Transportation systems
- Detection/prevention of Identity theft
- Crime detection/prevention
- ID security
- Wireless communications security
- Cyberspace security
- Biometric security systems

Prospective authors are invited to submit the electronic version of their
full paper (i.e. PS, PDF, MSWord) on the conference web site. Papers are
limited to 6 pages and should be submitted in single-spaced, 10 point type
on a 8.5" X 11" or equivalent paper with 1" margins on all sides. Each
submission should contain the following items: (1) title of paper, (2)
author name(s), (3) first author physical address, (4) first author e-mail
address, (5) first author phone number, (6) a maximum 200 words abstract
(7) the text of the paper, and (8) references. Accepted papers will be
published in the conference proceedings published by IEEE Computer Society's
Conference Publishing Services (CPS) and made available through the IEEE Xplore.

Please find attached CFP in pdf format.
