Call For Papers

1st International Workshop on Cyber Forensics and Threat Investigations Challenges in Emerging Infrastructures (CFTIC 2020)

CFTIC 2020 will be held in conjunction with the 18th International Conference on Service Oriented Computing (ICSOC 2020) which is co-organized on December 14-17 2020, Dubai, UAE.

Scope of the workshop:

The main motivation for this Workshop is to bring together researchers and practitioners working on cyber forensics and threat investigations for emerging infrastructures to disseminate current research issues and advances. Original technical papers describing new, state-of-the-art research, will be considered. The Workshop welcomes submissions that evaluate existing research results by reproducing experiments. The aim of this workshop is to provide insight for the discussion of the major research challenges and achievements on various topics of interest.

Papers on practical as well as on theoretical topics and problems in various topics related to cyber forensics and threat investigations are invited, with special emphasis on novel techniques and tools to collect data from networked devices and services in emerging infrastructures (such as the ones can be found in wireless and mobile computing, cloud/edge/fog computing, service-oriented architecture, cyber-physical systems, and Internet of things). Topics include (but are not limited to):

· Digital evidence search and seizure in emerging infrastructures
· Forensics soundness in emerging infrastructures
· Cybercrime investigation in emerging infrastructures
· Incident handling in emerging infrastructures
· eDiscovery in emerging infrastructures
· Forensics readiness in emerging infrastructures
· Challenges for digital investigations in emerging infrastructures
· Legal aspect of digital investigations in emerging infrastructures
· Tools and practices for digital investigations in emerging infrastructures
· Case studies related to digital investigations in emerging infrastructures
· digital investigations -as-a-Service
· Criminal profiling and reconstruction in the cloud
· Big data implications for digital investigations in emerging infrastructures
· Current and future trends for digital investigations in emerging infrastructures

We also encourage contributions describing innovative work in the realm of cybersecurity, cyber defense, and digital crimes.
