CALL FOR POSITION STATEMENTS
4th International Conference on Security of Information and Networks (SIN 2011)
14-19 November 2011, Sydney, Australia
*** Submissions of position papers (up to 4 pages) will be accepted until August 10, 2011
*** Special issues of Concurrency and Computation: Practice and Experience (by Wiley) and Networking Science (by Springer-Verlag)
The 4th International Conference on Security of Information and Networks (SIN 2011) provides an international forum for presentation of research and applications of security in information and networks. SIN 2011 will feature contributed as well as invited papers, special sessions, workshops, and tutorials on theory and practice. Its drive is to convene a high quality, well-attended, and up-to-date conference on scientific and technical issues of security in information, networks, and systems.
Position papers addressing all aspects of security in information and networks are being sought. Researchers and industrial practitioners working on the following and related subjects are especially encouraged: next generation network architectures, protocols, theory, systems and applications; the development and the realization of cryptographic solutions, security schemes, new algorithms; critical analysis of, and/or experimenting with, existing approaches; secure information systems, especially distributed control and processing applications, and security in networks; interoperability, service levels and quality issues in such systems; information assurance, security, and public policy; detection and prevention of cyber crimes such as fraud and phishing; industrial experiences and challenges of the above.
The authors of selected papers will be invited to submit an extended version of their papers for possible publication in the following special issues:
* Concurrency and Computation: Practice and Experience (by Wiley). The theme of the special issue is Trust and Security in Wireless Sensor Networks.
* Networking Science (by Springer-Verlag). The theme of the special issue is Next Generation Network Architectures, Protocols, Theory, Systems and Applications.
AREAS OF INTEREST
Broad areas of interest in security theory, technology and applications will include, but are not limited to, the following:
* Access control and intrusion detection
* Autonomous and adaptive security
* Computational intelligence techniques in security
* Computer network defense
* Cryptographic techniques and key management
* Industrial applications of security
* Information assurance
* Next generation network architectures

SUBMISSION OF PROPOSALS
Papers should include the title, author's name(s), affiliation, mailing address, telephone, fax and email of the principal author. All papers will be reviewed by at least three members of the program committee judging their originality, significance, correctness, presentation and relevance. Acceptance and final category depend on reviewer feedback.
All acccepted papers will be published by ACM Press in a conference proceedings and placed into ACM Digital Library. Extended versions of selected papers will be invited for possible publication in a special issue of an international journal (TBA).
The submitted papers should be written according to double-column ACM conference format (http://www.acm.org/sigs/publications/proceedings-templates).
The papers should not exceed the maximum length stipulated below under submission categories (extra page charges apply for overlength papers).
All papers must be submitted electronically via the SIN 2011 Submission Site (https://cmt.research.microsoft.com/SIN2011/) by the due date.
At least one of the authors of each accepted paper must register as a participant of the conference for the paper to be included in the proceedings.
Position papers / fast abstracts - Authors are encouraged to propose position papers / fast abstracts on practical studies and experiments, critiques of existing work, emerging issues, and novel ideas under development. Maximum length for the proceedings is 4 pages for fast abstracts and position statements. Please add "(Position paper)" / "(Fast abstract)" to the title.
Tool demos - Enterprises and research centers developing, implementing, or using security tools and frameworks are encouraged to propose application / tool demos. Maximum length for the proceedings is 4 pages for tool demos. Please add "(Tool demo)" to the title.
