Call For Papers

13th Joint IFIP TC6 and TC11 Conference on
Communications and Multimedia Security -- CMS'2012
September 3-5, 2012, Canterbury, UK

CMS'2012 is the 13th Conference in the “Communications and Multimedia Security" series. The series is a joint effort of IFIP Technical Committees TC6 (Communication Systems) and TC11 (Security and Protection in Information Processing Systems).
The conference provides a forum for engineers and scientists in information security. Both state-of-the-art issues and practical experiences as well as new trends in these areas will be once more the focus of interest just like at preceding conferences.
The conference will address in particular security and privacy issues in mobile contexts, web services (including social networking) and ubiquitous environments.
We solicit papers describing original ideas and research results on topics that include, but are not limited to:
- applied cryptography
- biometrics
- secure documents and archives
- multimedia systems security
- digital watermarking
- distributed DRM policies
- attack resistant rendering engines
- adaptive anomaly detection
- censorship resistance
- risk management
- mobility and security/privacy
- mobile identities
- privacy enhanced identity management
- security/privacy policies and preferences
- social networks security/privacy
- security/privacy in geo-localized applications
- security/privacy in VoIP`
- security policies (including usage control)
- web services security
- economics of network and information security (NIS)
- SOA security
- ubiquitous and ambient computing security
- cloud computing security/privacy
- wireless and ad hoc network security
- RFID tags and (multimedia) sensor nodes security
- security technology effectiveness
- incentivizing security

Instructions for authors:

The conference will comprise two refereed paper tracks: the Research track and the Industry/Government/Work-in-progress track, as well as a poster session, all of them being presented in a single stream.

Paper submissions for the Research track must be written in English, formatted in the conference style (limited to 14 pages, see the conference web site for a style template and submission instructions). The paper must be anonymous, with no author names, affiliations, acknowledgements, or obvious references. Authors are requested to submit original papers only. Papers that have previously been published and papers that are currently being considered for publication by another journal or conference are not eligible.
Each paper must include a short abstract and a list of keywords indicating subject classification. Its introduction should summarize the contributions of the paper at a level appropriate for a non-specialist reader.

Paper submissions for the Industry/Government/Work-in-progress track are limited to 8 pages (see also conference website for the instructions). These papers highlight applications or present work-in-progress. They should also address challenges, lessons learned or research issues arising out of –both successful and unsuccessful- deployment of such applications. Note, however, that sufficient technical content is required.

For Poster submissions, a title and an abstract (max 2 pages) is required. Accepted posters will be published in the proceedings as extended abstracts.

All submitted papers will be refereed by members of the Programme Committee for correctness, originality, relevance to the conference and quality of presentation. Acceptance of a paper or poster means an obligation for at least one of the authors to attend the conference and present the paper or poster.

Google has again agreed to sponsor a number of travel grants for students, and prizes for best papers.

The proceedings will be published by Springer.

To submit a paper or a poster, visit the conference web site.
