Call For Papers


8th Workshop on Security and High Performance Computing Systems
(SHPCS 2013)

As part of
The International Conference on High Performance Computing & Simulation
(HPCS 2013)

July 1 - July 5, 2013
Helsinki, Finland


Submissions could be for full papers, short papers, poster papers, or posters

Providing high performance computing and security is a challenging task.
Internet, operating systems and distributed environments currently suffer
from poor security support and cannot resist common attacks.
Adding security measures typically degrade performance. This workshop
addresses relationships between security and high performance computing
systems in three directions.
First, it considers how to add security properties (authentication,
confidentiality, integrity, non-repudiation, access control) to high
performance computing systems and how they can be formally verified both
at design-time (formal verification) and at run-time (run-time verification).
In this case, safety properties can also be addressed, such as availability
and fault tolerance for high performance computing systems.
Second, it covers how to use high performance computing systems to solve
security problems. For instance, a grid computation can break an encryption
code, a cluster can support high performance intrusion detection or a
distributed formal verification system. More generally, this topic addresses
every efficient use of a high performance computing systems to improve security.
Third, it investigates the tradeoffs between maintaining high performance and
achieving security in computing systems and solutions to balance the two
In all these directions, various formal analyses, as well as performance
analyses or monitoring techniques can be conducted to show the efficiency
of a security infrastructure.

The workshop seeks submissions from academia and industry presenting novel
research on all theoretical and practical aspects of computer and network
security, as well as case studies and implementation experiences. Papers
should have practical relevance to the construction, evaluation, application,
or operation of secure systems.

The Workshop topics of interest include (but are not limited to) the following:
* Access Control
* Accounting and Audit
* Anonymity
* Applied Cryptography
* Authentication
* Cloud Security
* Commercial and Industry Security
* Cryptographic Protocols
* Data and Application Security
* Data/System Integrity
* Database Security
* Digital Rights Management
* Formal Verification of Secure Systems
* Identity Management
* Inference/Controlled Disclosure
* Information Warfare
* Intellectual Property Protection
* Intrusion and Attack Detection
* Intrusion and Attack Response
* Key Management
* Privacy-Enhancing Technology
* Secure Networking
* Secure System Design
* Security Monitoring & Management
* Security for Mobile Code
* Security for Specific Domains (e.g., E-Government, E-Business, P2P)
* Security in IT Outsourcing
* Security in Mobile and Wireless Networks
* Security in Untrusted & Adversarial Environments and Systems
* Security in Operating Systems
* Security Location Services
* Security of Grid and Cluster Architectures
* Security Visualization
* Smartcards
* Trust Management Policies
* Trust Models
* Web Security
* Web Services Security

You are invited to submit original and unpublished research works on above
and other topics related to Security in HPC. Submitted papers must not have
been published or simultaneously submitted elsewhere. Submission should
include a cover page with authors' names, affiliation addresses, fax numbers,
phone numbers, and email addresses. Please, indicate clearly the corresponding
author and include up to 6 keywords from the above list of topics and an abstract
of no more than 400 words. The full manuscript should be at most 7 pages using
the two-column IEEE format. Additional pages will be charged additional fee.
Short papers (up to 4 pages), poster papers and posters will also be accepted for
submission. Please include page numbers on all preliminary submissions to make
it easier for reviewers to provide helpful comments. Submit a PDF copy of your
full manuscript via using the Easychair (the submission link will be provided soon).

Only PDF files will be accepted, submitted via the link above. Each paper will
receive a minimum of three reviews. Papers will be selected based on their
originality, relevance, technical clarity and presentation. Submission implies
the willingness of at least one of the authors to register and present the
paper, if accepted. Authors of accepted papers must guarantee that their papers
will be registered and presented at the workshop.

Accepted papers will be published in the conference proceedings which will be made
available at the time of the meeting. Instructions for final manuscript format
and requirements will be posted on the HPCS 2013 Conference web site.
The proceedings is projected to be included in the IEEE Digital Library and
indexed accordingly.

Authors of selected papers will be invited to submit an extended version of their
work for a special issue in an ISI Journal (the last special issue has been published
in the Future Generation Computer Systems (FGCS) Journal - Elsevier).
