FPS 2013 : 6th International Symposium on Foundations and Practice of Security
Conference Series : Foundations and Practice of Security
Call For Papers
Protecting the communication and data infrastructure of an increasingly inter-connected world has become vital to the normal functioning of all aspects of our world. Security has emerged as an important scientific discipline whose many multifaceted complexities deserve the attention and synergy of the mathematical, computer science and engineering communities.
After the previous meetings held in Montréal, Grenoble, Toronto and Paris, this sixth edition of the FPS symposium will be held at La Rochelle.
The aim of this event is to discuss and exchange theoretical and practical ideas that address security issues in inter-connected systems. It aims to provide scientific presentations as well as to establish links, promote scientific collaboration, joint research programs, and student exchanges between institutions involved in this important and fast moving research field.
We also invite papers from researchers and practitioners working in security, privacy, trustworthy data systems and related areas to submit their original papers. The main topics, but not limited to, include:
Security in Service Oriented Architecture & Web Services
Security Administration & Policy-based Security Architectures
Access Control Languages
Cryptography & Cryptanalysis
Privacy & Sensitive Data Management
Security on P2P Systems and their Applications
Policy-based Distributed Information Systems and Security Policies
Security in Sensor Networks and RFID
Security of Cloud Computing, Grid Computing and their Applications
Security of Distributed Embedded Middleware
Distributed Security Protocols
Privacy in Social Networks
Formal foundations in Information Security
Side-channel analysis and Fault injection attacks
Countermeasures against physical attacks
Protected implementations, security by design
Formal Verification of security properties
Methods and Platforms for evaluation of attacks and countermeasures
Malware, botnets, binary analysis
Full papers should be at most 16 pages (using 11-point font), excluding the bibliography and well-marked appendices. Position papers, as well as extended abstract and contributed talks, should be up to 8 pages (using 11-point font). Committee members are not required to read the appendices, so the paper should be intelligible without them. All submissions must be written in English. Authors must submit their papers by the deadline indicated below, using the EasyChair web site (using the link http://www.easychair.org/conferences/?conf=fps2013) and following the requirements stated there. All papers will be refereed. The submitted contribution should be formatted according to Springer’s LNCS style. Submissions by PhD students as well as surveys and controversial ideas are encouraged. Case studies (successful or not) are also encouraged.
Proceedings will be published by Springer-Verlag in the Lecture Notes in Computer Science (LNCS) series. At least one author of each accepted paper must register to the symposium, by the date indicated by the organizers, and present the paper.
