Special session on Security in Networked and Distributed Systems (SNDS)

Special Session on Security in Networked and Distributed Systems aims to bring together researchers and practitioners involved in multiple disciplines concerning security in distributed systems to exchange ideas and to learn the latest developments in this important field. We will focus on issues related to network and distributed system security, such as authentication, access control, confidentiality, integrity, availability, privacy, dependability and sustainability of distributed systems.

Previously unpublished papers offering novel research contributions to the theoretical and practical aspects of security in distributed systems are solicited for submission.

Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:
  • Adaptive security
  • Applied cryptography
  • Authentication, authorization and access control
  • Computer and network forensics
  • Data mining, machine learning, and bio-inspired approaches for security
  • Deception systems and honeypots
  • Denial-of-service attacks and countermeasures
  • Digital rights management
  • Embedded System Security
  • Internet and web security
  • Intrusion detection and prevention
  • Malware
  • Reputation based security
  • Risk analysis and risk management
  • Security and privacy in pervasive and ubiquitous computing
  • Security evaluation
  • Security for grid computing
  • Security information and event management
  • Security of emerging technologies (sensor, wireless, peer-to-peer networks)
  • Security modeling and simulation
  • Security policies
  • Security protocols
  • Software security
  • Survivability
  • Tamper resistance
  • Trust management
  • Trusted computing

Submission guidelines

Prospective authors should submit a full paper not exceeding 8 pages in the IEEE Conference proceedings format (IEEEtran, double-column, 10pt). Double-bind review: the first page of the paper should contain only the title and abstract; in the reference list, references to the authors' own work should appear as "omitted for blind review" entries. Manuscript submission


Proceedings will be published by the Conference Publishing Services (CPS) in the same volume of the main track. Authors of accepted papers are expected to register and present their papers at the Conference. Conference proceedings will be submitted for inclusion in Xplore and the CSDL, and for indexing, among others, to DBLP, Scopus ScienceDirect, and ISI Web of Knowledge.
