Conference topics
In the past decade, computer networks have fundamentally influenced the ways in which information is exchanged and handled. Pervasive electronic devices make our everyday life easier, e.g., by helping us to connect with other people while mobile, to use services available online, or to pay and use tolls and tickets. Many of the components employed routinely manage and distribute large amounts of data for different purposes. As these processes involve sensitive information, protecting information and the network with suitable security measures is more important than ever.

The objective of this one-day conference (noon to noon) is to bring together researchers in the field of network security to discuss the open problems and future research directions. To this end, we solicit papers describing interesting unsolved problems and issues in (a certain area of) network and infrastructure security. Example areas include

* Advanced Network Security for SME
* Cloud computing security
* Cryptographic techniques and protocols
* Distributed communication security tools
* Data Security in Transit
* Education in Network security
* Intranet / Extranet security
* Intrusion prevention and detection
* Mobile communication security
* Modeling and evaluation network security
* Network Risk analysis and management
* Network Security Architecture
* Network Security Management
* Practical Network security advanced solutions
* Personal identity-based security transactions
* Secure payments
* Secure transactions
* Security audit
* Security in E-Commerce
* Security in Semantic web
* Security protocols
* Trust domain infrastructures
* Web 2.0/3.0 security
* World wide web security

Instruction for abstract and paper submission
Papers must not substantially overlap with papers that have been published or that are simultaneously submitted to a journal or a conference. Papers and abstracts must be written in English. Initially, an abstract is required to be submitted. The abstract has to be about 2 pages. The paper acceptance will be made based on the abstract. After the Conference, the full paper has to be submitted in a camera ready format for publishing. The conference proceedings will be published by Springer. The papers should be at most 12 pages long in total, including bibliography and well-marked appendices. The paper should be intelligible without its appendices.

The abstracts and the papers must follow Springer’s guidelines for the IFIP Series, available at (see Manuscript Preparation in LaTeX for contributed books, under the link “Author Templates”). At least one author of each accepted paper must register with the conference and present the paper.

All abstracts and papers must have authors email addresses and be submitted in electronic form through the web. Authors’ names must be ordered Name followed by Surname. The website for the electronic submission and author instructions can be accessed via by the deadline indicated below. Abstracts submitted after this deadline will be discarded without review.
