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 La Rochelle, Montréal, Grenoble, Toronto and Paris, this 8th edition of the FPS symposium will be held in Clermont-Ferrand, France.
The aim of FPS 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:
- Cryptography & Cryptanalysis
- Security in Service Oriented Architectures
- Security in Web Services
- Security Administration
- Policy-based Security Architectures
- Security of Distributed Embedded Middleware
- Security in Sensor Networks and RFIDs
- Access Control Languages
- Trust Management
- Risk Assessment and Assurance
- Threat Analysis
- Distributed Security Protocols
- Security of Grid Computing
- Malware & Botnet Detection
- Protocol Verification
- Privacy & Sensitive Data Management
- Data Mining
- Security of Cloud Computing
- Side Channel Attacks
- Monitoring and Auditing
- Privacy in Social Networks
- Information Theoretic Security
- Information Flow
- Security in Ambient Intelligence (AmI) Applications
- Security and Privacy in Digital Currencies
Full Technical Papers should be at most 16 pages, including the bibliography and well-marked appendices. Short and Position papers should be up to 8 pages, including the bibliography and well-marked appendices. Committee members are not required to read the appendices, so the paper should be intelligible without them. All submissions must be written in English. All papers will be refereed. Accepted papers should be presented at the symposium. At least one author of each accepted paper must register to the symposium, by the early date indicated by the organizers, and present the paper.
As in previous editions, proceedings will be published by Springer in the Lecture Notes in Computer Science (LNCS) series. The submitted paper (in PDF format) should follow the template indicated by Springer (see http://www.springer.de/comp/lncs/authors.html). It must start with a title, a short abstract, and a list of keywords.
Authors must submit their papers before the deadline, using the EasyChair web site and following the requirements stated there.
Submissions by PhD students as well as controversial ideas are encouraged. Case studies (successful or not) are also encouraged.
