WIIoTS 2018 Workshop on Industrial Internet of Things Security, Bilbao, Spain, June 4-7, 2018. [posted here 12/25/17]
The Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) is an emerging paradigm in today's (control) industry, comprising Internet-enabled cyber-physical devices with the ability to couple to the new interconnection technologies such as cloud/fog computing. Under this perspective, the new industrial cyber-physical "things" can be accessible and available from remote locations, the information of which can be processed and stored in distributed locations, favouring the cooperation, the performance in field, and the achievement of operational tasks working at optimal times. However, the incorporation of the IIoT in the new scenarios of the fourth industrial revolution, also known as Industry 4.0, entails having to consider the new security and privacy issues that can threaten the wellbeing of the new IIoT ecosystem and its coexistence with the existing industrial technologies, with a high risk of impact on the end-users. Therefore, this workshop will create a collaboration platform for experts from academia, governments and industry to address the new IIoT security and privacy challenges. Papers related to security and privacy of embedded systems working in industrial and control environments, such as SCADA, smart grid, smart cities, manufacturing systems, water systems, and in critical infrastructures in general, are all welcome at WIIoTS 2018.

ESSoS 2018 International Symposium on Engineering Secure Software and Systems, Campus Paris-Saclay, France, June 26-27, 2018. (Submission Due 9 March 2018) [posted here 12/11/17]
Software-based systems permeate the very fabric of our society from enterprise IT systems and mobile devices to smart home and city environments. Consequently, computer security is becoming an increasingly inter-disciplinary subject requiring attention to the various aspects of securing our software-based infrastructure. One must pay careful attention to ensure compatibility with existing software and the wider socio-technical context (e.g., users and organisations) which it inhabits. This, in turn, requires an approach that integrates insights from computer security research with rigorous software engineering methods to ensure the security and resilience of our digital infrastructure. ESSoS therefore welcomes contributions that are at the border of system security and software engineering. The goal of this symposium is to bring together researchers and practitioners to advance the state of the art and practice in secure software engineering. Being one of the few conference-level events dedicated to this topic, it explicitly aims to bridge the software engineering and software security communities. The symposium features two days of technical program including two keynote presentations. In addition to academic papers, the symposium encourages submission of high-quality, informative industrial experience papers about successes and failures in secure software engineering and the lessons learned. Furthermore, the symposium also accepts short idea papers that crisply describe a promising direction, approach, or insight.

GRAMSEC 2018 5th International Workshop on Graphical Models for Security, Co-located with CSF 2018, Oxford, UK, July 8, 2018. (Submission Due 15 April 2018) [posted here 3/5/18]
The use of graphical security models to represent and analyse the security of systems has gained an increasing research attention over the last two decades. Formal methods and computer security researchers, as well as security professionals from the industry and government, have proposed various graphical security models, metrics, and measurements. Graphical models are used to capture different security facets and address a range of challenges including security assessment, automated defence, secure services composition, security policy validation, and verification. For example, attack graphs, attack trees, attack-defence trees, and attack countermeasure trees represent possible ways of attacking and defending a system while misuse cases and mal-activity diagrams capture threats and abusive behaviour of users.

WCCI-Blockchain 2018 Blockchain Research and Applications Session, Held in conjunction with the 2018 World Congress on Computational Intelligence (WCCI 2018), Rio de Janeiro, Brasil, July 8-13, 2018. [posted here 1/29/18]
The blockchain emerged as a novel distributed consensus scheme that allows transactions, and any other data, to be securely stored and verified in a decentralized way. Considered by some as revolutionary as the Internet, the blockchain has the potential to underpin concepts, frameworks, regulations, and economics. The nascent field of blockchain research is highly interdisciplinary, and has the potential for fascinating research projects and results, sitting at the intersection of computer science, cryptography, economics, engineering, finance, law, mathematics, and politics. Many technical challenges arise with the rapid development of distributed ledger technologies. There is a great interest in applying blockchain to different application scenarios and in solving complex problems. This technology also offers superb opportunities to support the transformation of business models. This special session aims to provide a forum for researchers in this area to carefully analyze current systems or propose new ones, in order to create a scientific background for a solid development of new blockchain technology systems.

WCTI 2018 International Workshop on Cyber Threat Intelligence, Held in conjunction with the 13th International Conference on Availability, Reliability and Security (ARES 2018), Hamburg, Germany, August 27-30, 2018. [posted here 2/19/18]
In order to effectively defend a system against malicious activities, information about the nature of the adversaries, their available skills and resources is essential. Without this information, we run the risk that the portfolio of countermeasures does not turn out to be adequate to thwart off cyber threats, or that the defender deploys unnecessary resources. Cyber Threat Intelligence is an emerging new discipline, which aims to develop methods and techniques to assemble information about compromises, extract information about the infrastructure and tools used, investigate adversarial techniques and practices and their evolution, structure and share this information and thus help detect and prevent future incidents. WCTI aims to bring together experts from academia, industry, government and law enforcement who are interested to advance the state of the art in cyber threat intelligence. The aim of the workshop is to present mature and early stage ideas, promote discussion and exchange, and build a community of researchers and practitioners in cyber threat intelligence.

NSPW 2018 New Security Paradigms Workshop, Cumberland Lodge, Windsor, UK, August 28-31, 2018. [posted here 3/12/18]
The New Security Paradigms Workshop (NSPW) seeks embryonic, disruptive, and unconventional ideas on information and cyber security that benefit from early feedback. Submissions typically address current limitations of information security, directly challenge long-held beliefs or the very foundations of security, or discuss problems from an entirely novel angle, leading to new solutions. We welcome papers both from computer science and other disciplines that study adversarial relationships, as well as from practice. The workshop is invitation-only; all accepted papers receive a 1 hour plenary time slot for presentation and discussion. In order to maximize diversity of perspectives, we particularly encourage submissions from new NSPW authors, from Ph.D. students, and from non-obvious disciplines and institutions. In 2018, NSPW invites theme submissions around "Security in 2038" next to regular submissions. We know from past experience that every security advance brings with it new security failures. Automated software updates open the door to malicious software updates; DNSSEC is subject to cryptography-based denial-of-service attacks; antivirus software can be compromised by data files that are otherwise harmless. We encourage authors to imagine the security problems of the next 20 years, how they are currently being created through fallible solutions and paradigms, and what alternative paradigms would be available to mitigate those anomalies (as meant by Kuhn). Theme submissions can take any form, but we suggest writing them as if they were a submission for NSPW 2038 (including citations to future work). We particularly invite submissions (co-)authored by historians and futurologists.

SecDev 2018 IEEE Security Development Conference, Cambridge, MA, USA, September 30-October 2, 2018. [posted here 1/1/18]
SecDev is a venue for presenting ideas, research, and experience about how to develop secure systems. SecDev is distinguished by its focus on the theory, techniques, and tools for how to "build security in" to computing systems, and not simply discover the absence of security. Its goal is to encourage and disseminate ideas for secure system development among academia, industry, and government. Developers have valuable experiences and ideas that can inform academic research, and researchers have concepts, studies, and even code and tools that could benefit developers. Great SecDev contributions could come from attendees of industrial conferences like AppSec, RSA, Black Hat, and Shmoocon; from attendees of academic conferences like IEEE S&P, IEEE CSF, USENIX Security, PLDI, FSE, ISSTA, SOUPS, and others; and from newcomers. SecDev solicits four types of contributions. First, SecDev is a forum for novel research papers that present innovations, experience-based insights, or a vision about how to "build security in" to existing and new computing systems. Position papers with exceptional visions will also be considered. Second, SecDev seeks Best Practices (BP) papers that provide an in-depth clarification and integration of solutions on a major security area. The paper needs to provide new perspectives and insights, although it could draw upon prior work. Third, SecDev seeks hands-on and interactive tutorials on processes, frameworks, languages, and tools for building security in. The goal is to share knowledge on the art and science of secure systems development. Fourth, SecDev seeks abstracts from practitioners to share their practical experiences and challenges in security development.
