AI and Cyber Security Special Track at The 26th International FLAIRS
Conference
In cooperation with the American Association for Artificial Intelligence
St. Pete Beach, Florida
May 22 - 24, 2013

Important Dates
========================
Paper submission deadline: November 19, 2012
Acceptance/Revision notification: 21 January 2013

Track Overview
========================

Cyber Security is an interdisciplinary area that focuses on
maintaining and reducing risks to the confidentiality, integrity, and
availability of information and resources in computer and network
systems. The complexity of modern systems and the diversity of threat
vectors both social and technical, require intelligent, adaptive,
multimodal solutions for which artificial intelligence (AI) approaches
are well suited.

This track will focus on identifying state of the art artificial
intelligence based solutions to problems related to cyber security.
This track will be of interest to researchers and leading edge
practitioners in academia, industry, and government agencies concerned
with computer and network security.

Topics
========================

Submissions are encouraged, but not limited, to the following topics:

- Machine Learning for Intrusion Detection Systems
- NLP for text analysis in Cyber Security
- Video and CCTV semantic analysis for terrorist or criminal action
detection
- AI & Biometrics
- AI & SCADA systems security
- AI & Network Systems security
- AI & Embedded Systems security
- AI in Forensic Analysis
- AI & Cloud Computing security

Note: We invite original papers (i.e. work not previously submitted,
in submission, or to be submitted to another conference during the
reviewing process).

Submission Guidelines
=================================

Interested authors should format their papers according to AAAI
formatting guidelines. The papers should be original work (i.e., not
submitted, in submission, or submitted to another conference while in
review). Papers should not exceed 6 pages (4 pages for a poster) and
are due by November 19, 2012. For FLAIRS-26, the 2013 conference, the
reviewing is a double blind process. Fake author names and
affiliations must be used on submitted papers to provide double-blind
reviewing. Papers must be submitted as PDF through the EasyChair
conference system, which can be accessed through the main conference
web site (http://www.flairs-26.info/). Note: do not use a fake name
for your EasyChair login - your EasyChair account information is
hidden from reviewers. Authors should indicate the AI and Cyber
Security special track for submissions. The proceedings of FLAIRS will
be published by the AAAI. Authors of accepted papers will be required
to sign a form transferring copyright of their contribution to AAAI.
FLAIRS requires that there be at least one full author registration
per paper.
