2015 ACM Cloud Computing Security Workshop (CCSW)

Date and location: October 16, 2015, Denver, Colorado, USA, In
conjunction with the 22nd ACM CCS Conference

Website: http://ccsw.ics.uci.edu/15/

Important dates:

 - Submissions: June 10, 2015

 - Author notification: July 19, 2015

 - Camera-ready papers due: July 29, 2015


The CCSW workshop brings together researchers and practitioners in all security
and privacy aspects of cloud-centric and outsourced computing, including:

- practical cryptographic protocols for cloud security
- outsourced privacy-preserving computation
- secure cloud resource virtualization mechanisms
- secure data management outsourcing (e.g., database as a service)
- practical privacy and integrity mechanisms for outsourcing
- privacy-enhancing technologies for the cloud
- foundations of cloud-centric threat models
- secure computation outsourcing
- remote attestation mechanisms in clouds
- sandboxing and VM-based enforcements
- trust and policy management in clouds
- secure identity management mechanisms
- new cloud-aware web service security paradigms and mechanisms
- cloud-centric regulatory compliance issues and mechanisms
- business and security risk models and clouds
- cost and usability models and their interaction with security in clouds
- scalability of security in global-size clouds
- trusted computing technology and clouds
- binary analysis of software for remote attestation and cloud protection
- network security (DOS, IDS etc.) mechanisms for cloud contexts
- security for emerging cloud programming models
- energy/cost/efficiency of security in clouds
- security for software defined networking

We would like to especially encourage novel paradigms and controversial ideas
that are not on the above list. The workshop is to act as a fertile ground for
creative debate and interaction in security-sensitive areas of computing
impacted by clouds.
