*The 2nd IEEE International Conference on Cyber Security and Cloud Computing (CSCloud 2015)* Nov. 3-5, 2015, New York, USA http://csis.pace.edu/CSCloud General Chair Meikang Qiu, Pace University, USA Program Chair Shui Yu, Deakin University, Australia Yongxin Zhu, Shanghai Jiaotong University, China Jack Dongarra, University of Tennessee, USA Program Committee Malek Ben Salem, Accenture Technology Lab, USA Jun Ho Huh, Honeywell Technology Solutions Lab, USA Zongming Fei, University of Kentucky, USA Yingwei Luo, Peking University, China Lei Ju, Shandong University, China Jiawei Huang, Nvidia, USA Thomas Austin, San Jose State University, USA Shan Lin, Temple University, USA Ruixuan Li, Huazhong University of Science and Technology, China Xingang Liu, University of Electronic Science and Technology, China Bin Wang, Wright State University, USA Xing Fu, VMware, USA Younghee Park, San Jose State University, USA Fei Hu, University of Alabama, USA Hongjun Dai, Shandong University, China Huansheng Ning, Beihang University, China Zonghua Gu, Zhejiang University, China Yongxin Zhu, Shanghai Jiao Tong University, China Hui Lu, Beihang University, China Scope and Topics of Interest Cyberspace has changed our daily lives. To avoid system fragility and defend against vulnerabilities exploration from cyber attacker, various cyber secur ity techniques and tools have been developed. This is the major focus of CSC loud 2015. The emerging paradigm of cloud computing provides a new way to address the c onstraints of limited energy, capabilities, and resources. With big data pro cessing, computation, distribution, and storage capability, cloud computing has been embraced by researchers and practitioners as a new approach that h as the potential for a profound impact in our daily life and world economy. Cloud computing is the second focus of CSCloud 2015. This includes cloud mod els, heterogeneous architecture, resource allocation, load balance, multimed ia, and QoS, etc. The objective of CSCloud 2015 is to provide a prime international forum for scientists, researchers, and industrial practitioners to discuss and exchang e their new ideas, novel results, work in progress and experience on all asp ects of cyber security and cloud computing. Topics of particular interest in clude, but are not limited to: . Cyber Security in New Paradigms . Cyber hacking, next generation fire wall . Cyber monitoring, incident response . Digital forensics . Big data security, Database security . Social engineering, insider threats, advance spear phishing . Cyber threat intelligence . Security and fault tolerance for embedded or ubiquitous systems . Cloud security . Tele-health security . Sensor network security . Embedded networks and sensor network optimizations . Cloud computing and networking models . Heterogeneous architecture for cloud computing . Dynamic resource sharing algorithm for cloud computing . Load balance for cloud computing . Cloud-based audio/video streaming techniques . MapReduce . Visualization . Cloud-based real-time multimedia techniques . Mobile cloud computing . Green cloud computing . Quality of Service (QoS) improvements techniques . Case studies for various applications . Cyber Security in emergent technologies, infrastructures and applications Important Dates Paper submission due: June 30th, 2015 (extended, firm) Author notification: Aug. 1st, 2015 Camera-ready due: Aug. 20th, 2015 Author registration: Aug. 20th, 2015 Early registration: Sep. 20th, 2015 Conference date: Nov. 3-5., 2015 Submission Information Submissions should include abstract, 5-10 keywords, and the e-mail address of the corresponding author and be in PDF format. Each submission must not exceed 6 pages in the IEEE 8.5 x 11 two-column format with 10-12 point font (Template: DOC or LaTeX), including tables and figures. Each accepted paper needs at least one author to register in the conference. Each submissionshould be regarded as an undertaking that, should the submission be accepted, at least one of the authors must attend the conference to present the work in order that the accepted paper can be put into digital library. The final version of an accepted paper will be limited to 10 pages in IEEE proceeding format. Please submit papers in PDF format through the CSCloud web site. Manuscript should be prepared following the IEEE Computer Society Press Proceedings. Author Guidelines that can be found at: https://www.ieee.org/conferences_events/conferences/publishing/templates.html The accepted papers have to be presented orally at the conference and will be published by IEEE Computer Society Press (indexed by EI) and included in IEEE Digital Library. Selected best papers will be recommended to the spe cial issues of well-regarded SCI journals.
