A large fraction of the population in the world now spends a great
deal of time in cyberspace. Cyberspace has become a critical
infrastructure that is embedded in almost all other critical
infrastructures and enables every movement of human society. It is
thus very much in the public interest to have a safe and secure

In the past several years, there has been large number of attacks in
cyberspace, such as attacks on the Internet, attacks on
embedded/real-time computing and control systems, and attacks on
dedicated computing facilities. Many research efforts have been made
to achieve cyberspace safety and security, such as blocking and
limiting the impact of compromise, enabling accountability, promoting
deployment of defense systems, and deterring potential attackers and
penalizing attackers.  In this context, we focus our program on
Cyberspace Safety and Security, such as authentication, access
control, availability, integrity, privacy, confidentiality,
dependability and sustainability issues of cyberspace. The aim of this
symposium is to provide a leading edge forum to foster interaction
between researchers and developers with the cyberspace safety and
security communities, and to give attendees an opportunity to network
with experts in this area. The symposium will be a highly focused,
professional, high quality, and social event.
