Call for Papers: DIMVA 2014

11th International Conference on
Detection of Intrusions and Malware & Vulnerability Assessment (DIMVA)

Royal Holloway London, Egham, UK
July 10-11, 2014


The annual DIMVA conference serves as a premier forum for advancing the
state of the art in intrusion detection, malware detection, and
vulnerability assessment. Each year, DIMVA brings together international
experts from academia, industry, and government to present and discuss
novel research in these areas.  DIMVA is organized by the special interest
group "Security - Intrusion Detection and Response" (SIDAR) of the German
Informatics Society (GI).  The conference proceedings will appear as a
volume in the Springer Lecture Notes in Computer Science (LNCS) series
(approval pending).

Paper Submission

All papers must be submitted electronically in PDF format via the
conference website.  Submissions must be formatted in LNCS style 
according to the instructions provided by Springer Verlag at Submitted papers must be in
English and must not substantially overlap work that has been published
before, or that is simultaneously in submission to a journal or a
conference with proceedings. Simultaneous submission, submission of
previously published work, and plagiarism constitute dishonesty or fraud. 
DIMVA prohibits these practices and may take appropriate action against
authors who have committed them. Authors of accepted papers must ensure
that their papers will be presented at the conference. Presentations must
also be held in English. Authors are encouraged to consider ethical aspects
of their research and the impact of publication of their work.
