Gothenburg, Sweden - 19-20 June, 2019 
https://www.dimva2019.org/ 

=============================================================================

# Important Dates: 

- Paper Submission Deadline: 18 February 2019, 23:59:59 UTC 
- Notification to Authors: 12 April 2019 
- Final Paper Submission Deadline: 22 April 2019 
- Conference: 19-20 June 2019 


# General Information 

The annual DIMVA conference serves as a premier forum for advancing the state 
of the art in the broader areas of intrusion detection, malware analysis, 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 in Springer Lecture Notes 
in Computer Science (LNCS) series. 


# Types of Submissions Solicited: 

DIMVA solicits submissions of high-quality, original scientific papers 
presenting novel research on malware analysis, intrusion detection, 
vulnerability assessment, and related systems security topics. Submissions of 
two types are invited: 

FULL PAPERS, presenting novel and mature research results. Full papers are 
limited to 20 pages in Springer LNCS format, including bibliography and 
appendices. 

SHORT PAPERS, presenting original, still ongoing work that has not yet
reached the maturity required for a full paper. Short papers are
limited to 10 pages in LNCS format, including bibliography and
appendices. Short papers will be included in the proceedings. The
title of short papers must start with the words "Extended Abstract".

Papers that do not follow the above formatting guidelines may be rejected 
without review. 


# Indicative topics of interest include (but are not limited to): 

## Intrusions 
- Novel approaches and domains 
- Insider detection 
- Prevention and response 
- Data leakage, exfiltration, and poisoning 
- Result correlation and cooperation 
- Evasion and other attacks 
- Potentials and limitations 
- Operational experiences 
- Privacy, legal, and social aspects 
- Targeted attacks 

## Malware 
- Automated analyses 
- Behavioral models 
- Prevention and containment 
- Classification 
- Lineage 
- Forensics and recovery 
- Underground economy 
- Vulnerabilities in malware 

## Vulnerability detection 
- Vulnerability prevention 
- Vulnerability analysis 
- Exploitation and defenses 
- Hardware vulnerabilities 
- Situational awareness 
- Active probing 

Papers will be judged on novelty, significance, correctness, and clarity. 
We expect all papers to provide enough detail to enable reproducibility of the 
experimental results. We encourage papers that bridge research in different 
communities. We also welcome experience papers that clearly articulate lessons 
learnt. 

Submissions must be original work and may not be under submission to another 
venue at the time of review. For further details on the submission process, 
please visit the conference website: https://www.dimva2019.org 

At least one author of each accepted paper is required to physically present 
the submitted work at the conference, for the paper to be included in the 
proceedings. 


# Ethical Considerations: 

Submissions that report experiments with data gathered from human subjects 
should disclose whether the research received approval from an institutional 
ethics review board (IRB), if applicable, and what measures were adopted to 
minimize risks to privacy. 

Submissions that describe experiments related to vulnerabilities in
software or systems should discuss the steps taken to avoid negatively
affecting any third-parties (e.g., in case of probing of network
devices), and how the authors plan to responsibly disclose the
vulnerabilities to the appropriate software or system vendors or
owners before publication.
