7th European Conference on Computer Network Defense


The 7th European Conference on Computer Network Defense is organized
by Chalmers University of Technology and will take place in September
2011 in Gothenburg, Sweden.

The theme of the conference is the protection of computer
networks. The conference will draw participants from academia and
industry in Europe and beyond to discuss hot topics in applied network
and systems security.

Important Dates
* Submissions due:      4 July, 2011
* Accept.Notification:  4 August, 2011
* Final papers due:     19 August, 2011
* Conference dates:     6-7 September, 2011

Topics of Interest
EC2ND invites submissions presenting novel ideas at an early stage
with the intention to act as a discussion forum and feedback channel
for promising, innovative security research. While our goal is to
solicit ideas that are not completely worked out, and might have
challenging and interesting open questions, we expect submissions to
be supported by some evidence of feasibility or preliminary
quantitative results. This year we are especially interested in papers
concerning the protection against attacks in "special environments"
(such as the ICT component of the smart grid) or protection against
attacks that could cause a large societal impact.

Topics include but are not limited to:

* Intrusion Detection
* Denial-of-Service
* Privacy Protection
* Security Policy
* Peer-to-Peer and Grid Security
* Network Monitoring
* Web Security
* Vulnerability Management and Tracking
* Network Forensics
* Wireless and Mobile Security
* Cryptography
* Network Discovery and Mapping
* Incident Response and Management
* Malicious Software
* Web Services Security
* Legal and Ethical Issues

Format of the submissions
You are hereby invited to submit papers up to 6-8 pages, 8.5" x 11",
two-column format. We particularly encourage position papers on
preliminary work that shows promise, rather than mature and
well-polished papers. Surprising results and thought-provoking ideas
will be strongly favored. All submissions will be reviewed by the
Program Committee. Authors of accepted papers will be given the option
of including their paper in the proceedings of the conference, which
will be published by IEEE. We suggest you to format your paper
according to IEEE-CS guidelines:
