Call for Papers

The Second International Workshop on Emerging Cyberthreats and
Countermeasures (co-located with the International Conference on
Availability, Reliability and Security, ARES 2014) aims at bringing
together researchers and practitioners working in different areas
related to cybersecurity. All unveilings regarding massive worldwide
online surveillance in the past year led to a somewhat changed cyber
world. We want to contribute to the current discussions about all
technical aspects of this problem. Therefore this years' workshop
focuses on new Targeted Attacks, Malware and all aspects of
Privacy. Contributions demonstrating current weaknesses and threats as
well as new countermeasures are warmly welcome.  Topics

Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:

    Novel Attacks against Computers and Networks
    Targeted Attacks
    Malware Detection and Analysis
    Mobile Malware
    Botnet Detection, Analysis and Mitigation
    Underground Economy
    Cyberwarfare, Cyberespionage

    Network Security
    Mobile Device Security
    Intrusion Detection and Prevention
    Anomaly Detection
    Honeypots and Honeynets

Submission guidelines

Authors are invited to submit papers in Conference Publishing Services
(CPS) Proceedings Manuscripts style (two columns, single-spaced,
including figures and references, using 10 pt fonts, and number each
page). Please consult the CPS Author Guidelines for more information!

We solicit the submission of research and application papers (8 pages)
representing original, previously unpublished work. Submitted papers
will be evaluated based on originality, significance, technical
soundness, and clarity of exposition. We also encourage submission of
work in progress (currently not finished and/or evaluated) to get
feedback and discussions on new research ideas.

Duplicate submissions are not allowed. A submission is considered to
be a duplicate submission if it has been submitted to (or if it has
been already accepted to be published in) other
conferences/workshops/journals. Duplicate submissions thus will be
automatically rejected without review.

Contact author must provide the following information: Paper title,
authors' names, affiliations, postal address, phone, fax, and e-mail
address of the author(s), about 200-250 word abstract, and about five
keywords. Paper registration and submission is done through the ARES
Paper Management System.

Submission of a paper implies that should the paper be accepted, at
least one of the authors will register for the ARES conference and
present the paper in the workshop. Guidelines in preparing and
submitting the final manuscript(s) will be given after the
notification of acceptance.

This workshop requires anonymized submissions, so please make sure
that submitted papers contain neither author names nor
affiliations. Papers should avoid revealing their authors identity in
the text. When referring to your previous work, do so in the third
person, as though it were written by someone else.  Publication

All accepted papers of ARES 2013 and associated workshops were
published as ISBN proceedings published by IEEE Conference Publishing
Services (CPS):
