3rd European Conference on Computer Network Defence (EC2ND)
4-5 October 2007, FORTH-ICS, Heraklion, Crete, Greece
In cooperation with the European Network and Information Security Agency

Call for Papers
(Submissions due 24 June 2007)

The 3rd European Conference on Computer Network Defence
will take place in October 2007 at the Foundation for
Research and Technology Hellas, in Crete, Greece. 

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. 

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.

Topics include but are not limited to:

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

Submitting a Paper

You are hereby invited to submit papers up to 6-8
single-spaced pages long. 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
favoured. All submissions will be reviewed by the
Program Committee. Accepted papers will be published in
the electronic proceedings of the conference. Some
papers may have to go through a shepherding process in
collaboration with one of the PC members.
