Protecting the communication and data infrastructure of an
increasingly inter-connected world has become vital to the normal
functioning of all aspects of our world. Security has emerged as an
important scientific discipline whose many multifaceted complexities
deserve the attention and synergy of the mathematical, computer
science and engineering communities.

After the previous meetings held in La Rochelle, Montreal, Grenoble,
Toronto, Paris, Clermont-Ferrand and Quebec city, this 10th edition of
the FPS symposium will be held in Nancy, France.

The aim of FPS is to discuss and exchange theoretical and practical
ideas that address security issues in inter-connected systems. It aims
to provide scientific presentations as well as to establish links,
promote scientific collaboration, joint research programs, and student
exchanges between institutions involved in this important and fast
moving research field.

We also invite papers from researchers and practitioners working in
security, privacy, trustworthy data systems and related areas to
submit their original papers.  The main topics, but not limited to,

* Computer and Network Security 
* Formal foundations in Information or Operational Security 
* Security of Service Oriented Architectures 
* Information Theoretic Security 
* Security of Cloud Computing 
* Security Management and Security Policies 
* Policy-based Security Architectures 
* Security of P2P systems 
* Security & Privacy on Social Networks 
* Access Control Languages 
* Data Mining & Watermarking 
* Cryptography & Cryptanalysis 
* Threat Analysis and Trust Management 
* Privacy & Sensitive Data Management 
* Policy-based Distributed Information Systems 
* Security in Sensor Networks and RFIDs 
* Security of Cloud Computing, Grid Computing 
* Security of Distributed Embedded Middleware 
* Distributed Security Protocols & Policies 
* Security and Privacy in Digital Currencies 
* Malware, Botnet and Advanced Persistent Threats 
* Code Reverse Engineering and Vulnerability Exploitation 
* Side Channel & Physical Attacks 
* Social Engineering 
* Security of Big-Data 

Submissions Guidelines: 

Full papers should be at most 16 pages, including the bibliography and
appendices.  Short and Position papers should be up to 8
pages. Authors should indicate whether their paper is a "position
paper" to differentiate them from regular ones (you mention "Position
paper" in the title).

Committee members are not required to read the appendices, so the
paper should be intelligible without them.

All submissions must be written in English. 

Authors must submit their papers by the deadline indicated below,
using the EasyChair web site (using the link
https://easychair.org/conferences/?conf=fps2017 ) and following the
requirements stated there. All papers will be refereed. The submitted
contribution should be formatted according to Springer's LNCS
style.  Submissions by PhD students as well as surveys and
controversial ideas are encouraged.  Case studies (successful or not)
are also encouraged.

As in previous editions, proceedings will be published by
Springer-Verlag in the Lecture Notes in Computer Science (LNCS)
series. At least one author of each accepted paper must register to
the symposium, by the date indicated by the organizers, and present
the paper.
