CALL FOR PAPERS -- FPS 2018 FPS 2018 11th Intl. Symposium on Foundations & Practice of Security Montreal, Canada 13-15 November 2018 (Submissions due 3 September 2018) http://fps2018.encs.concordia.ca/call-for-papers/ The eleventh edition of FPS will be hosted by Concordia University in Montreal, Canada, on November 13, 14 and 15 2018. We invite researchers and practitioners from all countries working in security, privacy, trustworthy data systems and related areas to participate in the event. 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. 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, include: * Access Control Languages * Code Reverse Engineering and Vulnerability Exploitation * Computer and Network Security * Cryptography & Cryptanalysis * Data mining & watermarking * Distributed security protocols & policies * Formal foundations in information or operational security * Information theoretic security * Malware, botnet and advanced persistent threats * Privacy & sensitive data management * Policy-based distributed information systems * Policy-based security architectures * Security & privacy in digital currencies * Security & privacy in social networks * Security in sensor networks and RFIDs * Security of big-data * Security of cloud computing, grid computing * Security of distributed embedded middleware * Security of P2P systems * Security of service oriented architectures * Security management and security policies * Side channel & physical attacks * Social engineering * Threat analysis and trust management Submissions Guidelines All submissions must be written in English. Full papers should be at most 16 pages, including the bibliography and the appendices. Committee members are not required to read the appendices, so the paper should be intelligible without them. 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 (“Position paper” should be mentioned in the title). Authors must submit their papers by September 3, 2018, using the EasyChair web site (https://easychair.org/conferences/?conf=fps2018) and following the requirements stated there. All papers will be refereed. The submitted contribution should be formatted according to Springer’s LNCS style (TeX, Word). Submissions by PhD students as well as surveys and controversial ideas are encouraged. Case studies (successful or not) are also encouraged.
