GraMSec 2019: The Sixth International Workshop on Graphical Models for 
Hoboken, NJ, USA - June 24, 2019
Co-located with CSF 2019

*Submissions received by April 5 receive priority consideration*

The use of graphical security models to represent and analyse the 
security of systems has gained an increasing research attention over the 
last two decades. Formal methods and computer security researchers, as 
well as security professionals from the industry and government, have 
proposed various graphical security models, metrics, and measurements. 
Graphical models are used to capture different security facets and 
address a range of challenges including security assessment, automated 
defence, secure services composition, security policy validation, and 
verification. For example, attack graphs, attack trees, attack-defence 
trees, and attack countermeasure trees represent possible ways of 
attacking and defending a system while misuse cases and mal-activity 
diagrams capture threats and abusive behaviour of users.

This year, we encourage excellent submissions related, but not 
restricted, to the following broad headings:
1. Graph representations: mathematical, conceptual, and implemented 
tools for describing and reasoning about security
2. Logical approaches: formal logical tools for representing and 
reasoning about graphs and their use as modelling tools in security
3. Machine learning: modelling and reasoning about the role of big data 
and machine learning in security operations
4. Networks in national security: terrorist networks, counter-terrorism 
networks; safety in national infrastructure (e.g., utilities and 
5. Risk analysis and management: models of risk management in business 
and organizational architectures
6. Social networks: using and reasoning about social graphs, network 
analysis, network protocols, social mapping, sociometry.
Preference will be given to papers likely to stimulate high-quality 
debate at the Workshop.

We solicit two types of submissions:
- Regular papers (up to 15 pages, excluding the bibliography and 
well-marked appendices) describing original and unpublished work within 
the scope of the workshop.
- Short papers (up to 7 pages, excluding the bibliography and 
well-marked appendices) describing original and unpublished work in 

The reviewers are not required to read the appendices, so the papers 
should be intelligible without them. All submissions must be prepared 
using the LNCS style. Each paper will undergo a thorough review process. 
Submissions should be made using the GraMSec 2019 EasyChair website:

As in previous editions, post-proceedings will been made available in 
the Lecture Notes in Computer Science (LNCS) series, published by 
Springer. This will published after the workshop, thus permiting the 
authors to incorporate feedback.
