CALL FOR PAPERS The 6th International Workshop on Cyber Crime (IWCC 2017) to be held in conjunction with the 12th International Conference on Availability, Reliability and Security (ARES 2017 - http://www.ares-conference.eu) August 29 - September 1, 2017, Reggio Calabria, Italy Conference website: https://www.ares-conference.eu/workshops/iwcc/ IMPORTANT DATES Submission Deadline May 1, 2017 Author Notification May 15, 2017 Proceedings Version June 20, 2017 Conference August 29 - September 1, 2017 OVERVIEW Today's world's societies are becoming more and more dependent on open networks such as the Internet - where commercial activities, business transactions and government services are realized. This has led to the fast development of new cyber threats and numerous information security issues which are exploited by cyber criminals. The inability to provide trusted secure services in contemporary computer network technologies has a tremendous socio-economic impact on global enterprises as well as individuals. Moreover, the frequently occurring international frauds impose the necessity to conduct the investigation of facts spanning across multiple international borders. Such examination is often subject to different jurisdictions and legal systems. A good illustration of the above being the Internet, which has made it easier to perpetrate traditional crimes. It has acted as an alternate avenue for the criminals to conduct their activities, and launch attacks with relative anonymity. The increased complexity of the communications and the networking infrastructure is making investigation of the crimes difficult. Traces of illegal digital activities are often buried in large volumes of data, which are hard to inspect with the aim of detecting offences and collecting evidence. Nowadays, the digital crime scene functions like any other network, with dedicated administrators functioning as the first responders. This poses new challenges for law enforcement policies and forces the computer societies to utilize digital forensics to combat the increasing number of cybercrimes. Forensic professionals must be fully prepared in order to be able to provide court admissible evidence. To make these goals achievable, forensic techniques should keep pace with new technologies. The aim of this workshop is to bring together the research accomplishments provided by the researchers from academia and the industry. The other goal is to show the latest research results in the field of digital forensics and to present the development of tools and techniques, which assist the investigation process of potentially illegal cyber activity. We encourage prospective authors to submit related distinguished research papers on the subject of both: theoretical approaches and practical case reviews. TOPICS OF INTEREST COMPRISE BUT ARE NOT LIMITED TO: - Criminal use of IoT e.g. IoT-based botnets - Criminal to criminal (C2C) communications - Criminal to victim (C2V) communications - Anti-forensic techniques and methods - Cybercrime related investigations - Privacy issues in digital forensics - Novel techniques in exploit kits - Network anomalies detection - Crime-as-a-service - Mobile malware - Identification, authentication and collection of digital evidence - Steganography/steganalysis and covert/subliminal channels - Incident response, investigation and evidence handling - Political and business issues related to digital forensics and anti-forensic techniques - Novel applications of information hiding in networks - Cybercrimes: evolution, new trends and detection - Network traffic analysis, traceback and attribution - Integrity of digital evidence and live investigations - Ransomware: evolution, functioning, types, etc. - Criminal abuse of clouds and social networks - Watermarking and intellectual property theft WORKSHOP CHAIRS Artur Janicki Warsaw University of Technology, Poland Wojciech Mazurczyk Warsaw University of Technology, Poland Krzysztof Szczypiorski Warsaw University of Technology, Poland SUBMISSION The submission guidelines valid for the IWCC workshop are the same as for the ARES conference. They can be found at: https://www.ares-conference.eu/conference/conference/submission/. Submission of a paper implies that should the paper be accepted, at least one of the authors will register and present the paper in the conference. Papers will be accepted based on peer review (3 per paper) and should contain original, high quality work. All papers must be written in English. Authors are invited to submit Regular Papers (maximum 6 pages) via EasyChair. Papers accepted by the workshop will be published in the Conference Proceedings of ARES 2017 that will be published by the International Conference Proceedings Series published by ACM (ACM ICPS).
