IWSPA 2019
5th ACM International Workshop on Security and Privacy Analytics 
March 27th, 2019

Co-located with ACM CODASPY 2019 at Dallas, TX, USA
5th ACM International Workshop on Security and Privacy Analytics 2019

Increasingly, sophisticated techniques from machine learning, data
mining, statistics and natural language processing are being applied
to challenges in security and privacy fields. However, experts from
these areas have no medium where they can meet and exchange ideas so
that strong collaborations can emerge, and cross-fertilization of
these areas can occur. Moreover, current courses and curricula in
security do not sufficiently emphasize background in these areas and
students in security and privacy are not emerging with deep knowledge
of these topics.

Hence, we propose a workshop that will address the research and
development efforts in which analytical techniques from machine
learning, data mining, natural language processing and statistics are
applied to solve security and privacy challenges (“security
analytics”). Submissions of papers related to methodology, design,
techniques and new directions for security and privacy that make
significant use of machine learning, data mining, statistics or
natural language processing are welcome. Furthermore, submissions on
educational topics and systems in the field of security analytics are
also highly encouraged.

Short Submission Guidelines:

Papers must be at most 10 pages in length total and use the ACM
CODASPY template. All submissions must describe original research, not
published nor currently under review for another workshop, conference,
or journal. Submission implies the willingness of at least one author
to attend the workshop and present the paper. A limited number of
high-quality submissions may be selected for publication in a special
issue of a journal. All papers must be submitted electronically via
the Easychair system.
