The intention of this workshop foster interaction among researchers from
the industry, universities, and other research institutes on various
aspects of network monitoring, attack detection and mitigation, suitable
for high-speed networks.

The workshop aims to provide a forum for presenting and discussing very
recent work and to discuss relevant issues in a timely manner.
The workshop will consist of a number of short informal presentations
and discussion on current research, hot topics, position statements, and
controversial opinions.
The workshop is in the spirit of the IEEE workshop series on High Speed
Networking (c.f. ), and aims
to be relatively small (not more than 60 participants), with a
considerable amount of time devoted to informal discussion.

The topics of the workshop include but not limited to:

- high-speed network monitoring
- network anomaly detection
- denial of service attack detection and mitigation
- intrusion and worm detection
- attack response mechanisms
- policy based mechanisms for detection and response
- high speed firewall technology
- network honeypots
- use of overlay and peer-to-peer networks for detection and
- detection and mitigation  of attacks in overlay networks"
- attack detection and mitigation in mobile networks

The workshop format will include invited keynote presentations as well
as short presentations selected from the submissions.

Position papers and presentations will be published in workshop
proceedings with ISDN number and will be made available on the web.


Prospective authors are invited to submit original contributions which
describe recent and innovative research results or developments within
the scope of the workshop.
Submissions must be in PDF, single spaced, IEEE INFOCOM formating
guidelines, templates for which are available at:

The following length limitations apply:
- position papers of up to 6 pages
- extended abstracts of up to 3 pages

Submission of electronic versions of the presentation slides is due on
15 September 2006. These slides will be included in the on-line
proceedings of the workshop, which will be compiled in advance of the event.

Submissions are via web upload according to the instructions that will
be published on
