2007 IFIP International Workshop on Network and System Security (NSS 2007)
			  September 20, 2007
			    Dalian, China

			 In conjunction with
IFIP International Conference on Network and Parallel Computing (NPC 2007)

Call For Papers

In recent years, there has been significant increase in Internet
attacks, such as DDoS, viruses, worms, spyware, and malware, etc,
causing huge economical and social damage. While the attack systems
have become more easy-to-use, sophisticated, and powerful, interest
has greatly increased in the field of building more effective,
intelligent, and active defense systems which are distributed and
networked. We will focus our program on issues related to Network and
System Security, such as authentication, access control, availability,
integrity, privacy, confidentiality, dependability and sustainability
of network defense systems. We also welcome research reports on
network attack systems; because we believe only by fully understanding
the attack mechanisms can we perform effective and comprehensive
defense. The aim of this workshop is to provide a leading edge forum
to foster interaction between researchers and developers with the
network and system security communities, and to give attendees an
opportunity to network with experts in network and system
security. NSS 2007 will feature new results, challenging research
questions, novel approaches and innovative directions in network and
system security.

Contributions are solicited in all areas of network and system
security research and applications. Topics include, but not limited
* Active Defense Systems
* Benchmark, Analysis and Evaluation of Security Systems
* Distributed Access Control and Trust Management
* Distributed Attack Systems and Mechanisms
* Distributed Database Security
* Distributed Intrusion Detection/Prevention Systems 
* Denial-of-Service Attacks and Countermeasures
* Identity Management and Authentication
* Implementation, Deployment and Management of Security Systems
* Intelligent Defense Systems
* Internet and Network Forensics
* Security Architectures in Distributed Network Systems 
* Security for Large-scale Systems and Critical Infrastructures
* Security for P2P systems and Grid Systems
* Security for Ad-Hoc and Sensor Networks 
* Security in E-Commerce
* Secure Mobile Agents and Mobile Code
* Security Theory and Tools in Network Systems
* Viruses, Worms, and Other Malicious Code
* World Wide Web Security

Paper Submission Guidelines

To submit your paper, please email your paper to Dr Yang Xiang at
y.xiang@cqu.edu.au. A response will be sent back to authors once the
submission is successful.  Submitted papers must not substantially
overlap with papers that have been published or that are
simultaneously submitted to a journal or a conference with
proceedings. Papers are invited reporting original results and
experience. Papers must be clearly presented in English, must not
exceed 15 pages, including tables and figures, with PDF, PostScript,
or MS Word format. Papers will be selected based on their originality,
timeliness, significance, relevance, and clarity of
presentation. Submission of a paper should be regarded as a commitment
that, should the paper be accepted, at least one of the authors will
register and attend the workshop to present the work.  All accepted
papers will be included in the NPC 2007 main conference
proceedings. It is planned that the conference proceedings of NPC 2007
will be published by Springer LNCS (approval pending), which is
indexed by SCI.  Extended versions of selected papers are to be
published in a special issue of Journal of Network and Computer
Applications. The journal is published by Elsevier, SCI indexed, with
impact factor 0.929 (see Journal Citation Reports® 2005, published by
Thomson Scientific).
