2008 IFIP International Workshop on Network and System Security
18-19 October 2008, Shanghai, China
In conjunction with IFIP International Conference on Network and
Parallel Computing (NPC 2008)

Call For Papers
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, adaptive, active and high performance
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 computer networks
and systems. 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 interact with experts in academia, industry and
governments. NSS 2008 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 to:
* Active Defense Systems
* Adaptive Defense Systems
* Benchmark, Analysis and Evaluation of Security Systems
* Distributed Access Control and Trust Management
* Distributed Attack Systems and Mechanisms
* Distributed Intrusion Detection/Prevention Systems 
* Denial-of-Service Attacks and Countermeasures
* High Performance Security Systems
* Identity Management and Authentication
* Implementation, Deployment and Management of Security Systems
* Intelligent Defense Systems
* Internet and Network Forensics
* Large-scale Attacks and Defense
* RFID Security and Privacy
* Security Architectures in Distributed Network Systems 
* Security for Critical Infrastructures
* Security for P2P systems and Grid Systems
* Security in E-Commerce
* Security and Privacy in Wireless Networks 
* Secure Mobile Agents and Mobile Code
* Security Simulation and Tools
* 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 go to http://nss.cqu.edu.au and follow the
link "Submit Your Paper". 
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. 
The publications of this workshop will be IEEE Computer Society
Proceedings (EI, ISTP, and INSPEC indexed). Selected best papers will be
published in some international journal special issues.
