Call for Papers

The 19th Nordic Conference on Secure IT Systems will be held in
Tromsø, Norway, October 15-17, 2014. NordSec addresses a broad range
of topics within IT security with the aims of bringing together
computer security researchers and encourage interaction between
academia and industry. In 2014 the conference has special focus on
Security and Privacy for Cloud Computing and Big Data.

NordSec 2014 welcomes contributions within, but not limited to, the
following areas:

    Applied cryptography
    Communication and network security
    Internet and web-security
    Operating system security
    Software security
    Language-based techniques for security
    Security protocols
    Access control and security models
    Privacy and privacy-enhancing technologies
    Trust and reputation management
    Security evaluation and measurements
    Commercial security policies and enforcement
    Computer crime and information warfare
    Social engineering and phishing
    Intrusion detection
    Security management and audit
    New ideas and paradigms in security
    Usable security and privacy

Contributions should reflect original research, developments, studies
and experience. Papers should not exceed 16 pages (including
references and appendices) in the Springer LNCS format; the
proceedings will be published in the Lecture Notes in Computer
Science. Additionally short papers are solicited for 5 minutes
presentations; they will appear in locally printed proceedings.

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.

All submitted papers will be judged based on their quality and
relevance through double-blind reviewing, where the identities of the
authors are withheld from the reviewers. As an author, you are
required to make a good-faith effort to preserve the anonymity of your
submission, while at the same time allowing the reader to fully grasp
the context of related past work, including your own. Minimally,
please take the following steps when preparing your submission:

    Remove the names and affiliations of authors from the title page.
    Remove acknowledgment of identifying names and funding sources.
    Use care in referring to related work, particularly your own. Do
      not omit references to provide anonymity, as this leaves the
      reviewer unable to grasp the context. Instead, reference your
      past work in the third person, just as you would any other piece
      of related work by another author.
