The 3rd International Workshop on Recent Advances in Security 
Information and Event Management (RaSIEM 2014)

To be held in conjunction with the 9th International Conference on 
Availability, Reliability and Security (ARES 2014 -- 
http://www.ares-conference.eu ).

September 8 - 12, 2014

University of Fribourg
Fribourg, Switzerland


Management of events and incidents is one of the cornerstones for any 
The SIEM (Security Information and Event Management) approach enables 
near-real time event management as well as proactive management of 
security incidents and events for IT infrastructures.
This workshop addresses research topics in SIEM and related methods and 

The first two RaSIEM workshops in 2012 and 2013 have been successfully 
organized by the project MASSIF (http://www.massif-project.eu).
This year's workshop will be supported by the project ACCEPT 
(http://accept-projekt.de/) which considers in particular the special 
threats for SIEM in virtualized computer systems.


Topics of interest include, but are not limited to
 . Recognition, analysis and treatment of safety-relevant anomalies in 
   virtualized computer systems
 . Adequate sensors in the hypervisor, VMs and in run-time environments 
   for applications
 . Case study of SIEM in operational scenarios
 . Protection of critical infrastructures against (targeted) cyber attacks
 . Recognizing real threats in the multitude of daily alerts
 . Predictive security analysis
 . Ensuring data source reliability
 . Managing data from heterogeneous devices and networks
 . Correlation of highly heterogeneous data to identify threats
 . SIEM for distributed computing
 . Fault tolerance and resilience for SIEM architectures
 . Real-time security analysis for SIEM
 . SIEM for process monitoring and control
 . Decision systems in SIEM
 . Event translation and complex event processing for SIEM
 . Big data approaches of mapping and reducing problem sets with regard 
   to security information to help create meaning and structure from myriad 
   data sources
 . Visualization of security events
