CALL FOR PAPER

     Workshop on Security and High Performance Computing Systems

                           As part of
     The International Conference on High Performance Computing
                     & Simulation (HPCS’09)
                    and in conjunction with
     The 5th International Wireless Communications and Mobile
                Computing Conference (IWCMC 2009)

                       Leipzig, Germany
                      June 21 - 24, 2009
            Submission Deadline: February 27, 2009

Brief Description:
Providing high performance computing and security is a challenging task.
Internet, operating systems and distributed environments currently suffer
from poor security support and cannot resist common attacks.  Adding
security measures typically degrade performance.  This workshop addresses
relationships between security and high performance systems in three
directions.  First, it considers how to add security properties
(authentication, confidentiality, integrity, non-repudiation, access
control) to high performance computing systems.  In this case, safety
properties can also be addressed, such as availability and fault tolerance
for high performance computing systems.  Second, it covers how to use high
performance computing systems to solve security problems.  For instance, a
grid computation can break an encryption code, or a cluster can support
high performance intrusion detection.  More generally, this topic addresses
every efficient use of a high performance computing system to improve
security.  Third, it investigates the tradeoffs between maintaining high
performance and achieving security in computing systems and solutions to
balance the two objectives.  In all these directions, various performance
analyses or monitoring techniques can be conducted to show the efficiency
of a security infrastructure.

The workshop seeks submissions from academia and industry presenting novel
research on all theoretical and practical aspects of computer and network
security, as well as case studies and implementation experiences.  Papers
should have practical relevance to the construction, evaluation,
application, or operation of secure systems.

This workshop covers (but is not limited to) the following topics:

Access Control
Accounting and Audit
Applied Cryptography
Commercial and Industry Security
Cryptographic Protocols
Data and Application Security
Data/System Integrity
Database Security
Digital Rights Management
Formal Verification of Secure Systems
Identity Management
Inference/Controlled Disclosure
Information Warfare
Intellectual Property Protection
Intrusion and Attack Detection
Intrusion and Attack Response
Key Management
Privacy-Enhancing Technology
Secure Networking
Secure System Design
Security Monitoring & Management
Security for Mobile Code
Security for Specific Domains (e.g., E-Government, E-Business, P2P)
Security in IT Outsourcing
Security in Mobile and Wireless Networks
Security in Untrusted & Adversarial Environments and Systems
Security in Operating Systems
Security Location Services
Security of Grid and Cluster Architectures
Security Visualization
Trust Management Policies
Trust Models

Paper Submissions:
Submitted papers must not have been published or simultaneously submitted
elsewhere.  Submission should include a cover page with authors' names,
affiliation addresses, fax numbers, phone numbers, and email addresses.
Please, indicate clearly the corresponding author and include up to 6
keywords from the above list and an abstract of no more than 350 words.
The full manuscript should be at most 7 pages using the two-column IEEE
format.  Additional pages will be charged additional fee.  Please include
page numbers on all submissions to make it easier for reviewers to provide
helpful comments.  All submissions should be appropriately anonymized
(i.e., papers should not contain author names, affiliations, or obvious
citations).  Please, submit a PDF copy of your full manuscript using the
conference web site submission link at:   http://leibniz.diiga.univpm.it
/~spalazzi/leipzig/submission/ .

Only PDF files will be accepted.  Each paper will receive a minimum of
three reviews.  Papers will be selected based on their originality,
timeliness, significance, relevance, and clarity of presentation.  Initial
selection will be based on full papers.  Authors of accepted papers must
guarantee that their papers will be registered and presented at the
workshop.  Accepted papers will be published in the conference proceedings
which will be available at the time of the meeting.

If you have any questions about paper submission or the workshop, please
contact the organizers.
