VizSec2011 Announces Call for Papers
8TH International Symposium on Visualization for Cyber Security
to be held at Carnegie Mellon University in Pittsburgh, PA

NORTHPORT, NY, February 2, 2011 - Organizers of VizSec2011, the
international conference on information visualization for
cybersecurity, today announced its "Call for Papers". The 8th Annual
International Symposium on Visualization for Cyber Security (VizSec)
will be held July 20, 2011 at Carnegie Mellon University in
Pittsburgh, PA. VizSec2011 will be held in conjunction with the
Symposium on Usable Privacy and Security (SOUPS 2011).

The annual symposium joins academic, government, and industry leaders
from around the globe to share the latest developments and
applications of visualization techniques to address current cyber
security challenges. Researchers and practitioners are invited to
submit technical papers and panel session proposals that offer a novel
contribution to security visualization. Papers are encouraged on new
visualization technologies and methods that have been applied and
demonstrated to be useful in a range of security domains including,
but not limited to, computer forensics, risk assessment, cryptography,
malware analysis, and situational awareness.

Submitted papers will be refereed by members of the VizSec2011
Organizing Committee for inclusion in the technical program and
symposium proceedings. Chairs of the VizSec2011 Organizing Committee
are Lt. Col. Gregory Conti (U.S. Military Academy at West Point), John
Gerth (Stanford University), Tamara Yu (MIT Lincoln Laboratory), Marc
Abbott (U.S. Military Academy at West Point) and Anita D'Amico (Secure
Decisions division of Applied Visions, Inc.). The Organizing Committee
will also select an accepted paper to receive the VizSec 2011 Best
Paper award.

The deadline for full paper submissions is April 1, 2011 and panel
abstracts are due by April 15, 2011. Submission guidelines for papers
and panel proposals are available online at The
symposium organizers encourage early submissions as they are
anticipating increased interest this year. Accepted papers for VizSec
will again be published and available from ACM Digital Library as part
of the ACM International Conference Proceedings Series.
