Web Intelligence for Information Security Workshop
In conjunction with WI-IAT 2011, 22-27 August, Lyon, France

We are soliciting innovative submissions on applying pertinent areas
of natural-language-related web intelligence to new and existing
issues in information assurance and security. Contributions from
closely related areas are welcome. Information assurance and security
topics may range from web security per se, with its trust, deception
detection, and credibility concerns (as applied to text)--to
counterintelligence, preemptive cyber attack detection, and
disinformation as part of cyber warfare. The workshop goal is to bring
together researchers and practitioners in the two areas, thus creating
a multidisciplinary atmosphere and providing a new and exciting
testing ground for web intelligence, while contributing at the same
time to the scientific foundation of cyber security.
Paper submissions should be limited to a maximum of 4 pages in the
IEEE 2-column format.
The areas of interest include, but are not limited to:
o Web text clues for security, trust, deception detection and credibility
o Sensitive postings in social networks
o Detection of (potentially) sensitive documents on the web
o Inference and reasoning on security issues
o Violation of privacy and anonymity in text
o Prediction of future cyber attacks from text
o Detection and generation of disinformation
o Applying established information assurance and security algorithms to text
o Security and privacy in web searches
