CALL FOR PAPERS 2nd ACM WORKSHOP ON INFORMATION SHARING AND COLLABORATIVE SECURITY (WISCS 2015) https://sites.google.com/site/wiscs2015/ Held in conjunction with 22nd ACM Conference on Computer and Communications Security (CCS), in Denver, Colorado, USA. Oct. 12, 2015 Sharing of cyber-security related information is believed to greatly enhance the ability of organizations to defend themselves against sophisticated attacks. If one organization detects a breach sharing associated security indicators (such as attacker IP addresses, domain names, file hashes etc.) provides valuable, actionable information to other organizations. The analysis of shared security data promises novel insights into emerging attacks. Sharing higher level intelligence about threat actors, the tools they use and mitigations provides defenders with much needed context for better preparing and responding to attacks. In the US and the EU major efforts are underway to strengthen information sharing. Yet, there are a number of technical and policy challenges to realizing this vision. Which information exactly should be shared? How can privacy and confidentiality be protected? How can we create high-fidelity intelligence from shared data that minimizes false positives? The 2nd Workshop on Information Sharing and Collaborative Security (WISCS 2015) aims to bring together experts and practitioners from academia, industry and government to present innovative research, case studies, and legal and policy issues. The workshop solicits original research papers in these areas, both full and short papers. Workshop proceedings will be published in the ACM Digital Library. Topics of interest for the workshop include, but are not limited to: Collaborative intrusion detection Case studies of information sharing Domain name and IP address blacklists Collaborative approaches to spear‐phishing, DDoS and other attacks Privacy and confidentiality Data deidentification Cryptographic protocols for collaborative security Scalable security analysis on shared data Ontologies and standards for sharing security data UX and behavioral aspects of collaborating Policy and legal issues Surveillance issues Trust models Attacks on information sharing Economics of security collaboration IMPORTANT DATES Paper submission due: June 22, 2015 (extended) Author notification: July 19, 2015 Camera ready copies due: July 29, 2015 Workshop: October 12, 2015.

Regular submissions should be at most 10 pages in the ACM double-column format including bibliography, but excluding well-marked appendices, and at most 12 pages total. Committee members are not required to read the appendices, and so the paper should be intelligible without them. Submissions should not be anonymized. The workshop will also consider short submissions of up to 4 pages for case studies, results that are preliminary or that require only a few pages to describe. Authors of regular submitted papers will indicate at the time of submission whether they would like their paper to also be considered for publication as a short paper (4 proceedings pages). Submissions are to be made to the Easy Chair submission web site at https://www.easychair.org/conferences/?conf=wiscs2015. You will be requested to upload the file of your paper (in PDF format only). Submissions not meeting these guidelines risk rejection without consideration of their merits. Papers must be received by the deadline of June 8, 2015 to be considered. Notification of acceptance or rejection will be sent to authors by July 19, 2015. The camera ready version must be prepared by July 29, 2015 (firm). Proceedings of the workshop will be published by ACM on a CD, available to the workshop attendees. Papers will be included in the ACM Digital Library, with a specific ISBN. Each accepted paper must be presented by an author, who will have to be registered by the early-bird registration deadline.
