CSS 2015 Call For Papers
New York, USA

A large fraction of the population in the world now spends a great
deal of time in cyberspace. Cyberspace has become a critical
infrastructure that is embedded in almost all other critical
infrastructures and enables every movement of human society. It is
thus very much in the public interest to have a safe and secure
cyberspace. In the past several years, there has been large number of
attacks in cyberspace, such as attacks on the Internet, attacks on
embedded/real-time computing and control systems, and attacks on
dedicated computing facilities. Many research efforts have been made
to achieve cyberspace safety and security, such as blocking and
limiting the impact of compromise, enabling accountability, promoting
deployment of defense systems, and deterring potential attackers and
penalizing attackers.

The 7th International Symposium on Cyberspace Safety and Security
provides a leading edge forum to foster interaction between
researchers and developers with the cyberspace safety and security
communities, and to give attendees an opportunity to network with
experts in this area. It focusses on Cyberspace Safety and Security,
such as uthentication, access control, availability, integrity,
privacy, confidentiality, dependability and sustainability issues of
