                    Third GI SIG SIDAR Conference on
      Detection of Intrusions & Malware, and Vulnerability Assessment

                          In Cooperation with
        IEEE Computer Society Task Force on Information Assurance

                           Berlin, Germany
                          July 13 - 14, 2006



The special interest group Security - Intrusion Detection and Response
(SIDAR) of the German Informatics Society (GI) organizes DIMVA as an annual
conference that brings together experts from throughout and outside of
Europe to discuss the state of the art in the areas of intrusion detection,
malware detection, and vulnerability assessment. DIMVA invites three types
of submissions:

- Full papers of up to 20 pages, presenting novel and mature research
  results. Full papers will be reviewed, and papers accepted for
  presentation at the conference will be included in the proceedings. The
  proceedings are planned to appear in Springer's Lecture Notes in Computer
  Science (LNCS) series.

- Industry papers of up to 10 pages, describing best practices, case
  studies, lessons learned, or latest product developments. Industry papers
  will be reviewed and, if accepted for presentation at the conference,
  published on the DIMVA 2006 Web site.

- Proposals of two-to-three-hour tutorials on topics of current or emerging
  interest. Tutorial proposals must not exceed 3 pages. They must clearly
  identify the intended audience, include a brief biography of the speaker,
  and contain sufficient material to provide a sense of their scope and
  depth. Tutorial material will be published on the DIMVA 2006 Web site.

The scope of DIMVA is broad and includes, but is not restricted to the
following areas:

Vulnerability Assessment:
- Vulnerabilities and exploitation techniques
- Vulnerability detection
- Avoidance of vulnerabilities and software testing
- Reverse engineering
- ROI on vulnerability assessment and management

Intrusion Detection:
- Intrusion techniques
- Intrusion detection and event correlation
- Intrusion response and intrusion prevention
- Benchmarking of intrusion detection and prevention systems
- Incident management and response

- Malware techniques
- Malware detection
- Malware prevention
- Benchmarking of malware detection and prevention systems
- Computer and network forensics

DIMVA particularly encourages papers that discuss the technical as well as
the organizational integration of vulnerability, intrusion and malware
detection techniques and systems for large-scale communication and
enterprise networks.

Furthermore, papers from other communities such as law-making, law
enforcement, economics and public administration that present these
communities' perspectives on and contributions to the above IT security
issues are welcomed.
