CALL FOR PAPERS

            9th International Symposium on 
       Foundations & Practice of Security (FPS 2016)

  October 24-25-26 2016 / Québec City, Québec, Canada


Protecting the communication and data infrastructure of an increasingly
inter-connected world has become vital to the normal functioning of all
aspects of our world. Security has emerged as an important scientific
discipline whose many multifaceted complexities deserve the attention and
synergy of the mathematical, computer science and engineering communities.

After the previous meetings held in La Rochelle, Montreal, Grenoble,
Toronto, Paris and Clermont-Ferrand this 9th edition of the FPS symposium
will be held in Quebec city, Qc, Canada.

The aim of FPS is to discuss and exchange theoretical and practical ideas
that address security issues in inter-connected systems. It aims to provide
scientific presentations as well as to establish links, promote scientific
collaboration, joint research programs, and student exchanges between
institutions involved in this important and fast moving research field.

We also invite papers from researchers and practitioners working in
security, privacy, trustworthy data systems and related areas to submit
their original papers. The main topics, but not limited to, include:

Computer and Network Security
Formal foundations in Information or Operational Security Security of
Service Oriented Architectures Information Theoretic Security Security of
Cloud Computing Security Management and Security Policies Policy-based
Security Architectures Security of P2P systems Security & Privacy on Social
Networks Access Control Languages Data Mining & Watermarking Cryptography &
Cryptanalysis Threat Analysis and Trust Management Privacy & Sensitive Data
Management Policy-based Distributed Information Systems Security in Sensor
Networks and RFIDs Security of Cloud Computing, Grid Computing Security of
Distributed Embedded Middleware Distributed Security Protocols & Policies
Security and Privacy in Digital Currencies Malware, Botnet and Advanced
Persistent Threats Code Reverse Engineering and Vulnerability Exploitation
Side Channel & Physical Attacks Social Engineering Security of Big-Data

Submissions Guidelines

Full papers should be at most 16 pages, including the bibliography and
appendices. Short and Position papers should be up to 8 pages. Authors
should indicate whether their paper is a "position paper" to differentiate
them from regular ones (you mention "Position paper" in the title).
Committee members are not required to read the appendices, so the paper
should be intelligible without them.
All submissions must be written in English.
Authors must submit their papers by the deadline indicated below, using the
EasyChair web site (using the link) and following the requirements stated
there. All papers will be refereed. The submitted contribution should be
formatted according to Springer's LNCS style. Submissions by PhD students as
well as surveys and controversial ideas are encouraged. Case studies
(successful or not) are also encouraged.


As in previous editions, proceedings will be published by Springer-Verlag in
the Lecture Notes in Computer Science (LNCS) series. At least one author of
each accepted paper must register to the symposium, by the date indicated by
the organizers, and present the paper.
