Network & Distributed System Security (NDSS) Symposium
Call for Papers

Important Dates
* Titles and abstracts of papers due: 	Friday, August 6, 2010 (11:59 pm
* Full paper and panel submissions due: 	Tuesday, August 10, 2010
(11:59 pm EDT).

Symposium Goals
The Network and Distributed System Security Symposium fosters information
exchange among researchers and practitioners of network and distributed
system security. The target audience includes those interested in practical
aspects of network and distributed system security, with a focus on actual
system design and implementation. A major goal is to encourage and enable
the Internet community to apply, deploy, and advance the state of available
network and distributed systems security technology. The proceedings are
published by the Internet Society (ISOC).

Special emphasis will be made to accept papers in the core theme of network
and distributed systems security. Consequently, papers that cover networking
protocols and distributed systems algorithms are especially invited to be
submitted. Moreover, practical papers in these areas are also very welcome.

How to Submit
Submission instructions are at: http://hotcrp.cylab.cmu.edu/ndss11/

What to Submit
Both technical papers and panel proposals are solicited. Technical papers
must not substantially overlap with papers that have been published or that
are simultaneously submitted to a journal or a conference with proceedings.
All papers from authors perpetrating such "double submissions" will be
immediately rejected from the symposium. The Program Committee reserves the
right to share information with other conference chairs and journal editors
so as to detect such cases.

Technical papers should be written in English, not exceed 20 pages
(including the bibliography and well-marked appendices) using 11-point font,
single column format, and 1-inch margins on 8.5"x11" or A4 paper. Reviewing
is double-blind, and technical papers should thus be properly anonymized to
conceal the authors' identity.

The Program Committee members are not required to read the appendices, so
the paper should be intelligible without them. Technical papers will appear
in the proceedings. Panel proposals should be one page and must describe the
topic, identify the panel chair, explain the panel format, and list three to
four potential panelists. A description of each panel will appear in the
proceedings, and may, at the discretion of the panel chair, include written
position statements from the panelists.

Submissions are solicited in, but not limited to, the following areas:
* Integrating security in Internet protocols: routing, naming, network
* High-availability wired and wireless networks
* Security for Cloud Computing
* Future Internet architecture and design
* Security of Web-based applications and services
* Anti-malware techniques: detection, analysis, and prevention
* Security for future home networks, Internet of Things, body-area networks
* Intrusion prevention, detection, and response
* Combating cyber-crime: anti-phishing, anti-spam, anti-fraud techniques
* Privacy and anonymity technologies
* Security for emerging technologies: sensor networks, wireless/mobile (and
ad hoc) networks, and personal communication systems
* Security for Vehicular Ad-hoc Networks (VANETs)
* Security for peer-to-peer and overlay network systems
* Security for electronic commerce: e.g., payment, barter, EDI,
notarization, timestamping, endorsement, and licensing
* Implementation, deployment and management of network security policies
* Intellectual property protection: protocols, implementations, metering,
watermarking, digital rights management
* Public key infrastructures, key management, certification, and revocation
* Special problems and case studies: e.g., tradeoffs between security and
efficiency, usability, reliability and cost
* Security for collaborative applications: teleconferencing and
* Security for large-scale systems and critical infrastructures (e.g.,
electronic voting, smart grid)
* Applying Trustworthy Computing mechanisms to secure network protocols and
distributed systems

The deadline for full submissions, made electronically in PDF format, is
11:59 pm EDT, August 10, 2010. However, titles and abstracts of papers must
be received by 11:59 pm EDT, August 6, 2010. Each submission will be
acknowledged by email; if acknowledgement is not received within seven days,
contact the Program Chair. Authors and panelists will be notified of
acceptance by October 11, 2010, and given instructions on how to prepare the
camera-ready copy.

NDSS 2011 will feature several best paper awards. There will be at least a
best paper award and a best student paper award. We will seek additional
opportunities to further honor authors of strong papers.
