Recent Advances in Intrusion Detection 2006 
Ninth International Symposium
 "Big Challenges, Big Ideas"
September 20-22, 2006 
University of Hamburg 
"Edmund Siemers Allee 1" 
Hamburg, Germany 

Call for Papers 

This symposium, the ninth in an annual series, brings together leading
researchers and practitioners from academia, government, and industry
to discuss issues and technologies related to intrusion detection and
defense. The Recent Advances in Intrusion Detection (RAID)
International Symposium series is intended to further advances in
intrusion defense by promoting the exchange of ideas in a broad range
of topics.

The theme for RAID 2006 is "Big Challenges, Big Ideas." The intent is
to promote submissions that describe important problems that still
have to be solved in intrusion defense and related areas, as well as
bold, innovative ideas that may shape the future of the field. Papers
submitted as "Big Challenge" or "Big Idea" will be evaluated using
different criteria by a separate committee, placing more importance in
their novelty and value than in completeness or experimental
results. Those selected for inclusion in the program will be printed
in the regular RAID proceedings.

As in previous years, all topics related to intrusion detection,
prevention and defense systems and technologies are within scope,
including but not limited to the following:

" Risk assessment and risk management 
" Intrusion tolerance 
" Deception systems and honeypots 
" Vulnerability analysis and management 
" Vulnerabilities and attacks 
" Intrusion Detection System (IDS) assessment
" IDS survivability and self-protection 
" IDS cooperation and integration 
" IDSs in high-performance and real-time environments 
" Privacy aspects 
" Data mining techniques 
" Visualization techniques 
" Cognitive and Biological approaches 
" Other correlation and analysis techniques 
" Self-learning 
" Case studies 
" Legal and social issues 
" Critical infrastructure protection 

The RAID 2006 Program Committee invites four types of submissions:

Full papers presenting mature research results.  
"Big Challenge" and "Big Idea" papers describing fundamental problems
that have not yet been tackled by intrusion detection research, or
bold ideas for potential research or solutions.

"Big Challenge" papers do not necessarily have to suggest a solution
to the problem they present, but need to present an important problem
in a serious, informed and convincing manner. In a similar fashion,

"Big Idea" papers do not need to present a fully developed piece of
research, and may introduce immature, risky or even controversial
concepts. These papers will be judged by a separate committee
consisting of RAID steering committee members, and will be evaluated
on their novelty and their promise for interesting research. 

Both types of papers accepted for presentation will be included in the
RAID 2006 proceedings published by Springer Verlag in its Lecture
Notes in Computer Science
( series. Papers are
limited to 20 pages when formatted according to the instructions
provided by Springer Verlag
(, and must include an
abstract and a list of keywords.

Panel proposals for presenting and discussing hot topics in the
field of intrusion detection systems. The panel proposals should
include both an outline of the format of the panel and a short
rationale for the panel. Panels that include time for general
discussion and questions/answers between the panelists and the
audience are preferred. 

 Poster sessions describing work in progress. Submissions must consist
of a one-page abstract. Submissions must not substantially duplicate
work that any of the authors has published elsewhere or has submitted
in parallel to any other conference or workshop with proceedings.

Papers must list all authors and their affiliations; in case of
multiple authors, the contact author must be indicated (RAID does not
require anonymized submissions). For accepted papers, it is required
that at least one of the authors attends the conference to present the
paper. The presenting author must be registered by the date of the
camera-ready submission.

All submissions (papers, panel and poster proposals) must be submitted
electronically, through the web submission interface available at Questions
on the submission process may be sent to the program chair.
