9th Workshop on Security and High Performance Computing Systems
(SHPCS 2014)

As part of
The International Conference on High Performance Computing & Simulation
(HPCS 2014)

July 21 - July 25, 2014
The Savoia Hotel Regency
Bologna, Italy


Submissions could be for full papers, short papers, poster papers, or posters

Providing high performance computing and security is a challenging
task.  Internet, operating systems and distributed environments
currently suffer from poor security support and cannot resist common
attacks. Adding security measures typically degrade performance. This
workshop addresses relationships between security and high performance
computing systems in three directions.

First, it considers how to add security properties (authentication,
confidentiality, integrity, non-repudiation, access control) to high
performance computing systems and how they can be formally verified
both at design-time (formal verification) and at run-time (run-time
verification). In this case, safety properties can also be addressed,
such as availability and fault tolerance for high performance computing
systems.  Second, it covers how to use high performance computing
systems to solve security problems.  For instance, a grid computation
can break an encryption code, a cluster can support high performance
intrusion detection or a distributed formal verification system.  More
generally,  this topic addresses every efficient use of a high
performance  computing  systems to improve security.  Third, it
investigates the tradeoffs between maintaining high performance and
achieving security in computing systems and solutions to balance the
two objectives.  In all these directions, various formal analyses, as
well as performance analyses or monitoring techniques can be conducted to
show the efficiency of a security infrastructure.

The workshop  seeks  submissions from  academia and industry presenting
novel research on all theoretical and practical aspects of computer and
network security, as well as case studies and implementation experiences.
Papers should have practical relevance to the construction, evaluation,
application, or operation of secure systems.

You  are  invited  to  submit original and unpublished research works on
above and other topics related to Security in HPC. Submitted papers must
not have been published or simultaneously submitted elsewhere. Submission
should  include a cover page with authors' names,  affiliation addresses,
fax numbers, phone numbers, and email addresses. Please, indicate clearly
the corresponding author and include up to 6 keywords from the above list
of topics and an abstract of no more than 400 words.  The full manuscript
should be at most 7 pages using the two-column IEEE format.    Additional
pages will be charged additional fee.
Short papers  (up to 4 pages), poster papers and posters (please refer to
http://hpcs2014.cisedu.info/home/posters for the submission details) will
also  be  accepted  for submission.   Please include page numbers on all
preliminary  submissions  to make it  easier  for  reviewers  to provide
helpful comments.

Submit a  PDF  copy of your full manuscript using the  Workshop EasyChair
submission link at  https://www.easychair.org/conferences/?conf=shpcs2014

Only PDF files will be accepted, submitted via the link above. Each paper
will receive a minimum of three reviews. Papers will be selected based on
their originality, relevance, technical clarity and presentation.
Submission  implies  the  willingness  of  at least one of the authors to
register and present the paper, if accepted.   Authors of accepted papers
must guarantee that their papers will be registered and presented  at the

Accepted papers will be published in the conference proceedings which will
be made available  at  the  time  of the meeting.   Instructions for final
manuscript  format  and  requirements will  be  posted  on  the  HPCS 2013
Conference web site.    The proceedings is projected to be included in the
IEEE Digital Library and indexed accordingly.

Authors of selected papers will be invited to submit an  extended  version
of their work for a special issue in an ISI Journal (the last special
issue has been published in the Future Generation Computer Systems,
