SIN 2010 conference features contributed as well as invited papers, special sessions, workshops, and tutorials on theory and practice. SIN 2010 will feature the following keynote papers and talks: - Elisa Bertino -- Professor of Computer Science and Research Director of the Center for Education and Research in Information Assurance and Security at Purdue University, USA; - Erdal Cayirci -- Professor, NATO JWC & University of Stavanger, Norway; - Sorin Alexander Huss -- Professor & Vice-President of CASED Research Center for IT Security, Darmstadt, Germany; - Josef Pieprzyk -- Professor, Macquarie U, Australia; - Lyudmila Babenko -- Professor & Director of SFedU Educational and Research Center for Contemporary Security Technologies, Taganrog, Russia; - Alexander Tereshkin -- Principal Researcher, Invisible Things Lab., Rostov-on-Don, Russia. Future SIN Conferences are scheduled to take place in Australia (2011) and Germany (2012). PROPOSALS ================== Papers addressing all aspects of security in information and networks are being sought. Researchers working on the following and related subjects are especially encouraged: realization of security schemes, new algorithms, experimenting with existing approaches; secure information systems, especially distributed control and processing applications, and security in networks; interoperability, service levels and quality issues in such systems; information assurance, security, and public policy. Doctoral students are encouraged to propose papers on ongoing research. Original papers will be considered; 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 that has proceedings. All submitted papers will be reviewed by at least three members of the program committee judging its originality, significance, correctness, presentation and relevance. Authors are also encouraged to propose position papers on practical studies and experiments, critique of existing work, emerging issues, and novel ideas under development. Enterprises and research centers developing, implementing, or using security tools and frameworks are encouraged to propose application / tool demo. Half-day tutorials on fundamental to advanced subjects covering practical implementation aspects of security are welcome. Proposals of special session(s) to be held in the main conference are welcome. Proposals are invited for workshops to be held in conjunction with SIN 2010 Conference. The workshop proposal theme should be closely related to the conference topics. Broad areas of interest in security theory, technology and applications will include, but are not limited to, the following: * Access control and intrusion detection * Autonomous and adaptive security * Cryptographic techniques and key management * Information assurance * Network security and protocols * Security in information systems * Security tools and development platforms * Security ontology, models, protocols & policies * Secure ontology-based systems * Standards, guidelines and certification * Security-aware software engineering * Trust and privacy Following is a non-exhaustive list of subtopics of interest: * Agent & MAS security * Authentication & authorization * Cryptographic hardware design * Cryptography and cryptanalysis (symmetrical and asymmetrical) * Digital signature * Executables security * Information security development processes * Intrusion & fraud detection * Malicious codes * Mobile code and agent security * Privacy * Scripts and languages * Side-channel attacks * Signals & security * Securing storage: SAN/NAS security * Security ontology, models, protocols & policies * Semantics of security * Software security and testing * Spam counter measures * Steganography * Vulnerability analysis * Web security * Wireless security SUBMISSION OF PROPOSALS ======================= Papers must be submitted electronically via the SIN 2010 Submission Site at https://cmt.research.microsoft.com/SIN2010/.
