------------------------------- First Workshop on Hot Topics in Security (HotSec '06) July 31, 2006 Vancouver, B.C., Canada Sponsored by USENIX, the Advanced Computing Systems Association Submissions Deadline: April 17, 2006 http://www.usenix.org/hotsec06/cfpa -------------------------------
The First Workshop on Hot Topics in Security (HotSec '06) will take place Monday, July 31, 2006, in Vancouver, B.C., Canada, and we would like to encourage your submissions.
HotSec is intended as a forum for lively discussion of aggressively innovative and potentially disruptive ideas in all aspects of systems security. Surprising results and thought-provoking ideas will be strongly favored; complete papers with polished results in well-explored research areas are discouraged. Papers will be selected for their potential to stimulate discussion in the workshop.
Position papers are expected to fit into one of the following categories: -- Fundamentally new techniques for and approaches to dealing with current security problems
-- New major problems arising from new technologies that are now being developed or deployed
-- Truly surprising results that cause rethinking of previous approaches
While our goal is to solicit ideas that are not completely worked out, we expect submissions to be supported by some evidence of feasibility or preliminary quantitative results.
Possible topics of interest include but are not limited to: * Secure operation, management, and event response of/for ultra-large-scale systems * Designing secure large-scale systems and networks * Self-organizing and self-protecting systems * Security assurance for non-expert users * Balancing security and privacy/anonymity * Interactions between security technology and public policy
Position paper submissions due are due April 17, 2006.
Submissions guidelines can be found at http://www.usenix.org/hotsec06/ cfpa
We look forward to receiving your submissions.
On behalf of the HotSec '06 Program Committee, Matt Blaze, University of Pennsylvania
P.S. HotSec '06 will be co-located with the 15th USENIX Security Symposium (Security '06), which will take place July 31-August 4, 2006.
