Call for Papers

Third International Workshop on Security and Forensics in
Communication Systems (SFCS 2015), in conjunction with The Twentieth
IEEE Symposium on Computers and Communications (ISCC 2015)
LARNACA, CYPRUS, July 6, 2015
The ever increasing number of applications, remotely delivered
services, and networked systems have required the need for digital
security. Today, more and more companies are experiencing security
incidents and cybercrimes, by which attackers could generate
fraudulent financial transactions, commit crimes, perform an
industrial espionage, and disrupt the business processes.

The sophistication and the borderless nature of the intrusion
techniques used during a security incident, have triggered the need
for developing efficient incident response plans. In this context,
digital forensics has emerged as a disciplined science allowing to
note and collect evidences left on the compromised system during the
postmortem analysis, and carry out an analysis to: (a) understand what
occurred; (b) determine the set of exploited security weaknesses; (c)
trace attackers to their source; (d) study the attackers trends and
motives; and (e) propose a set of optimal countermeasures to stop and
mitigate the effect of the attacks.
The third edition of the international workshop on Security and
Forensics in Communication Systems (SFCS 2015) will be held in
conjunction with the Twentieth IEEE Symposium on Computers and
Communications (ISCC 2015). It promotes research and innovative ideas
in the realm of security and digital forensics, and provides a
prominent venue for researchers, scientists, engineers and
practitioners to share their thoughts, exchange ideas, and prospect
future and potential axes of collaboration. Papers focusing on any
aspect of the theory and practice of security and digital forensic
science are solicited. A large spectrum of advanced topics are
covered, ranging from anti-forensics detection and recovery, protocols
security and forensic in wireless and mobile communication systems,
multimedia security and forensic content processing, development of
novel theories and techniques of security and forensics analysis and
validation, and forensics in cloud computing and social networks.

The workshop will act as a forum for discussing open issues, and
presenting original and unpublished research results and innovative
ideas in the realm of security and digital forensics. We encourage
contributions describing innovative work in the realm of security and
digital forensics. Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:

- Formal and theoretical techniques of communication security
- Legal and policy issues in security
- Availability, privacy, authentication, anonymity, trust, and access control
- Security aspects in e-services, e-government, e-learning, e-voting,
and m-commerce applications
- Social networks security
- Incident response techniques in network and communication systems
- Mobile security
- Risk analysis and management in communication systems
- Infrastructure protection, and Virtual Private Networks security
- Storage systems protection and forensics
- Physical and Biometric security
- Security in networked and distributed systems
- Economic and management aspects of security and privacy

- Automated reasoning techniques of incidents and evidence analysis
- Evidentiary aspects of digital forensics
- Hypothetical reasoning in forensics and incident response
- Collaborative and distributed digital investigation
- Embedded devices forensics
- Evidence preservation, management, storage and reassembly
- Storage, memory, and file system forensics
- Anti-forensics and anti-anti forensics prevention detection and analysis
- Steganography, watermarking, and forensic techniques in multimedia
content processing
- Lightweight forensic techniques
- Large-scale investigations in large networks and Big Data
- Innovative forensic services
- Data visualization in forensic analysis

- Intrusion Detection, incident response, and evidence handling
- Vulnerability analysis and assessment, and analysis of malware
- Techniques for tracking and trace-back of attacks in systems and networks
- Data hiding, extraction, and recovery technique
- Security and Forensics in distributed, virtual, and cloud environment
- Security and forensics in digital healthcare systems and applications
- Forensic and security techniques in wireless and mobile communication systems
- Development of investigation processes and security procedures
- Security and forensic architectures

Submissions must be written in English describing original work, and
should be no more than 8 pages in the IEEE double column proceedings
format including tables, figures and references. Note that accepted
papers up to 6 pages will be published with no additional charge.
Exceeding pages will be charged an additional fee. Extended versions
of selected best papers will be recommended for publication in a
Special Issue of a prestigious International Journal.

Submitted papers must not substantially overlap papers that have been
published or that are simultaneously submitted to a journal,
conference or workshop. Simultaneous submission of the same work is
not allowed. Authors of accepted papers must guarantee that their
papers will be presented at the workshop.

The Workshop Proceedings will be part of the ISCC 2015 Proceedings and
will be available on IEEE Xplore. If the paper is accepted, at least
one of the authors will be required to register and attend the
symposium to present the paper in order to include the paper in the
conference proceedings. IEEE reserves the right to exclude a paper
from distribution after the conference (e.g. removal from IEEE Xplore)
if the paper is not presented at the conference.
Electronic submission can be done using the EDAS conference management system:
