Call for papers: EC2ND 2009

European Conference on Computer Network Defense

The 5th European Conference on Computer Network Defence will take place in November 2009 at the Politecnico di Milano technical university in Milano, Italy.

The theme of the conference is the protection of computer networks. The conference will draw participants from academia and industry in Europe and beyond to discuss hot topics in applied network and systems security.

EC2ND invites submissions presenting novel ideas at an early stage with the intention to act as a discussion forum and feedback channel for promising, innovative security research. While our goal is to solicit ideas that are not completely worked out, and might have challenging and interesting open questions, we expect submissions to be supported by some evidence of feasibility or preliminary quantitative results.

Topics include but are not limited to:

  • Intrusion Detection
  • Denial-of-Service
  • Privacy Protection
  • Security Policy
  • Peer-to-Peer and Grid Security
  • Network Monitoring
  • Web Security
  • Vulnerability Management and Tracking
  • Network Forensics
  • Wireless and Mobile Security
  • Cryptography
  • Network Discovery and Mapping
  • Incident Response and Management
  • Malicious Software
  • Web Services Security
  • Legal and Ethical Issues

The conference will be technically co-sponsored by the IEEE ComputerSociety – Italy Chapter .

Submitting a Paper

You are hereby invited to submit papers up to 6-8 pages, 8.5″ x 11″, two-column format. We particularly encourage position papers on preliminary work that shows promise, rather than mature and well-polished papers. Surprising results and thought-provoking ideas will be strongly favored.
