Call for papers: EuroSec 2009

EuroSec is a workshop associated with the Annual ACM SIGOPS EuroSys conference. The workshop aims to bring together researchers, practitioners,  system administrators, system programmers, and others interested in the latest advances in the security of computer systems and networks. The focus of the workshop is on novel, practical, systems-oriented work.

EuroSec seeks contributions on all aspects of systems security. Topics of interest include (but are not limited to):

  • new attacks, evasion techniques, and defenses
  • operating systems security
  • network/distributed systems security
  • hardware architectures
  • trusted computing and its applications
  • identity management, anonymity
  • small trusted computing bases
  • mobile systems security
  • measuring security
  • malicious code analysis and detection
  • Web security
  • systems-based forensics
  • systems work on fighting spam/phishing

In accordance with the spirit of the EuroSys conference we also seek:

  • Quantified or insightful experience with existing systems
  • Reproduction or refutation of  previous results
  • Negative results
  • Early ideas

You are hereby invited to submit papers of up to 8 single-spaced pages (including figures, tables and references). Submission information:

For convenience, we allow authors to indicate potential conflicts of interest (e.g., to exclude PC members from within their research group).  EuroSec explicitly encourages members of the systems community to explore leading-edge topics and ideas before they are presented at a major conference. All submissions will be reviewed by the Program Committee. Only original, novel work will be considered for publication. Accepted papers will be published in the proceedings of EuroSec in the  ACM Digital Library. EuroSec will be held on the 31st  of March, 2009, in Nuremberg, Germany.
