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 bordeless 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 prior to the incident occurrence, 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

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original and unpublished research results and innovative ideas in the realm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

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
- 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
- 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
