CALL FOR PAPERS

********************************************************************************
2nd IEEE Workshop on Security and Privacy in the Cloud (IEEE SPC 2016)
October 19, 2016, Philadelphia, PA, USA

********************************************************************************

Cloud computing is today the reference paradigm for large-scale data
storage and processing due to the convenient and efficient network
access to configurable resources that can be easily adjusted according
to the users’ needs. Although the benefits of cloud computing are
tremendous, security and privacy concerns have still a detrimental
impact on the adoption and acceptability of cloud services. In fact,
users as well as companies that rely on cloud storage and computation
services lose the direct control over the systems managing their data
and applications, thus putting the confidentiality, integrity and
availability of the data at risk. The goal of this workshop is to
bring together researchers and practitioners who are interested in
discussing the security, privacy, and data protection issues emerging
in cloud scenarios, and possible solutions to them.

The workshop seeks submissions from academia, industry, and government
presenting novel research, as well as experimental studies, on all
theoretical and practical aspects of security, privacy, and data
protection in cloud scenarios.


Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:

* Anonymity in cloud scenarios
* Applied cryptography in cloud scenarios
* Cloud-based biometric systems
* Data and application security
* Data and system integrity
* Data availability in outsourcing scenarios
* Data protection
* Efficient access to outsourced data
* Key management in cloud scenarios
* Privacy
* Privacy of accesses
* Secure computation over encrypted data
* Security and trust metrics
* Security and privacy in crowdsourcing
* Security and privacy in multi-clouds and federated clouds
* Security and privacy in data outsourcing
* Security and privacy in the Internet of Things
* Security and privacy of big data
* Security and privacy of distributed computations
* Security and privacy of fog computing
* Security and privacy policies
* Selective information sharing
* Threats, vulnerabilities, and risk management


PAPER SUBMISSIONS
Submitted papers must not substantially overlap papers that have been
published or that are simultaneously submitted to a journal or a
conference with proceedings. Submissions should be at most 9 pages in
the IEEE 8,5”x11” two-column format
https://www.ieee.org/conferences_events/conferences/publishing/templates.html

Submissions must not be anonymized. The workshop will also consider
short submissions of up to 4 pages for results that are preliminary or
that simply require few pages.

Papers should be submitted for review through EDAS. Only PDF files
will be accepted. Submissions not meeting these guidelines risk
rejection without consideration of their merits. Papers must be
received by the deadline of July 3, 2016 (11:59 p.m. American Samoa
time). Authors of accepted papers must guarantee that their papers
will be presented at the workshop.

The electronic submission site is available at: https://edas.info/N22626

Accepted and presented papers will be included in the IEEE CNS 2016
conference proceedings and also in IEEE Xplore.
