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

Final call and *extended deadline* for papers/extended abstracts

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

The deadline for submissions of papers/extended abstracts for MEGA 2015
has been extended to

12 December 2014

Effective Methods in Algebraic Geometry
University of Trento, Department of Mathematics,
Povo (Trento) Italy
June 15-19, 2015

This is the 25th anniversary of MEGA. During the conference we will
celebrate this anniversary with a special afternoon programme at a small
lake surrounded by the hills near Trento.

Further information: http://mega2015.science.unitn.it/
Submission page: https://easychair.org/conferences/?conf=mega2015

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

MEGA is the acronym for Effective Methods in Algebraic Geometry (and
its equivalent in many other languages). This series of biennial
international conferences, with a tradition dating back to 1990, is
devoted to computational and application aspects of Algebraic Geometry
and related topics.

The conference will comprise invited talks, regular contributed talks,
presentations of computations, and a poster session; the latter three
are subject to a competitive submission process.

Invited speakers:

Alessandra Bernardi (University of Turin, Italy)
Petter Brändén (KTH Royal Institute of Technology, Sweden)
Elisa Gorla (University of Neuchâtel, Switzerland)
Hans-Christian Graf von Bothmer (University Göttingen, Germany)
Anders Jensen (Aarhus University, Denmark)
Michael Joswig (Technical University of Berlin, Germany)
Frank Sottile (Texas A&M University, USA)
Caroline Uhler (Institute of Science and Technology, Austria)

(Carlos Beltran has had to cancel).

Special invited talk during the special afternoon:

Daniel Lazard (Paris 6) on the history of MEGA and related groups

Important dates:

Deadline for submissions of papers/extended abstracts:
12 December 2014
Notification of acceptance of papers/extended abstracts:
15 February 2015

Deadline for submission of posters/computation presentatations:
15 March 2015
Notification of acceptence of posters/computation presentations:
15 April 2015

Deadline for registration and fee payment: TBD

Submissions: Submissions should contain recent original research
relevant to effective methods in algebraic geometry (in a broad sense),
including their foundations, analysis, complexity, computational
aspects, practical issues and applications. On this occasion we
especially encourage submissions related to finite fields, cryptography
and coding theory, as we would like to have a session specifically
devoted to these topics.

There are three types of submissions, distributed over the two deadlines
above:

- Regular papers: for these, authors can choose to submit
either an extended abstract of at least four pages (not counting
bibliography) that should contain full results, an outline of the proofs
and all of the main ideas; or else a full paper with complete proofs.

- Computation presentations: these can concern new software packages,
but also experiments with (combinations) existing software that have
led to new computational approaches to mathematical proofs/applications
relevant to MEGA. Submission should be in the form of a short paper
describing the software or computations.

- Posters: to be printed on A1, the posters will be exhibited
during most of the conference, and during a poster session the authors
will have the opportunity to discuss their work with the conference
participants.

All submissions should clearly state the contributions and achievements,
with sufficient detail to understand their significance.

Submissions may contain material already submitted elsewhere, but this
fact has to be stated explicitly in the abstract. Acceptance of such
submissions depends on their special significance for the community.

Papers are to be submitted online through the Easy Chair interface,
available at
https://easychair.org/conferences/?conf=mega2015

Acceptance of a submitted contribution means acceptance for oral or
poster presentation only. A special issue of a journal is planned to
which authors of accepted original papers will be invited to submit the
full version after the conference. Only original research contributions
will be considered for publication in the journal special issue.

Executive committee: Jan Draisma (Eindhoven, Netherlands, Chair),
Willem de Graaf (Trento, Italy), Julia Hartmann (Aachen, Germany),
Monique Laurent (Amsterdam, Netherlands), Anton Leykin (Atlanta, GA,
USA), Teo Mora (Genova, Italy), Giorgio Ottaviani (Firenze, Italy),
Tomas Recio (Santander, Spain), Fabrice Rouillier (Paris, France),
Josef Schicho (Linz, Austria)

== Two Tracks: Conference and Workshop ==
As the goal of ICITS is to bring together researchers on all aspects of information-theoretic security,
it consists of two tracks with different types of contributed presentations:

- Conference Track (with proceedings): Submissions to this track must be original papers that have not
previously appeared in published form. Accepted papers will be presented at the conference and will
appear in the conference proceedings, which will be published by Springer in the LNCS series.

- Workshop Track (no proceedings): To encourage presentation of work from a variety of fields (especially
those where conference publication is unusual or makes journal publication difficult), the committee also
solicits "workshop track" papers. Accepted papers will be presented orally at the conference but will not
appear in the proceedings. Submissions to this track that have previously appeared (or are currently
submitted elsewhere) are acceptable, as long as they first appeared after January 1, 2014. Papers that
describe work in progress are also welcome. We note that the same standards of quality will apply to
conference and workshop papers.

- Mark Zhandry (Stanford University, USA)


== Instruction for Authors ==
- Conference Track: Submissions must not substantially duplicate work published elsewhere or submitted in
parallel to a journal or any other conference/workshop that has proceedings. The submission must be
anonymous, with no author names, affiliations, or obvious references. The length of the submission must be
at most 12 pages excluding bibliography and appendices. The text must be in a single column format, use at
least 11- point fonts, and have reasonable margins. The submission should begin with a title and a short
abstract. The introduction should summarize the contributions of the paper at a level appropriate for a
non-specialist reader. Committee members are not required to read appendices; the paper should be
intelligible without them. Submissions should preferably be in PDF format. Instructions on how to submit
will be provided on the web site.

- Workshop Track: Authors may submit a paper published elsewhere or an original manuscript. As with the
conference track, submissions should begin with a title and short abstract followed by an introduction that
summarizes the contributions at a level appropriate for a non-specialist reader. Information about
previous publication, if any, should be indicated on the first page of the submission. Beyond these
guidelines no specific format is required. In particular, (a) papers previously published elsewhere may be
submitted in their published form provided bibliographic information is clearly indicated; (b) short
summaries of works available in other venues or online (on the arXiv or IACR eprint) are acceptable;
(c) original submissions may be left anonymous at the discretion of the authors. (Previously published
submissions cannot be anonymous.)

Announcement and Call for Survey Lectures

AutoMathA 2015
Jewels of Automata: from Mathematics to Applications

Leipzig, May 6--9, 2015
www.automatha.uni-leipzig.de


The conference AutoMathA 2015 will survey a wide picture of
research in automata theory and related mathematical fields.
It will consist of 24 invited lectures which will describe
significant progress over the past years, and will be a
meeting point for both young and senior researchers to learn
and to discuss about automata theory, its connections with
mathematics and its applications.

This event is a follow-up of the multidisciplinary programme
Automata: from Mathematics to Applications (AutoMathA, 2005--2010)
of the European Science Foundation and of its final conference
"Highlights of AutoMathA" in Vienna 2010.

Presently, there are 10 open slots, and applications
for surveys are invited.

All lectures will have the same length of about 50 minutes
and will deal with significant progress over the past years.
They will serve as surveys on such recent work, not necessarily
focusing only on work of the speaker. There will be only
informal proceedings (with slides or texts); so the results
presented are usually already published (or accepted) elsewhere.

Submissions can be short abstracts with references,
outlines of talks or pointers to papers to be covered
in a lecture.

Please send your submission to:
automatha@informatik.uni-leipzig.de

Deadline for submissions: Jan 31, 2015

Manuscript submission: extended to November 21, 2014

========================================================================

*Call for Papers*

Computer Communications Journal, Elsevier
(Current Impact Factor: 1.352)

Special Issue on:
Security and Privacy in Unified Communications: Challenges and Solutions

Direct Link:
http://www.journals.elsevier.com/computer-communications/call-for-papers/special-issue-on-security-and-privacy-in-unified-communicati/

========================================================================

Unified Communications (UC) merge different communication
technologies, types of products, and services, from various
manufacturers, operators, and countries, following diverse policies
and standards. Specifically, in the context of UC, a range of
communication tools are integrated in a way that both corporations and
individuals are able to manage all their communications in one entity
instead of doing it disjointly. It is therefore said that UC bridges
the opening between the various computer related communication
technologies and Voice over IP (VoIP). However, this high level of
heterogeneity expands the risks related to security and privacy that
stakeholders should deal with. To eliminate or even prevent the
increasing threats to end-users and operators, it is important to
explore this growing and timely research topic.
This feature topic will benefit the research community towards
identifying challenges and disseminating the latest methodologies and
solutions to UC security and privacy issues. Its objective is to
publish high-quality articles presenting open issues, algorithms,
protocols, policies, frameworks, standards, and solutions for UC
related to security and privacy. Only technical papers describing
previously unpublished, original, state-of-the-art research, and not
currently under review by a conference or a journal will be
considered. Reviews and case studies which address state-of-art
research and state-of-practice industry experiences are also welcomed.
We solicit papers in a variety of topics related to unified
communications security and privacy, including, but not limited to:

- Authorization and access control for UC services
- Denial of service prevention schemes for UC
- Reliability and availability issues on UC
- Penetration testing, intrusion detection and prevention
- End-to-end security solutions
- Cryptographic protocols for UC
- Voice security
- Signaling security and privacy
- Multimedia application security and privacy analysis
- Multimedia communication platforms vulnerabilities and attacks
- Security and privacy in mobile communication services
- Smartphone multimedia apps security and privacy
- Social networking security and privacy
- Testbed and case studies for secure and private UC services
- Trust establishment in UC
- IP Multimedia Subsystem (IMS) security
- Privacy and identity management
- Privacy enhancing technologies for UC
- Privacy models for UC
- Security and privacy assessment for UC
- Security policies
- Auditing, verification, and validation of UC services
- Risk analysis and management
- Cyber-security issues affecting UC
- Protection of UC as a Critical Information Infrastructure
- VoIP peering security issues

All received submissions will be sent out for peer review by at least
two experts in the field and evaluated with respect to relevance to
the special issue, level of innovation, depth of contributions, and
quality of presentation. Guest editors will make an initial
determination of the suitability and scope of all submissions. Papers
that either lack originality, clarity in presentation or fall outside
the scope of the special issue will not be sent for review and the
authors will be promptly informed in such cases. Submitted papers must
not be under consideration by any other journal or publication.


Schedule

Manuscript submission deadline (extended): November 21, 2014
Pre-notification (first round): January 30, 2015
Final-notification (second round): April 3, 2015
Publication of special issue: 2015 (Tentative)
