[DMANET] [Last day! (firm)] 4th SETOP 2011, Co-located with ESORICS 2011, Springer LNCS proceedings


4th International Workshop on Autonomous and Spontaneous Security

**Paper Submission [Extended] Deadline: June 24 [FIRM]**

15 -- 16 September, 2011, Leuven, Belgium,
Co-located with ESORICS 2011, Springer LNCS Proceedings


Security and reliability have become a major concern for service
oriented applications as well as for communications systems and
networks. With the need for evolution, if not revolution, of current
network architectures and the Internet, autonomous and spontaneous
management will be a key feature of future networks and information
systems. In this context, security is an essential property. It must
be thought at the early stage of conception of these systems and
designed to be also autonomous and spontaneous.

Future networks and systems must be able to automatically configure
themselves with respect to their security policies. The security
policy specification must be dynamic and adapt itself to the changing
environment. Those networks and systems should interoperate securely
when their respective security policies are heterogeneous and possibly
conflicting. They must be able to autonomously evaluate the impact of
an intrusion in order to spontaneously select the appropriate and
relevant response when a given intrusion is detected. Autonomous and
spontaneous security is a major requirement of future networks and
systems. Of course, it is crucial to address this issue in different
wireless and mobile technologies available today such as RFID, Wifi,
Wimax, 3G, etc. Other technologies such as ad hoc and sensor networks,
which introduce new type of services, also share similar requirements
for an autonomous and spontaneous management of security.

The SETOP Workshop seeks submissions that present research results on
all aspects related to spontaneous and autonomous security.
Submissions by PhD students are encouraged. Topics of interest
include, but are not limited to the following:

* Security policy deployment
* Self evaluation of risk and impact
* Distributed intrusion detection
* Autonomous and spontaneous response
* Trust establishment
* Lightweight cryptography
* Selfish behavior and collaboration enforcement
* Security in autonomous networks
* Security in ad hoc networks
* Security in sensor/RFID networks
* Security of Next Generation Networks
* Security in Cloud Computing
* Security of Service Oriented Architecture
* Security of opportunistic networks
* Privacy policies
* Privacy-aware environments
* Privacy in self-organized networks
* Secure localization
* Context aware and ubiquitous computing
* Secure interoperability and negotiation
* Self-organization in secure routing
* Identity management
* Modeling and validation of security

Submission Guidelines:

Papers should be at most 15 pages (using 11-point font), excluding the
bibliography and well-marked appendices. Committee members are not
required to read the appendices, so the paper should be intelligible
without them. All submissions must be written in English. All papers
will be refereed. Accepted papers should be presented at the Workshop.
At least one author of each accepted paper must register to the
workshop, by the early date indicated by the organizers, and present
the paper.

Authors must submit their papers by the deadline indicated below,
using the EasyChair web site (use the link and following the
requirements stated there.

Proceedings will be published by Springer in the Lecture Notes in
Computer Science (LNCS) series. The submitted paper (in PDF format)
should follow the template indicated by Springer (see It must start with a
title, a short abstract, and a list of keywords.

It is expected that extended and revised version of the best papers from
the workshop will be considered for international journal special issues.

Submissions by PhD students as well as controversial ideas are
encouraged. Case studies (successful or not) are also encouraged.

Important dates:

* Papers [Extended] Deadline: June 24, 2011 [FIRM]
* Acceptance Notification: July 28, 2011
* Camera Ready: August 15, 2011
* Workshop Dates: 15 - 16 September, 2011
* Contributions to be spread via DMANET are submitted to
* Replies to a message carried on DMANET should NOT be
* addressed to DMANET but to the original sender. The
* original sender, however, is invited to prepare an
* update of the replies received and to communicate it
* via DMANET.
