Call for Papers
As part of
The 2011 International Conference on High Performance Computing & Simulation
In Conjunction With
The International Wireless Communications and Mobile Computing Conference (IWCMC 2011)
July 4 – 8, 2011
(Submission Deadline: February 28, 2011)
SCOPE AND OBJECTIVE
Providing high performance computing and security is a challenging task. Internet, operating systems and distributed environments currently suffer from poor security support and cannot resist common attacks. Adding security measures typically degrade performance. This workshop addresses relationships between security and high performance computing systems in three directions. First, it considers how to add security properties (authentication, confidentiality, integrity, non-repudiation, access control) to high performance computing systems. In this case, safety properties can also be addressed, such as availability and fault tolerance for high performance computing systems. Second, it covers how to use high performance computing systems to solve security problems. For instance, a grid computation can break an encryption code, or a cluster can support high performance intrusion detection. More generally, this topic addresses every efficient use of a high performance computing systems to improve security. Third, it investigates the tradeoffs between maintaining high performance and achieving security in computing systems and solutions to balance the two objectives. In all these directions, various performance analyses or monitoring techniques can be conducted to show the efficiency of a security infrastructure.
The workshop seeks submissions from academia and industry presenting novel research on all theoretical and practical aspects of computer and network security, as well as case studies and implementation experiences. Papers should have practical relevance to the construction, evaluation, application, or operation of secure systems.
The Workshop topics include (but are not limited to) the following:
Submitted papers must not have been published or simultaneously submitted elsewhere. Submission should include a cover page with authors' names, affiliation addresses, fax numbers, phone numbers, and authors email addresses. Please, indicate clearly the corresponding author and include up to 6 keywords from the above list of topics and an abstract of no more than 450 words. The full manuscript should be at most 7 pages using the two-column IEEE format. Additional pages will be charged additional fee. Please include page numbers on all preliminary submissions to make it easier for reviewers to provide helpful comments. Submit a PDF copy of your full manuscript via using the Easychair submission link at: http://www.easychair.org/conferences/?conf=shpcs11".
Only PDF files will be accepted. Each paper will receive a minimum of three reviews. Papers will be selected based on their originality, relevance, technical clarity and presentation. Authors of accepted papers must guarantee that their papers will be registered and presented at the workshop. Accepted papers will be published in the conference proceedings which will be made available at the time of the meeting.
If you have any questions about paper submission or the workshop, please contact the organizers.
International Program Committee:
All submitted papers will be rigorously reviewed by the workshop technical program committee members following similar criteria used in HPCS 2011.
