The organizers solicit original contributions addressing the issues facing the
anti-malware community:
(1) Case studies based on recent malware events, describing large-scale
responses strategies used, tools and techniques employed, quantitative
measurements used and their interpretation,...
(2) Traditional research contributions of a theoretical nature (including
modeling, simulations,...) or of a more practical nature (including in-vitro
laboratory experiments, tool and technique development,...)

Contributions of both types, case studies and research, addressing one of
following non-exclusive list of topics are equally welcome:

- Infection vectors:                  - Malware detection
    worms, virus, spam               - Vulnerability prevention
- Information theft:                  - Malware economy

- Botnets: analysis + economics       - Human aspects: propagation
- Collection methodologies:           - Forensics and law enforcement
    Honeypots, Honeyclients          - Malware analysis and
- Case studies:                            reverse-engineering
    analysis and measurements        - Arms race:
- National and international laws          malware vs. anti-malware

SUBMISSION
Submitted manuscripts must have at least 10-point font size, and should not
exceed 8 single-spaced pages in length, including the abstract, figures, and
references, formatted in two columns. Only original papers, unpublished or
submitted for publication, can be submitted. All submissions will be reviewed
