[PVS] Final CFP: The 4th IEEE International Workshop on Security ine-Science and e-Research (ISSR 2012)

Final CFP: The 4th IEEE International Workshop on Security
in e-Science and e-Research (ISSR 2012)
Liverpool, United Kingdom, 25-27 June 2012

In Conjunction with

The 11th IEEE International Conference on Trust, Security and Privacy
in Computing and Communications (IEEE TrustCom 2012),
Liverpool, UK, 25-27 June, 2012


Special Issues for Distinguished Papers from IEEE ISSR-12

(1) IEEE Transactions on Parallel and Distributed Systems

(2) Concurrency and Computation: Practice and Experience - Wiley

(3) Journal of Security and Communication Networks - Wiley



E-Science and e-Research, through development of Grid computing and Cloud computing based e-Infrastructures, can be used to support a wide range of research disciplines and inter-disciplinary research. In recent years, the influence of e-Science and e-Research has grown considerably and their scope of applications now covers many research domains, from science and engineering disciplines such as physical, biological, clinical sciences and so on, through to the arts and humanities and social sciences. Supporting e-Science and e-Research often places numerous demands on capabilities associated with Grid and Cloud infrastructures. One key challenge is with regard to security. Security technologies must support a variety of user requirements and provider requirements such as authentication, authorization, trust, privacy, policy management, and information assurance, all in a user and provider friendly framework. Many e-Science and e-Research projects have developed distinctive security analyses, requirements, and technical solutions for a variety of applications.

Following the success of ISSR-11 (held in Changsha, China, in conjunction with IEEE TrustCom-11), ISSR-10 (held in Taipei, Taiwan, in conjunction with IEEE ISPA-10) and ISSR-09 (held in Chengdu, China, in conjunction with IEEE ISPA-09), the workshop intends to provide a forum for researchers, developers and users working on security issues associated with e-Science and e-Research to exchange ideas and share experiences. The workshop has emphasis on establishing a state-of-the-art for security in e-Science and e-Research, identifying challenges and discussing solutions for successfully enabling security for e-Science and e-Research. The workshop program will be a blend of presentations of research papers, and discussions about the current status, emergent areas, and trends on security-related issues in e-Science and e-Research.

We solicit original papers reporting a wide spectrum of topics related to security in e-Science and e-Research. Topics of interest include but are not limited to:

Eliciting security requirements for e-Science & e-Research applications as well as Grid & Cloud infrastructures  
Analysis of security challenges, threats, risk and issues in e-Science & e-Research as well as Grid & Cloud infrastructures 
Security architectures, frameworks, and infrastructures for Grids & Clouds and applications on e-Science & e-Research
Models and techniques for authentication and identity management in Grid & Cloud infrastructures
Models and techniques for authorization and access control in Grid & Cloud infrastructures
Trust model and management for Grid & Cloud infrastructures
Privacy mechanisms and management for Grid & Cloud infrastructures
Policy models and policy management in Grid & Cloud infrastructures
Information assurance for e-Science & e-Research applications
Security issues and solutions for data providers and data users in Grid & Cloud infrastructures
Model and frameworks for security-driven workflows in Grid & Cloud infrastructures
Network security mechanisms for Grids & Clouds contexts
Security for Grid & Cloud programming models
Energy/cost/efficiency of security in Grids & Clouds
Secure Grid & Cloud resource virtualization mechanisms
Secure Grid & Cloud computation outsourcing
Supporting end-end security solutions for e-Science & e-Research
User-driven security models for e-Science & e-Research
Software engineering best practice in the development of Grid & Cloud security infrastructures
Experiences and case studies on the practical applications of security models and solutions in e-Science & e-Research

Submission and Publication Instruction

Prospective authors are invited to submit manuscripts reporting original unpublished research and recent developments in the topics related to the workshop. The length of the papers should not exceed 6 pages + 2 pages for overlength charges (IEEE Computer Society Proceedings Manuscripts style: two columns, single-spaced, 10-point font), including figures and references. You can confirm the IEEE Computer Society Author Guidelines at the following Web page: http://www.computer.org/portal/web/cscps/formatting

Once accepted, the paper will be included into the IEEE conference proceedings published by IEEE Computer Society Press (indexed by EI). Distinguished papers, after further revisions, will be published in special issues indexed by SCI and EI (IEEE Transactions on Parallel and Distributed Systems; Concurrency and Computation: Practice and Experience - Wiley; Journal of Security and Communication Networks - Wiley). Submitting a paper to the symposium means that, if the paper is accepted, at least one author should attend the symposium and present the paper.
