Call For Papers: The 3rd International Workshop on Security and Privacy in Cloud Computing (ICDCS-SPCC 2012)

The 3rd International Workshop on Security and Privacy in Cloud Computing,
in conjunction with ICDCS 2012, Macau, China, June 18-21, 2012

Cloud computing has recently emerged as a new information technology infrastructure. Cloud computing has unique attributes that raise many security and privacy challenges in areas such as data security, recovery, and privacy, as well as legal issues in areas such as regulatory compliance and auditing. In contrast to traditional enterprise IT solutions, where the IT services are under proper physical, logical and personnel controls, cloud computing moves the application software and databases to the servers in large data centers on the Internet, where the management of the data and services are not fully trustworthy. When clients store their data on the server without themselves possessing a copy of it, how the integrity of the data can be ensured if the server is not fully trustworthy? Will encryption solve the data confidentiality problem of sensitive data? How will encryption affect dynamic data operations such as query, insertion, modification, and deletion? Data in the cloud is typically in a shared environment alongside data from other clients. How the data segregation should be done, while data are stored, transmitted, and processed? Due to the fundamental paradigm shift in cloud computing, many security concerns have to be better understood, unanticipated vulnerabilities identified, and viable solutions to critical threats devised, before the wide deployment of cloud computing techniques can take place.

We are soliciting both full papers that present relatively complete and mature research results and short position papers that report work-in-progress but inspiring and intriguing new ideas. Topics of interests include (but are not limited to) the following subject categories:

Secure cloud architecture

Cloud access control and key management

Identification and privacy in cloud

Remote data integrity protection

Dynamic data operation security

Software and data segregation security

Secure management of virtualized resources

Joint security and privacy aware protocol design

Failure detection and prediction

Secure data management in/across data centers

Availability, recovery and auditing

Secure wireless cloud

Authors are invited to submit either Research Papers or Position Papers or both. Position Papers that define new problems in cloud computing security or provide visions and clarifications of cloud computing security are solicited. Regular Research Papers that present novel research results on security and privacy in cloud computing, and Short Research Papers that describe work-in-progress ideas are also welcome. Research Papers and Position Papers will be reviewed separately.

Time Line and Paper Submission:

Manuscript submission: January 8, 2012

Acceptance notification: February 22, 2012

Final Manuscript due: March 3, 2012

Workshop Date: TBA

All paper submissions should follow the IEEE 8.5″ x 11″ Two-Column Format. Regular Research Paper submission can have 10 pages plus up to 2 over-length pages. If the paper is accepted for publication, an over-length fee will be charged to each of the over-length pages, at $200 per page in the final camera-ready version. Position Papers and Short Research Papers, on the other hand, are allowed to be up to 5 pages.
