NFSP-12 Call For Papers
Cyber space has become an integrated part of human society. At the same time, has also been providing convenient platforms for crimes, such as financial fraud, information phishing, distributed denial of service attacks, and fake message propagation. Especially, the emergence of social networks has introduced significant security and privacy issues to the public. It is a great and new challenge of fighting against criminals in the cyber space. This field involved various disciplines, such as networking, information theory, mathematical modelling, data mining, machine learning, image and voice processing, neural network, pattern recognition, cryptography and forensic criminology.

NFSP-12 will be held at Macau, China, injunction ICDCS 2012, which is one of the top conferences in computer science.

Topics of interest include, but not limited to:

  • Anonymous system and forensics
  • IP traceback
  • Malware detection
  • Botnet identification
  • Networked video system
  • Biometric security and forensics
  • Emotion identification via video
  • Wireless forensics, security and privacy
  • Game theory in forensics, security and privacy
  • Data Mining in forensics, security and privacy
  • DDoS attacks
  • Virus source traceback
  • Malware source traceback
  • Botmaster traceback
  • Distributed systems and forensics
  • System security and forensics
  • Intrusion detection
  • Social networks forensics, security and privacy

  • Multimedia in network security
Submitted papers must not substantially overlap with papers that have been published or that are simultaneously submitted to a journal or a conference with proceedings. All paper submissions should follow the IEEE 8.5" x 11" Two-Column Format. Long 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. Short Papers, on the other hand, are allowed to be up to 5 pages. Papers will be selected based on their originality, significance, relevance, and clarity of presentation assessed by at least three reviewers. Submission of a paper should be regarded as a commitment that, should the paper be accepted, at least one of the authors will register and attend the conference to present the work.
