Call for Papers

While the attack systems have become more easy-to-use, sophisticated, and powerful, interest has greatly increased in the field of building more effective, intelligent, adaptive, active and high performance defense systems which are distributed and networked. We will focus our program on issues related to Network and System Security, such as authentication, access control, availability, integrity, privacy, confidentiality, dependability and sustainability of computer networks and systems. The aim of this conference is to provide a leading edge forum to foster interaction between researchers and developers with the network and system security communities, and to give attendees an opportunity to interact with experts in academia, industry and governments.

NSS 2010 will be in technical co-sponsorship with the IEEE and the IEEE Computer Society Technical Committee on Scalable Computing. The publication will be the IEEE Computer Society Proceedings (EI, ISTP, and INSPEC indexed) *. Selected best papers will be published in The Computer Journal (Oxford), Computers & Security (Elsevier), and Concurrency and Computation: Practice & Experience(Wiley). All journals are SCI and EI indexed.
