CALL FOR PARTICIPATION
Workshop on Security and High Performance
As part of The 2008 International Conference High Performance Computing & Simulation (HPCS’08) and in conjunction with The 22nd European Conference on Modelling and Simulation (ECMS 2008)
June 3 - 6, 2008
(Submission Deadline: February 26, 2008)
Providing high performance computing and security is a challenging task. Internet, operating systems and distributed environments currently suffer from poor security support and cannot resist common attacks. Adding security measures typically degrade performance. This workshop addresses relationships between security and high performance systems in three directions. First, it considers how to add security properties (authentication, confidentiality, integrity, non-repudiation, access control) to high performance computing systems. In this case, safety properties can also be addressed, such as availability and fault tolerance for high performance computing systems. Second, it covers how to use high performance computing systems to solve security problems. For instance, a grid computation can break an encryption code, or a cluster can support high performance intrusion detection. More generally, this topic addresses every efficient use of a high performance computing system to improve security. Third, it investigates the tradeoffs between maintaining high performance and achieving security in computing systems and solutions to balance the two objectives. In all these directions, various performance analyses or monitoring techniques can be conducted to show the efficiency of a security infrastructure.
The workshop seeks submissions from academia and industry presenting novel research on all theoretical and practical aspects of computer and network security, as well as case studies and implementation experiences. Papers should have practical relevance to the construction, evaluation, application, or operation of secure systems.
This workshop covers (but is not limited to) the following topics:
Submitted papers must not have been published or simultaneously submitted elsewhere. Submission should include a cover page with authors' names, affiliation addresses, fax numbers, phone numbers, and email addresses. Please, indicate clearly the corresponding author and include up to 6 keywords from the above list and an abstract of no more than 350 words. The full manuscript should be at most 7 pages using the two-column IEEE format. Additional pages will be charged additional fee. Please include page numbers on all submissions to make it easier for reviewers to provide helpful comments. All submissions should be appropriately anonymized (i.e., papers should not contain author names, affiliations, or obvious citations). Please, submit a PDF copy of your full manuscript using the conference web site submission link at: http://www.diiga.univpm.it/~spalazzi/nicosia/submission/ .
Only PDF files will be accepted. Each paper will receive a minimum of three reviews. Authors of accepted papers must guarantee that their papers will be presented at the workshop. Accepted papers will be published by ECMS in the conference proceedings which will be available at the time of the meeting.
If you have any questions about paper submission or the workshop, please contact the organizers.
