Call for Papers (One week before paper submission deadline) The 2009 IEEE International Workshop on Security in e-Science and e-Research (ISSR-2009), Chengdu and Jiuzhai Vally, China, 10-12 August 2009
------------ Introduction ------------ E-Science and e-Research can, through development of Grids and e-Infrastructures 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 application 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 e-Infrastructures. One key challenge is with regard to security. Security technologies must support a variety of user and provider requirements such as authentication, authorization, trust, privacy,policy management, 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.This 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 invited talks, presentations of research papers, and discussions about the current status, emergent areas, and trends on security-related issues in e-Science and e-Research.
------------------ Topics of interest ------------------ 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 and e-Research applications * Analysis of security challenges, threats, risk and issues in e-Science and e-Research * Security architectures, frameworks, and infrastructures for e-Science and e-Research * Models and techniques for authentication and identity management in e-Science and e-Research * Models and techniques for authorization and access control in e-Science and e-Research * Trust model and management for e-Science and e-Research * Privacy mechanisms and management for e-Science and e-Research * Policy models and policy management in e-Science and e-Research * Information assurance for e-Science and e-Research applications * Security issues and solutions for data providers and data users * Model and frameworks for security-driven workflows * Supporting end-end security solutions for e-Science and e-Research * User-driven security models for e-Science and e-Research * Software engineering best practice in the development of security software * We also welcome experiences, case studies on the practical application of security models and solutions in e-Science and e-Research
----------- Submissions ----------- The format of submitted papers should follow the guidelines for IEEE conference proceedings format (8.5" x 11", Two-Column). Each accepted paper is limited to 6 pages (or 8 pages with over length charge). Paper should be submitted in PDF format via email to firstname.lastname@example.org (Cc: wei DOT jie AT manchester DOT ac DOT uk).
The proceedings of this workshop will be published by IEEE Computer Society Press (Indexed by EI). Authors of selected papers will be invited to submit extended versions to high quality journals to be announced.
Submitting a paper to the workshop means that if the paper is accepted, at least one author should attend the workshop to present the paper. For no-show authors, their papers will be removed from the digital library after the conference and their affiliations will receive a notification.
