The iNetSec workshop will be co-located with the main conference IFIP SEC 2020 in Maribor, Slovenia and is organized in conjunction with the IFIP WG 11.4 Network Security. The schedule of this workshop will be included in the SEC 2020 conference program.
In the past decade, mobile networks have fundamentally influenced the ways in which information is exchanged and handled. Pervasive electronic devices make our everyday life easier, e.g., by helping us to connect with other people while being mobile, to use services available online, or to pay and use tolls and tickets. Many of the components employed routinely manage and distribute large amounts of data for different purposes. As these processes involve sensitive information, protecting information and the network with suitable security measures is more important than ever. The current discussion about Huawei, China and 5G Networks shows that we must focus on trust and controllability of network components. Therefore, we have extended our topics with “Reliable Secure Network Systems”. Submissions in this area are very welcome.
The objective of this one-day workshop is to bring together researchers in the field of network security to discuss the open problems and future research directions.
The iNetSec workshop seeks to bring together researchers to discuss open research problems in network security. We think that workshop discussions can contribute additional insights to the research community and should be an integral part of the paper publication process. Therefore, we encourage authors to submit abstracts of open problems that can be presented and discussed at the workshop. Authors of accepted abstracts will receive the opportunity to integrate suggestions induced by the discussions in their full papers after the workshop.
To this end, we solicit papers describing interesting unsolved problems and issues in (a certain area of) network security. Example areas include:
We ask authors to submit 1-2 page abstracts. They must be submitted electronically by March 01, 2020 (AoE), using the Microsoft CMT system. Late submissions and non-electronic submissions will not be considered. Notification of acceptance or rejection based on the abstracts will be sent to authors by March 20, 2020.
Authors of accepted abstracts must guarantee that they will submit a full paper by May 15, 2020 via Microsoft CMT and that their paper will be presented at the workshop. Papers must not substantially overlap with papers that have been published or that are simultaneously submitted to a journal or a conference. Authors should consult Springer’s authors’ guidelines and use their proceedings templates, either for LaTeX or for Word, for the preparation of their papers. Springer’s proceedings LaTeX templates are also available in Overleaf. Springer encourages authors to include their ORCIDs in their papers. In addition, the corresponding author of each paper, acting on behalf of all of the authors of that paper, must complete and sign a Consent-to-Publish form. The corresponding author signing the copyright form should match the corresponding author marked on the paper. Once the files have been sent to Springer, changes relating to the authorship of the papers cannot be made.
Copies of the papers will be available at the workshop. Authors will be able to revise their papers after the workshop for the final version. These final papers will be published as post-proceedings by Springer in the series of Lecture Notes in Computer Science (LNCS).
