Call for Paper Security Workshop
CSP Workshop 2013
The second International Workshop on Cyber Security and Privacy (CSP)
Beijing, China, Oct 10 – 12, 2013
We are living in the ubiquitous cyber networking environments and communicate on the move (COM). The cyber communication intervolves with the Internet, cellular networks, city/community Wi-Fi mesh, air satellite, vehicle networks, body networks, personal networks, enterprise and private networks, and many others. Cyber attacks are currently prevailing in all these networks, user networking devices, and the applications. They are even more complex and malicious in the distributed and mobile environment. Consequently, the detections and preventions of these cyber attacks are unprecedentedly complicated. Eavesdropping, signaling jamming, DoD, sinkholes, Sybil, wormholes, spoofing, flooding, trust poisoning are old security problems but they are still challenging our brain. On the other hands, new malwares are emerging every day and they are even more stealthy and intelligent, and targeting the vulnerabilities of OSs, browsers, and applications. Moreover, new network protocols and applications open new channels for adversaries to take advantage. 
Social networks have become part of the business and personal fabric of the world. The growth and advancement of social media faces risks of attackers targeting users as well as users concerns about personal privacy. Mobile security has become increasingly important when more and more users and businesses use smartphones as communication tools but also as means of planning and organizing their work and private life. Some common security threats on PC platform have jumped to mobile platforms of Android and iOS. For example, Zitmo, a variant of Zeus Trojan has got wide spreading on Android devices in 2012. Clouds bring us new application and various XaaSs along with new vulnerabilities that we have to investigate. Assessing, managing and controlling the risks associated with cloud computing such as identity, privacy, data integrity, and tenant isolation, are critical to the adoption of cloud technologies.
CSP solicits previously unpublished research papers in any aspect of network communication, application, and computer security or privacy in the theory, design, implementation, prototype, analysis, evaluation, testing, verification, or empirical results of secure systems.
Authors of CSP workshop 2013 are promoted to freely enjoy CyberC 2013 and Big Data Summit. Both of the events are co-sponsored by a number of industry giants.

Authors are invited to submit original technical papers to by selecting “CSP 2013”. 
Electronic submission to with title of CSP 2013 Submission is also accepted.
Please DO NOT submit both ways. 
Manuscript Guidelines:
All submitted manuscripts should be prepared as technical papers and may not exceed 8 letter size (8.5 x 11) pages including figures, tables and references using the IEEE format for conference proceedings (print area of 6-1/2 inches (16.51 cm) wide by 8-7/8 inches (22.51 cm) high, two-column format with columns 3-1/16 inches (7.85 cm) wide with a 3/8 inch (0.81 cm) space between them, single-spaced 10-point Times fully justified text). For more information please see The templates in word are:
and that in Latex are:
Submissions not conforming to these guidelines may be returned without review. The submitted manuscripts can be prepared in Word, or Latex using the IEEE templates, but authors should finally submit the manuscript in PDF format and make sure that the file will print on a printer that uses letter size (8.5 x 11) paper. The official language of the meeting is English.
Paper Acceptance
Manuscripts should present the current research in the areas identified in the call for papers. All submitted manuscripts will be reviewed by experts in the fields and will be judged from the aspects of problem significance, contributions, originality, correctness, technical strength, quality of presentation, and relevance to the conference attendees. Papers will be accepted with Regular Papers and Short Papers with maximal 8 pages and 4 pages in the final version respectively.    
All accepted and presented papers, including the workshops’ papers, will be published by IEEE Computer Society's Conference Publishing Services (CPS) and will be submitted to the IEEE Xplore database. They will further arranged for indexing through IEE INSPEC, EI (Compendex), and Thomson ISI. Authors of accepted papers, or at least one of them, should register and present their work at the conference, otherwise their papers will be removed from the digital libraries of IEEE Xplore and EI after the conference.
