FPS 2020 Call For Papers
The 13th International Symposium on Foundations & Practice of Security, Montreal, Canada, 1-2-3 December 2020.
Protecting the communication and data infrastructure of an increasingly inter-connected world has become vital to the normal functioning of all aspects of our world. Security has emerged as an important scientific discipline whose many multifaceted complexities deserve the attention and synergy of the mathematical, computer science and engineering communities.
The Foundations & Practice of Security (FPS) Symposium was initiated in 2008, following the Canada-France Meeting on Security held at the Simon Fraser University, Vancouver, in December 06-08, 2007. Since then, the FPS Symposium has been held annually, alternating Canadian and French locations.
After the previous meetings held in Grenoble, Toronto, Paris, Montréal, La Rochelle, Montréal, Clermont-Ferrand, Quebec City, Nancy, Montréal and Toulouse, this 13th edition of the FPS symposium will be held again in Montréal, Canada.
The aim of FPS is to discuss and exchange theoretical and practical ideas that address security issues in inter-connected systems. It aims to provide scientific presentations as well as to establish links, promote scientific collaboration, joint research programs, and student exchanges between institutions involved in this important and fast moving research field.
We also invite papers from researchers and practitioners working in security, privacy, trustworthy data systems and related areas to submit their original papers. The main topics, but not limited to, include:
Access control languages
Blockchain-based systems: Strengths, Weaknesses and Limitations
Code reverse engineering and vulnerability exploitation
Computer and network security
Cryptography & cryptanalysis
Data mining & watermarking
Distributed security protocols & policies
Formal foundations in information or operational security
Information theoretic security
Malware, botnet and advanced persistent threats
Privacy & sensitive data management
Policy-based distributed information systems
Policy-based security architectures
Security & privacy in digital currencies
Security & privacy in social networks
Security in sensor networks and RFIDs
Security of big-data
Security of cloud computing, grid computing
Security of distributed embedded middleware
Security of P2P systems
Security of service oriented architectures
Security management and security policies
Side channel & physical attacks
Threat analysis and trust management
Supply Chain Security
As in previous editions, proceedings will be published by Springer-Verlag in the Lecture Notes in Computer Science (LNCS) series. At least one author of each accepted paper must register to the symposium, by the date indicated by the organizers, and present the paper.
