Special Session on:

Security in Parallel, Distributed and Network-Based Computing

Special Session on "Security in Parallel, Distributed and Network-Based Computing" aims to bring together researchers and practitioners involved in multiple disciplines concerning security in distributed systems to exchange ideas and to learn the latest developments in this important field. We will focus on issues related to network and distributed system security, such as authentication, access control, confidentiality, integrity, availability, privacy, dependability and sustainability of distributed systems.
Previously unpublished papers offering novel research contributions to the theoretical and practical aspects of security in distributed systems are solicited for submission.

Submission of Papers:

Prospective authors should submit a full paper not exceeding 8 pages in the Conference proceedings format (double-column, 10pt) to the conference main track or to the Special Sessions through the EasyChair conference submission system with an indication of the main track or the name of the Special Session.


Double-blind review: the paper should not contain authors names and affiliations; in the reference list, references to the authors' own work entries should be substituted with the string "omitted for blind review”.

Publication: All accepted papers will be included in the same proceedings volume, that will be published by Conference Publishing Services (CPS). The Final Paper Preparation and Submission Instructions will be annoiunced after the notification of acceptance. Authors of accepted papers are expected to register and present their papers at the Conference. Conference proceedings will be be submitted for indexing among others, to DBLP, Scopus ScienceDirect, and ISI Web of Knowledge.
