FPS 2017 Call For Papers

The 10th International Symposium on Foundations & Practice of Security (FPS 2017), Nancy, France, 23-24-25 October 2017.

Scope

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.

After the previous meetings held in La Rochelle, Montreal, Grenoble, Toronto, Paris, Clermont-Ferrand and Quebec city, this 10th edition of the FPS symposium will be held in Nancy, France.

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:

Submissions Guidelines

Full papers should be at most 16 pages, including the bibliography and appendices. Short and Position papers should be up to 8 pages. Authors should indicate whether their paper is a “position paper” to differentiate them from regular ones (you mention “Position paper” in the title).

Committee members are not required to read the appendices, so the paper should be intelligible without them.

All submissions must be written in English.

Authors must submit their papers by the deadline indicated below, using the EasyChair web site (using the link) and following the requirements stated there. All papers will be refereed. The submitted contribution should be formatted according to Springer’s LNCS style. Submissions by PhD students as well as surveys and controversial ideas are encouraged. Case studies (successful or not) are also encouraged.

Publication

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.
