Dear all, 

this is a reminder that the call for papers for the 
          First IEEE International Information Assurance Workshop
ends soon.

Information is available under the URL:


                              Call for Papers
                         First IEEE International
                      Information Assurance Workshop
                 March 24th, 2003 --- Darmstadt, Germany

                             Sponsored by the
         IEEE Computer Society Task Force on Information Assurance
                          in cooperation with the
        ACM Special Interest Group on Security, Audit, and Control


Information Assurance (IA) represents a relatively new research area which
as yet lacks formal definition and is dependent on many underlying
Information Technology areas to succeed. At present, many efforts to effect
IA focus narrowly on one or another of these underlying technologies. The
need for a comprehensive, systems approach to IA is required if IA is to
succeed. This workshop serves as an open forum to discuss IA perspectives
on the underlying technologies, to review the definition of IA, and to
promote development of IA technology and standards impacting real-world
needs such as in Critical Infrastructure Protection (CIP).


The IEEE Task Force on Information Assurance is sponsoring a workshop on
information assurance in cooperation with the ACM SIGSAC on research and
experience in information assurance. The workshop seeks submissions from
academia and industry presenting novel research on all theoretical and
practical aspects of IA; possible topics include, but are not limited to
the following:

  - Information Warfare and Operations 
  - Network Security 
  - Operating System Security 
  - Storage Security 
  - Intrusion Detection, Prediction, and Countermeasures 
  - Insider Attack Countermeasures 
  - Information Sharing in Coalition Settings 
  - Security Models 
  - Survivability and Resilient Systems 
  - Formal Methods for Security 
  - CCITSE Experience and Methodology 
  - IA Standardization Approaches 
  - Specification, Design, Development, and Deployment of IA Mechanisms 

Papers with a systems perspective are especially welcome. In addition to
the dissemination of new research, another goal of the workshop is to bring
together researchers and practicioners from both governmental and civilian
areas. While observers are welcome, overall attendance is limited. Please
contact the workshop chairs if you wish to attend as an observer.

Accepted papers will be published by IEEE Press in a proceedings volume.

 Program Committee

  - Marshall D. Abrams (MITRE, USA)
  - Jim Hughes (StorageTek, USA)
  - John James (United States Military Academy, USA)
  - Carl Landwehr (National Science Foundation, USA)
  - James Bret Michael (Naval Postgraduate School, USA)
  - Peter G. Neumann (SRI CSL, USA)
  - Ravi Sandhu (George Mason University, USA)
  - Gene Spafford (Purdue University, USA)

 Workshop Co-Chairs
  - Jack Cole (US Army Research Laboratory, USA)
  - Stephen D. Wolthusen (Fraunhofer-IGD, Germany)

Submissions must not substantially duplicate work that any of the authors
has published elsewhere or has submitted in parallel to any other
conference or workshop with proceedings. The paper must list all authors
and their affiliates on a separate sheet; in case of multiple authors, the
contact author must be indicated. The paper itself must be blinded. It
should begin with a title, a short abstract, and a list of key words, and
its introduction should summarize the contributions of the paper at a level
appropriate for a non-specialist reader.  Submissions should have at most
15 pages excluding the bibliography and appendices (using 10pt body text
and two-column layout), and at most 20 pages total. Authors are responsible
for obtaining appropriate clearances; authors of accepted papers will be
asked to sign IEEE copyright release forms. Submissions not meeting these
guidelines risk rejection without consideration of their merits.

Submissions and questions should be sent electronically to
