                      Second GI SIG SIDAR Conference on
        Detection of Intrusions & Malware, and Vulnerability Assessment
       In Cooperation with the IEEE Task Force on Information Assurance
                              Vienna, Austria
                              July 7 - 8, 2005

The special interest group Security - Intrusion Detection and Response
(SIDAR) of the German Informatics Society (GI) organizes DIMVA as an annual
conference that brings together experts from throughout Europe to discuss
the state of the art in the areas of intrusion detection, detection of
malware, and assessment of vulnerabilities. DIMVA emphasizes the
collaboration and exchange of ideas between industry, academia, law
enforcement and government, and invites four types of submissions:

- Full papers of up to 6000 words, presenting novel and mature research
  results. Full papers will be reviewed, and papers accepted for presentation
  at the conference will be included in the proceedings, which are planned to
  appear in Springer’s Lecture Notes in Computer Science (LNCS) series. 

- Industry papers of up to 2000 words, describing best practices, case
  studies, lessons learned, or latest product developments. Industry papers
  will be reviewed and, if accepted for presentation at the conference, will
  be published at the DIMVA 2005 Web site.

- Panel proposals for the discussion of hot topics in the areas of intrusion
  detection, malware, or vulnerability assessment. Panel proposals should 
  include a short rationale for the panel, a description of the proposed
  panel format, and names of panelists.

- Proposals of two-to-three-hour tutorials on topics of current or emerging 
  interest. Tutorial proposals must not exceed three pages. They must
  clearly identify the intended audience, include a brief biography of the
  speaker, and contain enough material to provide a sense of their scope
  and depth. Tutorial material will be published on the DIMVA 2005 Web site.

The scope of DIMVA is broad and includes, but is not restricted to the
following areas:

Intrusion detection:
- Novel intrusion detection and correlation techniques such as alert fusion
  or honey pots
- Intrusion detection in special environments such as control systems or
  mobile networks 
- Assessment, testing, and benchmarking of intrusion detection systems
- Automated response systems and intrusion prevention systems
- Incident management and response, response team cooperation, and legal

- Detection and prevention of viruses, worms, Trojan horses, and other
  forms of malware
- Malware trends and statistics
- Techniques used to increase the harmfulness of malware
- Detailed analysis and discussion of the latest malware as well as
  computer and network forensics in general

Vulnerability assessment:
- New reverse engineering techniques
- Circumvention of security mechanisms such as bypassing of buffer
  overflow protection
- Risk evaluation and weighing, ROI on vulnerability assessments and
- Software development, testing, and verification methodologies for

DIMVA specifically encourages interdisciplinary papers that combine elements
from all three main areas, as well as papers from other communities such as
machine learning, law, crime detection & investigation, or economics that
present these communities’ perspectives on and contributions to the above IT
security issues.
