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
issues

Malware:
- 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
management
- Software development, testing, and verification methodologies for
IT-security

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.
