(http://space.iias.spb.su/mmm-acns05/index.jsp) and MMM-ACNS-2007
(http://comsec.spb.ru/mmm-acns07/ ) organized by St. Petersburg
Institute for Informatics and Automation, Binghamton University (SUNY)
and supported by the European Office of Aerospace Research and
Development USAF, Office of Naval Research Global, and Russian
Foundation for Basic Research were successful. These conferences
demonstrated the high interest of the international scientific community
to the theoretical and practical aspects of the computer network and
information security.

The goals of MMM-ACNS-2010 Conference (http://comsec.spb.ru/mmm-acns10/)
to bring together leading researchers from academia and governmental
organizations as well as practitioners to advance the states of the art
and practice in the area of computer networks and information security
with a focus on novel theoretical aspects of computer network security,
facilitate personal interactions and discussions on various aspects of
information technologies in conjunction with computer network and
information security problems arising in large-scale computer networks.

The MMM-ACNS-2010 Conference will be carried out together with the First
International Workshop “Scientific Analysis and Policy Support for Cyber
Security” (SA&PS4CS-2010) (http://www.comsec.spb.ru/saps4cs10/)

The main topics of the SA&PS4CS’2010 are detection, discrimination, and
attribution of various activities of malefactors and response to cyber
intrusions and attacks including national level information operations
as well as identifying emergent cyber technologies supporting social and
political activity management and trans-national distributed computing

* Objectives of the MMM-ACNS-2010 Conference *

The main objectives of the MMM-ACNS-2010 Conference are to discuss
state-of-the-art in mathematical methods and models for computer
networks and information security to promote a better understanding of
recent achievements and trends in the computer network security, as well
as making use of recent achievements in the area of advanced information
technologies for computer network and information assurance.

Security assurance of resident information and computer networks’
software is one of the important problems of the modern computer science
and information technology. The problem importance is confirmed by ever
increasing multiplicity and diversity of threads and vulnerabilities of
computer networks, permanently increasing significance and value of
information itself, and by potentially devastating consequences of
successful attacks on integrity, resource availability and information
confidentiality. Unauthorized access to computer network facilities and
network resources, especially in global networks participating in
real-time control operations, may be truly disastrous.

There are several reasons for the complexity of the problem under study.
The growing size of the network, its interconnectivity, large number of
users, increasing number of vulnerable targets within the network
(communication protocols, operating systems, servers, applications,
etc.), and the appearance of effective and previously unknown types of
attacks are among them.

An additional objective of the conference is to bring together
researchers and developers from academia, industry and governmental
organizations to exchange ideas in a broad range of topics among
researchers, security system developers and users from research and
commercial perspective.

Since the scope of the conference covers areas presenting specific
interest for basic and applied research organizations, information about
the conference will be distributed among the corresponding organizations
in Russia and worldwide. So far preliminary agreement to participate in
the conference is received from leading Russian Institutions doing basic
and applied research in Computer Science, Telecommunication and Computer
Security and from companies developing relevant industrial applications.
MMM-ACNS-2009 program and agenda will be finalized after paper reviewing
and selecting procedure by *June 14, 2009*.

* Objectives of the SA&PS4CS-2010 Workshop *

Cyber security is receiving a significant international attention given
recent network attacks involving Russia, Estonia, USA, China and many
other countries.

The Workshop aims to bring together researchers and practitioners
involved in multiple disciplines concerning scientific analysis and
policy support for cyber security to exchange ideas and to learn the
latest developments in this important field.

We are planning to invite researchers from the Human Behavior, Network
Security, Artificial Intelligence (mainly in the fields of intelligent
data analysis, adversarial planning and game theory) and Autonomous
Agents communities (mainly software agent technology) to integrate their
respective technologies and develop a research agenda to detect and
analyze attacks by Cyber Militias, detect and analyze the mechanisms
used by Bot Armies, detect and block intrusions.

This Workshop could promote internationally shared understanding of the
technically supportable indications and warnings for various types of
intrusions and attacks, from the isolated to the highly coordinated, and
from the forensic to strategic.

The Workshop is planned on the last day of MMM-ACNS-2010.
