    • Communications and Information Security Technical Committee - CISTC

    IST Directorate D - Network and Communication Technologies

Purpose and Format

    The intention of this workshop foster interaction among researchers from the industry, universities, and other research institutes on various aspects of network monitoring, attack detection and mitigation, suitable for high-speed networks.

    The workshop aims to provide a forum for presenting and discussing recent work, as well as ongoing and planned projects. The workshop will consist of a number of short presentations and discussion on current research, hot topics, position statements, and controversial opinions, as well as practical demonstrations.

    The workshop is in the spirit of the IEEE workshop series on High Speed Networking (c.f. ), and aims to be relatively small (not more than 60 participants), with a considerable amount of time devoted to informal discussion.

    The topics of the workshop include but are not limited to:

    • high-speed network monitoring
    • network anomaly detection
    • denial of service attack detection and mitigation
    • intrusion and worm detection
    • attack response mechanisms
    • policy based mechanisms for detection and response
    • high speed firewalling technology
    • network honeypots
    • use of overlay and peer-to-peer networks for detection and mitigation
    • detection and mitigation of attacks in overlay networks
    • attack detection and mitigation in mobile networks

    The workshop format will include invited keynote presentations as well as short presentations selected from the submissions.

    Accepted submissions will be published in workshop proceedings with ISBN number and will be made available on the Web.

Information to Contributers

    The following types of contributions are invited:

    • Research papers of up to 6 pages, presenting original, recent and innovative research results or developments within the scope of the workshop.
    • Extended abstracts of up to 3 pages, presenting ongoing or planned projects, work in progress, or small yet novel research results.
    • Demonstrations that present original developments. Demonstration submissions should be short, specifying the functionality of the demonstrator, and stating the technical requirements in terms of space and equipment.
    • Panel proposals. We welcome proposals for panels of high relevance to the workshop. Panels are expected to be composed of a moderating chair plus approximately three panelists. A one to two page abstract suitable for inclusion in the proceedings should accompany the proposal.

    Submissions are reviewed, and selected contributions will be included in the workshop proceedings.

    Submissions of papers and extended abstracts are due by 19 June 2006. Submissions must be in PDF.

    Please use the IEEE INFOCOM formating guidelines, for which a sample manuscript is available at:
    Fonts must not be smaller than in these templates.
