2–6 September 2013 The Sixth International Workshop on Digital Forensics (WSDF 2013)

Regensburg, Germany

Digital forensics is a rapidly evolving field primarily focused on the extraction, preservation and analysis of digital evidence obtained from electronic devices in a manner that is legally acceptable. Research into new methodologies tools and techniques within this domain is necessitated by an ever-increasing dependency on tightly interconnected, complex and pervasive computer systems and networks. The ubiquitous nature of our digital lifestyle presents many avenues for the potential misuse of electronic devices in crimes that directly involve, or are facilitated by, these technologies. The aim of digital forensics is to produce outputs that can help investigators ascertain the overall state of a system. This includes any events that have occurred within the system and entities that have interacted with that system. Due care has to be taken in the identification, collection, archiving, maintenance, handling and analysis of digital evidence in order to prevent damage to data integrity. Such issues combined with the constant evolution of technology provide a large scope of digital forensic research. WSDF aims to bring together experts from academia, industry, government and law enforcement who are interested in advancing the state of the art in digital forensics by exchanging their knowledge, results, ideas and experiences.

The aim of the workshop is to provide a relaxed atmosphere that promotes discussion and free exchange of ideas while providing a sound academic backing. The focus of this workshop is not only restricted to digital forensics in the investigation of crime. It also addresses security applications such as automated log analysis, forensic aspects of fraud prevention and investigation, policy and governance.

24–26 October 2012 The Second International Conference on Green Communications and Networking

Gandía, Spain

Global warming and climate change have been a growing worldwide concern. Six sources, i.e., transportation, power, buildings, industry, agriculture and forestry, and land use, have been identified as major contributors to the rise of global carbon dioxide (CO2). The mobile industry is seen as a potential enabler to reduce greenhouse gases contributed by these six sources provided that appropriate measures are implemented. On the other hand, the mobile industry itself will also contribute to CO2 emission through network operations, mobile equipments, etc. To meet the requirement of low-carbon economy development, it is necessary to reduce the operation expenditure or energy consumption of mobile networks, while maintaining acceptable quality of service. This conference will explore and explain the scope and challenges of designing, building, and deploying GreenNets. In this regard, the conference aims to establish a forum to bring together research professionals from diverse fields including green mobile networks, system architectures, networking & communication protocols, applications, test-bed and prototype, traffic balance and energy-efficient cooperation transmission, system and application issues related to GreeNets.

6 August 2012 The 2nd USENIX Workshop on Free and Open Communications on the Internet-FOCI '12

Bellevue, WA, USA

The 2nd USENIX Workshop on Free and Open Communications on the Internet (FOCI '12) seeks to bring together researchers and practitioners from technology, law, and policy who are working on means to study, detect, or circumvent practices that inhibit free and open communications on the Internet.

The Internet offers great promise for improving the communication capabilities of citizens, but our increasing dependence on networked communications also makes it easier for organizations to control, monitor, and block communications. ISPs and governments routinely restrict access to Internet content and services, either by censoring access to information or by degrading the performance of services or blocking them entirely. Similarly, ISPs can degrade network performance for certain sets of users for some or all services, for arbitrary purposes. ISPs have been found to block or throttle certain application traffic routinely. This growing trend toward blocking, tampering, or otherwise restricting communications on the Internet calls for improved techniques both for monitoring the state of restrictions on Internet content and communications, in order to inform users, and for circumventing attempts to censor, degrade, or otherwise tamper with Internet communications.

14 April 2012 Theorizing The Web

College Park, Maryland, USA

6–8 February 2012 2nd International Workshop on Semantic Interoperability - IWSI 2012

Vilamoura, Portugal

The Semantic Web would be an evolving extension of current Web model (referred as Syntactic Web) that introduces a semantic layer in which semantics, or meaning of information are formally defined. Semantics should integrate web-centric standard information infrastructures improving several aspects of interaction among heterogeneous systems: semantic interoperability would improve common interoperability models (basic and functional interoperability) introducing the interpretation of means of data. Semantic interoperability is a concretely applicable interaction model under the assumption of adopting rich data models (commonly called Ontology) composed of concepts within a domain and the relationships among those concepts.

Semantic technologies are partially inverting the common view at actor intelligence: intelligence is not implemented (only) by actors but it is implicitly resident in the knowledge model. In other words, schemas contain information and the "code" to interpretate it. The aim of this Workshop is promoting an open international discussion among researchers from both academia and industry about Semantic Interoperability (and related issues) as well as the selection of a restricted number of high-quality selected papers about interest topics.


26–29 October 2011 2nd International Workshop on Semantic Sensor Web - SSW 2011

Paris, France

During last years, sensors have been increasingly adopted in the context of several disciplines and applications (military, industrial, medical, homeland security, etc.) with the aim of collecting and distributing observations of our world in everyday life. Sensors progressively assumed the critical role of bridges between the real world and information systems, through an always more consolidated and efficient sensor technology that enables advanced heterogeneous sensor grids. Current sensor networks are able to detect and identify simple phenomena or measurements as well as complex events and situations. As imaginable, these sensor networks disseminated everywhere around the world are not connected between them as well as associated information systems are not integrated. This scenario can be summarized as too much data and not enough knowledge. 

Sensor Web is commonly defined as: "Web-accessible sensor networks and archived sensor data that can be discovered and accessed using standard protocols and application interfaces". Sensor Web is a progressive concept that, at the moment, is limited mainly by the lack of standardization. 

Semantic Sensor Web would be an evolving extension of Sensor Web that introduces a semantic layer in which semantics, or meaning of information are formally defined. Semantics should integrate web-centric standard information infrastructures improving the capabilities of collecting, retrieving, sharing, manipulating and analyzing sensor data (or associate phenomena) as well as potential interoperability between systems through semantic interactions. 

The aim of Workshop is promoting an open international discussion between researchers from both academia and industry about Semantic Sensor Web (and related issues) as well as the selection of a restricted number of high-quality selected papers about interest topics.

We look forward to creative articulations of the many meanings of the term performance and to the many ways of considering types of participation.

To this end, we call for papers, panel and pre-conference workshop proposals from any discipline, methodology, community or a combination of them that address the conference themes, including, but not limited to, papers that intersect and/or interconnect with the following:

  • Creative performances and digital arts
  • Participatory culture and participatory design
  • Critical performance and political participation
  • Identity performance
  • Exclusion from participation
  • Economic performance of Internet-related industries
  • Game performance
  • Performance expectations (as workers, citizens, etc.)
  • Ritual performances and communal participation

Sessions at the conference will be established that specifically address the conference themes, and we welcome innovative, exciting, and unexpected takes on those themes. We also welcome submissions on topics that address social, cultural, political, legal, aesthetic, economic, and/or philosophical aspects of the Internet beyond the conference themes.

25–26 April 2011 CCV 2011: 2nd Annual International Conference ond Cloud Computing and Virtualisation

Hotel Equatorial Penang, Malaysia

Cloud Computing is defined as a pool of virtualized computer resources. Based on this Virtualization the Cloud Computing paradigm allows workloads to be deployed and scaled-out quickly through the rapid provisioning of virtual machines or physical machines. A Cloud Computing platform supports redundant, self-recovering, highly scalable programming models that allow workloads to recover from many inevitable hardware/software failures.

A Cloud Computing platform is more than a collection of computer resources because it provides a mechanism to manage those resources. In a Cloud Computing platform software is migrating from the desktop into the "clouds" of the Internet, promising users anytime, anywhere access to their programs and data. The concept of cloud computing and how virtualization enables it offers so many innovative opportunities that it is not surprising that there are new announcements every day. The innovation will continue and there will be massive value created for customers over the coming years. Most technologists are sold on the fundamentals of cloud computing and it's a realization of the last 20 years of architecture development. The conference throws light on  how to use cloud computing as a technical design center; how to take advantage of the economics of cloud computing in building and operating cloud services; and how to plan for the technical and operational scale that cloud computing makes possible. Virtualization is a huge topic, and this conference helps to understand virtualization concepts and technology. The goal of International Conference on Cloud Computing and Virtualization is to provide a forum for researchers, academics, and practitioners to discuss all aspects of Cloud Computing.

London, UK

The World Congress on Internet Security (WorldCIS-2011) is Technically Co-Sponsored by IEEE UK/RI Computer Chapter. The WorldCIS-2011 is an international forum dedicated to the advancement of the theory and practical implementation of security on the Internet and Computer Networks. The inability to properly secure the Internet, computer networks, protecting the Internet against emerging threats and vulnerabilities, and sustaining privacy and trust has been a key focus of research. The WorldCIS aims to provide a highly professional and comparative academic research forum that promotes collaborative excellence between academia and industry. On the ubiquitous networking environments, information is explosively used for various kinds of purposes. From a service perspective, a number of context or ambient aware services are envisaged for "ubiquitous networking" but based on the context security remains an issue. The objectives of the WorldCIS are to bridge the knowledge gap between academia and industry, promote research esteem and and to fostering discussions on information technologies, information systems and globa security applications. The WorldCIS-2011 invites speakers and researchers to submit papers that encompass conceptual analysis, design implementation and performance evaluation.

20–22 September 2010 Future Internet Symposium 2010: Towards a Converged, Consolidated and Sustainable Future Internet

Berlin, Germany

The current Internet has undergone an essential transformation: it changed from a network of networks that enables access to remote machines by a consistent protocol suite (TCP/IP), to a network of content, applications, and services. Thus, it became a modern commodity for everyone.

The Future Internet (FI) is destined to continue this development and to provide improved features and usability for individuals and business. Its applications are expected to originate from areas such as entertainment, health, energy grid, utilities and environment, transport, mobility and logistics. Tight economic constraints however, require the Future Internet to consolidate and converge application-specific networks, and support for Internet of Services (IoS), Internet of Things (IoT) and Internet of Content (IoC) in a homogenous and, if possible, a single system.


15–17 September 2010 Implementation in Inter- and Transdisciplinary Research, Practice and Teaching

Geneva, Switzerland

In a knowledge society, research questions, processes and results cannot be disconnected from everyday practices. Politicians, funding bodies and society at large increasingly demand of researchers to propose efficient ways of how to use abstract findings in concrete situations and as a common good. From the very start, implementation strategies should therefore include processes of embedding the research in its social and scientific contexts, recursiveness and negotiation with non-academic actors, and testing the expected impact through ‘real-world’ experiments. How exactly to bring research results to fruition, integrate theory and practice and build truly participative collaborations are key issues of inter- and transdisciplinarity. Keynotes includes experts in the fields of public health, new media, urban planning, sustainability, action research. Please visit our website for further information. Deadline for paper/poster/workshop submissions: 3 May 2010.
