DIMVA 2008

Malware, and
Vulnerability Assessment

Organized by the GI Special Interest Group SIDAR

July 10-11th, 2008

Call for Papers

The annual DIMVA conference serves as a premier forum for
advancing the
state of the art in intrusion detection, malware detection, and
vulnerability assessment. Each year DIMVA brings together
international
experts from academia, industry and government to present and
discuss
novel research in these areas. DIMVA is organized by the special
interest group [2]Security - Intrusion Detection and Response of the
[3]German Informatics Society (GI). The conference proceedings will
appear in Springer's [4]Lecture Notes in Computer Science (LNCS)
series.

DIMVA solicits submission of high-quality, original scientific work.
This year we invite two types of paper submissions:
* Full papers, presenting novel and mature research results. Full
papers are limited to 20 pages, prepared according to the
instructions provided below. They will be reviewed by the
program
committee, and papers accepted for presentation at the
conference
will be included in the proceedings.
* Short papers (extended abstracts), presenting original, still
ongoing work that has not yet reached the maturity required
for a
full paper. Short papers are limited to 10 pages, prepared
according to the instructions provided below. They will also be
reviewed by the program committee, and papers accepted for
presentation at the conference will be included in the
proceedings
(containing Extended Abstract in the title).

DIMVA's scope includes, but is not restricted to the following
areas:
* Intrusion Detection
+ Approaches
+ Implementations
+ Prevention and response
+ Result correlation
+ Evaluation
+ Potentials and limitations
+ Operational experiences
+ Evasion and other attacks
+ Legal and social aspects
* Malware
+ Techniques
+ Detection
+ Prevention and containment
+ Evaluation
+ Trends and upcoming risks
+ Forensics and recovery
* Vulnerability Assessment
+ Vulnerabilities
+ Vulnerability detection
+ Vulnerability prevention
+ Classification and evaluation

DIMVA particularly encourages papers that discuss the integration of
intrusion, malware, and vulnerability detection in large-scale
operational communication networks.
