SHPCS 2016 : 11th International Workshop on Security and High Performance
Computing Systems


As part of
The 2016 International Conference on High Performance Computing &
(HPCS 2016)

July 18 - 22, 2016
Innsbruck, Austria


Providing high performance computing and security is a challenging task.
Internet, operating systems and distributed environments currently suffer
from poor security support and cannot resist common attacks. Adding
security measures typically degrade performance. This workshop addresses
relationships between security, high performance and distributed computing
systems in four directions. First, it considers how to add security
properties (authentication, confidentiality, integrity, non-repudiation,
access control) to high performance computing systems and how they can be
formally verified both at design-time (formal verification) and at run-time
(run-time verification). In this case, safety properties can also be
addressed, such as availability and fault tolerance for high performance
computing systems. Second, it addresses vulnerabilities and security
threats (and remediation) targeting HPC, grid, cloud and mobile
environments. Third, it covers how to use HPC systems to solve security
problems. For instance, a grid computation can break an encryption code, a
cluster can support high performance intrusion detection or a distributed
formal verification system. More generally, this topic addresses every
efficient use of a high performance computing systems to improve security.
Fourth, it investigates the tradeoffs between maintaining high performance
and achieving security in computing systems and solutions to balance the
two objectives. In all these directions, various formal analyses, as well
as performance analyses or monitoring techniques can be conducted to show
the efficiency of a security infrastructure.

The workshop seeks submissions from academia and industry presenting novel
research on all theoretical and practical aspects of security related to
HPC, distributed, network and mobile environments, as well as case studies
and implementation experiences. Papers should have practical relevance to
the construction, evaluation, application, or operation of secure systems.

- Access Control

- Inference/Controlled Disclosure
- Information Warfare
- Intellectual Property Protection
- Intrusion and Attack Detection
- Intrusion and Attack Response
- Key Management
- Mobile Security
- Privacy-Enhancing Technology
- Secure Networking
- Secure System Design
- Security Monitoring & Management
- Security for Mobile Code

- Web Security
- Web Services Security

SHPCS welcomes submission of papers describing:
- Experimental work to measure existing systems and applications
- Industrial experience relevant to the Workshop-s themes
- Theoretical work on specific new models
- Software and hardware platforms from the angle of security and
- Short papers describing ongoing work.
Submitted papers should highlight their application or relevance for HPCS

You are invited to submit original and unpublished research works on above
and other topics related to Security and HPC in each local/distributed
application fields (Grid, Cloud, mobile). Submitted papers must not have
been published or simultaneously submitted elsewhere. Submission should
include a cover page with authors' names, affiliation addresses, fax
numbers, phone numbers, and email addresses. Please, indicate clearly the
corresponding author and include up to 6 keywords from the above list of
topics and an abstract of no more than 400 words. The full manuscript
should be at most 8 pages using the two-column IEEE format. Additional
pages will be charged additional fee. Short papers (up to 4 pages), poster
papers and posters (please refer to
the submission details) will also be accepted for submission. Please
include page numbers on all preliminary submissions to make it easier for
reviewers to provide helpful comments.

Submit a PDF copy of your full manuscript using the Workshop EasyChair
submission link at https://www.easychair.org/conferences/-conf=shpcs2016.

Only PDF files will be accepted, submitted via the link above. Each paper
will receive a minimum of three reviews. Papers will be selected based on
their originality, relevance, technical clarity and presentation.
Submission implies the willingness of at least one of the authors to
register and present the paper, if accepted. Authors of accepted papers
must guarantee that their papers will be registered and presented at the

Accepted papers will be published in the conference proceedings.
Instructions for final manuscript format and requirements will be posted on
the HPCS 2016 web site. It is our intent to have the proceedings formally
published in hard and soft copies and be available at the time of the
conference. The proceedings is to be published as ISBN proceedings by the
IEEE and will be available online through IEEE Digital Library and indexed
by major indexing services accordingly (e.g., SCOPUS, EI indexing -).

Authors of selected papers will be invited to submit an extended version of
their work for a special issue in a distinguished ISI Journal. More details
will be announced later.
If you have any questions about paper submission or the workshop, please
contact the workshop organizers.
