12th International Workshop on Security and High Performance Computing
(SHPCS 2017)


As part of
The International Conference on High Performance Computing & Simulation
(HPCS 2017)
http://hpcs17.cisedu.info/  or  http://cisedu.us/rp/hpcs17

July 17 - July 21, 2017
Genoa, Italy

Submission Deadline: March 01, 2017

Submissions could be for full papers, short papers, poster papers, or

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
- Accounting and Audit
- Anonymity
- Applied Cryptography

- Commercial and Industry Security
- Cryptographic Protocols
- Data and Application Security
- Data/System Integrity
- Database Security
- Digital Rights Management
- Formal Verification of Secure Systems
- Identity Management
- Inference/Controlled Disclosure
- Information Warfare
- Intellectual Property Protection
- Intrusion and Attack Detection
- Intrusion and Attack Response
- Key Management
- Privacy-Enhancing Technology
- Secure Networking
- Secure System Design
- Security Monitoring & Management
- Security for Mobile Code
- Security for Specific Domains (e.g., E-Government, E-Business, P2P)
- Security in IT Outsourcing
- Security in Mobile and Wireless Networks
- Security in Untrusted & Adversarial Environments and Systems
- Security in Operating Systems
- Security Location Services
- Security of Grid and Cluster Architectures
- Security Visualization
- Smartcards
- Trust Management Policies
- Trust Models
- Web Security
- Web Services Security

You are invited to submit original and unpublished research works on above
and other topics related to  Security and HPC in each local and distributed
application fields (e.g. Many-core, Grid, mobile).  Submitted papers must
not have been published or simultaneously submitted elsewhere.  For Regular
papers, please submit a PDF copy of your full manuscript, not to exceed 8
double-column formatted pages per template, and include up to 6 keywords
and an abstract of no more than 400 words. Additional pages will be charged
additional fee. Submission should include a cover page with authors' names,
affiliation addresses, fax numbers, phone numbers, and all authors email
addresses. Please, indicate clearly the corresponding author(s) although
all authors are equally responsible for the manuscript. Short papers (up to
4 pages), poster papers and posters (please refer to
ion/call-for-posters for posters submission details) will also be
considered. Please specify the type of submission you have.  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 to the workshop EasyChair paper
submission site at xxx. Acknowledgement will be sent within 48 hours of

Only PDF files will be accepted, uploaded to the submission link above.
Each paper will receive a minimum of three reviews.  Papers will be
selected based on their originality, relevance, significance, technical
clarity and presentation, language, and references. Submission implies the
willingness of at least one of the authors to register and present the
paper, if accepted. At least one of the authors of each accepted paper will
have to register and attend the HPCS 2017 conference to present the paper
at the workshop.

Accepted papers will be published in the Conference proceedings.
Instructions for final manuscript format and requirements will be posted on
the HPCS 2017 Conference 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 projected to be included in the IEEE or
ACM Digital Library and indexed in all major indexing services accordingly.

Plans are underway to have the best papers, in extended version, selected
for possible publication in a journal as special issue. Detailed
information will soon be announced and will be made available on the
conference website.

If you have any questions about paper submission or the workshop, please
contact the workshop organizers.
