Call for Book Chapters

Cybersecurity & High-Performance Computing Environments: Integrated
Innovations, Practices, and Applications

CRC PRESS   Taylor & Francis


Recently, cyber incidents have become disruptive, increasingly expensive
with political and economic side effects. For such, Cybersecurity has
become the central issue for empowering national and international progress
in diverse scientific and networked science in complicated yet mixed
technology domains. With the advent of myriad different technologies in the
post petascale computing era, computing's future involves a significantly
greater degree of cyber incidents than we are currently observing. The
rapid advancement and introduction of new processing technologies for
computing have facilitated the convergence of Artificial Intelligence (AI)
and Machine Learning (ML), Data Analytics and Big Data and the
High-Performance Computing (HPC) domains platforms to solve complex,
large-scale real-time analytics and scientific applications on diverse
scientific and non-scientific fields. As we move towards exascale future
and beyond, the new convergent computing platforms along with a paradigm
shift in programming applications leveraging these platforms provide both
challenges and opportunities for cyberinfrastructure facilitators,
researchers, and administrators to develop, deliver, support, and prepare a
diverse set of solutions utilizing emerging technologies to mitigate
cyber-attacks and achieve cyber resilience in real-time.

Book co-editors intend to invite experts and members from HPC and
Cybersecurity Community to contribute articles on emergent research
innovations, practices, and applications focusing on the interdependence of
cybersecurity and high-performance computing domains to discover and
resolve new emerging cyber-threats.

The book editors encourage submissions on the solutions that address the
threats to the Confidentiality, Integrity, Availability in high-performance
computing (HPC) environments and solutions that utilize the power of the
HPC environments to study and understand the multifaceted complexities,
anomalous and malicious characteristics, and the modeling and simulation of
complex technical, organizational, and human systems instrumental in
providing cybersecurity that is beyond human comprehension.

Topics of interest may include, but are not limited to, the following:

• Big Data architectures, algorithms, and applications for cybersecurity

• Cyber Analytics

• Scientific fidelity

• Edge Computing Security

• Security, Privacy, Trust, and Safety in HPC Environments

• Algorithms and Systems for Intrusion and Anomaly Detection, and Response

• Models and frameworks for Cybersecurity

• Container Technology Security

• Mobile and IoT Security Algorithms and Applications

• Cloud security architectures and algorithms

• Security in AI and ML

• AI platforms for cybersecurity

• Blockchain for HPC security

• Resiliency in HPC applications and Environments

• Extreme-scale computing security

• Application and Information Security

• Network Security

• HPC facilities Confidentiality, Integrity, and Availability

• Cybersecurity DRP -Disaster Recovery Plan

• HPC Operations Security

• Robustness and Security measurements, standards, and policies for future
generation computing systems and networks

Proposal submission

A proposal for a book chapter is needed from prospective authors before the
proposal *submission due date*, describing the objective, scope, and
structure of the proposed chapter (no more than 5 pages). With the chapter
proposal, please also submit a brief biography of each author. Acceptance
of chapter proposals will be communicated to lead chapter authors after a
formal double-blind review process to ensure relevance, quality, and
originality. The submission of chapter proposals should be sent directly
via email to Nitin Sukhija (email: nitin.sukhija at sru.edu) and Kuan-Ching Li
(kuancli at gm.pu.edu.tw).
