Subject: Advance Announcement: 2012 ACM Cloud Computing Security Workshop

2012 ACM Cloud Computing Security Workshop (CCSW) at CCS 

October 19, 2012, Sheraton Raleigh Hotel, Raleigh, NC. 

Dear Colleagues, 

ACM CCSW is back! The previous workshops were a tremendous success, with
over 100+ people in the audience, multiple sponsors (NSF, Microsoft), 3-5
invited talks and excellent papers.  This year we hope you will join us in
yet another successful event.


Notwithstanding the latest buzzword (grid, cloud, utility computing, SaaS,
etc.), large-scale computing and cloud-like infrastructures are here to
stay. How exactly they will look like tomorrow is still for the markets to
decide, yet one thing is certain: clouds bring with them new untested
deployment and associated adversarial models and vulnerabilities. It is
essential that our community becomes involved at this early stage. The CCSW
workshop aims to bring together researchers and practitioners in all
security aspects of cloud-centric and outsourced computing, including:

    practical cryptographic protocols for cloud security
    secure cloud resource virtualization mechanisms
    secure data management outsourcing (e.g., database as a service)
    practical privacy and integrity mechanisms for outsourcing
    foundations of cloud-centric threat models
    secure computation outsourcing
    remote attestation mechanisms in clouds
    sandboxing and VM-based enforcements
    trust and policy management in clouds
    secure identity management mechanisms
    new cloud-aware web service security paradigms and mechanisms
    cloud-centric regulatory compliance issues and mechanisms
    business and security risk models and clouds
    cost and usability models and their interaction with security in clouds
    scalability of security in global-size clouds
    trusted computing technology and clouds
    binary analysis of software for remote attestation and cloud protection
    network security (DOS, IDS etc.) mechanisms for cloud contexts
    security for emerging cloud programming models
    energy/cost/efficiency of security in clouds

We would like to especially encourage novel paradigms and controversial
ideas that are not on the above list. The workshop is to act as a fertile
ground for creative debate and interaction in security-sensitive areas of
computing impacted by clouds. 

CCSW is soliciting full papers of up to 12 pages and short papers of up to 6
pages. Submissions must be in double-column ACM format with a font no
smaller than 9 point. Please use the ACM SIG Proceedings Templates,
available at the ACM website. Only PDF files will be accepted. Submissions
not meeting these guidelines risk rejection without consideration of their
merits. Accepted papers will be published by the ACM Press and/or the ACM
Digital Library.

Both research and position/vision/white papers are invited. Submissions must
not substantially overlap with papers that have been published or that are
simultaneously submitted to a journal or a conference with proceedings. All
authors and their affiliations must be listed. Each accepted paper must be
presented by one registered author. 


Submissions due: July 16, 2012
Author notification: August 13, 2012
Camera-ready: August 24, 2012
