                            CALL FOR PAPERS

                          *** NEW DEADLINE ***

     6th Workshop on Security and High Performance Computing Systems
                              (SHPCS 2011)

As part of "The International Conference on High Performance Computing &
Simulation - HPCS 2011" (
In conjunction with "The 7th International Wireless Communications and
Mobile Computing Conference - IWCMC 2011" (

                          July 4-8, 2011
                         Istanbul, Turkey



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 degrades performance.
This workshop addresses relationships between security and high
performance computing systems in three directions.
First, it considers how to add security properties (authentication,
confidentiality, integrity, non-repudiation, access control) to high
performance computing systems. In this case, safety properties can also
be addressed, such as availability and fault tolerance for high
performance computing systems.
Second, it covers how to use high performance computing systems to solve
security problems. For instance, a grid computation can break an
encryption code, or a cluster can support high performance intrusion
detection. More generally, this topic addresses every efficient use of a
high performance computing systems to improve security.
Third, 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 performance analyses or monitoring
techniques can be conducted to show the efficiency of a security

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

The Workshop topics include (but are not limited to) the following:
* Access Control
* Accounting and Audit
* Anonymity
* Applied Cryptography
* Authentication
* Cloud Security
* 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


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 7
pages using the two-column IEEE format. Please include page numbers on
all submissions to make it easier for reviewers to provide helpful
comments. Submit a PDF copy of your full manuscript via using the
easychair submission link at:

Only PDF files will be accepted. Each paper will receive a minimum of
three reviews. Papers will be selected based on their originality,
relevance, technical clarity and presentation. Authors of accepted
papers must guarantee that their papers will be registered and presented
at the workshop. Accepted papers will be published in the IEEE Digital
Library after the conference and included in HPCS 2011 proceedings which
will be made available at the time of the meeting.

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