Its objectives are to bring together leading researchers from academia and governmental organizations as well as practitioners in the area of computer networks and information security, facilitating personal interactions and discussions on various aspects of information technologies in conjunction with computer network and information security problems arising in large-scale computer networks engaged in information storing, transmitting, and processing.
Topics of interest:
Papers offering novel research contributions to the theoretical aspects of the computer network and information security are solicited for submission.
Papers may present theory, technique, and applications on topics including but not restricted to:
The conference welcomes original papers from academic, government, and industry contributors on mathematical approaches and models, state-of-the-art techniques, and novel applications in the above proposed areas. All submissions will be subjected to a thorough review by at least three reviewers. Draft versions of original full papers up to 12 A4 pages in English using at least 11-point fonts with reasonable margins, including abstract (up to 300 words) and keywords (5 to 8), should be submitted by April 7, 2007 or sooner through the upload facilities at the Conference web site http://www.comsec.spb.ru/mmm-acns07/.
Only electronic submissions in PDF format will be considered.
Authors must also indicate the conference track to which the paper is submitted.
The Program Committee will make the final selection based on peer reviewers' evaluation.
The primary focus is on high-quality original unpublished research, case studies and implementation experiences.
Notification of acceptance/rejection will be disseminated by May 10, 2007.
Camera-ready versions of accepted papers (see below) are due May 30, 2007.
Program Committee plans to publish the Conference Proceeding in Springer series "Lecture Notes in Computer Science" (LNCS).
