SIGKDD Calls for Proposals

Data Science for Cyber-Security, 2017: Call for Papers

We welcome contributed papers to the Data Science for Cyber-Security workshop, Imperial College London, 25-27th September 2017. This event aims to showcase cutting-edge research into statistical cyber-security in academia, business and government, as well as help align these endeavours. Accepted papers will be published in formal proceedings, by World Scientific, alongside the contributions from the invited speakers.

The use of data scientific techniques for cyber-security applications is a relatively new paradigm. This refers to the use of mathematics, statistics, machine-learning and/or Big-Data analytics to enhance detections and provide additional security over traditional techniques. We welcome papers in this area, which could include, for example, applications in enterprise network security, fraud detection, risk management and monitoring, malware analysis, cyber-crime prevention and more. Also welcome are presentations of new cyber-security problems, information systems and data resources.

The deadline for submissions is 15th June, 2017 (midnight, BST)

Reviews by 30th June, 2017

Camera-ready copies by 14th July, 2017
