Call For Papers

Protecting the communication and data infrastructure of an increasingly inter-connected world has become vital to the normal functioning of all aspects of our world. Security has emerged as an important scientific discipline whose many multifaceted complexities deserve the attention and synergy of the mathematical, computer science and engineering communities.

After the previous meetings held in La Rochelle, Montreal, Grenoble, Toronto, Paris, Clermont-Ferrand and Quebec city, this 10th edition of the FPS symposium will be held in Nancy, France.

The aim of FPS is to discuss and exchange theoretical and practical ideas that address security issues in inter-connected systems. It aims to provide scientific presentations as well as to establish links, promote scientific collaboration, joint research programs, and student exchanges between institutions involved in this important and fast moving research field.

We also invite papers from researchers and practitioners working in security, privacy, trustworthy data systems and related areas to submit their original papers. The main topics, but not limited to, include:

    Computer and Network Security
    Formal foundations in Information or Operational Security
    Security of Service Oriented Architectures
    Information Theoretic Security
    Security of Cloud Computing
    Security Management and Security Policies
    Policy-based Security Architectures
    Security of P2P systems
    Security & Privacy on Social Networks
    Access Control Languages
    Data Mining & Watermarking
    Cryptography & Cryptanalysis
    Threat Analysis and Trust Management
    Privacy & Sensitive Data Management
    Policy-based Distributed Information Systems
    Security in Sensor Networks and RFIDs
    Security of Cloud Computing, Grid Computing
    Security of Distributed Embedded Middleware
    Distributed Security Protocols & Policies
    Security and Privacy in Digital Currencies
    Malware, Botnet and Advanced Persistent Threats
    Code Reverse Engineering and Vulnerability Exploitation
    Side Channel & Physical Attacks
    Social Engineering
    Security of Big-Data

Submissions Guidelines

Full papers should be at most 16 pages, including the bibliography and appendices. Short and Position papers should be up to 8 pages. Authors should indicate whether their paper is a “position paper” to differentiate them from regular ones (you mention “Position paper” in the title).

Committee members are not required to read the appendices, so the paper should be intelligible without them.

All submissions must be written in English.

Authors must submit their papers by the deadline indicated below, using the EasyChair web site (using the link) and following the requirements stated there. All papers will be refereed. The submitted contribution should be formatted according to Springer’s LNCS style. Submissions by PhD students as well as surveys and controversial ideas are encouraged. Case studies (successful or not) are also encouraged.


As in previous editions, proceedings will be published by Springer-Verlag in the Lecture Notes in Computer Science (LNCS) series. At least one author of each accepted paper must register to the symposium, by the date indicated by the organizers, and present the paper.
