The 10th Visualization for Cyber Security (VizSec) will be held in Atlanta GA, USA on October 14, 2013 in conjunction with IEEE VIS. VizSec brings together researchers and practitioners in information visualization and security to address the specific needs of the cyber security community through new and insightful visualization techniques.
The paper deadline has been extended to July 22, 2013 at 5:00pm PDT. Full papers offering novel contributions in security visualization are solicited. Papers may present techniques, applications, practical experience, theory, analysis, or experiments and evaluations. We encourage papers on technologies and methods that promise to improve cyber security practices, including, but not limited to:
- Situational awareness / understanding
- Incident handling including triage, exploration, correlation, and response
- Computer forensics
- Recording and reporting results of investigation
- Reverse engineering and malware analysis
- Multiple data source analysis
- Analyzing information requirements for computer network defense
- Evaluation / User testing of VizSec systems
- Criteria for assessing the effectiveness of cyber security visualizations (whether from a security goal perspective or a human factors perspective)
- Modeling system and network behavior
- Modeling attacker and defender behavior
- Studying risk and impact of cyber attacks
- Predicting future attacks or targets
- Security metrics and education
- Software security
- Mobile application security
- Social networking privacy and security
- Cyber intelligence
- Human factors in cyber security
We are also soliciting posters. Poster submissions may showcase late-breaking results, work in progress, preliminary results, or visual representations relevant to the VizSec community. Accepted poster abstracts will be made available on this website. Poster submissions are due August 23, 2013 at 5:00pm PDT.
