RAID 2004
Seventh International Symposium on Recent Advances in Intrusion Detection
Intrusion Detection and Society
Institut Eurécom, Sophia Antipolis, French Riviera, France
September 15-17, 2004

Call for Papers [PDF] [ASCII]

This symposium, the seventh in an annual series, brings together leading researchers and practitioners from academia, government, and industry to discuss intrusion detection technologies and issues from the research and commercial perspectives. The RAID International Symposium series is intended to further advances in intrusion detection by promoting the exchange of ideas in a broad range of topics.

For RAID 2004 there is a special theme: the interdependence between intrusion detection and society. Thus, we will also welcome papers that address issues that arise when studying intrusion detection, including information gathering and monitoring, as a part of a larger, not necessarily purely technical, perspective. For example, the implication of information gathering and detection technologies on enterprises, organisations and authorities, as well as legislative and governing bodies is within scope, but also the impact and restrictions from those bodies on the design and technology. This would include issues such as privacy, risk and emergency management, crisis management, security policies, standardisation and legal issues. An increasingly important dynamic is the strategic importance of protecting national information infrastructures, which is in some tension with the fact that much of this infrastructure is in the private sector. Related to this is the potential strategic impact of attacks at the intersection of information and physical infrastructure.

The RAID 2004 program committee invites three types of submissions:

All topics related to Intrusion Detection Systems and Technologies are within scope, including their design, use and maintenance, integration, correlation and self-protection, just to mention a few.

With reference to this year's theme and extended scope we also invite papers on the following topics, as they bear on intrusion detection and the general problem of information security:

Risk assessment and risk management
Intrusion tolerance
Deception systems and honeypots
Privacy aspects
Data mining techniques
Visualization techniques
Cognitive approaches
Biological approaches
Case studies
Legal issues
Critical infrastucture protection (CIP)
