Scope: 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 Montreal, Grenoble, Toronto and
Paris, this fifth edition of the FPS symposium will be held at ETS
(Ecole de Technologie Superieure), in Montreal (QC, Canada), the 25th
and 26th of October of 2012.

The aim of this event 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.

Topics: we 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,

* Cryptography & Cryptanalysis
* Security in Service Oriented Architectures
* Security in Web Services

11-point font), excluding the bibliography and well-marked appendices.
Position papers, as well as extended abstract and contributed talks,
should be up to 8 pages (using 11-point font). Committee members are
not required to read the appendices, so the paper should be

and controversial ideas are encouraged. Case studies (successful or
not) are also encouraged.

Computer Science (LNCS) series. At least one author of each accepted
paper must register to the symposium, by the early date indicated by
the organizers, and present the paper.
