Apologies if you received multiple copies of this IEEE ISSR-2013 CFP.

Call for Papers for the 5th IEEE International Workshop on
Security in e-Science and e-Research (ISSR 2013)
To be held in conjunction with The 2013 IEEE International Conference on 
Trust, Security and Privacy in Computing and Communications (IEEE TrustCom-2013, http://anss.org.au/trustcom2013/index.html)

Venue & Dates:
Melbourne, Australia, 16-18 July 2013

Conference Website:


E-Science and e-Research, through development of Grid computing and Cloud computing based e-Infrastructures, can be used to support a wide range of research disciplines
and inter-disciplinary research. In recent years, the influence of e-Science and e-Research has grown considerably and their scope of applications now covers many 
research domains, from science and engineering disciplines such as physical, biological, clinical sciences and so on, through to the arts and humanities and 
social sciences. Supporting e-Science and e-Research often places numerous demands on capabilities associated with Grid and Cloud infrastructures. One key challenge is
with regard to security. Security technologies must support a variety of user requirements and provider requirements such as authentication, authorization, trust, 
privacy, policy management, and information assurance, all in a user and provider friendly framework. Many e-Science and e-Research projects have developed distinctive
security analyses, requirements, and technical solutions for a variety of applications.

Following the success of ISSR-12 (held in Liverpool, UK, in conjunction with IEEE TrustCom-12), ISSR-11 (held in Changsha, China, in conjunction with IEEE TrustCom-11),
ISSR-10 (held in Taipei, Taiwan, in conjunction with IEEE ISPA-10) and ISSR-09 (held in Chengdu, China, in conjunction with IEEE ISPA-09), the workshop intends to 
provide a forum for researchers, developers and users working on security issues associated with e-Science and e-Research to exchange ideas and share experiences. 
The workshop has emphasis on establishing a state-of-the-art for security in e-Science and e-Research, identifying challenges and discussing solutions for successfully
enabling security for e-Science and e-Research. The workshop program will be a blend of presentations of research papers, and discussions about the current status, 
emergent areas, and trends on security-related issues in e-Science and e-Research.
