                               NSS 2015
     The 9th International Conference on Network and System Security
                    November 3-5, 2015, New York City, USA


Paper submission:    June 30, 2015
Notification of acceptance:    August 1, 2015
Camera-Ready due:    August 20, 2015


While the attack systems have become more easy-to-use, sophisticated, and
powerful, interest has greatly increased in the field of building more
effective, intelligent, adaptive, active and high performance defense
systems which are distributed and networked. The conference will cover
research on all theoretical and practical aspects related to network and
system security, such as authentication, access control, availability,
integrity, privacy, confidentiality, dependability and sustainability of
computer networks and systems. The aim of NSS is to provide a leading edge
forum to foster interaction between researchers and developers with the
network and system security communities, and to give attendees an
opportunity to interact with experts in academia, industry, and governments.

NSS is an annual international conference covering research in network and
system security. The conference seeks submissions from academia, industry,
and government presenting novel research on all theoretical and practical
aspects of network security, privacy, applications security, and system
security. Papers describing case studies, implementation experiences, and
lessons learned are also encouraged.
Topics of interest include but are not limited to:

- Active Defense Systems
- Adaptive Defense Systems
- Applied Cryptography
- Analysis, Benchmark of Security Systems

NSS 2015 is the next event in a series of highly successful events of
Network and System Security. Previous editions were held in: Xi'an,
China(2014), Madrid, Spain(2013); Wu Yi Shan, China (2012); Milan, Italy
(2011); Melbourne, Australia; (2010); Gold Coast, Australia (2009);
Shanghai, China (2008); and Dalian, China (2007).


Only PDF files will be accepted. If accepted, one of the authors is
expected to present the paper at the conference. The submission must be
anonymous, with no author names, affiliations, acknowledgements, or obvious

*Regular and Short Paper Session

Submissions must not substantially overlap with papers that have been
published or that are simultaneously submitted to a journal or a conference
with proceedings. Submissions should be at most 14 pages for regular papers
and 8 pages for short papers in LNCS format, including the bibliography and
appendices. Accepted papers will be published by Springer-Verlag as a
volume of the Lecture Notes in Computer Science series. Authors are
encouraged to prepare their submissions following Springer's LNCS Author

*Work-in-Progress Session

Contributions to a special Work-in-Progress (WiP) session of NSS'15 are
sought. The WiP session will be devoted to the presentation of new and
on-going research into all areas of system and network security. We are
especially interested in new and creative ideas and approaches.
Contributors to the WiP session will be asked to give a short presentation
of their work and prepare a poster for discussion during the poster

Submissions should be at most 2 pages in IEEE format, including the
bibliography. All accepted WiP papers will be included in a proceeding
published by IEEE.

*Submission Portal

Submissions must be made to the submission website at



Selected papers will be invited to the following two journal special issues:
