Dear all,

The deadline for SPC 2015 is approaching. I apologize for possible


First IEEE Workshop on Security and Privacy in the Cloud (SPC 2015)
Florence, Italy - September 30, 2015

Cloud computing is today the reference paradigm for large-scale data
storage and processing due to the convenient and efficient network
access to configurable resources that can be easily adjusted according
to the users' needs. Although the benefits of cloud computing are
tremendous, security and privacy concerns have still a detrimental
impact on the adoption and acceptability of cloud services.
In fact, users as well as companies that rely on cloud storage and
computation services lose the direct control over the systems
managing their data and applications, thus putting the confidentiality,
integrity and availability of the data at risk. The goal of this
workshop is to bring together researchers and practitioners who are
interested in discussing the security, privacy, and data protection
issues emerging in cloud scenarios, and possible solutions to them.

SPC 2015 will be held in Florence, Italy, in conjunction with the
IEEE Conference on Communications and Network Security (CNS 2015).

The workshop seeks submissions from academia, industry, and government
presenting novel research, as well as experimental studies, on all
theoretical and practical aspects of security, privacy, and data
protection in cloud scenarios.
Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:
- Anonymity in cloud scenarios
- Applied cryptography in cloud scenarios
- Data and application security
- Data and system integrity
- Data availability in outsourcing scenarios
- Data protection
- Efficient access to outsourced data
- Key management in cloud scenarios
- Privacy
- Privacy of accesses
- Secure computation over encrypted data
- Security and trust metrics
- Security and privacy in crowdsourcing
- Security and privacy in multi-clouds and federated clouds
- Security and privacy in data outsourcing
- Security and privacy in the Internet of Things
- Security and privacy of big data
- Security and privacy of distributed computations
- Security and privacy policies
- Selective information sharing
- Threats, vulnerabilities, and risk management

Submitted papers must not substantially overlap papers that have been
published or that are simultaneously submitted to a journal or a
conference with proceedings. Submissions should be at most 9 pages
in the IEEE 8,5"x11" two-column format

Submissions should not be anonymized. The workshop will also consider
short submissions of up to 4 pages for results that are preliminary or
that simply require few pages to describe.
Papers should be submitted for review through EDAS
(http://edas.info/N20487). Only PDF files will be accepted.
Submissions not meeting these guidelines risk rejection without
consideration of their merits. Papers must be received by the deadline
of July 3, 2015 (11:59 p.m. American Samoa time).
Authors of accepted papers must guarantee that their papers will be
presented at the workshop.
Accepted and presented papers will be published in the IEEE 2015
Conference Proceedings and submitted to IEEE Xplore as well as
other Abstracting and Indexing (A&I) databases.

Paper submission due: July 3, 2015 -- 11:59 p.m. American Samoa time
