CEWE – 2015

3rd International Workshop on Cybercrimes and Emerging Web Environments

To be held in conjunction with the 13th IEEE International Conference on Dependable, Autonomic and Secure Computing (DASC-2015)

Call for Papers

Aim and scope

The web has integrated innovative technologies in order to advance its services and accommodate future concepts and needs. It is considered an interactive and collaborative medium of the modern era. However, the constant and increased development of web services, transforms the web environments to playgrounds for fraudsters.

Cybercriminals are becoming increasingly adept at taking advantage of technology both to perform the criminal act and to avoid detection. While the use of computers and the Internet become even more popular, at the same time cybercriminals take advantage of existing and emerging vulnerabilities and increase their ways of attacking systems. It is believed that new types of crimes that involve computers and the web emerge on a constant basis.

The scope of this workshop is to provide an international forum for researchers and field experts to present and discuss Cybercrimes under the constantly emerging web environment. It also aims to explore the prevention, detection and investigation of Cybercrimes.

The main topic areas of interest include, but are not limited to the following:

  • Electronic Fraud
  • Intrusion detection systems
  • Forensic techniques for the investigation of Cybercrimes
  • Forensic imaging and volatile data
  • Anti-Forensic emerging trends
  • Information Security, Information Assurance and Security Management
  • Cyber threats and future trends
  • Risk assessment on information systems
  • Incident response and investigation
  • Malware trends, developments and forensic analysis
  • Data mining and the malicious use of personal information
  • Best practices and case studies
  • Legal, policy and ethical issues related to Cybercrime prevention and investigation
  • Security and forensics in social networks
  • Cybercriminal profiling

Academics, researchers and industry practitioners are encouraged to submit original work, research papers, work-in-progress papers, case studies and experience reports.
