Call For Papers - RAID 2000
Third International Symposium on
Recent Advances in Intrusion Detection

October 2-4, 2000
Toulouse, France
in conjunction with ESORICS 2000

This symposium, the third in an ongoing annual series, will bring together leading figures from academia, government, and industry to discuss state-of-the-art intrusion detection technologies and issues from research and commercial perspectives. RAID'2000 will welcome full papers in addition to extended abstracts and panel proposals, and has organized peer review to publish hardcopy proceedings. Proceedings will be published by Springer Verlag in the Lecture Notes in Computer Science series.

The RAID International Symposium series is intended to further progress in intrusion detection by promoting the exchange of ideas in a broad range of topics among researchers, system developers and users. RAID'98, held in Louvain-la-Neuve, Belgium, was hosted by the Université Catholique de Louvain and welcomed 130 participants, with nearly 50% from outside Europe, reflecting the international nature of the meeting. RAID'99, held in Purdue, Indiana, was hosted by CERIAS and welcomed more than 180 participants from academia, government and industry.

RAID 2000 is being locally organized by ONERA in Toulouse, France, in conjunction with ESORICS 2000 . The program committee invites submission of both technical and general interest papers and panels from those interested in formally presenting their ideas during the symposium. Regarding paper submissions, submissions to RAID 2000 can be either a full-length paper or an extended abstract. Full papers are intended for the presentation of mature research results, while extended abstracts are intended for work-in-progress presentations. It is expected that more time will be allocated to full paper presentations. Panel submissions are also sought in the same areas. This year, we are emphasizing the following topic areas:

  1. Assessing, measuring and classifying intrusion-detection systems:
  2. IDS in High Performance and Real-Time Environments:
  3. Vulnerabilities and Attacks
  4. IDS Integration
  5. Innovative Approaches
  6. Practical Considerations

Full papers, extended abstracts and panels which fall into the topic areas outlined above are particularly welcome, although contributions outside those topics may also be of interest.

Full papers must be original contributions, not published or submitted to other conferences. Full papers must be limited to 6000 words, full page figures being counted as 300 words. Each paper must include a short abstract and a list of keywords. Authors are invited to submit full papers electronically in postscript or PDF, as email attachements. The email (in ASCII) should contain the title of the paper, author name(s), affiliations, mailing address and topic category addressed in the paper (if appropriate). Full paper submissions will be published in the RAID proceedings by Springer Verlag in the Lecture Notes in Computer Science series. Authors should follow the instructions provided by Springer Verlag when preparing the manuscript. Deadline for submitting full papers is March 31st, 2000.

Extended abstracts must be original contributions. They must be limited to 1200 words in length and be submitted electronically as ASCII (prefered) or PDF as email attachements. The email (in ASCII) should contain the title of the paper, author name(s), affiliations, mailing address and topic category addressed in the abstract (if appropriate). Both the extended abstract and the slide presentation will be published online on the RAID'2000 website. Deadline for submitting extended abstracts is April 30th, 2000.

Panel proposals must be limited to 400 words in length and be submitted electronically in ASCII (prefered) or PDF.
