Call For Papers - RAID 2001
Fourth International Symposium on
Recent Advances in Intrusion Detection

October 10-12, 2001
Davis, CA, USA

This symposium, the fourth in an annual series, brings together leading figures from academia, government, and industry to discuss state-of-the-art intrusion detection technologies and issues from the research and commercial perspectives. The RAID International Symposium series is intended to further advances in intrusion detection by promoting the exchange of ideas in a broad range of topics.

RAID'98, held in Louvain-la-Neuve, Belgium, was the first in an anticipated annual series of international Symposia that has brought together leading figures from academia, government and industry to ponder the current state of intrusion detection technologies and paradigms from the research and commercial perspectives. More than 130 participants attended RAID'98, 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, hosted by ONERA in Toulouse, France, welcomed more than 130 participants from academia (50%), government (20%) and industry (30%), 40% coming from USA and Canada, 60% from Europe. After Louvain-la-Neuve, Purdue and Toulouse, RAID is being locally organized in 2001 by University of California at Davis.

The RAID'2001 program committee invites submission of both technical and general interest papers and panels from those interested in formally presenting their ideas during the symposium. RAID'2001 will welcome full papers, short papers and panel proposals. Full papers are intended for presenting mature research results, and short ones for work-in-progress presentations. We also seek panel submissions in the same areas.

The following sorts of topics are within scope:

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

RAID submissions are peer-reviewed. Full papers will be published by Springer Verlag in its Lecture Notes in Computer Science (LNCS) series. A distinct publication of short papers is also planned.
