RAID 2005
Eighth International Symposium on
Recent Advances in Intrusion Detection
September 7-9, 2005

Bell Harbor International Conference Center
Seattle, Washington, USA

Call for Paper

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

For RAID 2005, we are expanding our historical scope from a focus on intrusion detection to the broader field of intrusion defense. Of particular interest are intrusion tolerant systems and systems for which detection triggers an adaptive response. As in 2004, we welcome papers that address issues related to intrusion defense, including information gathering and monitoring, as a part of a larger, not necessarily purely technical, perspective. For example, the implication of information gathering and detection technologies on enterprises, organisations and authorities, as well as legislative and governing bodies is within scope, but also the impact and restrictions from those bodies on the design and technology. This would include issues such as privacy, risk and emergency management, crisis management, security policies, standardisation and legal issues. We also encourage contributions addressing intrusion defense from more than an enterprise perspective, as well as contributions dealing with securing critical infrastructure.

The RAID 2005 Program Committee invites four types of submissions:

  • Full papers presenting mature research results. Papers accepted for presentation at the Symposium will be included in the RAID 2005 proceedings published by Springer Verlag in its Lecture Notes in Computer Science (LNCS) series. Full papers are limited to 20 pages when formatted according to the instructions provided by Springer Verlag. Papers must include an abstract and a list of keywords.

  • Practical experience reports describing a valuable experience or a case study, such as the design and deployment of a system or actual experience from intrusion detection or network monitoring. These reports are reviewed differently from full papers and do not necessarily include fundamental scientific contributions or new research ideas. Practical experience reports are limited to 12 pages when formatted according to the instructions provided by Springer Verlag. They must include an abstract and a list of keywords.

  • Panel proposals for presenting and discussing hot topics in the field of intrusion detection systems. The panel proposals should include both an outline of the format of the panel and a short rationale for the panel. Panels that include time for general discussion and questions/answers between the panelists and the Symposium attendees are preferred.

  • Poster sessions describing work in progress. Perspective presenters are to submit a brief abstract by August 15, 2005.

All topics related to Intrusion Detection Systems and Technologies are within scope, including their design, use and maintenance, integration, correlation and self-protection, just to mention a few.

With reference to this year's theme and extended scope we also invite papers on the following topics, as they bear on intrusion detection and the general problem of information security: 

Risk assessment and risk management
Intrusion tolerance
Deception systems and honeypots
Vulnerability analysis and management
IDS assessment
IDS survivability
Privacy aspects
Data mining techniques
Visualization techniques

Cognitive approaches
Biological approaches

Case studies
Legal issues
Critical infrastructure protection (CIP)
