The Seventh International Workshop on Security in Cloud Computing (SCC)

To be held in conjunction with the 14th ACM Asia Conference on Computer and Communications Security (ASIACCS)
July 7-12, Auckland, New Zealand

Call for Papers

Cloud computing has emerged as today's most exciting computing paradigm shift in information technology. With the efficient sharing of abundant computing resources in the cloud, users can economically enjoy the on-demand high quality cloud applications and services without committing large capital outlays locally. While the cloud benefits are compelling, its unique attributes also raise many security and privacy challenges in areas such as data security, recovery, privacy, access control, trusted computing, as well as legal issues in areas such as regulatory compliance, auditing, and many others. To implement secure and privacy-aware environments which can provide on-demand computing and high-quality service for cloud users is extremely urgent.

Building on the success of six versions of the International Workshop on Security in Cloud Computing (SCC), held often with ACM AsiaCCS, we plan this year to organize this workshop again for the seventh edition. This workshop is intended to bring together researchers, developers, and practitioners in security, privacy and mobile computing communities. We will encourage submissions on all theoretical and practical aspects, as well as experimental studies of deployed systems.

Authors are invited to submit either Research Papers or Position Papers or both. Position Papers that define new problems in cloud computing security or provide visions and clarifications of cloud computing security are solicited. Regular Research Papers that present novel research results on security and privacy in cloud computing are also welcome.

Important Dates (Tentative)

Paper Submission Due: (March 10, 2019) April 3, 2019 GMT (Extended)
Acceptance Notification: April 25, 2019
Camera-Ready Due: April 30, 2019
