Event description:

Workshop on Security and Privacy in Cloud-based Applications (in conjunction with ARES EU Projects Symposium 2015)
Université Paul Sabatier, Toulouse, France, August 24th – 28th, 2015

Cloud services and cloud-based applications have become increasingly popular in the recent years. Security and privacy of the cloud-based applications have always been major roadblock for wide use of cloud services that involve sensitive data. Therefore this research field attracts a lot of attention from the academia and industry. The aim of the workshop is to provide the environment to exchange ideas and to foster discussions on a broad list of aspects related to privacy and security of cloud-based applications, and to find answers to questions like: How do we design authentication and authorization frameworks for cross-cloud environments, supporting different identity/attribute providers and organizational policies while guaranteeing privacy, security and trust? How can we extend current solutions with higher assurance of claims, trust indicators, policy enforcement mechanisms and processing under encryption techniques to address specific security and confidentiality requirements of large distributed infrastructures? What is the best way to validate practical aspects of the cloud-based applications, such as scalability, efficiency, maturity and usability?

Next to regular sessions with research papers, the workshop will include an invited talk as well as a round table on “Evolution of privacy-preserving authentication and authorization tools: from concepts to deployment“, presenting the results of the FP7 AU2EU project (

The conference topics include, but are not limited to:

- Privacy-preserving Authentication
- Attribute-based Authorization
- Integrated Authentication and Authorization
- Assurance of Claims
- Crypto-based Policy Enforcement
- Attribute-based Encryption
- Secure Data Management
- Key Management
- Trust Management
- Operations under Encryption
- Homomorphic Encryption
- Searchable Encryption
- Privacy-Preserving Data Mining
- Security as a Service
- Big Data Security

The proceedings of ARES 2014, published by Conference Publishing Services (CPS), are available here in the IEEE XPlore Digital Library.
Authors are invited to submit research and application papers according the following guidelines: 8 pages (a maximum of 10 pages is tolerated), two columns, single-spaced, including figures and references, using 10 pt fonts and number each page.
Submitted papers will be carefully evaluated based on originality, significance, technical soundness, presentation and clarity of exposition.
Simultaneous submission of the same work to multiple venues, submission of previously published work, or plagiarism constitutes dishonesty or fraud. ARES, like other scientific and technical conferences and journals, prohibits these practices and may take action against authors who have committed them.
Contact author must provide the following information at the ARES conference system: paper title, authors’ names, affiliations, postal address, phone, fax, and e-mail address of the author(s), about 200-250 word abstract, and about five keywords.
Accepted papers will be given guidelines in preparing and submitting the final manuscript(s) together with the notification of acceptance.
Double blind review: ARES requires anonymized submissions – please make sure that submitted papers contain no author names or obvious self-references.
Details about submission can be found here:
