2014 IEEE Symposium on

Computational Intelligence

in Cyber Security (CICS)

Computational Intelligence constitutes an umbrella of techniques, has proven to be flexible in decision making in dynamic environment. These techniques typically include Fuzzy Logic, Evolutionary Computation, Intelligent Agent Systems, Neural Networks, Cellular Automata, Artificial Immune Systems and other similar computational models. The use of these techniques allowed building efficient online monitoring tools and robust decision support modules, providing cross-linking solutions to different cyber security applications.

In order to protect Internet users from Identity Theft, Phishing, Spam and other cyber infrastructure threats, we need flexible, adaptable and robust cyber defense systems, which can make intelligent decisions (in near real-time) in detecting wide variety of threats and attacks, including active and passive attacks, external attacks and internal misuses, known and unknown attacks, viruses and spam, etc. Computational Intelligent (CI) techniques appear to be promising to enhance cyber security measures, and have been increasingly applied in the area of information security and information assurance. Moreover, the multi-faceted CI approaches appear to provide a new security paradigm to deal with influx of new threats in a large network of computers.


This symposium will cover all the issues, research and development of the state-of-the-art CI-based technologies in solving various computer and information security problems.  CI application areas include, but are not limited to:

  • information assurance, cyber fraud and crime detection
  • security of storage systems, operating systems, and networks
  • intrusion detection, prediction, classification, and response
  • models for survivable, resilient, and self-healing systems
  • sensor network security, web security, wireless security
  • digital forensics, security information visualization
  • sensor fusion and decision support in computer security
  • Security applications and cyber infrastructure protection

We would like to encourage you to submit a paper to SSCI-CICS 2014 and to let your colleagues know about it. We expect to have a great conference, which will certainly benefit even more from your technical participation.

The SSCI-CICS 2014 conference deadlines are as follows:

Papers Due July 15, 2014
Notification to Authors September 5, 2014
Final Papers Due October 5, 2014
