3-3-24 (2015-08-24) 4th International Workshop on Cyber Crime (IWCC 2015) (extended deadline)

4th International Workshop on Cyber Crime (IWCC 2015) co-located with 10th International
Conference on
Availability, Reliability and Security (ARES 2015)

Universite Paul Sabatier
Toulouse, France

All accepted papers will be published in a special issue of the Security and
Communication Networks,
Wiley or EURASIP Journal on Information Security.

IWCC Overview

Today's world's societies are becoming more and more dependent on open networks such as
the Internet -
where commercial activities, business transactions and government services are realized.
This has led to
the fast development of new cyber threats and numerous information security issues which
are exploited
by cyber criminals. The inability to provide trusted secure services in contemporary
computer network
technologies has a tremendous socio-economic impact on global enterprises as well as

Moreover, the frequently occurring international frauds impose the necessity to conduct
investigation of facts spanning across multiple international borders. Such examination
is often subject
to different jurisdictions and legal systems. A good illustration of the above being the
Internet, which
has made it easier to perpetrate traditional crimes. It has acted as an alternate avenue
for the
criminals to conduct their activities, and launch attacks with relative anonymity. The
complexity of the communications and the networking infrastructure is making
investigation of the crimes
difficult. Traces of illegal digital activities are often buried in large volumes of
data, which are
hard to inspect with the aim of detecting offences and collecting evidence. Nowadays, the
digital crime
scene functions like any other network, with dedicated administrators functioning as the

This poses new challenges for law enforcement policies and forces the computer societies
to utilize
digital forensics to combat the increasing number of cybercrimes. Forensic professionals
must be fully
prepared in order to be able to provide court admissible evidence. To make these goals
forensic techniques should keep pace with new technologies.

The aim of 4th International Workshop on Cyber Crime is to bring together the research
provided by the researchers from academia and the industry. The other goal is to show the
research results in the field of digital forensics and to present the development of
tools and
techniques which assist the investigation process of potentially illegal cyber activity.
We encourage
prospective authors to submit related distinguished research papers on the subject of
both: theoretical
approaches and practical case reviews.

The workshop will be accessible to both non-experts interested in learning about this
area and experts
interesting in hearing about new research and approaches.

Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:
Cyber crimes: evolution, new trends and detection Cyber crime related investigations
Computer and
network forensics Digital forensics tools and applications Digital forensics case studies
and best
practices Privacy issues in digital forensics Network traffic analysis, traceback and
Incident response, investigation and evidence handling Integrity of digital evidence and
investigations Identification, authentication and collection of digital evidence
techniques and methods Watermarking and intellectual property theft Social networking
Steganography/steganalysis and covert/subliminal channels Network anomalies detection
Novel applications
of information hiding in networks Political and business issues related to digital
forensics and anti-
forensic techniques


Authors are invited to submit Papers will be accepted based on peer review
(3 per paper) and should contain original, high quality work. All papers must be written
in English.
Authors are invited to submit their papers according the following guidelines: two
columns, single-
spaced, including figures and references, using 10 pt fonts and number each page.

Authors are invited to submit Regular Papers (maximum 8 pages) via EasyChair
( Papers accepted by the workshop will
be published
in the Conference Proceedings published by IEEE Computer Society Press. Failure to adhere
to the page
limit and formatting requirements will be grounds for rejection.

Submission of a paper implies that should the paper be accepted, at least one of the
authors will
register and present the paper in the conference.
