7th SETOP International Workshop on Autonomous and Spontaneous Security
                11th September 2014, Wroclaw, Poland


Autonomous and Spontaneous security focuses  on the dynamics of system behaviour
in  response  to  threats,  their  detection,  characterisation,  diagnosis  and
mitigation in particular through  architectural and behavioural reconfiguration.
Such approaches are  needed in Embedded Systems, Pervasive  Computing, and Cloud
environments,  which  bridge the  physical,  social,  and computing  worlds  and
challenge traditional  security provisions from different  perspectives. Systems
must  be  agile  and  continue  to   operate  in  the  presence  of  compromise,
introspective and self-protecting  rather than just hardened,  resilient to more
complex threats  yet more vulnerable  as they are physically  accessible, widely
heterogeneous and need to integrate long-term legacy components.

Ensuring their  resilience and protecting  such systems at scale  requires novel
solutions across  a broad spectrum  of computational and  resource environments,
that  integrate  techniques from  different  areas  including security,  network
management,   machine  learning,   knowledge  representation,   control  theory,
stochastic analysis and software engineering amongst others.

SETOP invites  submissions of novel  research results and  practical experiences
relevant to  autonomous and  spontaneous security  approaches including  but not
limited  to  the   list  below.  We  are  looking  for   contributions  to  both
technologies application areas.

Examples for Relevant Application areas:

- Cloud Environments
- Critical Infrastructures
- Vehicular Networks
- Mobile Computing
- Mobile Ad-Hoc Networks
- Wireless Sensor Networks
- Personal Area Networks
- Internet of Things

Examples of Relevant Technologies / Methodologies:

- Intrusion and Compromise detection and characterisation
- Anomaly detection and diagnosis
- Continuous Authentication
- Dynamic re-perimeterisation
- Autonomous Key-Management
- Context-aware security adaptation
- Risk assessment at run-time
- Trust and Reputation
- System resilience and Survivability
- Measures and Metrics of system health and resilience
- Proactive vs. Reactive Security Strategies
- Synthesis and Evaluation of response strategies
- Data centric self-protection
- Bio-inspired models for security
- Self-Organisation

The event will be  held in conjunction with ESORICS 2014  and hosted in Wroclaw,
historical  capital of  Silesia, which  at various  times has  been part  of the
Kingdom of Poland, Bohemia, the Austrian Empire, Prussia, and Germany.

Submissions Guidelines:
The proceedings  will be published by  Springer in the LNCS  series. Submissions
in English, of at  most 15 pages and complying with the  LNCS formatting must be
submitted before May 21  at the URL below. At least one  author of each accepted
paper   must    register   and    present   the    paper   at    the   workshop.

Important Dates:

- Paper Submission: June 16, 2014
- Author Notification: July 16, 2014
- Camera Ready Version: August 7, 2014
