Call for Papers: IEEE Workshop SIMICE-2017 adjunct to IEEE COMPSAC 2017. The 3rd IEEE International Workshop on Secure Identity Management in the Cloud Environment (SIMICE 2017) adjunct with the 41th IEEE Computer Society International Conference on Computers, Software & Applications (COMPSAC 2017) -- Building Digital Autonomy for a Sustainable World. https://www.computer.org/web/compsac2017
Workshop date: one day (tbd) during COMPSAC week
Goal of the Workshop
While identity management solutions are increasingly migrating to cloud, conventional identity management approaches are facing challenges in trust, security, privacy, omputational efficiency, interoperability, and service reliability in the cloud nvironment. Security concerns are reportedly among the biggest inhibitors holding back the wider adoption of cloud computing in this domain. Secure identity management, required by emerging cloud services as well as existing federated services or newest distributed technologies, is receiving increasing attention from both service providers' and end users' perspectives, in terms of protection of enterprise assets and customers’ privacy in the cloud, respectively. This workshop solicits contributions describing state-of-the-art methodology and technology innovations in the field of secure identity management in the cloud computing environment, encourages experience sharing (both positive and negative ones), and also welcomes disruptive work-in-progress ideas towards future concepts.
The workshop is dedicated to the security and privacy aspects of identity management (IDM) in the cloud. Topics are articulated around several important themes as “concept design”, “enabling technologies”, “federated identities” and “applications”. It is expected they will attract both theoretical and empirical works from the IDM society and the cloud computing society.
Scope of the Workshop
Any submission whose content is relevant to the area of secure identity management in the cloud environment will be considered, but any submission whose subject matter is related to one of the following topics will be particularly welcome. Practically-oriented approaches will also be appreciated.
Workshop Paper Submission
All accepted papers will be published in the electronic proceedings by the IEEE Computer Society. A camera ready paper will be limited to 6 pages (IEEE Conference Proceedings style). Authors must follow COMPSAC Author Guidelines to prepare papers. At least one of the authors of an accepted paper is required to pay full registration fee and present the paper at the workshop in person, in order to enable indexing through INSPEC and EI, and inclusion in the IEEE digital library.
