Special Session on Evolutionary Computation and Neural Network for Combating Cybercrime (ECNNCC)
The 2019 IEEE CONGRESS ON EVOLUTIONARY COMPUTATION (IEEE CEC)
10 - 13 JUNE 2019, WELLINGTON, NEW ZEALAND
Special Session Organizers:
- Dr. Manoranjan Mohanty, University of Auckland, New Zealand
- Prof. Ajit Narayanan, Auckland University of Technology, New Zealand
- Dr. Mukesh Prasad, University of Technology Sydney, Australia
Aims and Scope:
The volume of cybercrime is increasing daily with increasing use of the internet for email and social media purposes. The use of neural networks for tackling cybercrime is an active area of research. For example, conventional neural network-based solutions have been proposed to detect image tampering, source camera attribution of an anonymous crime image, explicit content detection, virus detection, etc. Recently, researchers are focusing more on unsupervised solutions. New types of cybercrimes are also emerging (e.g., deepfake video) which may, in turn, require new approaches. Interestingly, the role of evolutionary computing in tackling cybercrime is relatively under explored.
This special session aims to bring together researchers from both academia and industry in the application of evolutionary computation and neural networks for combating cybercrime. This session also will welcome research which focuses on the risk of a neural network for spreading new kind of cybercrimes (e.g., deepfake videos) and evolutionary computing for creating new types of malware (e.g., polymorphic and metamorphic viruses). The session will attract researchers working in cybersecurity, evolutionary computation, and neural networks. Of particular interest will be research that combines evolutionary computing with neural network approaches.
The main topics of this special session include, but are not limited to, the following:
- Malware detection using neural networks and evolutionary computation
- Internet fraud detection and prediction using neural networks and evolutionary computation
- Intrusion detection using neural networks and evolutionary computation
- Digital rights management using neural networks and evolutionary computation
- Explicit content filtering using neural networks and evolutionary computation
- Application of convolutional neural networks for multimedia security
- Image and video forensics using convolutional neural networks
- Cybercrime risk due to neural networks (e.g., deepfake)
- Digital forensics for detecting neural network-based fraud
