5th ACM International Workshop on Security and Privacy Analytics

(IWSPA 2019)


5th ACM International Workshop on Security and Privacy Analytics 2019

Co-located with ACM CODASPY 2019 at Dallas, TX, USA

Workshop Date: Wednesday, March 27, 2019

Increasingly, sophisticated techniques from machine learning, data mining, statistics and natural language processing are being applied to challenges in security and privacy fields. However, experts from these areas have no medium where they can meet and exchange ideas so that strong collaborations can emerge, and cross-fertilization of these areas can occur. Moreover, current courses and curricula in security do not sufficiently emphasize background in these areas and students in security and privacy are not emerging with deep knowledge of these topics.

Hence, we propose a workshop that will address the research and development efforts in which analytical techniques from machine learning, data mining, natural language processing and statistics are applied to solve security and privacy challenges (“security analytics”). Submissions of papers related to methodology, design, techniques and new directions for security and privacy that make significant use of machine learning, data mining, statistics or natural language processing are welcome. Furthermore, submissions on educational topics and systems in the field of security analytics are also highly encouraged.
