Welcome to FPS 2011
We invite researchers and practitioners from all countries working in security, privacy, trustworthy data systems and related areas to participate in the event.
The Foundations & Practice of Security (FPS) workshop was initiated in 2008, following the Canada-France Meeting on Security held at the Simon Fraser University, Vancouver, in December 06-08, 2007. Since then, the FPS workshop has been held annually, alternating Canadian and French locations, including Montreal, Grenoble and Toronto.
The meeting is held in co-operation with MITACS (Mathematics of Information Technology and Complex Systems), a Canadian research network which connects university-based researchers with industry and the public sector.
The objective of the workshop is to present and discuss international research in different areas of theoretical and practical security solutions. The main topics, but not limited to, include:
- Cryptography & Cryptanalysis
- Security in service oriented architectures
- Security in web services
- Security Administration
- Policy-based Security Architectures
- Security of distributed embedded middleware
- Access Control Languages
- Trust Management
- Risk Assessment and Assurance
- Threat Analysis
- Distributed security protocols
- Security of grid computing
- Malware & Botnet Detection
- Protocol Verification
- Privacy & Sensitive Data Management
- Data Mining
- Security of cloud computing
- Side channel attacks
- Monitoring and Auditing
- Privacy in Social Networks
- Information Theoretic Security
- Information Flow
- Security in Ambient Intelligence (AmI) Applications
- Security in Sensor Networks and RFIDs
- Foundations & Practice of Security 2009, Grenoble, June 26-27, 2009

Full Technical Papers should be at most 15 pages (using 11-point font), excluding the bibliography and well-marked appendices. Committee members are not required to read the appendices, so the paper should be intelligible without them. All submissions must be written in English. All papers will be refereed. Accepted papers should be presented at the Workshop. At least one author of each accepted paper must register to the workshop, by the early date indicated by the organizers, and present the paper.
Contributed Talk Abstracts should be at most 2 pages (using 11-point font). Submissions must be written in English. They will be reviewed as oral presentations. Accepted abstract authors will be invited to present their research at the workshop. For those presentations that are meritorious, the Committee will recommend them to submit extended versions for their publication in the revised selected papers post-proceedings. All extended versions will be refereed.
Post-proceedings will be published by Springer in the Lecture Notes in Computer Science (LNCS) series. The submitted paper (in PDF format) should follow the template indicated by Springer (see http://www.springer.de/comp/lncs/authors.html). It must start with a title, a short abstract, and a list of keywords.
Authors must submit their papers by the deadline indicated below, using the EasyChair web site and following the requirements stated there.
Submissions by PhD students as well as controversial ideas are encouraged. Case studies (successful or not) are also encouraged.
