3rd CALL FOR PAPERS IMF 2007 3rd International Conference on IT-Incident Management & IT-Forensics Stuttgart, Germany September 11 - 12, 2007 http://www.imf-conference.org/ mailto:2007@imf-conference.org DEADLINE EXTENSION FOR PAPER SUBMISSIONS TO JUNE 4, 2007 ---------------------------------------------------------------------------

Information technology has become crucial to almost every part of society. IT infrastructures have become critical in the world-wide economy, the financial sector, the health sector, the government's administration, the military, and the educational sector.

Due to its importance the disruption or loss of IT capabilities results in a massive reduction of operability. Hence, IT security is continously gaining importance.

Although security usually gets integrated into the design process of IT systems nowadays, the process of maintaining security in the operation of IT infrastructures still lacks the appropriate attendance in most cases. Especially the capability to manage and respond to IT security incidents and their forensic analysis is established in the rarest cases. The quickly rising number of security incidents worldwide makes the implementation of incident management capabilities essential.

In order to advance the fields of IT-Incident Management and Forensics the special interest-group Security - Intrusion Detection and Response (SIDAR) of the German Informatics Society (GI) organises an annual conference, bringing together experts from throughout the world, to discuss state of the art in the areas of Incident Management and IT-Forensics (IMF). IMF promotes collaboration and exchange of ideas between industry, academia, law-enforcement and other government bodies.

IMF invites to submit:

  • Full papers of up to 20 pages, presenting novel and mature research results.
  • Practice papers of up to 20 pages, describing best practices, case studies, lessons learned, or latest developments in technology.

All submissions must be in English, and in either postscript or PDF format. Authors of accepted papers must ensure that their papers will be presented at the conference. Presentations should be held in English.

Submitted full papers must not substantially overlap papers that have been published or that are simultaneously submitted to a journal or a conference with proceedings.

All submissions will be reviewed by the program committee and papers accepted to be presented at the conference will be included in the conference proceedings.

Details on the electronic submission procedure are provided on the conference Web site at: http://www.imf-conference.org/imf2007/submit.html
