CMS'2010 is the 11th Conference in the “Communications and Multimedia Security" series. The series is a joint effort of IFIP Technical Committees TC6 (Communication Systems) and TC11 (Security and Privacy Protection in Information Processing Systems).

The previous conference was held in Crete, Greece in 2006, and the organizers intend to resume the thread of annual CMS-conferences for CMS'2010. The size of the programme committee, consisting of international experts in this field, proves that the research community shares this desire.

The conference is organized by the Department Secure Information Systems of the Upper Austria University of Applied Sciences, School of Informatics/Communications & Media, Campus Hagenberg and will be located at the Campus of the University of Applied Sciences in Linz, Upper Austria.

The conference provides a forum for engineers and scientists in information security. Both state-of-the-art issues and practical experiences as well as new trends in these areas will be once more the focus of interest just like at preceding conferences.

This year, the conference will address in particular security and privacy issues in mobile contexts, web services (including social networking) and ubiquitous environments.

We solicit papers describing original ideas and research results on topics that include, but are not limited to:

  • applied cryptography
  • biometrics
  • secure documents and archives
  • multimedia systems security
  • digital watermarking
  • distributed DRM policies
  • attack resistant rendering engines
  • adaptive anomaly detection
  • censorship resistance
  • risk management
  • mobility and security/privacy
  • mobile identities
  • privacy enhanced identity management
  • security/privacy policies and preferences
  • social networks security/privacy
  • security/privacy in geo-localised applications
  • security/privacy in VoIP
  • web services security
  • SOA security
  • ubiquitous and ambient computing security
  • cloud computing security
  • wireless and ad hoc network security
  • RFID tags and sensor nodes security
