News: AISec 2012, 5th Workshop on Artificial Intelligence and Security

The 2012 ACM Workshop on Artificial Intelligence and Security AISec 2012 will be co-located with CCS - a premier computer security conference - October 16–18, 2012, in Raleigh, NC USA. As the 5th workshop in the series, AISEC 2012 calls for papers on topics related to both AI/learning and security/privacy.

AISec 2011: 4TH ACM Workshop on Artificial Intelligence and Security

in conjunction with the 18th ACM Conference on Computer and Communications Security (CCS). 21 October 2011, SWISSÔTEL, Chicago, IL

The ubiquitous nature of information and communication today is often cited as the cause of many security and privacy problems including identity and reputation management, viruses/worms and phishing/pharming. There is strong evidence, however, that this abundance of information and communication has at least as many security and privacy benefits as costs.

Consider for example, the use of machine learning algorithms to detect network intrusions, crowd-based approaches to anonymous communication and the use of data mining algorithms to determine content sanitization. All of these efforts benefit from recent advances in AI, which have often been driven by increases in the amount of available data.

To fully realize the security and privacy benefits of today's ubiquitous information, the security community needs expertise in the tools and techniques for managing that information, namely, artificial intelligence technology, and the AI community needs an understanding of security and privacy problems. To facilitate an exchange of ideas between these two communities, we are holding the fourth workshop in "AISec" in conjunction with the ACM Conference on Computer and Communications Security (CCS), on the new field of security and privacy solutions that leverage AI technologies. Our full-day workshop will be a mix of technical papers and position papers with ideas for AISec's future.
