The ACM Conference on Computer and Communications Security (CCS) is the flagship annual conference of the Special Interest Group on Security, Audit and Control (SIGSAC) of the Association for Computing Machinery (ACM). The conference brings together information security researchers, practitioners, developers, and users from all over the world to explore cutting-edge ideas and results. It provides an environment to conduct intellectual discussions. From its inception, CCS has established itself as a high-standard research conference in its area.

Nations, corporations, and individuals constantly need to reason about how to protect their sensitive assets in order to ensure economic growth and prosperity. Decision making for security and privacy of infrastructure and information needs a scientific framework that can handle challenges arising from modern-day heterogeneous, dynamic, and large-scale systems.
The International Conference on Risks and Security of Internet and Systems 2017 will be the 12th in a series dedicated to security issues in Internet-related applications, networks and systems. Internet has become essential for the exchange of information between user groups and organizations from different backgrounds and with different needs and objectives. These users are exposed to increasing risks regarding security and privacy, due to the development of more and more sophisticated online attacks, the growth of Cyber Crime, etc.
The 20th International Symposium on Research in Attacks, Intrusions and Defenses (RAID 2017), previously known as Recent Advances in Intrusion Detection, aims at bringing together leading researchers and practitioners from academia, government, and industry to discuss novel research contributions related to computer and information security. RAID 2017 will be held in Atlanta, Georgia on September 18-20, 2017
ESORICS is the annual European research event in Computer Security. The Symposium started in 1990 and has been held in several European countries, attracting a wide international audience from both the academic and industrial communities. Papers offering novel research contributions in computer security are solicited for submission to the Symposium. The primary focus is on original, high quality, unpublished research and implementation experiences. We encourage submissions of papers discussing industrial research and development
The International Conference on Availability, Reliability and Security (“ARES”) will bring together researchers and practitioners in the area of dependability. ARES will highlight the various aspects of security - with special focus on the crucial linkage between availability, reliability and security.
ARES aims at a full and detailed discussion of the research issues of security as an integrative concept that covers amongst others availability, safety, confidentiality, integrity, maintainability and security in the different fields of applications.
New computing paradigms, such as cloud computing, big data and the Internet of Things open new horizons to businesses by making possible the provision of high quality services all over the world. All these developments ultimately aim at improving our quality of life, at making it easier to generate wealth, and at ensuring that businesses remain competitive in the global marketplace.
With the rapid development and increasing complexity of computer systems and communication networks, user requirements for trust, security and privacy are becoming more and more demanding. Therefore, there is a grand challenge that traditional security technologies and measures may not meet user requirements in open, dynamic, heterogeneous, mobile, wireless, and distributed computing environments. As a result, we need to build systems and networks in which various applications allow users to enjoy more comprehensive services while preserving trust, security and privacy at the same time.
Cloud computing is transforming the way large-scale computation is performed. Dynamic scalability or -elasticity- provided by the cloud make high-performance computing accessible to everyone. However, cloud computing introduces new challenges with respect to security and privacy. Although virtualization addresses some of these concerns, it has a significant impact on performance: the actual gains in performance depend heavily on the predictability of physical and virtualized resources.
