DIMVA 2004

July 6-7
Dortmund, Germany

Short Info

The special interest group SIDAR (Security - Intrusion Detection and Response) of the German Informatics Society (GI) engages in the detection and management of information security incidents. In cooperation with the IEEE Task Force on Information Assurance, the German Chapter of the ACM and the University of Dortmund the special interest group SIDAR organizes a workshop on

Detection of Intrusions and Malware & Vulnarability Assessment (DIMVA 2004)

taking place 6/7-07-2004 at Dortmund.

The workshop is intended to give an overview of the state of the technology and practice and brings together the German-speaking players in industry, services, government and research on the topics Intrusion Detection, Malicious Agents (Malware) and Vulnarability Assessment. The presentations aim particularly at results from research, development and integration, relevant applications, new technologies and resulting product developments on a conceptual level. The discussion also embraces legal issues and commercial factors.

The program committee invites the submission of papers in German and English language. Since the workshop brings together german-speaking players, the call for papers and the web site are yet available in German only, except for this short information.

Everybody is invited to contribute papers to the review process. The program committee will review the papers and accepted papers will be presented at the workshop. While DIMVA targets the German-speaking audience, we also welcome papers and presentations in English. But be aware, that German might be the prevalent language at the workshop.
