13th International Conference on Security of Information and Networks (SIN
4-7 November 2020
ONLINE  (Istanbul, Turkey)

Proceedings by ACM Press; all papers will be inserted into the ACM Digital
Library and subsequently indexed by SCOPUS.

In succession to the successful annual SIN 2007 - SIN 2019, the 13th
International Conference on Security of Information and Networks (SIN 2020)
provides an international forum for the presentation of research and
applications of security in information and networks. SIN 2020 conference
features contributed as well as invited papers, special sessions,
workshops, and tutorials on theory and practice of security of information
and networks.

SIN 2020 will feature the following keynote talks:
- Liudmila Babenko, Southern Federal University, Taganrog, Rostov-on-Don,
- Albert Levi, Sabancı University, Turkey.
- Muhammed Ali Aydın, Istanbul University, Turkey

Two prizes will be offered (complements of Kaspersky Labs):
- Best Paper Award
- Best Presentation Award


Kaspersky Labs will offer a workshop/tutorial for the conference


Papers, special sessions, tutorials, and workshops addressing all aspects
of security in information and networks are being sought. Researchers and
industrial practitioners working on the following and related subjects are
especially encouraged: development and realization of cryptographic
solutions, security schemes, new algorithms; critical analysis of existing
approaches; secure information systems, security, privacy, and trust of
blockchain and distributed ledger technologies, secure smart contracts,
consensus mechanisms, especially distributed control and processing
applications, and security in networks; interoperability, service levels,
and quality issues in such systems; information assurance, security, and
public policy; detection and prevention of cybercrimes such as fraud and
phishing; next-generation network architectures, protocols, systems, and
applications; industrial experiences and challenges of the above. Doctoral
students are encouraged to propose papers on ongoing research.

Original papers will be considered; submissions must not substantially
duplicate work that any of the authors has published elsewhere or has
submitted in parallel to any other conference or workshop that has
proceedings. All submitted papers will be reviewed by at least three
members of the program committee judging its originality, significance,
correctness, presentation, and relevance. Authors are also encouraged to
propose position papers on practical studies and experiments, a critique of
existing work, emerging issues, and novel ideas under development.

Enterprises and research centers developing, implementing, or using
security tools and frameworks are encouraged to propose application/tool

Proposals of half-day tutorials on fundamental to advanced subjects
covering practical implementation aspects of security are welcome.

Proposals of special session(s) to be held in the main conference are

Proposals of workshops to be held in conjunction with the conference are
welcome. The theme of a workshop proposal should be closely related to a
specific area of the conference topics.

Broad areas of interest in security theory, technology, and applications
will include, but are not limited to, the following:

* Access control and intrusion detection
* Security of cyber-physical systems
* Autonomous and adaptive security
* Security tools and development platforms
* Computational intelligence techniques in security
* Security ontology, models, protocols & policies
* Computer network defense
* Standards, guidelines, and certification
* Cryptographic techniques and key management
* Security-aware software engineering
* Industrial applications of security
* Trust and privacy
* Information assurance
* Next-generation network architectures
* Malware analysis
* Network security and protocols
* Security challenges in Mobile/Embedded Systems
* Cloud security
* Security, privacy, and trust of blockchain and distributed ledger
* Secure smart contracts
* Consensus mechanisms
* Security Awareness and Education
* Post Quantum Cryptography
* IoT Security and Trust
* <update as needed>


Papers must be submitted electronically via the SIN 2020 Submission Site at Title, author's name(s),
affiliation, mailing address, telephone, fax, and email of the principal
author should be included. The maximum length for the proceedings is 8
pages for a full paper, 4 pages for a short paper, 2 pages for fast
abstract and position statement, and 2 pages for demo and tutorial
proposals. Extra page charges apply for full and short papers. All papers
should be written according to the double-column ACM conference format (

All proposals for organizing workshops, tutorials, demos, and special
sessions are expected at the conference e-mail

All accepted papers will be published by ACM Press in conference
proceedings and uploaded into ACM Digital Library. Extended versions of
selected papers will be invited for possible publication in a special
issue. Each accepted paper must be registered to be included in the
proceedings. Papers not presented during the conference may be removed from
the online proceedings.
