The increasing reliance of today’s military, civil and commercial
infrastructure on computing has made it an easy target for those who aim to
disrupt normalcy. This has underlined cyber-security to be one of the most
urgent challenges facing the global community.  Current cyber-security
challenges cross a range of disciplines and fields to include businesses,
governmental policies, risk management, military strategy, and law.
Solutions require the use of real time, disparate knowledge and information
for creating a fitting response to the threatening events with a credible
authorization system utilizing the available contextual, and geospatial
information it has about the events and involved actors.

Semantic Web technologies with a Web of interlinked data aim to facilitate
a global platform for data and information integration as well as for
intelligent search and querying. They seek to transform the current
document and structure oriented data into more meaningful and expert
knowledge, which can be accessed in an efficient and automated manner.

The aim of this track would be to explore the usage of Semantics in
developing Information Security models for data and information in critical
enterprise infrastructure. The scope would cover a wide range of topics to
include underlying Software Assurance, Cyber Security, Data Privacy,
Semantic Models, Security policies with data reasoning and many more. The
track is open to both research and industry contributions, in terms of
Regular papers, Posters, Work in progress, Systems implemented and lessons
learn, Technical/marketing/business presentations, Demos, Tutorials, and



Topics of interest for this track may include but are not limited to:

- Trustworthy Infrastructures and Services

- Smart and Secure Information Access and Querying with Semantic Data

- Policy/Standards driven architectures for Semantic Web

- Semantic Web Security & Privacy

- Privacy-preserving data management systems

- Security in Digital Health Care

- Ontologies, Reasoning and representation languages for security models

- Engineering of Semantic Web applications

- Methods for linking, integrating and federating Data on the Web

- Other related topics
