<Call for Papers>

Security and privacy have been the major concern when people design
computer networks and systems. In recent years, there has been
significant increase in network and system attacks, such as frauds,
distributed denial of service, viruses, worms, spyware, and malware,
etc, causing huge economical and social damage. To deal with rapidly
evolving threats today and more intelligent and automatic threats in the
future, we urgently need new security systems, at all times and in
real-time, to protect the networks and systems, without causing
performance penalty to normal operations. 
Multi-core processors represent a major evolution in computing hardware
technology. Multi-core provides an application with more processing
power from the hardware perspective. However, there are still
significant software design challenges that must be overcome before the
vision of real-time defense system can be realised. The difficulty is
not in building multi-core hardware, but in concurrently programming
security systems in a way that lets them benefit from the continued
growth in CPU performance. Building such a multi-core supported security
system faces significant challenges. These challenges need to be
addressed under joint efforts from different areas such as concurrent
and parallel computing, network security, computer architecture,
computer communications, and others.


Suggested topics include, but are not limited to:
*	Architectures in Distributed Network Defense Systems 
*	Benchmark, Analysis and Evaluation of Parallel Security Systems
*	Concurrent Access Control and Trust Management
*	Concurrent and Parallel Network Forensics
*	Concurrent and Parallel Simulations and Tools
*	Concurrent Identity Management and Authentication
*	Distributed Attack Systems and Mechanisms
*	Distributed Denial-of-Service Attacks and Countermeasures
*	High Performance Security Systems
*	Implementation, Deployment and Management of Parallel Security
*	Large-scale Distributed Attacks and Defense
*	Parallelized Defense against Viruses, Worms, and Other Malicious
*	Parallel Intrusion Detection/Prevention Systems 
*	Parallel Issues in P2P systems and Grid Systems Security
*	Parallel Issues in Wireless Networks Security
*	Theories in Concurrent and Parallel Defense Systems

<Submission Guideline>

Papers must be clearly presented in English. The paper should be
formatted according to the "Instructions to Authors" in CCPE website and
submitted to Manuscript Central through Enter the "Running Head" as
MCNSS2008 special issue. Submitted papers must not substantially overlap
with papers that have been published or that are simultaneously
submitted to a journal or a conference with proceedings. 
Papers are invited reporting original results and experience. The
selection will be based on their originality, timeliness, significance,
relevance, and clarity of presentation.
