Subject: [IMF 2013] 2nd Call for Papers

Dear all,

for your information.

Please excuse possible cross postings.

                         2nd CALL FOR PAPERS

                               IMF 2013

                      7th International Conference
           on IT Security Incident Management & IT Forensics

                        March 12th - 14th, 2013
                          Nuremberg,  Germany

Conference Background
Today IT security is an integral aspect in operating IT-Systems.  Yet,
despite high-end precautionary measures taken, not every attack or
security mishap can be prevented and hence incidents will go on
happening.  In such cases forensic capabilities in investigating
incidents in both technical and legal aspects are paramount.  Thus,
capable incident response and forensic procedures have gained essential
relevance in IT infrastructure operations and there is ample need for
research and standardization in this area.

In law enforcement IT forensics is an important branch and its
significance constantly increases since IT has become an essential part
in almost every aspect of daily life. IT systems produce traces and
evidence in many ways that play a more and more relevant role in
resolving cases.

Conference Goals
The IMF conference provides a platform for experts from throughout the
world to present and discuss recent technical and methodical advances in
the fields of IT security incident response and management and IT
forensics.  It shall enable collaboration and exchange of ideas between
industry (both as users and solution providers), academia,
law-enforcement and other government bodies.

Conference Topics
The scope of IMF 2013 is broad and includes, but is not limited to the
following areas:
IT Security Incident Response
  * Incident Response Procedures and Methods
  * Incident Response Formats and Standardization 
  * Tools Supporting Incident Response
  * Incident Analysis
  * Information Sources, Information Exchange, Communities
  * Dealing with Vulnerabilities (Vulnerability Response)
  * Monitoring and Early Warning
  * Incident Response in Non-Standard Environments (e.g. Embedded 
  * Education and Training
  * Organizations
  * Legal and Enterprise Aspects (Jurisdiction, Applicable Laws 
    and Regulations)

IT Forensics
  * Trends and Challenges in IT Forensics
  * Application of Forensic Techniques in New Areas
  * Tools and Technology in Procedures for IT Forensics
  * Methods for the Gathering, Handling, Processing and Analysis of 
    Digital Evidence
  * Evidence Protection in IT Environments
  * IT Forensics in Non-Standard Environments (e.g. Embedded Systems)
  * Source-Determination and Manipulation Detection (e.g. Multimedia
  * Standardization in IT Forensics
  * Education and Training
  * Organizations
  * Legal and Enterprise Aspects (Jurisdiction, Applicable Laws 
    and Regulations)

Submission Details
IMF invites to submit full papers of up to 20 pages, presenting novel
and mature research results as well as practice papers, describing best

for workshops, discussions and presentations on practical methods and
challenges are also welcome.

All submissions must be written in English (see below), and either in
postscript or PDF format. Submissions must be anonymized. Authors of
