Track Overview

Cyber Security is an interdisciplinary area that focuses on maintaining and reducing risks to the confidentiality, integrity, and availability of information and resources in computer and network systems.  The complexity of modern systems and the diversity of threat vectors both social and technical, require intelligent, adaptive, multimodal solutions for which artificial intelligence (AI) approaches are well suited.

This track will focus on identifying state of the art artificial intelligence based solutions to problems related to cyber security.  This track will be of interest to researchers and leading edge practitioners in academia, industry, and government agencies concerned with computer and network security.

Original high quality papers are sought for leading edge research and applications relating to the application of AI and Cyber Security. Topics of interest may include but are not limited to:

  • Machine Learning for Intrusion Detection Systems

  • NLP for text analysis in Cyber Security

  • Video and CCTV semantic analysis for terrorist or criminal action detection

  • AI & Biometrics

  • AI & SCADA systems security

  • AI & Network Systems security

  • AI & Embedded Systems security

  • AI in Forensic Analysis

  • AI & Cloud Computing security

Note: We invite original papers (i.e. work not previously submitted, in submission, or to be submitted to another conference during the reviewing process).

Submission Guidelines

Interested authors should format their papers according to AAAI formatting guidelines. The papers should be original work (i.e., not submitted, in submission, or submitted to another conference while in review). Papers should not exceed 6 pages (4 pages for a poster) and are due by November 19, 2012. For FLAIRS-26, the 2013 conference, the reviewing is a double blind process. Fake author names and affiliations must be used on submitted papers to provide double-blind reviewing. Papers must be submitted as PDF through the EasyChair conference system, which can be accessed through the main conference web site (http://www.flairs-26.info/). Note: do not use a fake name for your EasyChair login - your EasyChair account information is hidden from reviewers. Authors should indicate the AI and Cyber Security special track for submissions. The proceedings of FLAIRS will be published by the AAAI. Authors of accepted papers will be required to sign a form transferring copyright of their contribution to AAAI. FLAIRS requires that there be at least one full author registration per paper.
