We are soliciting innovative submissions on applying pertinent areas of natural-language-related web intelligence to new and existing issues in information assurance and security. Contributions from closely related areas are welcome. Information assurance and security topics may range from web security per se, with its trust, deception detection, and credibility concerns (as applied to text)—to counterintelligence, preemptive cyber attack detection, and disinformation as part of cyber warfare. The workshop goal is to bring together researchers and practitioners in the two areas, thus creating a multidisciplinary atmosphere and providing a new and exciting testing ground for web intelligence, while contributing at the same time to the scientific foundation of cyber security.
Paper submissions should be limited to a maximum of 4 pages in the IEEE 2-column format.
The areas of interest include, but are not limited to:
