About SNDS-2014

Networking and distributed systems provide the infrastructure for computation, communication and storage linking a heterogeneous and possibly great number of people, hardware devices, and software processes. Security has become more complicated with the expanded use and networking of personal computers. Nowadays, distributed systems are very popular and extensively used throughout the world. With the widespread adoption of distributed systems, there are several security issues that can hurt the enterprises and user communities in an enormous manner. To provide tolerable protection for these systems, the security technologies must respond to more and more multifaceted issues and malicious behaviors. However, finding effective ways to guard these systems is challenging even with the state-of-the-art technology and trained professionals.

The Second International Conference on Security in Computer Networks and Distributed Systems (SNDS-2014) aims to provide the most relevant opportunity to bring together students, researchers and practitioners from both academia and industry to present their research results and development activities in the field of security in computer networks and distributed systems. The technical program of the conference will include tutorials, regular technical sessions, workshops, special sessions, demos and plenary/keynote speeches.

Conference proceedings will be published by Springer in Communications in Computer and Information Science Series(CCIS), ISSN: 1865:0929. CCIS is abstracted/indexed in ISI Proceedings, Scopus, EI and DBLP. The contents will be included in the CCIS electronic book series hosted in the SpringerLink digital library.

SNDS-2014 is organised by Indian Institute of Information Technology and Management-Kerala (IIITM-K), Thiruvananthapuram (Trivandrum), India in association with Kerala State Council for Science, Technology and Environment (KSCSTE) and ACM Trivandrum Professional Chapter.
