VizSEC 2005 in Minneapolis


CCS Workshop on Visualization and Data Mining for Computer Security


October 29, 2004 
George W. Johnson Center at George Mason University, Fairfax, VA, USA

Held in conjunction with the Eleventh ACM Conference on Computer and Communications Security

Registration is available via the ACM CCS web site


Information about security on large and complex computer networks is high volume, heterogeneous, distributed, and dynamic over time. Of interest to this workshop are two complementary methods to process high-dimensional data into knowledge: visualization and data mining. Visualization represents high-dimension security data in 2D/3D graphics and animations intended to facilitate quick inferences for situational awareness and focusing of attention on potential security events. Data mining focuses on algorithms to accurately detect patterns in high-dimension security data representing unauthorized system access or computer network attacks. Papers with demonstrated results will be given priority. A list of potential topics includes but is not limited to the following:
