                  Sixth International Conference on
    Detection of Intrusions and Malware & Vulnerability Assessment

                      Organized by GI SIG SIDAR
                         In Cooperation with
      IEEE Computer Society Task Force on Information Assurance

                             Milan, Italy
                          June / July, 2009

The annual  DIMVA conference serves  as a premier forum  for advancing
the state  of the art  in intrusion detection, malware  detection, and
vulnerability   assessment.    Each   year   DIMVA   brings   together
international  experts  from  academia,  industry  and  government  to
present and discuss novel research  in these areas. DIMVA is organized
by  the special  interest  group Security  -  Intrusion Detection  and
Response  (SIDAR)  of  the   German  Informatics  Society  (GI).   The
conference  proceedings are  planned to  appear in  Springer's Lecture
Notes in Computer Science (LNCS) series.

DIMVA solicits  submission of high-quality,  original scientific work.
This year we invite two types of paper submissions:

* Full  papers, presenting  novel and  mature research  results.  Full
  papers  are   limited  to  20  pages,  prepared   according  to  the
  instructions provided  below. They will  be reviewed by  the program
  committee, and  papers accepted  for presentation at  the conference
  will be included in the proceedings.

* Short  papers  (extended   abstracts),  presenting  original,  still
  ongoing work  that has not yet  reached the maturity  required for a
  full paper. Short papers are limited to 10 pages, prepared according
  to the  instructions provided below.  They will also be  reviewed by
  the program  committee, and papers accepted for  presentation at the
  conference will be included  in the proceedings (containing Extended
  Abstract in the title).

DIMVA's scope includes, but is not restricted to the following areas:

* Intrusion Detection
  + Approaches
  + Insider detection
  + Applications to business level fraud
  + Implementations
  + Prevention and response
  + Result correlation and cooperation
  + Evaluation
  + Potentials and limitations
  + Operational experiences
  + Legal and social aspects

* Malware Detection
  + Techniques
  + Acquisition of specimen
  + Detection and analysis
  + Automated behavior model generation
  + Early warning
  + Prevention and containment
  + Trends and upcoming risks
  + Forensics and recovery
  + Economic aspects

* Vulnerability Assessment

  + Vulnerabilities
  + Vulnerability detection and analysis
  + Vulnerability prevention
  + Classification and evaluation
  + Situational awareness

DIMVA 2009 particularly encourages papers that discuss applications of
intrusion  detection methods  for  fraud detection  in business  level
processes and composite Web Services.

Paper Submission

All papers  must be  submitted electronically in  PDF format  via the
conference Web  site. Submissions must be formatted  according to the
instructions provided by Springer Verlag.

Submitted  papers  must be  in  English  and  must not  substantially
overlap   work  that   has  been   published  before,   or   that  is
simultaneously  in  submission to  a  journal  or  a conference  with
proceedings.   Simultaneous  submission,  submission   of  previously
published work, and plagiarism  constitute dishonesty or fraud. DIMVA
prohibits  these practices  and may  take appropriate  action against
authors who have committed them.

For accepted papers, it is required  that at least one of the authors
attends the conference to  present the paper. Presentations must also
be held in English.

Details about the electronic submission procedure will be provided on
the conference Web site by end of January 2009.  Authors of  accepted
papers must follow the  Springer LNCS guidelines for the  preparation
of camera-ready copies. Details of the  process will be  provided  to
the authors in time.

Rump session

As in previous  years, DIMVA 2009 will hold a  Rump Session: a series
of short  and entertaining talks  where attendees can  present recent
research results,  work in progress,  or other topics of  interest to
the community.  Please contact  the Rump Session Chair for submission

Sponsorship Opportunities

We solicit  interested organizations to  serve as sponsors  for DIMVA
2009; please contact the  sponsorship chair for information regarding
