The International Symposium on the
Future of Security Controls (FSC 2018)
Call For Papers:
Fifth International Conference on Software Defined
Barcelona, Spain. April 23-26, 2018
Software applications continue to evolve with more
functionalities, complex structures and interactions with
users. Security risks continue to evolve as well in both
quantity in the same domains as well new types and ways on how
to break into software applications, websites, databases, etc.
Software Defined Networking (SDN) evolves in the recent years
to coin several concepts related to programmable networks.
Such technology trend (of programming and automating more and
more features) is not only a trend in software applications.
For example, monitoring the car manufacturing industry, we can
see that recent car models have more automated programmable
features in comparison with their earlier models. Same thing
can be applicable to most other engineering products. SDN
brings security opportunities to change the way security
controls (e.g. firewalls, Intrusion Detection Systems IDS,
etc.) are developed and enforced. They also bring security
challenges related to SDN architecture or any changes that can
be directly or indirectly related to SDN. Security Issues and
Software Defined Networking: FSC will focus on issues related
to SDN security challenges as well as opportunities.
Researchers are encouraged to submit original research
contributions in all major areas, which include, but not
Topics of interest:
· SDN and network design.
· SDN controllers and applications vulnerabilities.
· SDN and access control issues.
· Future programmable firewalls.
· Autonomous firewalls and IDS/IPS.
· SDN and wireless security issues.
· Virtualization and cloud security.
· SDN and security in data centers.
· SDN and security in education.
· SDN and vehicular communication security challenges and

Instructions for Authors
Prospective authors are invited to submit full papers of up to
6 pages, strictly following the IEEE Proceedings Templates.
Submitted papers will be peer-reviewed and prospective authors
are expected to present their papers at the conference. The
papers that are accepted and presented at the conference will
appear in conference proceedings and will be submitted for
IEEE. At least one author of each accepted submission must
attend the workshop and that every workshop participant must
register and present the paper. Please submit your paper in
PDF format via the electronic submission system
