Symposium November 15, 2013


The 2nd International Symposium on Grey-Hat Hacking - aka GreHack 2013 - will gather researchers and practitioners from academia, industry, and government to discuss new advances in research related to any area of computer and information security.

All topics related to vulnerability discovery are within scope. In addition, topics of interest also include but are not limited to:

  • Reverse Engineering and Obfuscation
  • Vulnerability Discovery, Analysis and Exploit Automation
  • Embedded Systems Security, including Smartphone Security
  • Hardware Vulnerabilities
  • Malware Creation, Analysis and Prevention
  • Web Application Security
  • Network Exfiltration
  • Intrusion Detection and Prevention
  • Security and Privacy in Cloud, P2P Networks
  • Penetration Testing
  • Disclosure and Ethics
  • Digital Forensics
  • Applied Cryptography and Cryptanalysis

We encourage original and groundbreaking submissions, demonstrations, release of a new open source/non-commercial tool, and interaction with the audience. Each submission will be reviewed by at least three members of the Program Committee.

Submissions Types

GreHack 2013 will consider following types of submissions:

  • Full research papers presenting mature and novel research results. Their total length should range from 10 to 16 pages.
  • Short Papers/Extended Abstracts describing novel ideas of potential interest to the security research community. Their total length should range from 4 to 8 pages.

Papers accepted by the Program Committee will be presented at GreHack 2013. Each paper must include an abstract and a list of keywords, and be formatted in a single-column format, use at least 11-point fonts, and have reasonable margins. Templates are available: Latex, and Word. Total length includes the bibliography and any appendices. More details about the formatting can be found in the webpage Springer Information for LNCS Authors. GreHack does not require anonymized submissions, thus authors and affiliations must be mentioned. For accepted papers, at least one of the authors must attend the conference and present the paper. Papers must neither have been previously accepted for publication nor submitted in another conference or journal with formal proceedings. Industry conferences such as BlackHat do not have formal proceedings.
