In succession to the successful annual SIN 2007 - SIN 2020, SIN 2021 provides an international forum for presentation of research and applications of security in information and networks. The SIN 2021 conference will be held online due to the current pandemic and features contributed, as well as invited, papers, special sessions, workshops, and tutorials on theory and practice of security of information and networks. The SIN Conference series has been co-organized by two universities in each of the USA, UK, Russia, Turkey, India, and Australia since 2007. SIN 2021 is hosted by Edinburgh Napier University and sponsored by IEEE UK & Ireland Section, IEEE UK & Ireland Section C Chapter and Hasan Kalyoncu University.
Papers, special sessions, tutorials, and workshops addressing all aspects of security in information and networks are being sought. Researchers and industrial practitioners working on the following and related subjects are especially encouraged. Doctoral students are encouraged to propose papers on ongoing research.
Broad areas of interest in security theory, technology and applications will include, but are not limited to, the following:
The following two paper categories are welcome. Any submission needs to be explicitly marked as “full paper” or “short paper”.
All papers must be original and not simultaneously submitted to another journal or conference. All paper submissions must contain a title, a short abstract, and a list of keywords. All submissions will be subjected to a thorough double‐blind review by at least three reviewers. Submitted papers shall be anonymised and all author names, affiliations, acknowledgements, and obvious traceable references should be eliminated to be eligible for the review process. Authors are also encouraged to propose position papers on practical studies and experiments, critique of existing work, emerging issues, and novel ideas under development. Enterprises and research centres developing, implementing, or using security tools and frameworks are encouraged to propose application / tool demo.
Submitted manuscripts should represent novel research contributions.
All manuscripts will have to be submitted in anonymised form for double-blind review. In double-blind review, neither the author nor the reviewers are aware of each other's identity. Papers that are not properly anonymised may be rejected without review.
To prepare your manuscript under double-blind review rules:
