Special Session


Machine Learning in Information and Communication System Security

13-15 Dec. 2009, Miami, Florida, USA




Information and Communication System (I&CS) security increase all the time in diversity as well as in quantity because of continuous threats encountered in many new forms. In order to protect I&CSs, new approaches, methods, techniques, technologies and concepts are always required.


Advances in Machine Learning (ML) provide new challenges and solutions to the security vulnerabilities encountered in applications. Machine Learning (ML) techniques have found widespread applications in I&CS security. Many ML techniques, approaches, algorithms, methods and tools are extensively used by security experts.


The aim of this special session on Information and Communication System Security Issues is to:

  • share the current research topics.
  • bring researchers and experts together to discuss and share their experiences,
  • enhance personal, enterprise, national and international I&CS security awareness,
  • increase the collaboration among university – industry - institutions,

in the area of application of ML methods and applications.




This session aims to provide a platform to present and discuss recent developments in I&CS security applications using ML methods.


Papers are sought on a range of topics that include Security Applications using ML methods but are not limited to
