Due to several requests, we'll extend the deadline to April 10, 2016.
Apologies for cross posting. My colleagues and I have an Enterprise Security Springer Book 2016 (ESSB 2016) project, a Springer book. We're looking for high quality submissions on this topic. We seek papers from both technical security (theory, prototype, experiments, simulations, proofs-of-concept and product development) and information system security (review, frameworks, best practices, statistical analysis based on surveys and case studies) that provide good recommendations and research contributions to enterprise security. Each chapter needs a minimum of 8,000 words (excluding abstract and references), strong research contributions and excellent English. I hope you may submit or consider submitting on/by March 31 (https://easychair.org/conferences/?conf=essb2016) and details are as followed.
Thanks and regards,
Enterprise Security Springer Book 2016 (ESSB 2016)
Enterprise security is an important area since all types of organizations require secure and robust environments, platforms and services to work with people, data and computing applications. There are instances whereby security breaches and privacy concerns have been the main factors preventing organizations from putting their resources in public and community domains. Even in private domains, there is no escape from the threats to cyber security, privacy, trust and risk. We live in an information age whereby there is a massive and rapid dissemination of information. Protecting our data, privacy and rights has become increasingly important regardless where we are based and in which organization we work. Challenges such as data ownership, trust, unauthorized access and big data management should be resolved by using innovative methods, models, frameworks, case studies and analysis to reduce risks imposed by data leakage, hacking, breach of privacy and abuse use of data. To adopt the best practices, papers that can fully address security, privacy and risk concerns are welcome. We seek papers from both technical security (theory, prototype, experiments, simulations, proofs-of-concept and product development) and information system security (review, frameworks, best practices, statistical analysis based on surveys and recommendations) that provide good recommendations and research contributions to enterprise security. Topics are the same as the ES 2015 workshop. Anyone can submit, with or without attending ES 2015. Please ensure the quality of your submission is excellent. Important dates:
Submission deadline: April 10, 2016 (extended)
Result of the first round returned: May 2, 2016 or as soon as possible
Submission deadline of the 2nd round: May 31, 2016
Notification of results: June 15, 2016 or as soon as possible
Final version of book chapter: July 8, 2016 or as early as possible

The focus of this book project is to present new techniques, demonstrations, innovative approaches and case studies related to Enterprise Security. The impacts of research contributions are as follows.
- Explain how to implement enterprise security and their added values.
- Demonstrate how enterprise security can be used in different case studies.
- Describe how to resolve challenges in each adoption scenario.
- Provide reproducible steps for anyone to follow, and support reproducibility, an important aspect in computer science.
- Explain how their IT services can work effectively in production and real-time
- Present how their services can make contributions to users involved in the use of IT/Cloud services and adoption.
- Sum up and disseminate all the lessons learned and recommendation to play an influential role in academia and industry.
