MLC-Machine Learning in Cyber

A workshop organized in association with ICDM’2017 November 18, 2017 New Orleans, USA

Call for papers

Workshop Description

The most notable achievement for big data is the development of large-scale machine learning, such as deep learning, reinforcement learning, etc. Cybersecurity is becoming an increasingly important problem with the ubiquity of the Internet nowadays. It is intriguing and practically significant to establish the degree to which modern machine learning can contribute to cybersecurity. There are already several tasks in cyber systems, which can be resolved by conventional machine learning techniques such as optimal thresholding in identifying malicious attacks. Recently, the rapid adoption of deep learning shed new light on cybersecurity problems with novel problem formulations and novel weapons to existing problems, which include:
         a) Adaptive Defense in Information Systems
         b) End-to-end Cyber Defense
         c) Smart Decision-making for Vulnerability Assessment
         d) Sequential Planning for Next-Generation Intrusion Detection and Response

Submission Instructions

Please send your manuscript to both of the following two emails:
We will send you a confirmation email after we receive it.


Accepted papers will be included in the IEEE ICDM 2017 Workshops Proceedings volume published by IEEE Computer Society Press, and will also be included in the IEEE Xplore Digital Library. The workshop proceedings will be in a CD separated from the CD of the main conference. The CD is produced by IEEE Conference Publishing Services (CPS). Every workshop paper must have at least one paid registration in order to be published.
