VizSec 2013 will be held in Atlanta GA, USA on October 14. VizSec 2013 brings together researchers and practitioners in information visualization and security to address the specific needs of the cyber security community through new and insightful visualization techniques. VizSec 2013 will be held as a workshop at IEEE VIS 2013. The proceedings will be in the ACM Digital Library. Proceedings will be publicly available from around October 1 until the day of the event. A link will be posted here when they are available.

History of VizSec

VizSec started in 2004 as the Workshop on Visualization and Data Mining for Computer Security at ACM CCS. After that first event, the event got bigger and bigger each year as it rotated between a visualization-focused conference and a security-focused conference. After several different publishers for the proceedings, VizSec in 2010 began to publish proceedings with ACM ICPS. The VizSec ICPS page is available at:

Organizing VizSec 2013

VizSec is independently run and we are always looking for people to help out, on the organizing and program committees, with sponsorship and publicizing, and with writing high quality papers. Contact John Goodall.

The roles and responsibilities of the organizing committee is documented on the Committee Roles page.

Places that we have publicized in the past is documented on the Publicity page.

There will be an award for the best paper from the accepted program. The best paper award will be given to the paper judged to have the highest overall quality. A key element of the best paper selection process will be whether the results are believed to be repeatable by other scientists based on the algorithms and data provided in the paper. This award will be chosen by the program committee.
