GMU - AFCEA Symposium 2011


The GMU-AFCEA symposium will focus on a selected set of hot topics. We seek a strong, impactful collection of papers. These papers could have been presented elsewhere but they must address current, cutting-edge issues in a compelling manner. Our program committee has been recruited based on their involvement at that cutting edge.

  • Cloud Computing in C4I Systems
    • High-assurance public clouds for C4I
    • Clouds with integrated sensors
    • Cloud computing in tactical systems

  • Network Security
    • Inherently secure network architecture
    • Security at the edge: mobile/wireless security
    • Securing dispersed C4I systems

  • Military Use of Commercial IT
    • Commercial approaches to Defense software development
    • IT supply chain security
    • COTS products in fielded military systems

  • Full draft submissions due:               15 January  2011     31 January  2011

  • Notification of acceptance:                 1 February 2011     18 February  2011

Selected papers will be posted on our website and also become candidates for special issues of journals. (Some of the best papers from past symposia have been selected for the International Journal of Command and Control and the Journal of Defense Modeling and Simulation.)

Potential authors also may submit an abstract or double-spaced draft for Program Committee comment/recommendations, via the upload site.
