    		      Countering Cyber-Terrorism
    			      June 22-23
    		      Marina del Rey, California
          A workshop sponsored by the Information Sciences Institute
    	       of the University of Southern California
    			Call for Participation
    Recent studies warn of Cyber-Terrorism and the vulnerability of our
    computer systems and infrastructure to attack. These reports identify
    damage that determined, knowledgeable, and well-financed adversaries could
    inflict on commercial, government, and military systems.  Such attacks
    would have severe consequences for the public, and in particular the
    economy, which has become dependant on computers and communications
    The objective of this workshop is to identify things that should be done
    to improve our ability to detect, protect against, contain, neutralize,
    mitigate the effects of, and recover from cyber-terrorist attacks.
    Participants are sought from the computer security, electronic commerce
    and banking, network infrastructure, military, and counter-terrorism
    communities, as well as those with experience of cyber-terrorist attacks.
    Recommendations may suggest research and development or operational
    measures that can be taken.  The workshop is NOT a forum for presentation
    of the latest security systems, protocols or algorithms.  The workshop
    will address the strategies, framework, and infrastructure required to
    combine and incrementally deploy such technologies to counter the
    cyber-terrorist threat.
    Attendance will be limited to approximately 25 participants.  Participants
    will be selected on the basis of submitted position papers that raise
    issues for the workshop to discuss, identify threats or countermeasures,
    or propose strategies or infrastructure to counter the threat of
    cyber-terrorism. Position papers should be four pages or less in length. 
    Submissions should be sent in e-mail in Word or PDF format, or as ASCII
    text to cyber-terrorism-wsat_private
    Please check the web page http://www.isi.edu/cctws for more information,
    including a position paper from the organizers which will be available two
    weeks prior to the submission deadline.
