SECART - Second International Workshop on Security and Artificial 
Intelligence Atlanta, Georgia, USA, July 11, 2010


Our increasingly networked world continues to provide new opportunities 
for security breaches that have severe consequences at the personal 
level (identity theft, and resulting financial losses), for businesses 
(theft of intellectual property, or business plans, or costly responses 
to the theft of customer data), and for governments. Computing and the 
internet have become crucial parts of the infrastructure of almost every 
significant commercial or governmental enterprise. Turning off the 
computers or disconnecting from the network has become tantamount to 
turning off the power.  The use of techniques drawn from AI is 
increasingly relevant as the scale of the problem increases, in terms of 
the size and complexity of the networks being protected, the variety of 
applications and services provided using that infrastructure, and the 
sophistication of the attacks being made. With this workshop, we hope to 
encourage dialogue and collaboration between the AI and Security 
communities.  Previous events in this area include the ICAPS-09 workshop 
on Intelligent Security, as well as ones held in conjunction with the 
ACM Conference on Computer and Communications Security, in 2008 and 

Workshop themes include both applied and theoretical results regarding 
the application of AI techniques to security problems (or, 
alternatively, novel security issues caused by the use of AI 
techniques).  Possible topics include but are not limited to the 

 *  Knowledge Representation and Engineering for Cyber Security
 *  Secure Web Services
 *  Development of Trusted Software
 *  Data Mining and Forensics
 *  Automated Vulnerability Analysis
 *  Automated Exploit and Attack Generation
 *  Automated Alerting and Response
 *  Diagnosis and Plan Recognition
 *  Automating Security Analyses and Audits
 *  Artificial Immune Systems
 *  Privacy and Confidentiality
 *  Intelligent User Interfaces for Security Applications
 *  Security and Organizational Structure
