The 8th Annual Collaboration, Electronic messaging, Anti-Abuse and Spam Conference (CEAS 2011), Sep 2011
The 8th Annual Collaboration, Electronic messaging, Anti-Abuse and Spam Conference (CEAS 2011) will be held in the beautiful city of Perth, in Western Australia on 1st and 2nd September, 2011.
It will be hosted by the Anti Spam Research Lab in the Digital Ecosystems & Business Intelligence Institute, which is part of Curtin University.
Spam is defined as “unsolicited, anonymous, and commercial mass messaging”. Spam originated via email in the early eighties and has been constantly evolving, as it adapts itself to new technology. Spam is changing and adopting itself with new technology.
Earlier spam only resided in emails, but now spam can be found on the Internet (i.e. web spam), Search Engines (i.e. Spamdexing), Web 2.0 applications like Discussion Forums, Blogs, Wikis, Social Networks (i.e. Spam 2.0) and even in IP Telephony and Chat Messengers.
Spam is not just a nuisance: it is used with criminal intent to perpetrate fraud (various scams and phishing attacks), to attack websites of national security organisations, banks and other institutions, and to corrupt or confuse web searches by legitimate users. It has significant socio-economic implications.
CEAS 2011 aims to establish a platform for discussing the challenges raised by the infiltration of spam in Email, Web 2.0, IP Telephony and the like. We are interested in papers, work-in-progress reports, and industrial experiences describing advances in all areas of anti spam, anti-fraud, security, trust, cyber crime, spam economics. We are also interested in papers on information security, cyber crime, network security, IT security, security technologies and security management.
