TechSQWeb session: Special session on Technologies for secure and high-quality Web-based services

Goal: This special session is intended to bring together researchers, Ph.D. students, and practitioners from the fields of Information security and QoS.

Chief: Grażyna SUCHACKA (gsuchacka [at]

Dr. Grażyna Suchacka received the M.Sc. degrees in Computer Science and in Management from Wroclaw University of Science and Technology (Poland). In 2011 she received the Ph.D. degree in Computer Science with distinction from Wroclaw University of Science and Technology. Now she is an assistant professor in the Institute of Mathematics and Informatics at the University of Opole (Poland). Her research interests include Quality of Web Service, Web mining, and analysis and modeling of Web traffic with special regard to electronic commerce and Web bots. Grażyna has been participating in COST Actions IC1304 ACROSS (Autonomous Control for a Reliable Internet of Services) and IC1406 cHiPSet (High- Performance Modelling and Simulation for Big Data Applications). She has authored and co-authored more than 50 scientific book chapters, journal and conference papers. She is a member of IEEE and a member of Polish Society of Computer Simulation.

Target: Everyone interested in this area

Scope of the special session

In the last years, we have been witnessing evolution of information and communication technologies towards a cloud-based computing environment driven by proliferation of mobile devices and advancement of the Internet of Things (IoT). As a consequence, new challenges for providing distributed services with the high security and Quality of Service (QoS) level emerged.

At the same time, commonness of such Internet-based applications as social media and online marketing tools have lead to a huge increase in the volume of automatically generated network traffic, often difficult to distinguish from that generated by human users. In particular, an increasing complexity and sophistication of malicious software agents makes it more and more difficult to detect them and cope with their presence.

This special session focuses on novel technologies, methods, algorithms, and tools facing these challenges and threats. Topics of interest include new solutions aimed at improving QoS and cybersecurity on the Internet, developed both at the network level and on end hosts. The scope of the session includes, but is not limited to, the following areas:

  • Cybersecurity in computer networks:

    • Formal methods for cybersecurity
    • Security protocols
    • Novel algorithms for symmetric and asymmetric encryption
    • Public Key Infrastructure (PKI)
    • Access control and authorization
    • Network anomaly detection
    • Traffic pattern analysis for anomaly detection
    • Detection and defense against malicious software
    • Analysis and detection of Web bots
    • Solutions preventing an unauthorized access in network devices and hosts
    • Security and privacy technologies for IoT

  • Quality of Service:

    • QoS technologies at the network, client, and server level
    • Admission control and scheduling policies
    • Request distribution algorithms in cluster-based Web systems
    • QoS mechanisms for cloud environments
    • QoS for big data distributed applications
    • Knowledge discovery and data mining in distributed computer systems
    • Machine learning and pattern recognition in distributed computer systems
    • Performance evaluation of distributed computer systems
    • Queuing theory models and applications
    • Transmission quality and energy efficiency in sensor networks
    • Quality of Service and Quality of Experience for IoT
    • Mobile technologies for improving Quality of Life
    • Related computational implementation and software tools

Submitted papers should present results of original and unpublished research. At least one author of each accepted paper must register for the TechSQWeb special session or for the Computer Networks conference and present the paper during the TechSQWeb session.

Session papers must be written according to Springer guidelines ( and submitted electronically via the CN conference management system. They will be evaluated with the same standards as regular CN conference papers.

All accepted papers will be included in the proceedings published by Springer in the CCIS book series, which is indexed by DBLP, EI, Scopus and is submitted for the inclusion in ISI Proceedings and Inspec (to be available in Web of Science database).
