1st International Workshop on Agents and CyberSecurity
Paris, France, 05/05/2014–06/05/2014

Research in cyber security is nowadays one of the hottest topics in computer science. This is because security is of capital importance to the development of a sustainable, resilient and prosperous cyber world. This includes protecting crucial assets, ranging from Critical Infrastructures to individual's Personal Information, and it spans domains like Cloud Computing, Smart Grid, Virtual Organisations, Virtual Communities, Social Media, Electronic Commerce and many more. Approaches that are intelligent and self-adaptable are required to deal with the complexities of effectively protecting these crucial assets in all these domains. This is where research from the agent community can make a difference in cyber security. Indeed, cyber security is increasingly receiving more and more attention from the agent community. The focus of this workshop is to provide a forum to discuss and advance cyber security by means of agent-based approaches.
