Baras Co-Editor of New Book, "Decision and Game Theory for Security"


Professor John S. Baras (ECE/ISR) is the co-editor of a new book, titled “Decision and Game Theory for Security,” published by Springer as Volume 6442 of the Lecture Notes in Computer Science / Security and Cryptology Series.

The book, co-edited by with Tansu Alpcan and Levente Buttyán, constitutes the refereed proceedings of the First International Conference on Decision and Game Theory for Security, GameSec 2010, held in Berlin, Germany, on November 22-23, 2010. The 12 revised full papers and six revised short papers presented were carefully reviewed and selected from numerous submissions and focus on analytical models based on game, information, communication, optimization, decision, and control theories that are applied to diverse security topics. The papers are organized in topical sections on security investments and planning, privacy and anonymity, adversarial and robust control, network security and botnets, authorization and authentication, as well as theory and algorithms for security.

The GameSec conference aims to bring together researchers who aim to establish a theoretical foundation for making resource allocation decisions that balance available capabilities and perceived security risks in a principled manner. The conference focuses on analytical models based on game, information, communication, optimization, decision, and control theories that are applied to diverse security topics. At the same time, the connection between theoretical models and real world security problems are emphasized to establish the important feedback loop between theory and practice. The 2011 GameSec conference will be hosted by the University of Maryland at the Inn and Conference Center in College Park, on November 14-15, 2011. Professor Baras is the General Chair of GameSec 2011.
