Due to receiving several requests for deadline extension, we have  
decided to
extend the paper submission deadline to ** August 5, 2011 **

The 2011 workshop on
(DNS EASY 2011)
October 18-20, 2011
GCSEC headquarters
Rome, Italy


A joint event GCSEC - ICANN - DNS-OARC


The Domain Name System is the core of the Internet infrastructure. The  
dependency of Critical Infrastructures (CIs) control and governance on  
ICT is increasing. As a result, the DNS will more and more going to  
play a relevant role also in the daily life of the citizen. A failure  
of DNS could have a dramatic impact on a national and international  
critical infrastructure, can impact on the vital services of a country  
and of other countries and for that reason the DNS must be considered  
by itself a critical infrastructure.

GCSEC, in cooperation with ICANN and DNS-OARC, organizes the 2011  
Workshop on DNS health and security (DNS EASY-2011). The DNS-EASY  
workshop aims at bringing together researchers and professionals from  
academia, industry and Governmental Agencies and representatives of  
DNS ecosystem stakeholder groups (technical development, network  
operators, enterprise users, and security experts), to discuss all  
different aspects of the DNS Health and Security and its impact on the  
modern society.

The DNS EASY 2011 co-locates the 3rd edition of the Global Annual  
Symposium on DNS Security, Stability and Resiliency and the first  
edition of the Workshop on DNS Health and Security. Following the  
tradition of the 2009 and 2010 editions of the Global Annual Symposium  
on DNS-SSR the DNS-EASY is organized in two parts. The first part will  
be devoted to research results, R&D applications and industrial  
experiences. The second part (the Global Annual Symposium on DNS-SSR),  
for invitation only, will involve DNS ecosystem stakeholder groups in  
discussions on operational and policy challenges related to the DNS  
health and security.

Scientific contributions will be used to support the discussion of the  
second part of the workshop.  Authors are solicited to contribute to  
the Workshop by submitting research papers, work-in-progress reports,  
R&D project results, surveys and industrial experiences describing  
significant advances in the following areas:

- DNS Security, Resilience, Stability and Performance metrics (DNS  
- DNS Infrastructure resilience and QoS
- DNS Cyber Threats and Vulnerabilities
- DNS Defense
- DNS and Cybercrime
- Impact of DNS on Critical Infrastructures (Energy Systems, Finance  
- DNSSEC (all aspects)
- DNS Infrastructure Modeling & Simulation
- DNS Operations Vs DNS Health and Security
- DNS Governance Vs DNS Health and Security

All submissions will be subjected to a blind review by at least three  
Papers should be up to 12 pages in English, including bibliography and  
well-marked appendices. It is planned to publish conference post- 
proceedings by Springer Verlag in the LNCS Series containing the final
