The 2nd International Workshop on
Forensics for Future Generation Communication environments (F2GC-08)

December 13 ~ 15, 2008, Horizon Resort, Sanya, Hainan Island, China


In Conjunction with FGCN 2008

Future Generation Communication environments (FGC) are advanced communication and networking environments where all applications and services are focused on users. In addition, the FGC has emerged rapidly an exciting new paradigm to provide reliable and comfortable life services.
Furthermore, the benefits of FGC will only be realized if security issues can be appropriately addressed. Specially, forensics for FGC is very important in the security fields.

This workshop is intended to foster state-of-the-art research forensics in the area of FGC including information and communication technologies, law, social sciences and business administration.

The F2GC-08 will provide an opportunity for academic and industry professionals to discuss the latest issues and progress in the area of forensics. And the workshop will publish high quality papers which are closely related to the various theories and practical applications in F2GC. Furthermore, we expect that the workshop and its publications will be a trigger for further related research and technology improvements in this important subject.

Topics of interest include but are not limited to following:
  • Digital forensics tools in FGC
  • Digital Evidence Management in FGC
  • Digital Evidence Analytics in FGC
  • Digital Forensics Surveillance Technology and Procedures in FGC
  • Digital evidence visualisation and communication for FGC
  • Digital evidence storage and preservation in FGC
  • Incident response and investigation in FGC
  • Forensic procedures in FGC
  • Portable electronic device forensics for FGC
  • Network forensics in FGC
  • Data hiding and recovery in FGC
  • Network traffic analysis, traceback and attribution in FGC
  • Legal, ethical and policy issues related to digital forensics in FGC
  • Integrity of digital evidence and live investigations
  • Multimedia analysis in FGC
  • Trends and Challenges for FGC
  • Evidence Protection in FGC
  • Forensics case studies in FG
