Call for Book Chapters
Cybersecurity & High-Performance Computing Environments: 
Integrated Innovations, Practices, and Applications
CRC PRESS   Taylor & Francis

Recently, cyber incidents have become disruptive, increasingly expensive with political and economic side effects. For such, Cybersecurity has become the central issue for empowering national and international progress in diverse scientific and networked science in complicated yet mixed technology domains. With the advent of myriad different technologies in the post petascale computing era, computing's future involves a significantly greater degree of cyber incidents than we are currently observing. The rapid advancement and introduction of new processing technologies for computing have facilitated the convergence of Artificial Intelligence (AI) and Machine Learning (ML), Data Analytics and Big Data and the High-Performance Computing (HPC) domains platforms to solve complex, large-scale real-time analytics and scientific applications on diverse scientific and non-scientific fields. As we move towards exascale future and beyond, the new convergent computing platforms along with a paradigm shift in programming applications leveraging these platforms provide both challenges and opportunities for cyberinfrastructure facilitators, researchers, and administrators to develop, deliver, support, and prepare a diverse set of solutions utilizing emerging technologies to mitigate cyber-attacks and achieve cyber resilience in real-time.

Book co-editors intend to invite experts and members from HPC and Cybersecurity Community to contribute articles on emergent research innovations, practices, and applications focusing on the interdependence of cybersecurity and high-performance computing domains to discover and resolve new emerging cyber-threats. 

The book editors encourage submissions on the solutions that address the threats to the Confidentiality, Integrity, Availability in high-performance computing (HPC) environments and solutions that utilize the power of the HPC environments to study and understand the multifaceted complexities, anomalous and malicious characteristics, and the modeling and simulation of complex technical, organizational and human systems instrumental in providing cybersecurity that is beyond human comprehension. 

Topics of interest may include, but are not limited to, the following:
• Big Data architectures, algorithms and applications for cybersecurity
• Cyber Analytics
• Scientific fidelity 
• Edge Computing Security
• Security, Privacy, Trust, and Safety in HPC Environments
• Algorithms and Systems for Intrusion and Anomaly Detection, and Response Planning
• Models and frameworks for Cybersecurity
• Container Technology Security
• Mobile and IoT Security Algorithms and Applications
• Cloud security architectures and algorithms
• Security in AI and ML
• AI platforms for cybersecurity
• Blockchain for HPC security
• Resiliency in HPC applications and Environments
• Extreme-scale computing security 
• Application and Information Security
• Network Security 
• HPC facilities Confidentiality, Integrity, and Availability
• Cybersecurity DRP -Disaster Recovery Plan
• HPC Operations Security
• Robustness and Security measurements, standards, and policies for future generation computing systems and networks
