The track focuses on defenses and adaptive countermeasures against
malicious intelligent software, malicious robots, smart attack tools,
and intelligent deception.

A human attacker is usually required to remotely control standard attack
tools and to decide how to deal with unexpected eventualities. This is
usually costly, and if decisions are required quickly, it could be
impractical. Another paradigm is to use automated attack tools capable
of making intelligent real-rime decisions without human intervention.
Such tools could be very fast, accurate and will track and attack a
target with leaving many traces. Automated attack tools could
intelligently cooperate with other tools and human beings by bringing
together artificial and human intelligence, putting them into action in
order to bring down the adversary.

Intelligent attack tools could create unknown threats, by adapting,
mutating, and competing against production systems which are forced to
respond in real-time without degrading legitimate access. Intelligent
attack tools could also discover new vulnerabilities and exploits, and
launch attacks that are too fast for the human decision cycle. The goal
of the workshop is to develop adaptive countermeasure systems that can
respond in real time, generate intelligent solutions for faster
responses, and meet critical needs.

Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:
- Intelligent malware;
- Malicious software agents;
- Intelligent attack tools;
- Malicious robots and robotic warfare;
- Software tools and models of deception;
- Adversarial manipulation of algorithms;
- Game-theoretic models of computer and network security;
- Coordination models for distributed attacks;
- Models of malicious intelligence;
- Intelligent surveillance.

The mini track aims to provide a quality forum for the presentation of
research results, ideas, and practical experiences in the new area of
malicious intelligent software and to bring together academic and
industrial researchers from various fields to discuss current
challenges, open problems, and future trends in malicious intelligent
