Read here how to proceed.

International Symposium on Engineering Secure Software and Systems

Event Category: 

Trustworthy, secure software is a core ingredient of the modern world. Hostile, networked environments, like the Internet, can allow vulnerabilities in software to be exploited from anywhere. To address this, high-quality security building blocks (e.g., cryptographic components) are necessary, but insufficient. Indeed, the construction of secure software is challenging because of the complexity of modern applications, the growing sophistication of security requirements, the multitude of available software technologies and the progress of attack vectors.

The Workshop on the Economics of Information Security

Event Category: 

Information security and privacy continue to grow in importance, as threats proliferate, privacy erodes, and attackers find new sources of value. Yet the security of information systems and the privacy offered by them depends on more than just technology. Each requires an understanding of the incentives and trade-offs inherent to the behavior of people and organizations. As society’s dependence on information technology has deepened, policy-makers have taken notice.

IFIP TM on Trust Management

Event Category: 

Trust is an essential glue for any society, whether formed by human or artificial agents, whether in a real-life or an online setting. This trust needs to be established, reinforced or abolished to reflect changes in the society and its participants. The mechanisms for such trust management may be psychological or sociological in the case of humans, algorithmic or probabilistic, e.g., in the case of artificial agents.

Open PhD Forum

Event Category: 

The Open PhD Forum is organized for NeCS fellows to present their research topics and share their ideas with other cyber security researchers. The goal of the workshop is to provide the NeCS fellows the possibility to defend their research approaches, discuss possible alternative solutions and research directions with the researchers of different expertise and get a more comprehensive vision of their problems at this early state of their study.

IFIP SEC on Information Security and Privacy Protection in Information Processing Systems

Event Category: 

The SEC conferences are a series of well-established international conferences on Security and Privacy. SEC is the flagship event of the International Federation for Information Processing (IFIP) Technical Committee 11 (TC-11).

The 10th World Information Security Education Conference – WISE10 (hosted by IFIP WG 11.8) is co-located with IFIP SEC 2017. It will take place between Monday May 29th an Wednesday May 31st. Please visit the WISE10 website for more details.
