The Information Security Conference (ISC) is an annual international conference covering research in theory and applications of Information Security. ISC aims to attract high quality papers in all technical aspects of information security. It was first initiated as a workshop in Japan in 1997 (ISW'97, LNCS 1396), Malaysia (ISW'99, LNCS 1729), and Australia (ISW'00, LNCS 1975), and then changed to the current name ISC when it was held in Spain in 2001 (ISC'01, LNCS 2200). Later conferences were held in Brazil (ISC'02, LNCS 2433), UK (ISC'03, LNCS 2851), California, USA (ISC'04, LNCS 3225), Singapore (ISC'05, LNCS 3650), Greece (ISC'06, LNCS 4176), Chile (ISC'07, LNCS 4779), Taipei, Taiwan (ISC'08, LNCS 5222), Italy (ISC'09, LNCS 5735), Florida, USA (ISC'10, LNCS 6531), China (ISC'11, LNCS 7001), Germany (ISC'12, LNCS 7483), and Dallas, USA (ISC'13).Hong Kong (ISC'14), Norway (ISC'15), Hawaii, USA (ISC’16).

20th Information Security Conference (ISC'17) will be held in Ho Chi Minh city, Viet Nam.

cryptographic protocols
database security
data protection
data/system integrity
digital right management
economics of security and privacy

* Instructions for Paper Submission:

As in all previous ISC editions, the proceedings will be published in the Springer Lecture Notes in Computer Science(LNCS) series. In this sense, all submissions are limited to 18 pages in the llncs style, including bibliography and any appendices; each submission must be intelligible and self-contained within this length. The Springer llncs class file can be downloaded at

Each submission must be thoroughly anonymized, with no author names, affiliations, acknowledgements, or obvious references. Submissions must not duplicate work that was published elsewhere, or work that has been submitted in parallel to any other conference, journal or workshop that has proceedings. Authors of accepted papers must guarantee that their paper will be presented at the conference. One full registration is required for every accepted paper.

*Best paper award and best student paper:

All submissions are eligible for the competitions for best paper, if one of the authors will present the paper, and best student paper, if at least one full-time student is the primary author and the presenting author at the conference. We reserve the right not to give an award.
