The 9th WISTP International Conference on Information Security Theory and Practice (WISTP'2015)
August 24-25, 2015, Crete, Greece -

Future ICT technologies, such as the concepts of Ambient Intelligence, Cyber-physical Systems, and Internet of Things provide a vision of the Information Society in which: a) people and physical systems are surrounded with intelligent interactive interfaces and objects, and b) environments are capable of recognising and reacting to the presence of different individuals or events in a seamless, unobtrusive, and invisible manner. The success of future ICT technologies will depend on how secure these systems are and to what extent they protect the privacy of individuals and individuals trust them.
In 2007, Workshop in Information Security Theory and Practice (WISTP) was created as a forum for bringing together researchers and practitioners in related areas and to encourage interchange and cooperation between the research community and the industrial/consumer community. Based on the growing interest of the participants, 2015 edition is becoming a conference – The 9th WISTP International Conference on Information Security Theory and Practice (WISTP'2015).
WISTP 2015 seeks original submissions from academia and industry presenting novel research on all theoretical and practical aspects of security and privacy, as well as experimental studies of fielded systems, the application of security technology, the implementation of systems, and lessons learned. We encourage submissions from other communities such as law, business, and policy that present these communities' perspectives on technological issues. Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:
* Security and Privacy in Smart Devices
- Biometrics, National ID cards
- Embedded Systems Security and TPMs
- Interplay of TPMs and Smart Cards
- Mobile Codes Security
- Mobile Devices Security

- Wireless Sensor Node

* Security and Privacy in Networks
- Ad Hoc Networks
- Delay-Tolerant Network
- Domestic Network
- Peer-to-Peer Networks
- Security Issues in Mobile and Ubiquitous Networks

- Vehicular Network
- Wireless Communication: Bluetooth, NFC, WiFi, WiMAX, others

* Security and Privacy in Architectures, Protocols, Policies, Systems and Applications
- BYOD Contexts
- Cloud-enhanced Mobile Security
- Critical Infrastructure (e.g. for Medical or Military Applications)
- Cyber-Physical Systems
- Digital Rights Management (DRM)
- Distributed Systems and Grid Computing
- Information Assurance and Trust Management

Paper Submission due: April 30, 2015 [Extended Firm Deadline]
Notification to authors: May 30, 2015
Camera ready due: June 10, 2015

Submissions must not substantially overlap with papers that have been published or that are simultaneously submitted to a journal or conference/workshop with proceedings. Each submission should be at most 16 pages in total in the Springer’s LNCS format ( All submissions should be anonymous (i.e., no author names/affiliations and obvious citations). Submissions are to be made to the submission web site ( Only PDF files will be accepted. Submissions not meeting these guidelines risk rejection without consideration of their merits. Accepted papers will be published by Springer in the Lecture Notes in Computer Science series (, and the proceedings will be available at the workshop. The camera-ready version of the accepted papers must follow Springer guidelines (a Latex source file will be required).
If a submitted paper is mainly the work of a student author, this paper is eligible for the best student paper award. To participate in this selection process, please add the word "STUDENT" in the affiliation field in the submission form.
Authors of accepted papers must guarantee that their papers will be presented at the workshop. At least one author of each accepted paper is required to register with the workshop and present the paper. For authors presenting multiple papers, one normal registration is valid for up to two papers.
Selected papers will be invited to submit an extended version of their papers to the following Journal Special Issues:
- Computer Networks, Special Issue on Recent Advances in Physical-Layer Security
- IET Information Security, Special Issue on Lightweight and Energy-Efficient Security Solutions for Mobile Computing Devices
- Future Generation Computer Systems, Special Issue on Security, Privacy and Trust of the User-Centric Solutions
