==Overview ==

Digital Forensics and Information Security (DFIS) are key elements for the next generation communication and networking environments where all applications and services are focused on users. In addition, the DFIS has emerged rapidly an exciting new paradigm to provide reliable and comfortable life services. Furthermore, the benefits of DFIS will only be realized if security issues can be appropriately addressed. Specially, forensics for DFIS is very important in the security fields. This workshop is intended to foster state-of-the-art research Digital Forensics and Information Security in the area of DFIS including information and communication technologies, law, social sciences and business administration.
The DFIS-16 is the next event in a series of the International Symposium on Digital Forensics and Information Security (DFIS-14, Guam, USA), (DFIS-13, Gwangju, Korea), DFIS-12 (Vancouver, Canada) and the International Workshop on Forensics for Future Generation Communication environments : F2GC-11 (Loutraki, Greece), F2GC-10 (Cebu, Philippines), F2GC-09 (Jeju , Korea), F2GC-08 (Sanya, China), F2GC-09 (Jeju , Korea).

== Submission Guidelines and Publication ==

There will be a combination of presentations including scientific papers. Prospective authors are invited, in the first instance, to submit papers for oral presentations in any of the areas of interest for this conference. Authors should submit a paper based on page limitation including all figures, tables, and references. If you want to submit more than page limitation, you can add up to 2 extra pages with the appropriate fee payment.
All accepted papers will be included in the conference proceedings published by Lecture Notes in Electrical Engineering (LNEE) - Springer (indexed by EI and SCOPUS).

Authors should submit a paper with 5~6 pages in length, including all figures, tables, and references. If you want to submit more than page limitation, you can add up to 2 extra pages (total MAX. 8 pages) with the extra page charges (100 USD per page).
Papers exceeding the page limits will be rejected without review.
