12th WISTP International Conference on Information Security Theory and Practice (WISTP 2018)
Brussels, Belgium -- 10-11 December 2018
Deadline for submissions: 14 October 2018 - FIRM DEADLINE
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.
The 12th WISTP International Conference on Information Security Theory and Practice (WISTP'2018) 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
