Call for Participation

Welcome to IWSEC2007

Following the success of a series of Japanese domestic symposia in the field of computer security, ISEC and CSEC are delighted to host the Second International Workshop on Security, IWSEC2007, on October 29-31, 2007, in Nara, Japan.

The complex structure of networks, middleware, agents, P2P applications and ubiquitous computing for commercial, personal, communal and public use, brought forth the advent of information society in the cyberspace. However the system poses new and diverse threats to the world. It is imperative for the security researchers to look into the issues from an interdisciplinary perspective.

The aim of IWSEC2007 is to contribute to security research and development addressing the topics: from traditional theory and tools on security to up-to-date issues.

  • Fundamental Tools for Information Security
  • Network and Distributed Systems Security
  • Privacy Enhancing Technology
  • Secure Living and Working Environments
  • Security in Commerce and Government
  • Security Management
  • Software and System Security
  • Protection of Critical Infrastructures
  • Testing, Verification and Certification
  • Law, Policy, Ethics and Related Technologies

We have 112paper submissions. Among them 30 papers were accepted through a rigorous review process.

We now invite you to attend IWSEC2007. Join the fruitful discussions in Nara!!
