Workshop Background and Goals
Information Systems Security is one of the most pressing challenges
facing all kind of organizations today. Although many companies have
discovered how critical information is to the success of their business or
operations, very few have managed to be effective in keeping their
information safe, in avoiding unauthorized access, preventing intrusions,
stopping secret information disclosure, etc.
Nowadays, rapid technological advances are stimulating a greater use of
information systems in organizations world-wide, which handle large
quantities of data, managed by huge databases and datawarehouses. In
addition, information systems quite frequently manage information that can
be considered sensitive, since it is related to certain intimate or personal
aspects of persons (beliefs, medical data, sexual tendencies, etc.) and
which must be specially protected.
Many organizations, including not only companies but also governments of
several countries, are now realizing how security problems can affect both
business success and citizen rights, and they are proposing security
policies, security planning, personal data protection laws, etc.
All of these, including technological, legislative, ethical and political
factors, justifies the importance of secure information systems, and
encourage us to research in new techniques, models and methodologies, which
could aid designers developing and implanting safe information systems which
both protect information and keep within the law.
This workshop will serve as a forum to gather academics, researchers, and
practitioners in the field of Security in Distributed Information Systems,
and especially in Internet and Web Security. The workshop will present new
developments, leassons learned from real world cases, and would provide the
exchange of ideas and discussion on specific areas.
Topics of interest include, but
are not limited to:
- Security for Grid computing
- Security for Web Services
- Security for Mobile Computing
- Security for Electronic Commerce and Electronic Business
- Security for Databases and Data Warehouses
- Biometric Security
- Intellectual Property Protection
- Annonimity and Privacy
- Digital Rights Management (DRM).
- Rights Expression Languages.
- Content Protection
- Mobile DRM
- Security & Trust Models
- Semantic Web Technologies applied to Security. Metadata.
- Access control. Models, languages and techniques.
- Authentication and Authorization. PKI and PMI technologies.
- Security Enginneering.
- Secure information systems architectures.
- Security Protocols.
- Cryptology: Cryptography and Cryptanalysis
- Information hiding: Steganography & Steganalysis
Submission of Papers
We encourage submission of high quality papers to this new edition of
the Security in Information Systems Workshop. Authors of accepted papers
must guarantee that their works will be presented at the Workshop by one of
the co-authors. Only full papers in English will be accepted. The length of
the paper should not exceed 10 pages (5000 words). Instructions for
preparing the manuscript (in Word and Latex format) are available at the
ICEIS web site. Postscript/RTF versions of the manuscript should be
submitted through ICEIS web-based paper submission procedure. The
proceedings of the workshop will be published in the form of a book (with
ISBN) by INSTICC Press.
Additionally, best works will have the chance to publish extended and
revised versions in the internationally refereed Internet Research Journal,
which is well ranked in the ISI Journal Citation Reports.
Internet Research Journal, an ISI ranked Publication
The Workshop interest is on high quality, innovative and unpublished
research. A selection of best works will be made in order to include
extended and revised versions of these works in this journal, which is
published by Emerald and listed in ISI. In 2003 the total cites were 189
with an impact factor of 0.690. Internet Research (ISSN: 1066-2243) was
established in 1991 as the first scholarly journal to devote itself to
collecting serious research about the Internet and its applications and
uses, specifically organizational. The journal aims to discuss, assess and
foster understanding of the role of wide-area multipurpose computer
networks, specifically the Internet. For more information about this journal
Leonardo Chiariglione is graduated in Electronic Engineering from the
Polytechnic of Turin and obtained his Ph. D. degree from the University of
Tokyo in 1973.
He has led several European collaborative projects: IVICO, a RACE project
studying cost-effective integrated video codecs, COMIS, an ESPRIT project
supporting the development of the MPEG-1 standard and EU 625 - VADIS a
EUREKA project aiming at developing a European hardware and software
technology for the MPEG-2 standard. And he participated in a number of other
He originated the ISO standardisation activity known as MPEG (Moving Picture
Experts Group) of which he is the Convenor. This group has a membership of
over 300 experts, representing 25 countries and all the industries having a
stake in digital audio and video. MPEG has produced the MPEG-1 and MPEG-2
standards that have triggered the digital audio-visual revolution, the
DSM-CC the server to set-top protocol, the MPEG-2 Advanced Audio Coding
(AAC) standard, MPEG-4, a standard providing seamless integration of natural
and synthetic audio and video information on delivery systems with different
quality of service and MPEG-7 a standard for audio-visual content
description. Currently MPEG is developing MPEG-21, "Multimedia Framework".
In December 2001, Leonardo and 8 companies establish the Digital Media
Project, a not-for profit organisation with the mission to promote
continuing successful development, deployment and use of Digital Media that
respect the rights of creators and rights holders to exploit their works,
the wish of end users to fully enjoy the benefits of Digital Media the
interests of various value-chain players to provide products and services
according to the principles laid down in the Digital Media Manifesto.
As a result of his manifold activities Leonardo has received a number of
