The 12th WISTP International Conference in Information Security Theory and Practice (WISTP’2018) will be held at the “Palais des académies” in Brussels, Belgium, 10-11 December 2018.

Organized by IFIP Working Group 11.2 “Pervasive Systems Security” and the Université Libre de Bruxelles, the conference will feature a session dedicated to presenting the many activities of WG11.2.

Future ICT technologies – such as the concepts of Ambient Intelligence, Cyber-physical Systems and the Internet of Things – provide a vision of the Information Society in which:

  • people and physical systems are surrounded with intelligent interactive interfaces and objects, and
  • 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 to bring 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, WISTP has been a conference since 2015.

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 on technological issues.
