Paper Submission due: June 29, 2017 [FIRM DEADLINE]

Notification to authors: July 31, 2017

Camera ready due: August 15, 2017


The 11th WISTP International Conference on Information Security Theory and Practice (WISTP'2017) 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.


In 2007, Workshop in Information Security Theory and Practice (WISTP) was created as a forum for bringing together researchers and practitioners in related areas and to encourage interchange and cooperation between the research community and the industrial/consumer community. From 2015, due to increased participation it has become a Conference.


Submissions with regards to the security of future ICT technologies, such as cyber-physical systems, cloud services, data science and the Internet of Things are particularly welcome.
