7th European Conference on Information Warfare and Security
University of Plymouth, UK
30 June – 1 July 2008
The Seventh European Conference on Information Warfare and Security (ECIW) is an opportunity for academics, practitioners and consultants from Europe and elsewhere who are involved in the study, management, development and implementation of systems and concepts to combat information warfare or to improve information systems security to come together and exchange ideas. There are several strong strands of research and interest that are developing in the area including the understanding of threats and risks to information systems, the development of a strong security culture, as well as incident detection and post incident investigation. This conference is continuing to establish itself as a key event for individuals working in the field from around the world.
The advisory group for the conference invites submissions of papers on both the theory and practice of all aspects of Information Warfare and Security. The conference in June/July 2008 is seeking qualitative, experience-based and quantitative papers as well as case studies and reports of work in progress from academics, information systems practitioners, consultants and government departments.
