                      Welcome to IWSEC2006

Following the success of a series of Japanese domestic symposia in the 
field of computer security, ISEC and CSEC are delighted to host the 
First International Workshop on Security, IWSEC2006, on October 23-24, 
2006, in Kyoto, 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.

We invite authors to contribute papers addressing the topics: from 
traditional theory and tools on security to up-to-date issues. 

                       Conference  Scope

Papers may present theory, applications or practical experiences on 
topics including, but not limited to:

 - 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

                        Paper submission

Submitted papers must be original, unpublished, and not submitted to 
another conference or journal for consideration of publication. Papers 
must be written in English and be fully anonymous with no author names, 
affiliations, acknowledgements or obvious references. They should be at 
the maximum of 16 pages in total, in standard LNCS format (except for 
author names and affiliations). Papers should be sufficiently 
intelligible and self contained without appendices so that PC members 
can review papers without them.

Accepted papers will be presented at the workshop and published in the 
book of proceedings. At least one author of each accepted paper is 
required to register and participate in the workshop in Kyoto to present 
the paper. Proceedings will be published in a special volume of Springer 
LNCS.

Papers must be submitted in electronic form through the web.
Web site for the electronic submission is now available at 
http://www.iwsec.org/submission.html .
Submissions not meeting the submission guidelines risk rejection
without consideration of their merits.

                             Kyoto

Late October is one of the best seasons to visit Japan, and the 
organizers are most pleased to host the conference in the city of Kyoto, 
where the tradition and modernity exist in harmony. While modern 
buildings line the main streets, the city maintains the serenity of an 
ancient capitol. Recognized by UNESCO as the World Cultural Heritage, 
the city is filled with ancient temples and beautiful gardens. For the 
visitors from outside Japan, Kyoto is easily accessible from Kansai 
Airport.
