International Conference on Network and Information Systems Security

                 La Rochelle, France - 18-21 May 2011



The SAR-SSI conference series provides a forum for presenting novel
research results, practical experiences and innovative ideas in
network and information systems security.

The goal of SAR-SSI-2011 is fostering exchanges among academic
researchers, industry and a wider audience interested in network and
information system security. The conference will offer a broad area of
events, ranging from panels, tutorials, technical presentations and
informal meetings.  Prospective authors are encouraged to submit
papers describing novel research contributions as well as proposals
for tutorials and panels. Submissions can address theoretical issues
in network and information system security or provide practical and
operational experiences in security management. Languages for papers
and presentations can be French or English, both languages being used
in SAR-SSI. 


Authors are invited to submit research papers, papers presenting a
practical experience or new industrial applications, panel and
tutorial proposals on topics related to network and information
systems security.

Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:
