Call for Papers

         WICS'07 (http://aspects.uc3m.es/wics07)

        (in conjuction with DEXA 2007 Conference)

     With the advent of Web and  its increasing dominant force in 
industry and commerce, the Internet has become  not only a 
communications means, but also a key tool for businesses, research and 
social development. Nowadays it is possible for us to file our tax 
report, buy  books and CD's from a vendor in another continent and even 
download multimedia content to out TV, thanks to the use of those 
information networks. However,  the more information is being 
transmitted, the more probable is that we are  interested in providing 
that communication with some type of security (let it  be 
confidentiality, authenticity, non-repudiation, etc...) Furthermore, 
with  the emergence of new technologies and devices that are capable of 
getting  access to the Internet, we are also looking for solutions that 
allow these  devices to secure the information they transmit in a 
similar way that it is  done with personal computers.
     The 2007 International Workshop on Internet Communications Security 
reaches its fifth edition and  it will run in conjunction with the 
International Conference on Database and Expert Systems Applications 
(DEXA 2007).

     Original research papers on  all technical aspects of Internet 
security are solicited for submission to WICS  07. Topics of relevance 
include but are not limited to:

   Authentication and authorization
   Intrusion detection and response
   Key management
   Computer Forensics
   Mobile communications security
   Cryptography and its  applications
   Network security
   Security Interoperability
   E-Commerce security
   Non repudiation
   Information Assurance
   Security protocols
   Intellectual property protection
   Security for emerging technologies
   Security in new generation technologies for the Internet: VoIP, 
contact-less smartcards, RFID, ...
