- Co-Sponsored by IFIP WG 11.2 Small System Security
- In Cooperation with the IEEE Computer Society, Technical Committee on
  Security and Privacy (TCSP)
- In Cooperation with the IEEE Computer Society, Task Force on
  Information Assurance (TFIA)
- supported by the Greek Computer Society

WISTP2007 Background and Goals:

With the rapid technological development of information technologies,
computer systems and especially embedded systems are becoming more
mobile and ubiquitous, increasingly interfacing with the physical world.
Ensuring  the security of these complex and yet, resource constraint
systems has emerged as one of the most pressing challenges.
The aim of this first workshop is to bring together researchers and
practitioners in related areas and to encourage interchange and
cooperation between the research community and the industrial/consumer

The workshop will consist of technical paper presentations, one special
session for student papers and three invited talks.
To contribute to the structuring of the community, a networking meeting
to discuss EU FP7 projects proposals will take place just after the

Submission Details:

Authors are invited to submit original papers (written in English) not
previously published nor submitted in parallel for publication to any
other conference, workshop or journal. All submissions will be
subjected to thorough blind review by at least three reviewers (if the
paper involved a Program Committee member, the paper will be reviewed
at least by five reviewers). All submitted papers should be anonymous
with no author(s) names, affiliations, acknowledgments, nor obvious

Each paper should begin with a title, a short abstract, and a list of
keywords, following the template indicated by Springer at:

The papers will be in .pdf format, at most 10 pages long excluding
bibliography and well-marked appendices, and at most 14 pages long in
total, using at least 11-point fonts with reasonable margins. As the
reader should not be required to read any appendices, the paper should
be intelligible even without them.

At least one author of each accepted paper is required to register
with the Conference and present the paper. For authors presenting
multiple papers, one normal registration is valid for up to two

     * 400€ for the best student paper
     * 400€ for the best workshop paper

Some accepted papers written by French-speaking authors will be
published in a journal of the SEE (in a french version).

Opportunities for students:
To help the students looking for a PhD thesis or a postdoctoral
position, we will propose them to add a colorized sticker on their
badge. In the same way, we will propose to persons offering these
positions to add a sticker with a different color. We hope this
mechanism will help to support the exchanges between young and senior

We hope you will be interested by this event.
