The 9th WISTP International Conference on Information Security Theory 
and Practice (WISTP'2015)
August 24-25, 2015, Crete, Greece - http://www.wistp.org


Future ICT technologies, such as the concepts of Ambient Intelligence,
Cyber-physical Systems, and Internet of Things provide a vision of the
Information Society in which: a) people and physical systems are
surrounded with intelligent interactive interfaces and objects, and b)
environments are capable of recognising and reacting to the presence
of different individuals or events in a seamless, unobtrusive, and
invisible manner.  The success of future ICT technologies will depend
on how secure these systems are and to what extent they protect the
privacy of individuals and individuals trust them.  In 2007, Workshop
in Information Security Theory and Practice (WISTP) was created as a
forum for bringing together researchers and practitioners in related
areas and to encourage interchange and cooperation between the
research community and the industrial/consumer community. Based on the
growing interest of the participants, 2015 edition is becoming a
conference – The 9th WISTP International Conference on Information
Security Theory and Practice (WISTP'2015).

WISTP 2015 seeks original submissions from academia and industry
presenting novel research on all theoretical and practical aspects of
security and privacy, as well as experimental studies of fielded
systems, the application of security technology, the implementation of
systems, and lessons learned. We encourage submissions from other
communities such as law, business, and policy that present these
communities' perspectives on technological issues. Topics of interest
include, but are not limited to:

* Security and Privacy in Smart Devices
- Biometrics, National ID cards
- Embedded Systems Security and TPMs
- Interplay of TPMs and Smart Cards
- Mobile Codes Security
- Mobile Devices Security

papers must follow Springer guidelines (a Latex source file will be 
If a submitted paper is mainly the work of a student author, this paper 
is eligible for the best
student paper award. To participate in this selection process, please 
add the word
"STUDENT" in the affiliation field in the submission form.
Authors of accepted papers must guarantee that their papers will be 
presented at the
workshop. At least one author of each accepted paper is required to 
register with the
workshop and present the paper. For authors presenting multiple papers, 
one normal
