Aims and Scope

Protecting the communication and data infrastructure of an
increasingly inter-connected world has become vital to the normal
functioning of all aspects of our world. Security has emerged as an
important scientific discipline whose many multifaceted complexities
deserve the attention and synergy of the mathematical, computer
science and engineering communities. Following the Canada-France
Meeting on Security which was held at Simon Fraser University,
Vancouver, in Dec 06-08, 2007, the First Canada-France workshop on
Foundations and Practice of Security was organized at the Universite
du Québec in Montréal, May 31 - June 2, 2008. In addition to the
scientific activities and tutorials, this Second Workshop meeting aims
to establish links, promote scientific collaboration, joint research
programs, and student exchanges between Canada and France in this
important and fast moving research field. This year the second edition
of the workshop is organized as a satellite event of CAV.  Interests
