Information warfare and security are at the forefront of modern defence strategies. Strong strands of research and interest are developing in the area, including the understanding of threats and risks to information systems, the development of a strong security culture, as well as incident detection and post incident investigation. The International Conference on Information Warfare and Security (ICIW) offers an opportunity for academics, practitioners and consultants from the US, North America and elsewhere who are involved in the study, management, development and implementation of systems and concepts related to information warfare or are interested in ways to improve information systems security, to come together and exchange ideas. This conference is continuing to establish itself as a key event for individuals working in the field from around the world.

The advisory group for the conference invites submissions of papers on both the theory and practice of all aspects of Information Warfare and Security.

Important information

The selection panel of the conference committee will consider all abstracts received by the submission deadline to ensure that the proposed paper is relevant to the Conference. The authors of abstracts that describe a relevant paper will receive a notification of abstract selection. All full papers will be double-blind reviewed by members of the conference committee to ensure an adequate standard, that the proposed subject of their abstract has been followed, that the paper is of a suitable length, the standard of English is adequate and the paper is appropriately referenced. Papers that are accepted will be published in the conference proceedings providing at least one author registers and presents the work at the Conference (see the registration section of the conference website for more information about registration). Due to the large number of papers expected for this conference, the committee only allows an author to present one paper. Therefore if multiple papers are accepted for presentation different co-authors need to present each paper.
