|Registration Date: Mar 05, 2010|
|Early Registration Date: Feb 01, 2010|
Information warfare and computer security are at the forefront of modern defence Cyber 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 in addition to the offensive areas associated with information operations such as perception management and strategic communications. 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 welcomes both academic and practitioner papers on a wide range of topics and a wide range of scholarly approaches including theoretical and empirical papers employing qualitative, quantitative and critical methods. Research in progress, case studies, poster submissions, proposals for roundtable discussions, practitioner contributions, and product demonstrations based on the main themes are also invited.

There are no mini tracks as yet for ICIW 2010. If you would be interested in preparing and chairing a mini track, please contact the Conference Director, Sue Nugus outlining your suggested topic.
Papers should address the conference topics listed above and can describe a wide range of research including empirical or theoretical studies. In addition, philosophical papers presenting an argument and papers presenting a process that has been developed and is now ready for wider use are welcome. In all cases concepts and underlying principles should be emphasized, with enough background information to orient any reader who is not a specialist in the particular subject area original. The work should not have been published elsewhere and should not be intended to be published elsewhere during the review period.
Research in Progress
Researchers may submit current projects whilst they are still in progress. To be eligible, it is necessary for a paper to be produced to a publishable academic standard and papers will be subject to the same criteria and processes as research papers. However the final results of the research may not have been fully completed and interpreted.
Case Study Submissions
Case study submissions should be written to publishable standards. Case studies will be subject to the same criteria and the processes as research papers.
Posters provide an opportunity for researchers to present their work in an informal setting in which there is more time for discussion and questions than is sometimes available in a full paper session. This track is an ideal forum for the presentation of work in progress. Poster submissions are welcomed in any of the areas identified in the call for papers.
Poster submission requirements
An abstract describing the work being presented on the poster should be submitted in accordance with the submission details below. Be sure to select Poster as the submission type.
Poster abstracts will be blind reviewed by a member of the programme committee. Reviewers will be asked to consider the appropriateness of the work for poster presentation.
On acceptance instructions on poster dimensions etc will be supplied.
Poster abstracts and images of the final poster will be published in the CD version of the Conference Proceedings.
At least one person must register for the conference to present the poster.
Posters will be displayed close to the refreshment area so that all who attend will have an opportunity to see them. There will be a timetabled period when Poster Owners should staff their poster so that participants can come and discuss the research.
Round Table Proposals
The Programme Committee invites topical subjects to be proposed for discussion.
An abstract proposing a topic and stating why it is felt this would be an interesting contribution to the conference should be submitted in accordance with the submission details below. Be sure to select Round Table Proposal as the submission type.
Proposals will be considered by the programme committee.
If a proposal is selected the convenor will be asked to nominate knowledge informants in the field who will be prepared to participate. Round Table Discussions can be either 30 minutes or 1 hour in duration. The convenor must register for the conference.
Other participants can attend the Round Table without conference registration, but if they wish to attend any other part of the conference registration will be required.
The conference committee welcomes contributions from individuals and organisations working in the field. These contributions can take the form of a presentation or a demonstration.
An abstract describing the work to be presented should be submitted in accordance with the submission details below. Be sure to select Practitioner Contribution as the submission type.
Practitioner abstracts will be reviewed by the programme committee. Reviewers will be asked to consider the appropriateness of the work for presentation at the conference.
Authors of selected presentations will have their abstract included in the booklet of abstracts given to participants at the conference.
At least one person must register for the conference to give the presentation.
Submit a proposal of 200-300 words describing a product you wish to demonstrate and the audience it serves. Proposals should be sent as email attachments to Sue Nugus ( firstname.lastname@example.org ) not later than 5 November 2009. Demonstrations themselves are expected to be approximately 15 minutes in length.
The Abstract should be a minimum of 300 and no more than 500 words including keywords to be received by 17 September 2009 Please read the Abstract Guidelines section of the website before submitting.
Online via the submission form. Please ensure that you complete all relevant sections of the form, including the conference track the abstract is intended for, the proposed title for the paper, the full names (first name and surname, not initials) and email addresses of all authors and a postal address and telephone number for at least one contact author. Please indicate clearly if the contact author is not the lead author.
Only required after acceptance of abstract and not to be more than 5,000 words including abstract, keywords and references. Submission date will be no later than 5 November 2009. Papers should be submitted as .doc or .rtf file attachments by email to the Conference Manager, Elaine Hayne.
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, which describe a relevant paper, will receive a notification of abstract acceptance. 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. Author registration must be completed by 4 March 2010.
Papers accepted for the conference will be published in the conference proceedings, subject to author registration. The proceedings for this conference are listed in the Thomson Reuters ISI Index to Scientific and Technical Proceedings (ISTP/ISI Proceedings), the Thomson Reuters ISI Index to Social Sciences & Humanities Proceedings (ISSHP) and the Thomson Reuters ISI Index to Social Sciences & Humanities Proceedings (ISSHP/ISI Proceedings).
Selected papers from the Conference will be considered for publication in a special issue of the Journal of Information Warfare: http://www.jinfowar.com. Additionally, selected papers from the conference will be considered for publication in the International Journal of Electronic Security and Digital Forensics published by Inderscience UK (ISSN:1751-1911X).
