Recent advances in computer and communication technologies require the necessity of processing, storing, and sharing information in electronic environments securely. Hence, the information security awareness should be promoted to people who transfer information in the electronic environments. Moreover, they should be informed about current advances in information security on both software and hardware platforms.
A powerful information security can be achieved by innovative research conducted in the field of "Information Security and Cryptology", which will eventually result in secure information processing in the electronic environments as well as wider usage of information, faster information processing, and increment in efficiency. We are hoping that the "Information Security and Cryptology" conferences will improve the information security and cryptology research in Turkey and also improve the collaboration among academia, industry and government institutes. One of our major goals is to make "Information Security and Cryptology" an internationally recognized conference which will have a different topic for each year.
To this end, the primary goals of this conference are;
To bring together the researchers in academia and industry who are working on information security and cryptology to share their knowledge and experience,
