The world’s communication and data infrastructure becomes more and more inter-connected. Therefore, security has emerged as an important scientific subject. The aim of the workshop, the Emerging Aspects in Information Security (EAIS) workshop, is to highlight the most recent challenges and report the most recent researches and to attract researchers and practitioners from both academia and industry. Many topics will be addressed during the workshop, for example topics such as biometric technologies, cloud and big data security and the human factor in security.
– Last year’s workshop was very successful with IEEE proceedings and with indexing of FedCSIS in Web of Science. This year, the workshop focuses on research directions and trends within the field of Information Security, and plan for extending the high quality submissions for post conference book volume. The initial plan is to publish the new volume by Springer, says Ali Ismail Awad.
– Even though it involves a lot of work, it’s important for us to organize this kind of workshop since we must be aware of the cutting-edge research. It is a good experience for our research organization. We also get a chance to extend our reputation as both researchers and as a research subject, Information Systems.
Luleå University of Technology is arranging the workshop together with the Institute of Innovative Technologies EMAG. The workshop will take place under the umbrella of the Federated Conference on Computer Science and Information Systems, FedCSIS, in Lodz, Poland, in mid-September 2015.
