The conference series ICISS (International Conference on Information Systems Security), held annually, provides a forum for disseminating the latest research results in information and systems security. The acceptance ratio of the past four conferences has averaged less than 30%, and the proceedings have been published as part of the Springer Verlag series of Lecture Notes in Computer Science. The conference encourages submissions addressing theoretical and practical problems in information and systems security and related areas. We especially like to encourage papers in domains that have not been represented much in the past at the conference, such as database security/privacy, usability aspects of security, and smartphone security. Papers that introduce and address unique security challenges or present thought-provoking ideas are also welcome. Topics of interest include but are not limited to:

Application Security
Authentication and Access Control
Biometric Security
Cryptographic Protocols
Data Security
Digital Forensics and Diagnostics
Digital Rights Management
Distributed System Security
Formal Methods in Security
Intrusion Detection, Prevention and Response
Intrusion Tolerance and Recovery
Key Management and Cryptographic Protocols
Language-based Security
Malware Analysis and Mitigation
Network Security
Operating System Security

Privacy and Anonymity
Security in P2P, Sensor and Ad Hoc Networks
Smartphone Security
Software Security
Vulnerability Detection and Mitigation
