Welcome to IAS 2012 and São Carlos!
Conference Theme: Innovative Cyber Security: Protecting Nations Beyond Borders'
Information assurance and security has become an important research issue in the networked and distributed information sharing environments. Finding effective ways to protect information systems, networks and sensitive data within the critical information infrastructure is challenging even with the most advanced technology and trained professionals. The Eighth International Conference on Information Assurance and Security (IAS) aims to bring together researchers, practitioners, developers, and policy makers involved in multiple disciplines of information security and assurance to exchange ideas and to learn the latest development in this important field.
The conference is expected to provide an opportunity for the researchers to meet and discuss the latest solutions, scientific results and methods in solving intriguing problems in the fields of IAS. The conference programme will include workshops, special sessions and tutorials, along with prominent keynote speakers and regular paper presentations in parallel tracks. All accepted papers will be compiled in conference proceedings published by the IEEE. The General Chairs, along with the entire team cordially invite you to submit your latest research results and to take part in the upcoming conference, to be held during November 21-23 in São Carlos, Brazil.
