Conference Scope

There is still a big gap between theoretical research in Computer Information Systems and the needs of innovative industrial management applications. CISIM is an opportunity to bring together researchers from all over the world to discuss effective software support for widespread use of information systems technologies. The main focus this year will be on Data Management in (possible) Untrusted Networks. Contributions are expected that address the issue of securing computer networks so as to ensure reliable data management and delivery. The conference aims at providing a forum for practitioners and researchers to exchange ideas, perspectives on problems, and new solutions. Both papers proposing novel models, methods, and algorithms and reporting experiences applying existing methods on significant case studies and industrial examples are welcome.

The topics of interest include, but are not restricted to:

  • network security models and tools
  • application security models and tools
  • security requirements definition and modelling
  • formal verification of security-relevant properties
  • security testing of legacy systems
  • data analysis
  • biometric security
  • advanced biosignal processing and modelling
  • biometric performance management
  • classification and indexing of multimedia information objects
  • multimedia security and protection
  • access control and data protection
  • web security
  • security of SaaS in cloud computing environments
  • software engineering for cloud and ubiquitous computing
  • business process engineering and execution support
  • data protection in ERP systems
  • industrial applications: Government, Finance, Retail, etc.

    The conference is supported by IFIP TC8 Information Systems.
