London to Host 1st IEEE International Workshop on Information Forensics and Security (WIFS09)


Contributed by WIFS'09 Organizing Committee

The First IEEE International Workshop on Information Forensics and Security (WIFS'09) will be held in London, UK, on 6-9 December 2009.  The event is sponsored by the IEEE Signal Processing Society and is the inaugural flagship workshop by the IEEE Information Forensics and Security Technical Committee (IFS-TC).

The WIFS organizing committee is pleased to announce a four-day program, and sincerely invites interested colleagues to join the event.  The workshop will start on Sunday 6 December 2009 with four tutorials on a variety of areas of information forensics and security.  These include:   Mobile Devices Forensics;   Privacy Enhancement Technologies - BiometricsAnalysis of Encrypted Traffic; and  DRM Beyond Access Control.

The next three days will feature renowned researchers presenting their latest results in the field.  Three keynote addresses will bring audience a broad spectrum of perspectives and insights in IFS technologies and practices:   David Benichou, a French Judge, will share an empiric approach of the fight against cybercrime in his talk titled "The Seven Cybercriminal Families."   Bruce Schneier, an internationally renowned security technologist, will speak about "Security Psychology."  Mikko Hypponen, who has led his team in F-Secure through the biggest malware outbreaks in history, will speak about "Fighting Organized Online Crime."

A Gala dinner will be held on Tuesday evening in the Crypt of the Guildhall. As the home of the City of London, Guildhall has been the center of City government since the Middle Ages.  Attendees of the IEEE WIFS 2009 will enjoy a special evening event in the East and West Crypts beneath Guildhall, which are the largest medieval crypts in London.

Interested colleagues are encouraged to register before November 15th in order to benefit of the early bird registration rate.  Questions regarding the workshop can be addressed to the organizing committee through this link.
