WISTP2018 SPONSORSHIP OPPORTUNITIES

Sponsorship of the 12th WISTP International Conference on Information Security Theory and Practice (WISTP'2018), which will take place in Brussels from December 10-11, 2018 is open. WISTP provides a premier forum for bringing together leading researchers and practitioners in related areas and to encourage interchange and cooperation between the research community and the industrial/consumer community.
Based on the growing interest of the participants, since 2015 WISTP is a conference and WISTP2018 will include a highly selective single-track program for technical papers, accompanied by posters, videos, demonstrations, and several invited speakers from both academical and industrial research world.

Industry involvement plays an important role in the success of WISTP (see 2007, 2008, 2009, 2010, 2011, 2013, 2014, 2015, 2016 and 2017). Over the last years the workshop was supported by several major companies (Atos Origin, Crisp Telecom, Eurosmart, Huawei, Intel, Juniper Networks, Microsoft, Nokia, OPTET, SCM Microsystems, Symantec, Trusted Computing Group, Vodafone, Xiring, etc.) and by several scientific organizations (ACM, IEEE, IFIP, ERCIM, INSTICC, etc.) and significant European projects (OPTET, CIPSEC, VirtuWind, SHARCS).

Important note: The main objective of the sponsorship for us is to reduce the registration fees of the attendees and thus to increase the number of attendees. The potential surplus of the conference will be reinvested in the next editions.
