The Information Security Conference (ISC) is an annual international conference covering research in theory and applications of Information Security. ISC aims to attract high quality papers in all technical aspects of information security. It was first initiated as a workshop in Japan in 1997 (ISW'97, LNCS 1396), Malaysia (ISW'99, LNCS 1729), and Australia (ISW'00, LNCS 1975), and then changed to the current name ISC when it was held in Spain in 2001 (ISC'01, LNCS 2200). Later conferences were held in Brazil (ISC'02, LNCS 2433), UK (ISC'03, LNCS 2851), California, USA (ISC'04, LNCS 3225), Singapore (ISC'05, LNCS 3650), Greece (ISC'06, LNCS 4176), Chile (ISC'07, LNCS 4779), Taipei, Taiwan (ISC'08, LNCS 5222), Italy (ISC'09, LNCS 5735), Florida, USA (ISC'10, LNCS 6531), China (ISC'11, LNCS 7001), Germany (ISC'12, LNCS 7483), and Dallas, USA (ISC'13).Hong Kong (ISC'14), Norway (ISC'15), Hawaii, USA (ISC’16).

The 20th Information Security Conference (ISC'17) will be held in Ho Chi Minh city, Viet Nam. This event is hosted by Vietnamese German University (VGU) in Ho Chi Minh city, Viet Nam. The conference seeks submissions from academia, industry, and government that present novel research on all theoretical and practical aspects of Information Security.
