Norwegian Information Security Conference

Call for papers

The 8th Norwegian Information Security Conference, NISK 2015, takes place at Ålesund University College in Ålesund in the period 23 – 25 November 2015. NISK 2015 is organised in conjunction with NIK 2015 and NOKOBIT 2015, and is sponsored by the FRISC network for national ICT security research, funded by the Norwegian Research Council NFR. NISK brings together people working in ICT security mainly from the national community, but also from the international community.

We invite researchers, practitioners, Master’s and PhD students to submit contributions to NISK 2015. Master’s students in particular – who normally do not publish at conferences – are encouraged to submit papers describing their Master’s thesis work. Independent reviewers will review all submissions. Accepted papers will be published in the conference proceedings by Bibsys Open Journal Systems. NISK publications give publication points at level 1.

NISK 2014 invites full length paper submissions that report ongoing or finished research (maximal 12 pages), or short papers of early stage work (maximal 4 pages). Student submissions can be either long or short papers, and up to four accepted student submissions will receive support in the form of conference fee waivers. Papers can be written in Norwegian or English and should be formatted according to the NIK layout. Papers formatted with LaTeX can use the NIK LaTeX class.
