The 2015 European Security Conference is scheduled for June 1-2, 2015, in Lisbon, Portugal. The Conference is the European extension of the Annual Security Conference that has been held in Las Vegas (USA) for over a decade. The conference attracts a nice mix of participants from academia, government and industry. Organizers for the 2015 event is ISEG, University of Lisbon (Portugal). Administrative offices for the conference are at ISEG, University of Lisbon.
Conference theme for 2015 is: Security in the Internet of Things
The nature and scope of the Information Security field is evolving. We are no longer are we just concerned with protecting the technical edifice. Our emphasis has become more holistic, and we tend to consider both the organizational and technical aspects of information protection to be equally important. The European Security Conference provides a forum for discourses in Security, Assurance and Privacy that will define the moment and provide a useful basis for nurturing further dialogues.
Our aspiration is to develop the European Security Conference into a landmark in the security, assurance and privacy arena across Europe. We hope to facilitate discussions and build a community of interest. The Conference welcomes diverse views of managing security and privacy. These may range from being very technical to socio-organizational, and the intention is to develop informed insights into the socio-technical nature of security problems.
The conference is organized by ISEG, University of Lisbon.
