* Conference Background and Goals
The IADIS Security and Privacy in Computing Systems 2006 conference
addresses several themes related to both security as well as privacy in
computing systems in general and in networks in particular, and related
areas. This conference has a unique concept: it is a scientific
conference hosted virtually. This means that the quality of a
scientific conference (with the peer reviewed submissions, the
publication in a book and CD with ISBN, the possibility of best papers
being considered for publication as extended versions in journals)
comes together with the benefit of being at your office or at home and
taking part in it at any time during its 5 days duration. You choose
which sessions to attend from the conference themes offered and you can
tailor your best schedule.

* Format of the Conference
The conference will comprise invited talks and oral presentations. The
proceedings of the conference will be published in the form of a book.
The best paper authors will be invited to publish extended versions of
their papers in selected Journals like the IADIS Journal on Computer
Science and Information Systems.
