The International Conference on Security of Information and Networks (SIN 2007) provides an international forum for presentation of research and applications of security in information and networks. The SIN 2007 conference features contributed as well as invited papers, workshops and tutorials on theory and practice. Its drive is to convene a high quality, well-attended, and up-to-date conference on scientific and technical issues of security in information, networks, and systems.

Conference main theme is Information Assurance, Security, and Public Policy, that is, by another name, "Effecting Security in the Age of e-X", where X could stand for any buzzword such as commerce, tourism, banking, wallet, learning, ... Other themes vying for the top spot are ‘Security Development Lifecycle: Promises, Practices, Findings‘, ‘High-Assurance Design‘, ‘Service-Oriented Architecture (SOA) and Identity Management‘, and ‘VoIP & Wireless Access: Boon or Bust for Enterprise Security‘.

The conference main theme will be supported by invited papers and talks. The following have gracefully accepted to talk:

- Prof. Bart PRENEEL, Head of Computer Security and Industrial Cryptography (COSIC) at Katholieke Universiteit Leuven, Leuven, Belgium

- Prof. Marc Joye, Thomson R&D, France

- Prof. Elisabeth OSWALD, Cryptography and Information Security Group, University of Bristol, Bristol, UK

- Prof. Cetin Kaya KOC, Istanbul Commerce U., Turkey, & Oregon State U., USA

- Prof. Mehmet Ufuk CAGLAYAN, Bogazici U., Turkey

- Prof. Muslim BOZYIGIT, Middle East Technical U., North Cyprus

- Dr. Karthik BHARGAWAN, Microsoft Research Cambridge, UK.


Papers will be accepted into chaired presentation sessions.  Broad areas of interest in security will include, but are not limited to, the following:

Access control and intrusion detection
Cryptographic techniques and key management
Information assurance
Network security and protocols

Researchers and practitioners of security are invited to propose papers. Position papers addressing all aspects of security in information and networks are being sought. Researchers working on the following and related subjects are especially encouraged: realization of security schemes, new algorithms, experimenting with existing approaches; secure information systems, especially distributed control and processing applications, and security in networks; interoperability, service levels and quality issues in such systems; information assurance, security, and public policy. Doctoral students are encouraged to propose short papers.


Original papers will be considered; submissions must not substantially duplicate work that any of the authors has published elsewhere or has submitted in parallel to any other conference or workshop that has proceedings. All submitted papers will be reviewed by the program committee judging its originality, significance, correctness, presentation and relevance. Authors are also encouraged to propose position papers on practical studies and experiments, critique of existing work, emerging issues, and novel ideas under development.


Enterprises and research centers developing, implementing, or using security tools and frameworks are encouraged to propose application / tool demo.


Half-day tutorials on fundamental to advanced subjects covering practical implementation aspects of security are welcome.


Proposals are invited for workshops to be held in conjunction with SIN 2007 Conference. The workshop proposal theme should be closely related to the conference topics.


Conference medium will be English; papers in Turkish will be accepted as well.

Paper proposals must be submitted electronically via the SIN 2007 Submission Site. The SIN 2007 Submission Site at URL will become available by November 2006. Title, author‘s name(s), affiliation, mailing address, telephone, fax and email of the principal author should be included. Maximum length for the proceedings is ten pages for full paper, 5 pages for short paper, and two pages for demo and tutorial proposals.  All papers should be written by using LNCS/LNAI format. Please download LNCS Paper format by Clicking here (MS Word and LaTex formats are available).

Workshop proposals are submitted to the Workshops Chair, Justin Zhan (justinzh [at] by e-mail.

Tutorial proposals are submitted to the Tutorials Chair, Saban Eren (sabaneren [at] by e-mail.

All accepted papers will be published in the conference proceedings. At least one of the authors of each accepted paper must register as a full participant of the conference for the paper to be included in the proceedings.
