Call For Paper

WISA is one of the main security research venues hosted by the Korea Institute of Information Security and Cryptology (KIISC) and sponsored by the Ministry of Science, ICT and Future Planning (MSIP), and co-sponsored by the Electronics & Telecommunications Research Institute (ETRI), the Korea Internet & Security Agency (KISA), and the National Security Research Institute (NSRI). Especially, in 2019, WISA will celebrate its 20th anniversary while going toward its new position as the best contributor to information security applications.

The primary focus of WISA 2019 will be on systems and network security including all other technical and practical aspects of security applications. This year, in particular, we will be inviting participations from researchers working on 5G, Blockchain, V2X, and Advanced IoT who are keen on bringing the latest open security challenges.
