06/01/2010 This year ISC is experimenting with a new approach for its official proceedings. Following the reviewing period, authors of all accepted papers will be asked to provide lightly revised pre-proceeding versions of their papers. Informal pre-proceedings will be distributed at the conference. After the conference, final versions of all papers will be due by November 10, 2010 and the Springer LNCS volume will be published in late December. The main benefit of the pre-proceedings model is the opportunity to revise papers, taking into account feedback obtained at the presentation and during the conference.

The Information Security Conference (ISC) is an annual international conference covering research in theory and applications of Information Security. ISC aims to attract high quality papers in all technical aspects of information security. It was first initiated as a workshop in Japan in 1997 (ISW'97, LNCS 1396), ISW 1999 in Malaysia (LNCS 1729), ISW 2000 in Australia (LNCS 1975) and then changed to the current name ISC when it was held in Spain in 2001 (ISC'01, LNCS 2200). The latest conferences were held in Brazil (ISC'02, LNCS 2433), UK (ISC'03, LNCS 2851), USA (ISC'04, LNCS 3225), Singapore (ISC'05, LNCS 3650), Greece (ISC'06, LNCS 4176), and Chile (ISC'07, LNCS 4779), Taiwan (ISC'08, LNCS 5222), Italy (ISC'09, LNCS 5735)
