3rd Summer School on Network and Information Security (NIS’10)

Friday, August 6th, 2010

13-17 September 2010, Heraklion, Crete, Greece

Call for Participation

The European Network and Information Security Agency (ENISA) and the Institute of Computer Science (ICS) of the Foundation for Research and Technology – Hellas (FORTH) invite you to the jointly organised 3rd ENISA-FORTH Summer School on Network and Information Security (NIS’10).

The “Future Internet” promises an exciting new world of services and capabilities: Devices that will  automatically exchange information to facilitate users, services that transparently and seamlessly combine information from different and multiple sources, protocols and systems that are able to handle complex interactions. At the same time, however, concerns about privacy and security increase for individuals, organizations, and the society in general. This gives rise to a number of question such as where should responsibility be placed and how should solutions be enforced and verified in a world of complex infrastructures and services?

Following the success of NIS’08 and NIS’09, the 3rd edition of the Summer School on Network and Information Security (NIS’10) will cover topics that address legal, technical, and policy issues in this emerging world. The Summer School aims to provide a forum for experts in Information Security, policy makers from EU Member States and EU Institutions, decision makers from the industry, as well as members of the research and academic community, for interacting on cuttingedge and interesting topics in NIS.
