Special Issue: “The 17th International Conference on Information Security Practice and Experience (ISPEC 2022)”

Theme and Scope

The International Conference on Information Security Practice and Experience (ISPEC) solicits papers, posters, practices, and experiences for presenting innovative research results, problem solutions, and new challenges in the field of information security. The whole spectrum of IT systems and application areas, including hardware design and software systems, with stringent relevant to security and privacy concerns are of interest to ISPEC. This year, the 17th International Conference on Information Security Practice and Experience (ISPEC 2022) will be held in Taipei, Taiwan, on November 23-25, 2022. The conference will be organized by National Dong Hwa University (NDHU), Taiwan, and co-organized by National Taiwan University of Science and Technology (NTUST), Taiwan, and National Sun Yat-sen University (NSYSU), Taiwan. The aim of ISPEC 2022 is to provide a leading edge forum to foster interaction between researchers and developers with the information security practice and experience communities, and to give attendees an opportunity to interact with experts in academia, industry, and governments. More information about the conference can be found at its website, i.e. https://ispec2022.ndhu.edu.tw/.

This special issue is to publish outstanding researches from ISPEC 2022. We plan to select the papers relevant to information security practice and experience from the accepted papers based on the reviews (comments and scores) and the presentations during the conferences. Each selected paper must be substantially extended, with at least 40% difference from its conference version.
