First Annual IFIP WG 11.10 International Conference on Critical Infrastructure Protection
The IFIP Working Group 11.10 on Critical Infrastructure Protection is an active international community of researchers, infrastructure operators and policy-makers dedicated to applying scientific principles, engineering techniques and public policy to address current and future problems in information infrastructure protection. The First Annual IFIP WG 11.10 International Conference on Critical Infrastructure Protection will provide a forum for presenting original, unpublished research results and innovative ideas related to all aspects of critical infrastructure protection. Papers and panel proposals are solicited.
Hanover, New Hampshire, USA
March 19-21, 2007
Submissions will be refereed by members of Working Group 11.10 and other internationally-recognized experts in critical infrastructure protection. Papers and panel submissions will be selected based on their technical merit and relevance to IFIP WG 11.10.
