International Workshop on Secure Data Engineering

International Workshop on Secure Data Engineering (IWSDE-16)

 in conjunction with

World Congress on Internet Security (WorldCIS-2016)


November 14 – 16, 2016, London, UK

The aim of this workshop is to bring together researchers and practitioners from academia and industry to discuss and advance the state of the art in the development and security of applications processing data. Data Engineering is a research topic that has been in existence for decades, but the introduction of cloud computing has brought new challenges and solutions. These technological changes promise to change the implementation, usage and management of data in both the public and the private sector. The adoption of new algorithms and architectures by organizations clearly carries significant benefits to the computing research community, such as dynamic provisioning of data and software to support project tasks. However, there are also associated challenges that must be considered before a widespread deployment of these new architectures and algorithms.

Original papers are invited on all relevant topics of Data Engineering but papers on or related to the topics listed below are particularly welcome.
