CALL FOR WORKSHOPS: The 4th International Conference for Internet Technology and Secured Transactions (ICITST-2009)

The 4th International Conference for Internet Technology and Secured Transactions (ICITST-2009), Technical Co-Sponsored by IEEE UK/RI Section, November 9–12, 2009, London, UK (

The purpose of these workshops is to provide a platform for presenting novel ideas in a less formal and possibly more focused way than the conferences themselves. It offers a good opportunity for young researchers to present their work and to obtain feedback from an interested community. The format of each workshop is to be determined by the organisers, but it is expected that they contain ample time for general discussion. The preference is for one day workshops, but other schedules will also be considered.

The ICITST-2009 encourages you to submit workshop proposals. Workshop duration can be one day or one and half day. All the accepted papers will be included in the conference proceedings. You can consider organising a workshop that is related to ICITST-2009 topics.

Your workshop proposals will be reviewed by the Steering Committees and all the accepted papers will appear in the proceedings published by IEEE and fully indexed by IEEE Xplore and DBLP.
