NISK 2020 Call for papers

The 13th annual Norwegian Information Security Conference (NISK) 2020 will take place at Sundvolden Hotel, 23-25 November 2020, co-located with the NIKT conferences.

The aim of the NISK conference series is to be the principal Norwegian research venue for presenting and discussing developments in the field of ICT security and privacy, and bringing together people from universities, industry, and public authorities.

We invite both national and international contributions by researchers, practitioners, and PhD- and Master thesis students presenting new problems and solutions within topics on ICT security.

The accepted and presented papers will be collected and published in the open access NISK journal publication. Several NISK proceedings of recent years can be found at the Bibsys Open Journal System.
