International Workshop on Information Security Methodology and Replication Studies (IWSMR)
InfoSec Conference Summary
The description was submitted by the Conference Organizer. We sometimes edit it to enhance the listing.
In recent years, research started to focus on the scientific fundamentals of information security. These fundamentals include several important aspects such as the unified description of attacks and countermeasures, the reproducibility of experiments and means to achieve reproducibility, the sharing of research data and code, the discussion of quality criteria for experiments and the design and implementation of testbeds.
The related academic publications contributed to the advancement of information security research, e.g. by making research contributions easier to compare. Moreover, work on terminology and taxonomy addressed redundancies and unified the understanding between different sub-domains of information security.
This workshop desires to foster the progress in research on the scientific methodology of information security, to improve the links between sub-domains of information security research and to advance the discussion on the scientific methodology in information security. Moreover does this workshop welcome submissions that evaluate existing research results by reproducing experiments.
