Call for papers:

The 12th International Conference on Security for Information Technology and Communications (SecITC 2019) will be held in Bucharest, Romania on November 14-15, 2019. The conference venue will be the Palace of the National Military Circle, located right in the heart of Bucharest, the capital city of Romania.
SecITC brings together computer security researchers, cryptographers, industry representatives and graduate students interested in any aspect of information security and privacy. One of SecITC’s primary goal is connecting security and privacy researchers as well as professionals from different communities and providing a forum that allows informal exchanges necessary for the emergence of new scientific and industrial collaborations. SecITC 2018 post-proceedings were published by Springer as LNCS vol. 11359, SECITC 2017 post-proceedings were published by Springer as LNCS vol. 10543, SECITC 2016 post-proceedings were published by Springer as LNCS vol. 10006 and for SECITC 2015 post-proceedings were published by Springer as LNCS vol. 9522 in a book titled “Innovative Security Solutions for Information Technology and Communications”.
Paper submission and refereeing for SECITC 2019 will take place via EasyChair and the post-proceedings will be published by Springer in the Lecture Notes in Computer Science (LNCS) series. In the year 2019, as in 2018, the board is targeting to have a stronger focus on the technologies from the Cyber Security field without impacting the Crypto focus.

The conference topics comprise all aspects of information security, including but not limited to the following areas:

  • Access control,
  • Algorithmic Tools for Security and Cryptography,
  • Application security,
  • Attacks and defences,
  • Authentication Biometry,
  • Blockchain Security and Security aspects of alternative currencies,
  • Censorship and censorship-resistance,
  • Cloud and Web Security,
  • Cryptography, biometric and watermarking,
  • Cryptology
  • Distributed systems security,
  • Embedded systems security,
  • Digital forensics,
  • Hardware security,
  • Information flow analysis,
  • Internet of Things (IoT) Security,
  • Intrusion detection and prevention system,
  • Language-based security,
  • Malware and Ransomware,
  • Mobile security,
  • Network security,

Peter Roenne


Peter Roenne received his PhD in theoretical physics in 2007 from the University of Copenhagen. He has international experience as a postdoctoral researcher in physics and mathematics at Desy, Hamburg, 2007-2009 (string theory), University of Witwatersrand, Johannesburg, 2010 (string theory), University of Cologne, 2011-2012 (condensed matter physics) and as AFR postdoctoral fellow at University of Luxembourg, 2013-2014 (mathematics). Peter changed to the field of cryptography in 2015 and joined INRIA, Nancy. His research is focused on cryptographic protocols with particular emphasis on security and usability in e-voting.
Peter joins the Applied Security and Information Assurance Group – APSIA headed by Prof. Peter Y.A. Ryan and will work on computer security, in particular in cryptography and design of e-voting protocols.
