BRUSSELS, 25th FEBRUARY 2016EEMA, the European association for e-identity and security today announced the Call for Contributions for the 17th annual Information Security Solutions Europe (ISSE) conference and exhibition. This year, Europe’s leading independent interdisciplinary security event will take place in Paris on the 15th and 16th November, and will for the first time include a dedicated French track. The deadline for submissions is 8th April.

EEMA’s remit is to educate and inform its network of member contacts on the latest developments and technologies, at the same time as enabling members of the association to discuss views and ideas. The association founded ISSE in 1999 and it has since become a must attend event in the European IT security calendar.

Last year in Berlin, more than 300 delegates participated in round tables, panel debates, workshops, seminars and keynote presentations, with contribution from industry leaders including the Chief Architect of Identity at Microsoft, Kim Cameron, representatives from the academic world such as the cryptography expert, Bart Preneel, as well as senior government dignitaries, including Klaus Vitt, the Federal Government Commissioner for Information Technology and State Secretary at the Federal Ministry of the Interior, Germany.

Chairman of EEMA and member of the ISSE 2016 programme committee, Jon Shamah, comments: “We are excited to return to Paris for the seventeenth annual ISSE, which is going to be the biggest and best yet. We are looking for innovative and original research results, survey articles or case studies and position papers to present to ISSE delegates from across Europe and beyond.”

This year in Paris, ISSE will also host a half-day track dedicated to the issues affecting organisations in France and EEMA is also welcoming contributions to participate (this track will be hosted in French).

The deadline for submitting a contribution to present at ISSE 2016 is Friday 8th April 2016. For more information about the conference and exhibition and details of how make a submission visit:
