About the Conference
The 3rd conference on Advances in Computer Security and Forensics (ACSF 2008) will take place at Liverpool John Moores University on 10th and 11th July 2008.
Today’s wide scale adoption of technology has brought many social and cultural benefits. Yet, it harbours many technical and social challenges. At the forefront of these is the protection of our systems and the public. Computer security aims to preserve a system’s confidentiality, integrity and availability through a wide range of countermeasures. Computer forensics, on the other hand, attempts to ascribe culpability or responsibility for an event or set of events. There is a degree of overlap in the material used by both fields, albeit for different purposes. Therefore, both fields have much commonality and differences that may be shared to the benefit of their respective disciplines.
Following on from last year's successful event, the aim of the conference is to draw a wide range of participants from the national and international research community as well as current practitioners within the fields of computer security and computer forensics. The conference will be organised into a number of tracks led by both academics and practitioners, and will include refereed paper presentations, panel discussions and invited talks based on the submissions received and the interests expressed.
