The nature and scope of the Information Security field is evolving. We are
no longer are we just concerned with protecting the technical edifice. Our
emphasis has become more holistic, and we tend to consider both the
organizational and technical aspects of information protection to be
equally important. The European Security Conference provides a forum for
discourses in Security, Assurance and Privacy that will define the moment
and provide a useful basis for nurturing further dialogues.

The European Security Conference facilitates interactions amongst
researchers and practitioners in the field of  security, assurance and
privacy in Europe and beyond. We hope to facilitate discussions and build a
community of interest. The Conference welcomes diverse views of managing
security and privacy. These may range from being very technical to
socio-organizational, and the intention is to develop informed insights
into the socio-technical nature of security problems.

The 2015 European Security Conference is scheduled for June 1-2, 2015, in
Lisbon, Portugal. The Conference is the European extension of the Annual
Security Conference that has been held in Las Vegas (USA) for over a
decade. The conference attracts a nice mix of participants from academia,
government and industry. Organizers for the 2015 event is ISEG, University
of Lisbon (Portugal).

Conference theme for 2015 is: *Security in the Internet of Things*
