The 2019 Dewald Roode Workshop
on Information Systems Security Research 

IFIP WG8.11/WG11.13 Friday October 4 – Saturday October 5, 2019. Margaretville Hotel and Resort, Shreveport/Bossier Louisiana


The 2019 Dewald Roode Workshop on Information Systems Security Research is being held in conjunction with the Louisiana Tech Center for Information Assurance and the Cyber-Innovation Center of Bossier City, Louisiana. This is a venue closely affiliated with key defense industry security contractors and their cybersecurity consultancies. 

The active discussions in the workshop are intended to provide participants specific and actionable feedback on their research. We anticipate that this process will facilitate the successful development of workshop papers for further consideration at important journals (See https://ifip.byu.edu/ for past DRW papers which have been published in journals). Selection for the workshop is competitive, and only authors of the accepted papers and the active working group members will be invited to participate. A special issue of the journal Computers & Security, edited by Tom Stafford and Nicole Beebe, has been approved for competitive submissions fast-tracked from the conference. 

Anchoring the workshop to information systems means that the research will attend to and extend the social, organizational, and managerial literature in the focal area. Note that this is not an appropriate venue for papers with a purely technical, design-science, or econometric approach. While we assume an effective foundation in information security technology, we regard information systems risk broadly, for example, computer crime, employee misconduct, cyber warfare, cyber terrorism, human error and/or accident, natural events, etc. We also address information systems security broadly, for example, policies and policy compliance, diverse security behaviors, privacy, awareness, strategy, audit, planning and control. These and related research topics will be the focus of this workshop.

The 2019 Dewald Roode Workshop on Information Systems Security Research Topics may include (but are not limited to):

Submission Link: https://easychair.org/conferences/?conf=drw2019

Manuscripts will be prescreened by the program chairs to ensure that all papers sent to reviewers are reasonably complete, well-formed, and appropriate to the scope and mission of the workshop. Double blind reviews will follow for prescreened papers. Authors can submit the manuscripts as “early stage” or “completed papers.” Manuscripts must be anonymous for the review process.


In recognition that the review process greatly relies upon a scarce resource of the services of reviewers, authors, by the act of submission, are implicitly promising to serve as a reviewer on one to two conference papers, if requested.
