Security Forum Call for Papers
Call for papers for lectures at the ICT security conference of the Hagenberger Kreis zur
Förderung der digitalen Sicherheit, on April 09 and 10, 2014 at the University of
Applied Sciences Upper Austria, Campus Hagenberg.
The Security Forum is Hagenberg’s annual ICT security conference which addresses
current issues in this domain. Traditionally, it takes place on two days in April. On
both days, visitors are offered technical as well as management-oriented lectures by
representatives of business, research and public service. On the second day there will be some presentations from the security labs of our department.
We are happy to welcome over 200 participants from Austria, Germany and Switzerland
working in various companies and areas of expertise surrounding ICT security every year
as well as international guests and lecturers.
The first Security Forum in 2003 proved to be a great success for our sponsors, our
partners and the Hagenberger Kreis. Over the years the Security Forum has distinguis-hed itself through the presence of renowned lecturers, domestic as well as from abroad.
We are proud to have welcomed Prof. Louis Marinos (ENISA), Prof. Reinhard Posch
(CIO of the Federal Government of Austria), Prof. Edward Humphreys (“father” of the
ISO/IEC 27000 family), Prof. Vincent Rijmen (co-inventor of the AES encryption algo-rithm), Andreas Lamm, MBA (Kaspersky Labs Europe), Shimon Gruper (Aladdin) and
Oberst dG Walter Unger (BMLVS Abwehramt) among many others. The host provides
refreshments and catering on both days. The first day ends with a pleasant get-together,
which will be accompanied by a band.
Founded in March 2002 by students of the “Computer and Media Security” degree
programme at the University of Applied Sciences in Hagenberg, the Hagenberger Kreis is
dedicated to fostering Hagenberg as a place of study and leisure, and, more importantly,
to furthering ICT security awareness in public.
