The conference series ICISS (International Conference on Information Systems Security), held annually, provides a forum for disseminating the latest research results in information and systems security. ICISS 2008 is the fourth in the series, following earlier conferences held at Kolkata (1st and 2nd) and Delhi (3rd). The acceptance ratio of the first three conferences has averaged less than 30%, and the proceedings have been published as part of the Springer Verlag series of Lecture Notes in Computer Science.

ICISS 2008 will be held in Hyderabad, India from December 16 to 20, 2008. Hyderabad is the capital city of Andhra Pradesh and the fifth largest city of India. In addition to its historical significance, Hyderabad is one of the major IT hubs of India, housing more than 150 major IT companies. The ICISS 2008 encourages submissions from academia, industry and government addressing theoretical and practical problems in information and systems security and related areas.
