CALL FOR PARTICIPATION IMF 2008 4th International Conference on IT Incident Management & IT Forensics Mannheim, Germany September 23 - 25, 2008 http://www.imf-conference.org/ mailto:2008@imf-conference.org
------------------------------------------------------------------------

Information technology has become crucial to almost every part of society. IT infrastructures have become critical in the world-wide economy, the financial sector the health sector, the government's administration, the military, and the educational sector.

Although security usually gets involved in the design process of IT systems nowadays, the process of maintaining security in the operation of IT infrastructures, in most cases, still lacks the appropriate attention. The capability to manage and respond to IT security incidents and their forensic analysis are not well established. The quickly rising number of security incidents worldwide makes the implementation of incident management capabilities essential.

In order to advance the fields of IT Security Incident Management and IT Forensics the special interest-group "Security Intrusion Detection and Response" (SIDAR) of the German Informatics Society (GI) organizes an annual conference, providing a platform for experts from throughout the world, to discuss the state of the art in the areas of IT Security Incident Management and IT Forensics (IMF). IMF promotes collaboration and exchange of ideas between industry, academia, law-enforcement and other government bodies.

The IMF conference will be held for the fourth time in 2008. The concept matured from a pure academic event to an academic track section complemented by practical workshops. In addition, IMF has become an important community event. This year IMF starts to travel. The Mannheim University of Cooperative Education (Berufsakademie Mannheim) will host the fourth IMF.

It is planned to continue to find hosts for IMF at different locations in order to widen the community and to learn from different perspectives.
