             CQRE [Secure] Exhibition & Congress

         Nov. 30 - Dec. 2, 1999, Duesseldorf, Germany

CQRE [Secure] Exhibition & Congress provides a new international forum
giving a close-up view on information security in the context of
rapidly evolving economic processes. The unprecedented reliance on
computer technology has transformed the previous technical side-issue
"information security" to a management problem requiring decisions of
strategic importance. Hence, the targeted audience represents decision
makers from government, industry, commercial, and academic

If you are concerned with solutions relating to the protection of your
country's information infrastructure or a commercial enterprise,
consider submitting a paper to the CQRE [Secure] Exhibition &

We are looking for papers and panel discussions covering:

Any other contribution addressing the involving of IT security in
economic processes will also be welcome. Authors are invited to submit
an extended abstract of their contribution to the program chair. The
submissions should be original research results, survey articles or
"high quality" case studies and position papers. Product
advertisements are welcome for presentation, but will not be
considered for the proceedings. Manuscripts must be in English, and
not more than 2.000 words. The extended abstracts should be in a form
suitable for anonymous review, without author's names, affiliations,
acknowledgements or obvious references. Contributions must not be
submitted in parallel to any conference or workshop that has
proceedings. Separately, an abstract of the paper with no more than
200 words and with title, name and addresses (incl. an E-mail address)
of the authors may be submitted. In case of multiple authors the

electronic submission in Postscript format. The submissions must be in

Proposals for panel discussions should also be sent to the program
chair. Panels of interest include those that present
alternative/controversial viewpoints or those that encourage lively
discussions of relevant issues. Panels that are collections of
unrefereed papers will not be considered. Panel proposals should be a
minimum of one page describing the subject matter, the appropriateness
of the panel for this conference and should identify participants and
