FALL 2015

I want to thank all subscribers and authors for your support of the Journal of Information Warfare (JIW). The number of papers submitted has increased dramatically; and, as always, we welcome new submissions. Our rigorous double-blind peer-review process remains unchanged: through this process, we are able to collect objective feedback for all submissions. In addition to our regular issues, we continue to produce a special edition each April with the National Security Agency (NSA). In 2016, we will also be collaborating with USCYBERCOM for this special edition.

In the meantime, our readers and contributors should know we are hard at work on the task of rebuilding the JIW website. This reconstruction marks an important point in the journal’s history. Our staff is energized by this effort and intends to create a website that is not only completely updated, but is also even more user friendly than the current website. Of course, we will announce the completion of this project in a future issue.

Meanwhile, our readers will want to mark their calendars for the upcoming ICCWS conference to be held in March 2016 at Boston University and to begin contemplating and planning for the next three ECWWS conferences that are tentatively set, as shown below:

  • The 15th European Conference on Cyber Warfare & Security will be held on 7-8 July 2016 and the Bundeswehr University in Munich.
  • The 16th European Conference on Cyber Warfare & Security will be held at University College Dublin in July 2017.
  • The 17th European Conference on Cyber Warfare & Security will be held in Oslo, Norway in July 2018.
  • The 18th European Conference on Cyber Warfare & Security will be held at the University of Coimbra in Portugal in July 2019.

There’s much to look forward to in 2016, and we are grateful for the collaborative opportunities the coming year will provide for the JIW, its readers, and its contributors. 

Cheers,


AUTHORS
