Stylized Image of the Word Editorial

Winter 2017

We certainly live in interesting times. Just look at the Image of desk top keysUnited States presidential election in 2016. Which of the following were at play? Partisan politics? Russian interference?  Information Warfare?  An act  of  war? All of the above? Or, none of the above? The articles in this latest edition of the Journal of Information Warfare cover issues and ideas as wide-ranging as the possibilities so characteristic of our current times. We hope you enjoy these papers.

For those looking for additional opportunities to publish academic articles in these areas, the
16th European Conference on Cyber Warfare and Security will be held at University College Dublin in June 2017. Following that, the 13th International Conference on Cyber Warfare and Security will be hosted by the National Defense University (NDU) in Washington, D.C., in March 2018; the 17th European Conference on Cyber Warfare and Security will be held in Oslo, Norway in July 2018; and the 18th European Conference on Cyber Warfare and Security will be held at the University of Coimbra in Portugal in July 2019.

In addition, Edith Cowan University’s Security Research Institute in Perth, Australia, is holding the 2017 SRI Security Congress in the late November-early December timeframe, in Perth, Australia. All of the conferences of this federated series are co-located and offer attendees the opportunity to interact with a number of different, but inter-related cyber events and lectures:
