About Us

The 17th International Conference on Security of Information and Networks (SIN-2024) provides an excellent international forum for sharing knowledge and results in theory, methodology, and applications of Security in information and networks. Papers, special sessions, tutorials, and workshops addressing all aspects and issues of security in information and networks are being pursued. The conference invites significant contributions from researchers and industrial working of developing cryptographic algorithms, security schemes, cryptanalysis, application security, system security, cloud security, IoT security, and network security. The conference aims to provide a platform for researchers and practitioners from academia and industry to meet and share cutting-edge advancements in information and network security.

The University of Technology Sydney (UTS) is a vibrant young global university located in a vibrant young global city. It’s distinctiveness lies at the intersection of technology, creativity and innovation. The university is considered among the top universities in the world by both the QS (90th) and Times Higher Education (148th) global rankings. UTS is widely known for its innovative learning and teaching approach, which integrates the best of online and face-to-face experiences. Students benefit from an immersive career-focused education, coupled with strong links to industry. They’re prepared for tomorrow, in a way which is relevant today.

The university’s inner-city campus has recently been transformed through a $1.5 billion investment, which has delivered four award winning buildings, including internationally-renowned architect Frank Gehry’s first Australian venture. Imbued with collaborative spaces and technological capabilities, the distinctive campus is a physical embodiment of UTS’ progressive traits. UTS research spans a range of disciplines, including health, data sciences, sustainability, applied economics, social futures, robotics, civil engineering, future work, microbiology, and quantum computation. One hundred per cent of UTS’ broad fields of research are benchmarked by the Australian Government at world standard or above, while almost 80 per cent of UTS research is assessed at having a ‘high’ impact beyond the academic – the highest proportion in the country. Above all, UTS believes in the value of real-world experience and innovation for its students, and making a positive impact on the world around it.

    IFEEC2024 is financially sponsored by ISCITA (ABN 78580581267). ISCITA is a not for profit association formed in 2011 by Prof. Eryk Dutkiewicz. Current office holders are Prof. Eryk Dutkiewicz. (Chair), Prof Xiaojing Huang (Vice-Chair), Prof. Ren Ping Liu (Vice-Chair), Dr Ying He (Secretary) and Dr Diep Nguyen (Treasurer). ISCITA was formed to act as a fianncial and contracting entity for international Engineering and Science conferences in Australia. ISCITA fills a role that Australian Universities no longer want, accepting the risk associated with running a major international event, but which international societies like IEEE insist is undertaken by a not-for-profit organisation.

The invitation letter will include conference title, dates and location, and it will state if you are an author, speaker, committee member or attendee.

    If you are a presenting author with an accepted paper you can generate the invitation letter direct from EDAS by going to your paper and clicking on the visa icon (see image below).

    No invitation letter will be issued until your registration has been completed, confirmed and paid.

    Other Invitation Letters

    If you need an invitation letter and you are not a presenting author, or you need an invitation letter with a signature to keep a bureaucrat happy please complete this form.

    The IFEEC2024 Local Arrangements Chair will then produce the letter and send it to you via email within five days of receiving your request. Please indicate in your request if you require your invitation to be sent to you by physical mail (allow extra time for postal delay).
