Background and Goals
Information Systems Security is one of the most pressing challenges facing all kind of organizations today. Although many companies have discovered how critical information is to the success of their business or operations, very few have managed to be effective in keeping their information safe, in avoiding unauthorized access, preventing intrusions, stopping secret information disclosure, etc.
Nowadays, rapid technological advances are stimulating a greater use of information systems in organizations world-wide, which handle large quantities of data, managed by huge databases and datawarehouses. In addition, information systems quite frequently manage information that can be considered sensitive, since it is related to certain intimate or personal aspects of persons (beliefs, medical data, sexual tendencies, etc.) and which must be specially protected.
Many organizations, including not only companies but also governments of several countries, are now realizing how security problems can affect both business success and citizen rights, and they are proposing security policies, security planning, personal data protection laws, etc.
All of these, including technological, legislative, ethical and political factors, justifies the importance of secure information systems, and encourage us to research in new techniques, models and methodologies, which could aid designers developing and implanting safe information systems which both protect information and keep within the law.

In this new edition of WOSIS, the traditional information systems security will be maintained but taking into account also security engineering oriented to develop secure software. Therefore, topics like model driven security approach and/or security requirements elicitations are welcome in WOSIS 2009 edition

Paper Submission
Prospective authors are invited to submit papers for oral presentation in any of the topics listed above. Only full papers in English will be accepted, and the length of the paper should not exceed 10 pages.
Instructions for preparing the manuscript (in Word and Latex formats) are available at the conference Paper Templates web page. Please also check the web page with the Submission Guidelines.
Papers should be submitted electronically via the web-based submission system at: http://www.insticc.org/Primoris

All accepted papers will be published in the workshop proceedings book, under an ISBN reference, and in CD-ROM support. Additionally, the best papers will have the chance to publish extended and revised versions in a special issue of a Journal of Universal Computer Science (J.UCS) in the ISI Journal Citation Reports. The Journal of Universal Computer Science - is a high-quality electronic publication that deals with all aspects of computer science. J.UCS has been appearing monthly since 1995 and is thus one of the oldest electronic journals with uninterrupted publication since its foundation. J.UCS is published by Graz University of Technology, Austria, with the support of Know-Center, Austria and the University of Applied Sciences, Austria

Registration Information
