Dear WISE Community,

The WISE 2023 conference this year has been canceled. We thank you for your interest and support, but paper submissions this year were below a number sufficient to hold the peer review process and produce a full published journal. The SEC2023 conference will be proceeding as normal, though their paper deadline has passed.

We’re still very enthusiastic about WISE and the goals of global information security education, and will plan on holding the conference in 2024. There were a number of factors we’ve identified that have contributed to the low participation. We’ll develop a strategy that can make a robust conference next year.

In the meantime, please consider submitting to HAISA 2023, to be held in Canterbury, UK. This is a similar conference and you have a few days until their May 1, 2023 deadline for the conference, July 4th-6th.

If you have any ideas, feedback, or general comments, please let me know and we’ll definitely take those into account as we plan WISE 2024.

Best regards,

Erik Moore
