   9th International Symposium on Foundations & Practice of Security
     (FPS 2016), Quebec city, QC, Canada, 24-26 October 2016

** Early Bird Registration until October 10, 2016 **


The aim of FPS is to discuss and exchange theoretical and practical
ideas that address security issues in inter-connected systems. It aims
to provide scientific presentations as well as to establish links,
promote scientific collaboration, joint research programs, and student
exchanges between institutions involved in this important and fast
moving research field.

The Foundations & Practice of Security (FPS) Symposium started as a
Franco-Canadian meeting sponsored by MITACS, INRIA and Institut
Mines-Telecom, and has since 2011 grown to be an international event
on its own. After the previous meetings held in Clermont-Ferrand,
La Rochelle, Montreal, Grenoble, Toronto and Paris, this 9th edition
of the FPS symposium will be held in Quebec City, Canada.
