The Sixth International Workshop on Security in Information Systems was held in conjunction with ICEIS 2008 in Barcelona, Spain. As in previous years, this workshop served as a meeting point, bringing together researchers from academia and commercial developers from industry to review the current state of the art in Security in Information Systems. Papers presenting the most recent theoretical, and practical works in security for Information Systems were received, a total of 21 submissions. This year the number of submitted papers has considerably decreased, maybe due to the high number of new security conferences held recently. All submissions were reviewed by at least three program committee members. Finally, we accepted 10 full papers, and 6 short papers. Unfortunately, some good papers had to be rejected because they did not correspond to WOSIS’08 criteria. As is tradition in WOSIS as part of the works selection, the best papers are included in an extended and revised
version in a prestigious journal. We especially want to thank Professor Sidney Morris for his outstanding support throughout the whole process in publishing the best WOSIS’08 papers in the Journal of Research and Practice in Information Technology. In this new edition, Dr. Eduardo B. Fernández has honoured us with his great experience offering the keynote speech of WOSIS 2008. We want to acknowledge his contribution which we hope you have found inspiring. It is also our pleasure to thank the members of both the program committee and the members of the organisation committee for all their hard work, dedication and commitment to the success of the project. Finally, we gratefully acknowledge all the authors who submitted papers, accepted or not, to WOSIS 2008 for their efforts, and we hope to receive new contributions for WOSIS 2009. Also the participants who together made this workshop an intellectually successful event through their active contributions. As a final point, we sincerely hope that you enjoyed not only the workshop technical program, but also the cosmopolitan city of Barcelona during your free time.
