Dear colleague,
We are writing to invite you to participate in sponsoring the 10th WISTP International Conference on Information Security Theory and Practice (WISTP'2016), which will take place in Heraklion from September 26-27, 2016. This annual event on Information Security Theory and Practice provides a premier forum for bringing together leading researchers and practitioners in related areas and to encourage interchange and cooperation between the research community and the industrial/consumer community.
Based on the growing interest of the participants, since 2015 WISTP is a conference and WISTP2016 will include a highly selective single-track program for technical papers, accompanied by posters, videos, demonstrations, and several invited speakers from both academical and industrial research world.

Industry involvement plays an important role in the success of WISTP (see 2007, 2008, 2009, 2010, 2011, 2013, 2014 and 2015). With that in mind, we would like to invite you to become a major sponsor of the 10th WISTP International Conference on Information Security Theory and Practice (WISTP2016). We aim to provide good value for the support you offer and have outlined a list of sponsorship opportunities that may suit your requirements.
