                Published by Springer-LNEE (EI and SCOPUS Index)
==Overview ==
Future Generation Communication environments (FGC) are advanced communication and networking environments where all applications and services are focused on users. In addition, the FGC has emerged rapidl! y an exciting new paradigm to provide reliable and comfortable life se rvices. Furthermore, the benefits of FGC will only be realized if security issues can be appropriately addressed. Specially, forensics for FGC is very important in the security fields. This workshop is intended to foster state-of-the-art research Digital Forensics and Information Security in the area of FGC including information and communication technologies, law, social sciences and business administration.
The DFIS-12 is the next event in a series of highly successful the 5th International Workshop on Forensics for Future Generation Communication environments: F2GC-11 (Loutraki, Greece), F2GC-10 (Cebu, Philippines), F2GC-09 (Jeju , Korea), F2GC-08 (Sanya, China), F2GC-09 (Jeju , Korea).
Papers presented in the DCIS-12 will be published by Springer Lecture Notes in Electrical Engineering (Indexed by EI & SCOPUS), ISSN: 1876-1100.
