A major initiative that I am sure will play a pivotal role in building the IFS community is the yearly organization of our flagship technical workshop on information forensics and security (WIFS). Any community building process, in fact, goes necessarily through person-to-person relationships whose establishment, in turns, requires that people meet on a regular basis. This is going to be one of the main goals of the WIFS workshop: letting people working in security technology meet together to exchange their views and experience. It will also be a unique opportunity to go beyond the signal processing borders and meet people with different backgrounds from which we all can be enriched and to whom we can bring our experience and knowledge.
I am sure that through the efforts of all of us, the IFS community will become a reality. For the time being I look forward to work with those of you that will apply for IFS affiliate membership and to meet you in person at the next WIFS workshop that will be held in Seattle from 12 to 15 December 2010.
