Building on the success of ACM Conference on Computer and Communications Security (CCS) and ACM Transactions on Information and System Security (TISSEC), the ACM Special Interest Group on Security, Audit, and Control (SIGSAC) formally established the annual ACM Symposium on InformAtion, Computer and Communications Security (ASIACCS). The inaugural ASIACCS was held in Taipei (2006). Since then ASIACCS has been held in Singapore (2007), Tokyo (2008), Sydney (2009), Beijing (2010), Hong Kong (2011), Seoul (2012), and Hangzhou (2013).
ASIACCS 2014 is the ninth conference of the series, and will be held in Kyoto, Japan, a city renowned for its historic relics and natural beauty. Kyoto was (and some say still is a) capital of Japan for over a millennium, and contains many sites of cultural significance, including some of the most famous temples and shrines in Japan as well as imperial palaces and gardens. In addition, Kyoto is home to Nintendo among many other computer companies.
