The main goal of this conference is to promote research on all aspects of network security, as well as to build a bridge between research on cryptography and network security. We therefore welcome scientific and academic papers that focus on this multidisciplinary area. Previous CANS have been held in Taipei (2001), San Francisco (2002), Miami (2003), Xiamen (2005), Suzhou (2006), and Singapore (2007).

This conference is to be held in conjunction with "Showcase for Tomorrow's Information and Security Technologies" Exhibition. CANS 2008 participants can also visit the "Showcase for Tomorrow's Information and Security Technologies" Exhibition just next to the conference venue, to know about local security market information in Hong Kong.
