With the increasing drive towards availability of data and services anytime anywhere, privacy risks have significantly increased. Unauthorized disclosure, modification, usage, or uncontrolled access to privacy-sensitive data may result in high human and financial costs. In the distributed computing environments, trust plays a crucial role in mitigating the privacy risk by guaranteeing meaningful interactions, data sharing, and communications. Trust management is a key enabling technology for security and privacy enhancement. While privacy preservation and trust management are already challenging problems, it is imperative to explore how privacy-oriented and trust-oriented approaches can integrate to bring new solutions in safeguarding information sharing and protecting critical cyber infrastructure. Furthermore, there are questions about whether existing trust models and privacy preserving schemes are robust against attacks. This Call for Papers invites researchers to contribute original articles that cover a broad range of topics related to privacy preservation and trust management in cloud and distributed systems, with a focus on emerging networking contexts such as social media, cloud computing, and power grid systems.

 

Example topics include but are not limited to

  • Privacy Enhanced Technology: privacy preserving data mining, publishing, and disclosure; access control, anonymity, audit, and authentication; applied cryptography, cryptanalysis, and digital signatures in PET; abuse cases and threat modeling; theoretical models and formal methods; application of physical security for privacy enhancement.
  • Trust and Reputation Management: trust management architectures and trust models; quantitative metrics and computation; security of trust management protocols/systems; evaluation and test bed; trust related privacy enhancement solutions.
  • Privacy and Trust in Emerging Complex Systems including: social networking; cloud computing; power grid systems; sensor networks; Internet of Things; multimedia surveillance networks.
  • Other Related Topics such as trust and privacy policies; human factors and usability; censorship; economics of trust and privacy; behavior modeling.

Submission Procedure: Manuscripts are to be submitted according to the Information for Authors at http://www.signalprocessingsociety.org/publications/periodicals/forensics/forensics-authors-info/ using the IEEE online manuscript system, Manuscript Central.

SUBMISSION OF PAPERS:

Prospective authors are invited to submit their papers by uploading them
to the evaluation web site at:
https://www.easychair.org/conferences/?conf=sam12
Submissions must be uploaded by March 27, 2012 and they must be in
either MS doc or pdf formats (about 7 pages including all figures,
tables, and references – single space, font size of 10 to 12). All
reasonable typesetting formats are acceptable (later, the authors of
accepted papers will be asked to follow a particular typesetting format
to prepare their final papers for publication.) Papers must not have
been previously published or currently submitted for publication
elsewhere. The first page of the paper should include: title of the
paper, name, affiliation, postal address, and email address for each
author. The first page should also identify the name of the Contact Author
and a maximum of 5 topical keywords that would best represent the content
of the paper. The name of the conference (ie, SAM) that the paper is
being submitted for consideration must be stated on the first page of the
paper as well as a 100 to 150-word abstract. The length of the final
Camera-Ready papers (if accepted) will be limited to 7 (two-column IEEE
style) pages.

Each paper will be peer-reviewed by two experts in the field for originality,
significance, clarity, impact, and soundness. In cases of contradictory
recommendations, a member of the conference program committee will be
charged to make the final decision (accept/reject); often, this would involve
seeking help from additional referees by using a double-blinded review
process. In addition, all papers whose authors include a member of the
conference program committee will be evaluated using the double-blinded
review process. (Essay/philosophical papers will not be refereed but may be
considered for discussion/panels).

Authors whose papers are accepted will be instructed to upload their papers
to a particular web site for publication – the uploaded papers to the
publication web site will only be checked for correct typesetting. At this
point, authors will be required to attest to the originality of their work
(ie, declaring that no part of the work is plagiarized and the paper does not
suffer from any acts of plagiarism.)

Proceedings of SAM will be published in printed conference books (ISBN)
and will also be made available online. The proceedings will be indexed in
science citation databases that track citation frequency/data for each
published paper (science citation databases such as: Inspec / IET / The
Institute for Engineering & Technology; The French National Center for
Scientific Research, CNRS, INIST databases, PASCAL (covers the core scientific
literature in Science; about 90% of inclusions are journals; only about 9%
are proceedings; worldcomp tracks are selected to be among the 9% – accessable
from INIST, Datastar, Dialog, EBSCO, OVID, Questel.Orbit, Qwam, and STN
International); and others. Though, there is no guarantee that the proceedings
will also be included in EI Compendex/Elsevier indexings, in the past, the
proceedings of SAM was included in these databases. Therefore, we will also
be sending the proceedings for indexing procedures to EI Compendex/Elsevier.
The printed proceedings/books will be available for distribution on site at
the conference.

In addition to the publication of the proceedings, selected authors will be
invited to submit extended versions of their papers for publication in a
number of research books contracted with various publishers – these books will
be composed after the conference. Also, many chairs of tracks will be forming
journal special issues to be published after the conference.

SUBMISSION OF POSTER PAPERS:

Poster papers can be 2 pages long. Authors are to follow the same instructions
that appear above (see, SUBMISSION OF REGULAR PAPERS) except for the submission
is limited to 2 pages. On the first page, the author should state that “This
paper is being submitted as a poster”. Poster papers (if accepted) will be
published if and only the author of the accepted paper wishes to do so.

IMPORTANT DATES:

March 27, 2012:    Submission of full papers (about 7 pages)
April 26, 2012:    Notification of acceptance (+/- 2 days)
May 12, 2012:      Final papers + Copyright/Consent + Registration

have included: Prof. David A. Patterson (pioneer, architecture, U. of
California, Berkeley), Dr. K. Eric Drexler (known as Father of
Nanotechnology), Prof. John H. Holland (known as Father of Genetic
Algorithms; U. of Michigan), Prof. Ian Foster (known as Father of Grid
Computing; U. of Chicago & ANL), Prof. Ruzena Bajcsy (pioneer, VR, U.
of California, Berkeley), Prof. Barry Vercoe (Founding member of MIT
Media Lab, MIT), Dr. Jim Gettys (known as X-man, developer of X Window
System, xhost; OLPC), Prof. John Koza (known as Father of Genetic
Programming, Stanford U.), Prof. Brian D. Athey (NIH Program Director,
U. of Michigan), Prof. Viktor K. Prasanna (pioneer, U. of Southern
California), Dr. Jose L. Munoz (NSF Program Director and Consultant),
Prof. Jun Liu (pioneer, Broad Institute of MIT & Harvard U.),
Prof. Lotfi A. Zadeh (Father of Fuzzy Logic), Dr. Firouz Naderi (Head,
NASA Mars Exploration Program/2000-2005 and Associate Director, Project
Formulation & Strategy, Jet Propulsion Lab, CalTech/NASA; Director,
NASA’s JPL Solar System Exploration), Prof. David Lorge Parnas (Fellow

about the conferences’ atmosphere, see the 2011 delegates photos
available at: http://worldcomp.phanfare.com/5408606

An important mission of the congress is “Providing a unique platform for
a diverse community of constituents composed of scholars, researchers,
developers, educators, and practitioners. The Congress makes concerted
effort to reach out to participants affiliated with diverse entities
(such as: universities, institutions, corporations, government agencies,
and research centers/labs) from all over the world. The congress also
attempts to connect participants from institutions that have teaching as
their main mission with those who are affiliated with institutions that
have research as their main mission. The congress uses a quota system to
achieve its institution and geography diversity objectives.”

One main goal of the congress is to assemble a spectrum of affiliated
research conferences, workshops, and symposiums into a coordinated
research meeting held in a common place at a common time. This model
facilitates communication among researchers in different fields of
computer science, computer engineering, and applied computing. The
Congress also encourages multi-disciplinary and inter-disciplinary
research initiatives; ie, facilitating increased opportunities for
cross-fertilization across sub-disciplines. 70148

An important mission of WORLDCOMP is “Providing a unique platform for
a diverse community of constituents composed of scholars, researchers,
developers, educators, and practitioners. The Congress makes concerted
effort to reach out to participants affiliated with diverse entities
(such as: universities, institutions, corporations, government agencies,
and research centers/labs) from all over the world. The congress also
attempts to connect participants from institutions that have teaching as
their main mission with those who are affiliated with institutions that
have research as their main mission. The congress uses a quota system to
achieve its institution and geography diversity objectives.”

One main goal of the congress is to assemble a spectrum of affiliated
research conferences, workshops, and symposiums into a coordinated
research meeting held in a common place at a common time. This model
facilitates communication among researchers in different fields of
computer science, computer engineering, and applied computing. The
Congress also encourages multi-disciplinary and inter-disciplinary
research initiatives; ie, facilitating increased opportunities for
cross-fertilization across sub-disciplines.  70148

SUBMISSION OF PAPERS:

Prospective authors are invited to submit their papers by uploading them
to the evaluation web site (EasyChair) at:
https://www.easychair.org/account/signin.cgi?conf=sam12

Submissions must be uploaded by March 12, 2012 and they must be in
either MS doc or pdf formats (about 7 pages including all figures,
tables, and references – single space, font size of 10 to 12). All
reasonable typesetting formats are acceptable (later, the authors of
accepted papers will be asked to follow a particular typesetting format
to prepare their final papers for publication.) Papers must not have
been previously published or currently submitted for publication
elsewhere. The first page of the paper should include: title of the
paper, name, affiliation, postal address, and email address for each
author. The first page should also identify the name of the Contact Author
and a maximum of 5 topical keywords that would best represent the content
of the paper. The name of the conference (ie, SAM) that the paper is
being submitted for consideration must be stated on the first page of the
paper as well as a 100 to 150-word abstract. The length of the final
Camera-Ready papers (if accepted) will be limited to 7 (two-column IEEE
style) pages.

Each paper will be peer-reviewed by two experts in the field for originality,
significance, clarity, impact, and soundness. In cases of contradictory
recommendations, a member of the conference program committee will be
charged to make the final decision (accept/reject); often, this would involve
seeking help from additional referees by using a double-blinded review
process. In addition, all papers whose authors include a member of the
conference program committee will be evaluated using the double-blinded
review process. (Essay/philosophical papers will not be refereed but may be
considered for discussion/panels). Proceedings of SAM will be published
in printed conference books (ISBN) and will also be made available online.
The proceedings will be indexed in science citation databases that track
citation frequency/data for each published paper (science citation databases
such as: Inspec / IET / The Institute for Engineering & Technology; The
French National Center for Scientific Research, CNRS, INIST databases, PASCAL
(covers the core scientific literature in Science; about 90% of inclusions
are journals; only about 9% are proceedings; worldcomp tracks are selected
to be among the 9% – accessable from INIST, Datastar, Dialog, EBSCO, OVID,
Questel.Orbit, Qwam, and STN International); and others. Though, there is
no guarantee that the proceedings will also be included in
EI Compendex/Elsevier indexings, in the past, SAM proceedings were included
in these databases. Therefore, we will also be sending the proceedings for
indexing procedures to EI Compendex/Elsevier. The printed proceedings/books
will be available for distribution on site at the conference.

In addition to the publication of the proceedings, selected authors will be
invited to submit extended versions of their papers for publication in a
number of research books contracted with various publishers (such as,
Springer, Elsevier, …) – these books will be composed after the conference.
Also, many chairs of tracks will be forming journal special issues to be
published after the conference.
