Two great workshops at iTrust

1) Security and Trust Management (STM).

Papers by April 2nd.
The intersection of security and the real world has prompted research in trust management. This research should ideally translate into proposals of solutions to traditional security issues. But, more often than not, it’s all proposals and few solutions. That is why STM focuses on how trust management may practically solve security issues and, in so doing, how it may enable new applications (eg, reputation, recommendation, collaboration in P2P or mobile nets). The call covers a wide range of topics.

2) Combining Context with Trust, Security, and Privacy (CAT). Paper abstracts by March 28th.
A research field might claim to have entered mainstream status only after it has been accepted by established conferences. Context-awareness and trust management have had that honour, but they have had it separately. We know by now how to design context-aware systems and trust management systems, but how to integrate the two is still the province of unexplored territory. That is why CAT will feature intrepid researchers who will stop us from:

  • sitting down in utter apathy towards the issue of trust being context-dependent – if (context=category of trust), as “rock music” is in “I trust you for recommending rock music”.
  • passing over exciting percom applications – if (context=space of interaction) as “my company premises” is in “my PDA is trusted for accessing confidential documents only within my company premises”.

Last year, CAT was terrific – I still remember the informing talks by Maddy, Tyrone and Linda. This year, it is likely to be even better. That is because CAT is like Math – one does context plus trust, and then multiplies by many researchers to equal stimulating discussion ;-)
