2009 IEEE/IFIP International Symposium on Trusted Computing and Communications
Vancouver, Canada, August 29-31, 2009

Call for Papers for the 2009 IEEE/IFIP International Symposium on Trusted Computing and Communications (TrustCom 2009)
Organizer: Trusted Computing Institute, Central South University, China
Vancouver, Canada, August 29-31, 2009

To be held in conjunction with The 2009 IEEE/IFIP International Conference on Embedded and Ubiquitous Computing (EUC-09)

With the rapid development and the increasing complexity of computer and communications systems and networks, traditional security technologies and measures can not meet the demand for integrated and dynamic security solutions. As a challenging and innovative research field, trusted computing and communications target computer and communications systems and networks that are available, secure, reliable, controllable, dependable, and so on. In a word, they must be trustworthy. If we view the traditional security as identity trust, the broader field of trusted computing and communications also includes behavior trust of systems and networks. In fact, trusted computing and communications have become essential components of various distributed services, applications, and systems, including self-organizing networks, social networks, semantic webs, e-commence, and e-government.

Following the success of TrustCom 2008 in Zhangjiajie, China during November 18-21, 2008, "The 2009 IEEE/IFIP International Symposium on Trusted Computing and Communications" (TrustCom 2009), to be held in conjunction with "The 2009 IEEE/IFIP International Conference on Embedded and Ubiquitous Computing" (EUC-09), aims at bringing together researchers and practitioners in the world working on trusted computing and communications with regard to security, safety, privacy, reliability, dependability, survivability, availability, and fault tolerance aspects of computer systems and networks, and providing a forum for them to present and discuss emerging ideas and trends in this highly challenging research field.

Scope and Interests
TrustCom 2009 is an international forum for presenting and discussing emerging ideas and trends in trusted computing and communications in computer systems and networks from both the research community as well as the industry. Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:

(1) Semantics, metrics and models of trust
(2) Trust establishment, propagation, and management
(3) Trusted computing platform
(4) Trusted network computing
(5) Trusted operating system
(6) Trusted software
(7) Trusted database
(8) Trusted services and applications
(9) Trust in e-commerce and e-government
(10) Trust in mobile and wireless networks
(11) Cryptography and security protocols
(12) Reliable and fault-tolerant computer systems/networks
(13) Survivable computer systems/networks
(14) Authentication in computer systems/networks
(15) Access control in computer systems/networks
(16) Key management in computer systems/networks
(17) Trust-related security and privacy
(18) Trusted communications

Submission and Publication Information
The symposium proceedings will be published by the IEEE Computer Society (will be indexed by EI Compendex & ISTP). Manuscripts should be written in English conforming to the IEEE standard conference format (8.5" x 11", Two-Column): http://www.computer.org/portal/pages/cscps/cps/cps_forms.html.

Manuscripts should be submitted through the paper submission system at the symposium website: http://trust.csu.edu.cn/conference/trustcom2009/submission. Each accepted paper is limited to 6 pages (or 8 pages with over length charge). Distinguished papers, after further revisions, will be published in a special issue of a refereed international journal to be indexed by SCI. The program committee will select one winner for the Best Paper Award for the symposium.

Submission of a paper
Should be regarded as a commitment such that, if accepted, at least one author of the paper will register and attend the symposium; otherwise, it will be removed from the IEEE Digital Library after the symposium.

FYI: Based on the papers published in TrustCom-2008 proceedings, we have successfully applied for a Special Issue in the Wiley’s Security and Communication Networks (SCN) Journal (http://www3.interscience.wiley.com/cgi-bin/fulltext/121382872/HTMLSTART).
In this year, based on our TrustCom-2009 papers, we plan to publish a Special Issue in an SCI-indexed international journal (pending). Hope to get your contributions in TrustCom-2009! Thank you very much for your contribution in advance!

Important Dates
(1) Paper submission due: May 22
(2) Notification of decision: June 15, 2009
(3) Camera-ready papers due: July 15, 2009
