    Call For Papers
    New Security Paradigms Workshop 2002
    An ACM/SIG sponsored workshop
    23 - 26 September 2002
    The Chamberlain Hotel, Hampton, Virginia, USA
    For ten years the New Security Paradigms Workshop (NSPW) has provided
    a productive and highly interactive forum for innovative new
    approaches to computer security. The workshop offers a constructive
    environment for experienced researchers and practitioners as well as
    newer participants in the field.  The result is a unique opportunity
    to exchange ideas. NSPW 2002 will take place September 23 - 26, 2001
    at the Chamberlain Hotel, Fort Monroe, Hampton, Virginia, about 2.5
    hours from Washington, DC.
    In order to preserve the small, focused nature of the workshop,
    participation is limited to authors of accepted papers and conference
    organizers. Because we expect new paradigms, we accept wide-ranging
    topics in information security. Any paper that presents a significant
    shift in thinking about difficult security issues or builds on a
    previous shift is welcomed.
    What makes a paper acceptable for NSPW? While we reject plenty of
    excellent papers that would do very well at other venues, our eclectic
    program committee particularly looks for new paradigms, innovative
    approaches to older problems, early thinking on new topics that are
    not necessarily fully polished, and controversial issues that might
    not make it into other conferences but deserve to have their try at
    shaking and breaking the mold. Conversely, a great paper that does not
    have a new paradigm, does not challenge the status quo, or does not
    critique an older paradigm will almost certainly get rejected.
    NSPW is highly interactive in nature. Authors are encouraged to
    present ideas that might be considered risky in some other forum. All
    participants are charged with providing feedback in a constructive
    manner. The resulting brainstorming environment has proven to be an
    excellent medium for furthering the development of these ideas. Many
    authors have mentioned that they received more useful feedback and
    ideas on their work during the presentation and discussion of it at
    NSPW than from any other conference. The proceedings, published after
    the workshop, have consistently benefited from the inclusion of
    workshop feedback.
    To participate, please submit your paper, justification, and
    attendance statement, preferably via e-mail, to both Program Chairs --
    Carla Marceau carlaat_private and Simon Foley s.foleyat_private --
    by Friday, April 5, 2002 (hardcopy submissions must be received by
    March 28, 2002). Further details on the required format of submissions
    1 - Your Paper
    You should submit either a research paper, a 5 - 10 page position
    paper, or a discussion topic proposal. Submissions of any type must
    not have been published elsewhere. Discussion topic proposals should
    include an in-depth description of the topic to be discussed, a
    convincing argument that the topic will lead to a lively discussion,
    and any other supporting materials.
    Softcopy submissions should be in Postscript, PDF, Word/RTF or ASCII
    format. Papers may be submitted as hardcopy. To submit hardcopy,
    please mail 5 (five) copies to Program Co-chair Carla Marceau. Please
    allow adequate time for delivery.
    2 - Justification
    You should describe, in one page or less, why your paper is
    appropriate for the New Security Paradigms Workshop. A good
    justification will describe the new paradigm being proposed, explain
    how it is a departure from existing theory or practice, and identify
    those aspects of the status quo it challenges or rejects.
    3 - Attendance Statement
    You should state how many authors wish to attend the workshop.
    Accepted papers require the attendance of at least one author. In
    order to ensure that all papers receive equally strong feedback, all
    attendees are expected to stay for the entire duration of the
    The program committee will referee the papers and notify the authors
    of acceptance status by June 14, 2002. We expect to be able to offer a
    limited amount of financial aid to those who require it. More
    information will be provided on our web site <http://www.nspw.org> as
    it becomes available.
