    Call For Papers
    New Security Paradigms Workshop 2002
    An ACM/SIG sponsored workshop
    23 - 26 September 2002
    Founders' Inn, Virginia Beach, 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, 2002 at the Founder's
    Inn, Virgina Beach, 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 follow.
    1 - Your Paper
    You should submit 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
    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 workshop.
    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.
