Forwarded from: Abe Singer <abeat_private> This is a reminder that the deadline for NSPW submissions is Friday, April 5th. ---------- Call For Papers New Security Paradigms Workshop 2002 An ACM/SIG sponsored workshop 23 - 26 September 2002 Founders' Inn, Virginia Beach, Virginia, USA http://www.nspw.org 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 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 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.
