    Call for Papers
    New Security Paradigms Workshop 2003
    An ACSA-sponsored workshop
    18 - 21 August 2003
    Centro Stefano Francini, Ascona, Switzerland (http://www.csf-mv.ethz.ch/)
    For eleven years the New Security Paradigms Workshop (NSPW) has
    provided a stimulating and highly interactive forum for innovative
    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 2003 will take place August 18 - 21 at the
    Centro Stefano Francini (CSF), the conference center of the Swiss
    Federal Technical Institute.  The CSF is located in scenic Ascona,
    Switzerland, on Lago Maggiore, a few hours by train from Zurich,
    Geneva, or Milan.
    In order to preserve the small, focused nature of the workshop,
    participation is limited to authors of accepted papers and conference
    organizers. 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. The proceedings, which are published after the workshop,
    have consistently benefited from the inclusion of workshop feedback.
    Because we expect new paradigms, we accept wide-ranging topics in
    information security. Papers that present a significant shift in
    thinking about difficult security issues or builds on a previous shift
    are welcomed.  Our program committee particularly looks for new
    paradigms, innovative approaches to older problems, early thinking on
    new topics, and controversial issues that might not make it into other
    conferences but deserve to have their try at shaking and breaking the
    To participate, please submit your paper, justification, and
    attendance statement in PDF format to
    http://www.nspw.org/submission.shtml by Friday, April 4, 2003.
    If you have questions or problems with your submission, please e-mail
    the Program Chairs -Simon Foley s.foleyat_private and R. Sekar
    1 - Your Paper
    We welcome three categories of submission: research papers, 5 - 10
    page position papers, and discussion topic proposals.  Please indicate
    the category of your submission. No submission may 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 supporting materials.
    Submissions should be in PDF format. 
    2 - Justification
    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 departs from existing
    theory or practice, and identify those aspects of the status quo it
    challenges or rejects.
    3 - Attendance Statement
    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.  Attendance is
    limited.  We cannot guarantee attendance for more than one author.
    The program committee will notify authors of acceptance status by June
    10, 2003. We expect 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.
