    The 20th ACM Symposium on Applied Computing
    March 13 - 17, 2005, Santa Fe, New Mexico, USA
    Track: Trust, Recommendations, Evidence and other Collaboration Know-how
    SAC 2005:
    For the past nineteen years, the ACM Symposium on Applied Computing has
    been a primary gathering forum for applied computer scientists, computer
    engineers, software engineers, and application developers from around
    the world. 
    SAC 2005 is sponsored by the ACM Special Interest Group on Applied
    Computing, and is hosted by New Mexico Institute of Mining and
    Technology, Socorro, NM, USA. Its proceedings are published by ACM in
    both printed form and CD-ROM; they are also available on the Web through
    the ACM Digital Library. More information about SIGAPP and past editions
    of SAC can be found at http://www.acm.org/sigapp/ and
    Aims and scope of the TRECK track:
    Computational models of trust and mechanisms based on the human notion
    of trust have been gaining momentum over the last couple of years. One
    reason for this is that traditional security mechanisms are challenged
    by open, large scale and decentralised environments. The use of an
    explicit trust management component goes beyond security though. Trust
    has been used in reputation systems, collaborative filtering, dynamic
    coalitions and virtual organizations. For example, adjunct trust metrics
    in recommender systems have solved some of the shortcomings of standard
    distributed recommender systems.
    The goal of the SAC 2005 TRECK track is to explore the set of
    applications that either benefit from the use of early trust-based
    mechanisms or could be enhanced by the integration of an advanced trust
    The topics of interest include, but are not limited to:
    Trust/risk-based security frameworks
    Applications of trust management components
    Improvement of recommender systems with adjunct trust/reputation 
    Trust-enhanced collaborative applications 
    Tangible guarantees given by formal models of trust and risk
    Applications of formal models of trust and risk
    Assessment and threat analysis of trust metrics
    Pervasive computational trust and use of context-aware features
    Trade-off between privacy and trust
    Automated collaboration and trust negotiation 
    Integration of soft computing techniques in trust engines
    Evidence gathering and management
    Real world applications, running prototypes and advanced simulations
    Applicability in large scale, open and decentralized environments
    Representation, management and recognition of identities
    Trust and reputation in virtual organizations
    Legal and economic aspects related to the use of trust-based systems
    User-studies of computational trust applications
    Submission guidelines are posted on the TRECK 2005 website
    (http://www.trustcomp.org/treck/), which always contains the latest
    Authors are invited to submit full papers about original and unpublished
    research. We would like to encourage the submission of industrial
    experience reports and reports of innovative computing applications.
    Parallel submission to other conferences, other tracks of SAC 2005 or
    any other publications is forbidden. Papers submitted should not have
    been previously published and should not be subsequently published in
    the same form elsewhere. 
    Submissions should be properly anonymized to facilitate blind reviewing:
    papers being submitted should not list the authors, affiliations or
    addresses on the first page and authors are also encouraged to take care
    throughout the entire document to minimise references that may reveal
    the identity of the authors or institution. The body of each paper
    should not exceed 4,000 words. Papers failing to comply with length
    limitations risk immediate rejection. Authors of accepted papers must be
    prepared to sign a copyright statement and must guarantee that their
    paper will be presented at the conference.
    At least three reviewers will be assigned to each submission to the
    TRECK track. Accepted papers are published by ACM in both printed form
    and CD-ROM; they are also available on the Web through the ACM Digital
    Library. Once accepted, papers must fit within five (5) two column pages
    (please check the author kit on the main SAC website: the format is
    usually the ACM one at
    http://www.acm.org/sigs/pubs/proceed/template.html), with the option (at
    additional expense) to add three (3) more pages. A second set of
    selected papers, which did not get accepted as full papers, will be
    accepted as posters and will be published as extended 2-page abstracts
    in the symposium proceedings.
    Paper submissions should be sent (as an attached PDF file) to:
    The body of the email should include the title of the paper, the
    author(s) name(s) and affiliation(s), and the address (including e-mail,
    telephone, and fax) to which correspondence should be sent. 
    Submissions will be accepted until 23.59 PM GMT, 3 September, 2004. No
    more papers will be accepted after that time.

    March 13-17, 2005: SAC in Santa Fe
    Conference Venue:
    Nestled at 7000 feet (2000 m) in the foothills of Rocky Mountains, Santa
    Fe, New Mexico, the "City Different", is the oldest capital city in the
    United States, the city that has a long history and rich cultural
    heritage. Originally a townlet populated by Pueblo Indians, it became a
    capital of Nueva Espana (New Spain) in 1607, then a capital of the
    Mexican state of Nuevo Mexico (New Mexico); since the 1840's, it is part
    of the USA. 
    Santa Fe is famous for its culture, art, and traditions. It is home to
    US's third largest art market, to the Santa Fe Opera, variety of
    cuisines, hundreds of quaint shops, and unlimited outdoor activities.
    For more information about Santa Fe see the city website at
