The 2010 International Symposium on Collaborative Technologies and Systems
				  (CTS 2010)

			       CALL FOR PAPERS 

	      Workshop on Collaboration and Security (COLSEC'10)

The Westin Lombard Yorktown Center Chicago, Illinois, USA May 17-21, 2010 In
		Cooperation with ACM, IEEE, and IFIP (Pending)

		    Submission Deadline: January 15, 2010

Brief Description: 

Dynamic, on-demand, whole life-cycle, multi-domain, coalition, fusion between
security technologies and models.

Collaboration relies on distributed systems that combine different resources, often provisioned on-demand for the duration of the mission or project. Security services are an important component of the collaboration infrastructure that ensures normal uninterruptible reliable operation of the collaborative systems. The open Internet and networking environment, over which the modern collaborative systems operate, impose a number of common and specific security threats and attacks (spamming, worms, session hijacking, buffer overflow, denial of service, social engineering, etc.). Collaborative organizations require better security properties (strong authentication, efficient encryption, Mandatory Access Control, integrity, non-repudiation and availability). Nowadays, collaborative organizations use new technologies such as mobile devices, smartcards, wireless networks, high performance networks, cloud and grid computing, multi-agent systems. These environments introduce new needs, requirements and difficulties related to security. Hence, collaborative organizations and technologies face several challenges in the field of security.  

This Workshop on Security and Collaboration, to be held as part of the 2010 International Symposium on Collaborative Technologies and Systems (CTS'10), will focus on security issues related to collaborative systems with emphasis on distributed environments, Grid and cloud based resource virtualisation and on-demand provisioning, multi-agent systems, mobile and wireless cooperation.  The aim is to have a dedicated workshop that fosters closer interactions among researchers and users communities, providing an excellent opportunity for them to meet and discuss their ideas. The workshop will address issues related to the security infrastructure and services design, implementation and operation.  It intends to address new security challenges and present new ideas and solutions addressing modern security requirements, specific methods of access control that should allow large scale cooperation, use of mobile technologies and smartcards, enable intrusion detection, system recovery and healing in the context of cooperative systems.  

We invite original contributions from researchers in academia, research institutions and industry on these emerging and important areas of information technology.  

Workshop topics must address security and collaboration:
*  Frameworks for Security in Collaborative Systems
*  Security of Grid and Cluster Architectures Supporting Cooperative Applications
*  Security models for emerging Cloud Computing
* High performance optical networking infrastructure for collaboration 
*  Access Control in Collaborative Environments
*  Role Based Access Control, Reputation, and Trust
*  Cross Domain Identity and User Attributes Management Systems 
*  Security Context Management in Scientific Workflow Applications 
*  Security models and infrastructure for Complex Resource Provisioning in Distributed Collaborative Systems, supporting the whole life-cycle of the provisioned resources
*  Security model for Coalition Networks combining on-demand provisioned multilayer infrastructure for communications, Information exchange and human interaction
*  Security standards and security education
*  Relation between Infrastructure security, information security and security management
*  Policy driven SLA negotiation
*  Privacy Protection for Collaborative Systems
*  Encryption and Cryptography Systems Supporting Cooperative Systems, including group oriented and Identity Based Cryptography
*  Security for Specific Collaboration Domains (e.g., e-Government, e-Business, Public   Services, P2P, e-Social Security, Medical Collaboration, etc.)
*  Virtual Organisations and dynamic security associations 
*  Trust and reputation management in dynamic environment
*  Web Services Security
*  Security in multi agent systems
*  Secure collaborative agents
*  Using multi agent systems for security
*  Middleware Security
*  Use of Smartcards in the Context of Collaboration 
*  Security in Mobile and Wireless Networks 
*  Usability and security
*  Trusted Operating Systems for Distributed Environments
*  Honeypots for Collaborative Systems 
*  Intrusion and Attacks Detection for Collaborative Systems
*  Collaborative Security Monitoring Schemes and Systems
*  Disclosure and Integrity Issues
*  Resistance to Denial of Service
*  Detection and Self-Recovery Schemes and Strategies Supporting Cooperation

Submission Instructions:

Papers reporting original and unpublished research results on above and any other related topics are solicited.  Submission should include a cover page with authors' names, affiliations, addresses, fax and phone numbers, and email addresses.  Please indicate clearly the corresponding author.  Include up to 6 keywords from the above list and an abstract of no more than 300 words. Please submit a PDF copy of your full manuscript not to exceed 8 pages in length in single-space, two columns IEEE format Conference style.  If accepted the final camera ready version will be following the CTS 2010 template and requirements to be posted on the CTS web site.  Electronic submissions will be accepted only in PDF format uploaded at   For other electronic formats, please check with the organizers.  

Consistent with standard practice, each submitted paper will receive a minimum of three reviews.  Papers will be selected based on their originality, timeliness, significance, relevance, and clarity of presentation.  Initial selection will be based on full papers.  Submission implies the willingness of at least one of the authors to register and present the paper, if accepted. All accepted papers in the Workshop are required to be presented and will be included in the Symposium proceedings.  It is our intent to have the proceedings formally published in hard and soft copies and be available at the time of the conference.  Instructions for final manuscript format and requirements will be posted on the web site later.  

Further instructions will be provided at
