Workshop Call for Papers

W2SP 2009: Web 2.0 Security and Privacy 2009

Thursday, May 21

The Claremont Resort, Oakland, California 

Previous W2SP Workshops: 2008, 2007

The goal of this one day workshop is to bring together researchers and 

practitioners from academia and industry to focus on understanding Web 2.0 

security and privacy issues, and establishing new collaborations in these 


Web 2.0 is about connecting people and amplifying the power of working 

together. Enabled by a wave of new technology, these social and business 

interactions rely on composition of content and services from multiple 

sources, commonly called mash-ups, leading to systems with complex trust 

boundaries. This trend is likely to continue because individuals and 

businesses desire the efficiency and simplicity these technologies offer. 

Together with their virtues, these technologies raise issues about 

management of identities, reputation, privacy, anonymity, transient and 

long term relationships, and composition of function and content, both on 

the server and on the client (web browser). Although the underlying 

security and privacy issues are not new, the use of these technologies on 

a wide scale and by a broad audience raises new questions. This workshop 

is intended to discuss the limitations of current technologies and explore 


The scope of W2SP 2009 includes, but is not limited to:

Trustworthy cloud-based services

Privacy and reputation in social networks

Usable security and privacy

Security for the mobile web

Identity management and psuedonymity

Advertisement and affiliate fraud

Provenance and governance

Security and privacy as a service

Web services/feeds/mashups

Security and privacy policies for composible content

Next-generation browser technology

Potential workshop participants should submit a paper on topics relevant 

to Web 2.0 security and privacy issues. We are seeking both short position 

papers (2–4 pages) and refereed papers (a maximum of 8 pages). Papers 

longer than 8 pages may be automatically rejected by the chair or workshop 

committee. From the submissions, the program committee will strive to 

balance participation between academia and industry and across topics. 

Selected papers will appear on the workshop web site.
