Third International Workshop on Trustworthy Ubiquitous Computing (TwUC  

November 24-26, 2008 Linz, Austria


The 3rd Workshop on Trustworthy Ubiquitous Computing (TwUC 2008) is  
held in
conjunction with IIWAS 2008, November 24-26, 2008, in Linz, Austria.

Ubiquitous applications are getting more and more to the market these  
days. In
spite of many applications and projects in the area of ubiquitous and  
computing the success of this technologies and the acceptance from the  
user is
still low resulting from missing trust into computing systems  
introduced into
our real world.

TwUC was established to provide a forum to  scientists, engineers and  
to address recent research results, to present and discuss their ideas,
theories, technologies, systems, tools, applications, work in progress  
experiences on all theoretical and practical issues and to elaborate  
about the
research areas of security, reliability and privacy which build the  
basis for
creating trustworthy interfaces and computing environments for people
interacting in ubiquitous environments.


The conference program will include invited talks, peer reviewed full  
around but not limited to the following topics:

-	Security in ubiquitous computing environments
	- security issues and technologies
	- usage policies
	- identity and access
	- threat and vulnerability
	- malicious software in ubiquitous environments
	- integrity
	- trusted computing
	- trusting platforms

-	Reliability in ubiquitous computing environments
	- software design
	- software quality and metrics
	- user perceived QoS
	- Methods and concepts to enhance and ensure availability

-	Privacy in ubiquitous computing environments
	- issues and appliances on privacy in ubiquitous computing environments
	- data and information ownership and souvereignity of social and  
	methods for ensuring confidentiality

-	Usability in ubiquitous computing environments
	- Designing the user interface in ubiquitous environments
	- Designing Interaction for ubiquitous appliances
	- Usability Evaluation Methods in ubiquitous environments
