3rd International Workshop on Formal Aspects in Security & Trust (FAST2005)

Newcastle, UK, 18-19 July 2005.

FAST 2005 is affiliated with 13th Formal Methods Symposium (FM05: http://www.csr.ncl.ac.uk/fm05/) 
and under the auspices of IFIP WG 1.7 "Theoretical Foundations of Security Analysis and Design"

            -last call for papers -


The third international Workshop on Formal Aspects in Security and Trust (FAST2005) 
aims at continuing the successful efforts of the first two FAST workshops for 
fostering the cooperation among researchers in the areas of security and trust. 
The new challenges offered by the so-called ambient intelligence space as a future 
paradigm in the information society demand for a coherent framework of concepts, 
tools and methodologies to enable user's trust and confidence on the underlying 
computing infrastructure. These need to address issues relating to both guaranteeing 
security of the infrastructure and the perception of the infrastructure being secure. 
In addition, user confidence on what is happening must be enhanced by developing trust 
models effective but also easily comprehensible and manageable by users.

The complexity and scale of deployment of emerging ICT systems based 
on web service and grid computing concepts also necessitates the investigation
 of new, scalable and more flexible foundational models of enforcing pervasive 
security across organizational borders and in situations where there is high uncertainty
 about the identity and trustworthiness of the participating networked entities
 (including users, services and resources). The increasing need of building activities
 sharing different resources managed with different policies demands for new 
and business enabling models of trust between members of virtual communities 
including virtual organizations that span across the boundaries of physical 
enterprises and loosely structured communities of individuals.

Submission Instructions:
Papers presenting original contributions are sought. Two formats of submissions are possible:

1) short papers, up to 5 pages,
2) full papers, up to 14 pages.

Submissions should clearly state their category (1 or 2).
Accepted full papers will be published in the formal post-proceedings. 
Short papers will be published in the informal proceedings distributed 
at the workshop (together with the accepted full papers).
After the workshop, authors of  short papers  which are judged mature for publication 
will be invited to submit full papers. These will be reviewed according to the usual refereeing 
procedures, and accepted papers  will be published in the post-proceedings on LNCS 
(together with the accepted full papers).

Simultaneous submission of full papers to a journal or
conference/workshop with formal proceedings is not allowed.
