Call for Contributions 9th ACM SYMPOSIUM ON ACCESS CONTROL MODELS AND TECHNOLOGIES (SACMAT '04) Dates: June 2-4, 2004 Place: IBM Thomas J Watson http://www.watson.ibm.com/general_info_ykt.html Research Center, Yorktown Heights, NY, USA Symposium web page: http://www.sacmat.org Collocated with Policy Workshop http://www.research.ibm.com/policy2004/ (June 7-9, 2004) PURPOSE The missions of the symposium are to share novel access control solutions that fulfill the needs of heterogeneous applications and environments and to identify new directions for future research and development. SACMAT gives researchers and practitioners a unique opportunity to share their perspectives with others interested in the various aspects of access control. SCOPE * Access control requirements * Access control within the context of emerging standards * Access control models and extensions * Access control for innovative applications * Methodologies and tools for access control policy design * Administration of access policies * Authorization management * Access control mechanisms, systems and tools * Access control in distributed and mobile systems * Safety analysis and enforcement * Theoretical foundations for access control models NEW Industry reports are a unique opportunity for the practitioners to provide feedback on the state of the practice in access control models, architectures, technologies, and systems to the research community. SACMAT steering committee invites practicing researchers, security consultants, security officers and architects, security managers, and end user representative to share their experience on implementing and using access control solutions in real world with the researchers in the field.
