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

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.
