First International Workshop on
        Advances in Policy Enforcement (APE'08)

           Collocated with the 3rd ARES 2008
           Barcelona, Catalonia, March 4-7 2008

The goal of this workshop is to bring together researchers and
practitioners working on innovative methods for security and privacy
policy enforcement and its a posteriori audit.  The focus of the
workshop is primarily technological, yet it encourages papers with a
multidisciplinary character, encompassing for instance economic, legal,
and sociological aspects, as well as papers more purely focused on
information technology.  Submission topics include, but are not limited to:

. A posteriori policy enforcement
. Complementing a priori and a posteriori approaches to enforcement
. Usage control
. Audit strategies
. Forensics and legal issues
. Provable enforcement
. Accountability and liability
. Secure logging mechanisms
. Expression of security and privacy requirements
. Monitoring techniques
. Implementation experiences
