ACM DRM Workshop
October 27, 2008
Co-located with ACM CCS 2008
Alexandria, VA, USA

Call for Papers

The ACM Workshop on Digital Rights Management is an international
forum that serves as an interdisplinary bridge between areas that can
be applied to solving the problem of Intellectual Property protection
of digital content. These include: cryptography, software and computer
systems design, trusted computing, information and signal processing,
intellectual property law, policy-making, as well as business analysis
and economics. Its purpose is to bring together researchers from the
above fields for a full day of formal talks and informal discussions,
covering new results that will spur new investigations regarding the
foundations and practices of DRM.

This year's workshop, the eighth in the series, continues this
tradition. As in the previous editions, it is sponsored by ACM SIGSAC
and is held in conjunction with the ACM Conference in Computer and
Communications Security (CCS).  Instructions for authors

Submissions must not overlap with papers that have been published or
that are simultaneously submitted to a journal or a conference with
proceedings. Submissions should be at most 15 pages excluding the
bibliography and well-marked appendices, using at least 11-point font
and reasonable margins. Committee members are not required to read the
appendices, and thus submissions should be intelligible without
them. Each submission should start with the title, abstract, and names
and contact information of authors. All submissions will be handled
electronically.  Proceedings

Accepted papers will be published in an archival proceedings volume by
ACM Press and will be distributed at the time of the workshop.
