For the 2009 edition, the scope will be extended to cover all research aspects of Public Key Services, Applications and Infrastructures. In particular, we want to encourage also submissions dealing with any innovative applications of public key cryptography. Submitted papers may present theory, applications or practical experiences on topics including, but not limited to: - Anonymity and privacy - Architecture and Modeling - Authentication - Authorization and Delegation - Case Studies - Certificates Status - Certification Policy and Practices - Credentials - Cross Certification - Directories - eCommerce/eGovernment - Evaluation - Fault-Tolerance and reliability - Federations - Group signatures - ID-based schemes - Identity Management and eID - Implementations - Interoperability - Key Management - Legal issues - Long-time archiving - Mobile PKI - Multi-signatures - Policies & Regulations - Privacy - Privilege Management - Protocols - Repositories - Risk/attacks - Standards - Timestamping - Trust management - Trusted Computing - Ubiquitous scenarios - Usage Control - Web services security * Instructions for paper submission The Workshop welcomes original papers from academic, government, and industry contributors dealing with the above or related issues. Papers which describe ongoing research or provide an excellent surveying work are welcome too. All submissions will be subjected to a thorough a blind review by at least three reviewers. The submission must be anonymous, with no author names, affiliations, acknowledgments, or obvious references. It should begin with a title, a short abstract, and a list of key words, and its introduction should summarize the contributions of the paper at a level appropriate for a non-specialist reader. Submissions not meeting these guidelines risk rejection without consideration of their merits. As for all previous EuroPKI events, it is planned that accepted papers are published by Springer in the Lecture Notes in Computer Science (LNCS) series. Therefore we require that submissions follow the LNCS guidelines (see http://www.springeronline.com/lncs) with a total page limit of 16 pages including references and appendices. Up to 6 pages of additional supporting information may be provided, but committee members will read this information at their discretion, so the paper should be intelligible and self-contained within the 16 page LNCS limit. Submissions must not substantially duplicate work that any of the authors has published elsewhere or has submitted in parallel to any other conference or workshop with formally published proceedings. Information about submissions may be shared with program chairs of other conferences for that purpose. Accepted submissions may not appear in any other conference or workshop with proceedings. Papers must be submitted electronically in PDF format. A detailed description of the electronic submission procedure will be available at http://www.iit.cnr.it/EUROPKI09 Submissions must conform to this procedure. Late submissions and non-electronic submissions will not be considered. Authors of accepted papers must guarantee that their paper will be presented at the conference. * Important dates Submission of papers: June 1, 2009 Notification to authors: July 15, 2009 Camera-ready copies: August 10, 2007 * General Chair Anna Vaccarelli, National Research Council, Italy * Programme Committee co-Chairs Fabio Martinelli, National Research Council, Italy Bart Preneel, Katholieke Universiteit Leuven, Belgium * Publicity co-Chairs Lejla Batina, Katholieke Universiteit Leuven, Belgium Svetla Nikova, Katholieke Universiteit Leuven and University of Twente * Programme Committee I.

Pisa is a small historical town, world-wide known for the "Torre pendente" (leaning tower), one of the monuments of "Campo dei Miracoli" (field of miracles). With its international Airport, with direct flights (often low cost) with several European cities (such as Paris, London, Amsterdam, Brussels, Munich, Madrid, etc.) and also a direct fly with New York (operated by Delta), Pisa represents the main entrance for visiting Tuscany, with its historical, cultural and natural beauties.
