HICSS conferences are devoted to advances in the information,
computer, and system sciences, and encompass developments in both
theory and practice. Papers may be theoretical, conceptual, tutorial
or descriptive in nature. Submissions undergo a double-blind peer
referee process and those selected for presentation will be published
in the Conference Proceedings.

Starting in HICSS 40, the Software Technology track has a cluster of
complementary mini-tracks in the area of computer security. The Highly
Trustworthy computing (HTC) mini-track focuses on both applied and
fundamental research to support the protection of high value
information, such that both the behavior of the system and the absence
of contrary behavior can be ensured to a high degree. The use of
formal methods, hardware-based security primitives, and rigorous
development processes are some of the significant components in
HTC. We are interested in papers describing new results in the
application, theory and foundations of highly trustworthy
computing. We invite papers that demonstrate results through
mathematical techniques as well as those that provide convincing
analysis and/or data regarding new concepts. The topics covered in
this category include, but are not limited to the support of highly
trustworthy computing through:

    * System development and verification techniques
    * System and network security architectures
    * Support for dynamic security policies
    * Relationship of dynamic security to multi-level security
    * Hardware-software co-design
    * System and network evaluation techniques
    * Formal models and other theoretical foundations
