NSPW 2010: Final Call For Papers and Participation

*Extended deadline to April 25, 2010*

Colonial Inn, Concord, MA, USA
September 21-23, 2010

The New Security Paradigms Workshop (NSPW) is seeking papers that
address the current limitations of information security. Today's
security risks are diverse and plentiful -- botnets, database breaches,
phishing attacks, distributed denial-of-service attacks -- and yet
present tools for combating them are insufficient. To address these
limitations, NSPW welcomes unconventional, promising approaches to
important security problems and innovative critiques of current security
theory and practice.

We are particularly interested in perspectives from outside computer
security, both from other areas of computer science (such as operating
systems, human-computer interaction, databases, programming languages,
algorithms) and other sciences that study adversarial relationships such
as biology and economics. We discourage papers that offer incremental
improvements to security and mature work that is appropriate for
standard information security venues.

To facilitate research interactions, NSPW features informal paper
presentations, extended discussions in small and large groups, shared
activities, and group meals, all in attractive surroundings. By
encouraging researchers to think "outside the box" and giving them an
opportunity to communicate with open-minded peers, NSPW seeks to foster
paradigm shifts in the field of information security.

NSPW welcomes three categories of submissions:

     * Research papers,
     * Position papers (10 pages maximum), and
     * Discussion panel proposals.

Submissions should include a cover page with justification and
attendance statements. A justification statement specifies the category
of your submission, briefly describes why your submission is appropriate
for NSPW and highlights the new paradigm proposed. An attendance
statement specifies which of the authors wish to attend the workshop.
One author of each accepted paper must attend NSPW; other authors may
attend on a space-available basis. All submissions are treated as
confidential, both as a matter of policy and in accordance with the U.S.
Copyright Act of 1976.

NSPW does not accept papers that have been published elsewhere, nor
papers that have been submitted to other conferences concurrently.
Submissions accompanied by nondisclosure agreement forms will not be
considered. Authors uncertain whether their submission meets the NSPW
guidelines should contact the program chairs.

All accepted papers are shepherded to help authors incorporate feedback
provided throughout the process. In order to ensure that all papers
receive equally strong feedback, all attendees are expected to stay for
the entire duration of the workshop. Final proceedings are published by
the ACM after the workshop.

We expect to offer a limited amount of financial aid to those who
absolutely require it.
