The 7th ACM Workshop on Scalable Trusted Computing (ACM STC 2012)
(held in conjunction with the ACM CCS 2012)

Monday, Oct 15, 2012
Sheraton Raleigh Hotel, Raleigh, NC, USA

Built on the continuous success of ACM STC 2006-2011, this
workshop focuses on fundamental technologies of trusted and
high assurance computing and its applications in large-scale
systems with varying degrees of trust. The workshop is intended
to serve as a forum for researchers as well as practitioners to
disseminate and discuss recent advances and emerging issues.

The workshop solicits two types of original papers: full papers
and short/work-in-progress/position-papers. Submitted papers
must be in ACM double-column format with at most 12 pages (full
paper) and 6 pages (short paper), including bibliography,
appendix etc. Note that reviewers are not required to read the
appendix. A paper submitted to this workshop must not be in
parallel submission to any other journal, magazine, conference
or workshop with proceedings.

Topics of interests include but not limited to:

    * security policies and models of trusted computing
    * architecture and implementation technologies for trusted platform
    * limitations, alternatives and tradeoffs regarding trusted computing
    * trusted computing in cloud and data center
    * cloud-based attestation services
    * trusted smartphone devices and systems 
    * trust in smart grid, energy, and Internet of Things
    * trusted emerging and future Internet infrastructure
    * trusted online social network
    * trust in authentications, users and computing services
    * hardware based trusted computing
    * software based trusted computing
    * pros and cons of hardware based approach
    * remote attestation of trusted devices
    * censorship-freeness in trusted computing
    * cryptographic support in trusted computing
    * case study in trusted computing
    * principles for handling scales
    * scalable trust supports and services in cloud
    * trusted embedded computing and systems
    * virtualization and trusted computing
