The 7th ACM Workshop on Scalable Trusted Computing (ACM STC 2012)
(held in conjunction with the ACM CCS 2012)
http://www.cs.utsa.edu/~acmstc/stc2012/

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
