Preliminary Call for Papers for the Sixth IEEE/IFIP International  
Symposium
on Trusted Computing and Communications (TrustCom-10)


-------------------------------------------------------------------------
Organizer: Trusted Computing Institute, Central South University, China
Venue & Dates: Hong Kong SAR, China, December 11-13, 2010
http://trust.csu.edu.cn/conference/trustcom2010
To be held in conjunction with The Eighth IEEE/IFIP International  
Conference
on Embedded and Ubiquitous Computing (EUC-10) http://www.euc2010.org/


Introduction

With the rapid development and the increasing complexity of computer and
communications systems and networks, traditional security technologies
and measures can not meet the demand for integrated and dynamic security
solutions. As a challenging and innovative research field, trusted  
computing
and communications target computer and communications systems and  
networks
that are available, secure, reliable, controllable, dependable, and so  
on.
In a word, they must be trustworthy. If we view the traditional  
security as
identity trust, the broader field of trusted computing and  
communications
also includes behavior trust of systems and networks. In fact, trusted
computing and communications have become essential components of various
distributed services, applications, and systems, including ad-hoc  
networks,
peer-to-peer networks, social networks, semantic webs, e-commence, e- 
government,
pervasive, ubiquitous, and cyber-physical systems.

The Sixth IEEE/IFIP International Symposium on Trusted Computing and  
Communications
(TrustCom-10) will be held in conjunction with "The Eighth IEEE/IFIP  
International
Conference on Embedded and Ubiquitous Computing (EUC-10)". It follows  
the success
of TrustCom-09 in Vancouver, Canada, TrustCom-08 in Zhangjiajie,  
China, SNDS-07
in Niagara Falls, Canada, SNDS-06 in Vienna, Austria, and SNDS-05 in  
Fukuoka, Japan.
It aims at bringing together researchers and practitioners in the  
world working on
trusted computing and communications, with regard to security, safety,  
privacy,
reliability, dependability, survivability, availability, and fault  
tolerance aspects
of computer systems and networks, and providing a forum to present and  
discuss
emerging ideas and trends in this highly challenging research field.


Scope and Interests

TrustCom-10 is an international forum for presenting and discussing  
emerging ideas
and trends in trusted computing and communications in computer systems  
and networks
from both the research community as well as the industry. Topics of  
interest include,
but are not limited to:

(1) Trust semantics, metrics, and models
(2) Trust inference, computation, and combination
(3) Trusted computing platform
(4) Trusted network computing
(5) Trusted operating systems
(6) Trusted software
(7) Trusted database
(8) Trusted services and applications
(9) Trusted communications
(10) Trust in e-commerce and e-government
(11) Trust in mobile and wireless networks
(12) Reliable and fault-tolerant computer systems/networks
(13) Survivable computer systems/networks
(14) Cryptography and security protocols
(15) Authentication in computer systems/networks
(16) Access control in computer systems/networks
(17) Key management in computer systems/networks
(18) Anonymity and privacy in computer systems/networks
(19) Trust in emerging applications
(20) Miscellaneous trust issues


Submission and Publication Information

The accepted papers from this symposium will be published by IEEE  
Computer Society
in IEEE EUC-10 proceedings (indexed by EI Compendex and ISTP). Papers  
should be
written in English conforming to the IEEE standard conference  
format(8.5" x 11",
Two-Column). Papers should be submitted through the paper submission  
system at the
symposium website. Manuscripts should be submitted through the paper  
submission
system at the symposium website. Each paper is limited to 6 pages (or  
8 pages with
the over length charge). Distinguished papers, after further  
revisions, will be
published in a special issue of "Elsevier's Computer and  
Communications (COMCOM)",
to be indexed by both SCI and EI. The program committee will select  
one winner for
the Best Paper Award for this symposium. Submitting a paper to the  
symposium means
that, if the paper is accepted, at least one author should attend the  
symposium and
present the paper. For no-show authors, their papers will be removed  
from the digital
library after the symposium and their affiliations will be notified.
