Call for Participation for VETO 2009

3rd workshop on Security and Electronic Voting

on June 28, 2009 in Grenoble, France
Co-located with CAV 2009


----- Aims and Scope -----

Concerns about computer security are constantly increasing with the
appearance of new information technology applications. One major new
application that has a strong impact on the society is
e-voting. E-voting is supposed to speed-up votes talling, broaden
partipation and decrease fraud threat. However, the design of correct
e-voting systems turns to be very hard. Indeed, some wanted properties
seem to be difficult to reconciliate such as verifiability of votes
and anonymity of voters. Cryptographic constructions and systems
should offer solutions. Foundational work to rigorously define
e-voting properties, attack models and languages for describing the
solutions is still emerging. The situation for verification methods
and tools for these systems is even more preliminary. The aim of this
workshop is to advance state of the art by gathering together
researchers to discuss and exchange ideas and results and identify key
problems and challenges. This year's workshop is organized as a
satellite event of CAV.
