2009 ACM Cloud Computing Security Workshop (CCSW) at CCS
13 November 2009, Hyatt Regency Chicago

Notwithstanding the latest buzzword (grid, cloud, utility computing,
SaaS, etc.), large-scale computing and cloud-like infrastructures are
here to stay. How exactly they will look like tomorrow is still for
the markets to decide, yet one thing is certain: clouds bring with
them new untested deployment and associated adversarial models and
vulnerabilities. CCSW aims to bring together researchers and
practitioners in all security aspects of cloud-centric and outsourced
computing, including:

+ secure resource virtualization
+ secure data management outsourcing
+ practical privacy & integrity for outsourcing
+ foundations of cloud-centric threat models
+ secure computation outsourcing
+ remote attestation mechanisms
+ sandboxing and VM-based enforcements
+ trust and policy management in clouds
+ secure identity management mechanisms
+ web service security paradigms and mechanisms
+ cloud-centric regulatory compliance
+ business & security risk models and clouds
+ cost & usability models and their interaction with security in clouds
+ scalability of security in global-size clouds
+ trusted computing technology and clouds
+ binary analysis of software for remote attestation and cloud protection
+ network security mechanisms for clouds
+ emerging cloud programming models security
+ energy/costs/efficiency of security in clouds

We would like to especially encourage novel paradigms and
controversial ideas that are not on the above list. The workshop is
to act as a fertile ground for creative debate and interaction in
security-sensitive areas of computing impacted by clouds.

CCSW is soliciting full papers of up to 12 pages and short papers of
up to 6 pages. Submissions must be in double-column ACM format with a
font no smaller than 10 point (note: pages must be numbered). Only
PDF files will be accepted. Submissions not meeting these guidelines
risk rejection without consideration of their merits. Accepted papers
will be published by ACM Press and/or the ACM Digital Library.

*** Both research and position/vision/white papers are invited ***

Submissions must not substantially overlap with papers that have been
published or that are simultaneously submitted to a journal or a
conference with proceedings. All authors and their affiliations
must be listed.

Proposals for panels are also solicited. The proposals are to be
concise, up to 2 pages in length, describe the handled topics, name
potential panelists and briefly scope the panel for CCSW. Disruptive
and controversial panels are particularly encouraged.

Submissions: June 19, 2009, midnight PST
Author notification: August 16, 2009
Camera-ready: August 25, 2009
Workshop: November 13, 2009 at CCS
