ACM Workshop on Digital Rights Management (ACM DRM 2011)
Chicago, USA, October 21, 2011
held in conjunction with ACM CCS 2011

The ACM Workshop on Digital Rights Management is an international
forum that serves as an interdisplinary bridge between areas that
can be applied to solving the problem of Intellectual Property
protection of digital content. These include: cryptography, software
and computer systems design, trusted computing, information and
signal processing, intellectual property law, policy-making, as
well as business analysis and economics. Its purpose is to bring
together researchers from the above fields for a full day of formal
talks and informal discussions, covering new results that will spur
new investigations regarding the foundations and practices of DRM.
This year's workshop, the 11th in the series, continues this tradition.

Topics of interest include but are not limited to:

- Content identification including digital watermarking and fingerprinting
- Anonymous publishing
- Privacy and DRM
- Architectures for DRM systems
- Security issues, including authorization
- Supporting cryptographic technology including traitor tracing,
  broadcast encryption
- Software tamper resistance, obfuscation, plagiarism detection
- Trusted computing, attestation, hardware support for DRM
- Usability aspects of DRM systems
- Attacks against DRM systems
- Web services related to DRM systems
- Implementations and case studies
- Regulatory authority for DRM, interoperability
- IP protection
- Business models for online content distribution, risk management
- Copyright-law issues, including but not limited to fair use
