Building on the success of INTRUST 2009 and INTRUST 2010 (both were
held in Beijing, P. R. China), this conference focuses on the theory,
technologies and applications of trusted systems. It is devoted to all
aspects of trusted computing systems, including trusted modules,
platforms, networks, services and applications, from their fundamental
features and functionalities to design principles, architecture and
implementation technologies. The goal of the conference is to bring
academic and industrial researchers, designers, and implementers
together with end-users of trusted systems, in order to foster the
exchange of ideas in this challenging and fruitful area. The
conference will be hosted by the Beijing Institute of Technology (BIT)
and ONETS.

INTRUST 2011 solicits original papers on any aspect of the theory,
advanced development and applications of trusted computing,
trustworthy systems and general trust issues in modern computing
systems. The conference will have an academic track and an industrial
track. This call for papers is for contributions to both of the
tracks. Submissions to the academic track should emphasize theoretical
and practical research contributions to general trusted system
technologies, while submissions to the industrial track may focus on
experiences in the implementation and deployment of real-world

Instructions for authors

Submissions must not substantially duplicate work that any of the
authors has published elsewhere or has submitted in parallel to any
journal or other conference or workshop that has
proceedings. Submissions will take place entirely via a web
system. All submissions will be blind-reviewed. Papers must be
anonymous, with no author names, affiliations, acknowledgements, or
obvious references. A submitted paper should begin with a title, a
short abstract, and a list of keywords.

As was the vase for INTRUST 2009 and 2010, the proceedings of INTRUST
2011 will, as a plan, be published in the Springer-Verlag Lecture
Notes in Computer Science series and will be available after the
conference. Clear instructions for the preparation of a final
proceedings version will be sent to the authors of accepted papers. We
strongly recommend that authors submit their papers in the standard
LNCS format (see for the
details) with length at most 15 pages (excluding bibliography and
appendices). Committee members are not required to review more than
that, so the paper should be intelligible and self-contained within
this length. Submissions not meeting these guidelines risk rejection
without consideration of their merits.

Authors of accepted papers must guarantee that their paper will be
presented at the conference. Authors are asked to clearly indicate
whether their submissions are for the academic track or the industrial
track in the title.

The conference has a best paper award sponsored by Singapore
Management University for US$1000; all papers are eligible for this
