2011 New Security Paradigms Workshop 
         Marin County, CA, USA - September 12-15, 2011 

The New Security Paradigms Workshop (NSPW) is seeking papers that address 
the current limitations of information security. Today's security risks 
are diverse and plentiful - botnets, database breaches, phishing attacks, 
targeted cyber attacks - and yet present tools for combating them are 
insufficient. To address these limitations, NSPW welcomes unconventional, 
promising approaches to important security problems and innovative critiques 
of current security theory and practice.  We are particularly interested 
in perspectives from outside computer security, both from other areas of 
computer science (such as operating systems, human-computer interaction, 
databases, programming languages, algorithms) and other sciences that study 
adversarial relationships such as biology and economics.  We discourage 
papers that offer incremental improvements to security and mature work 
that is appropriate for standard information security venues. 

To facilitate research interactions, NSPW features informal paper 
presentations, extended discussions in small and large groups, shared 
activities, and group meals, all in attractive surroundings. By encouraging 
researchers to think "outside the box" and giving them an opportunity 
to communicate with open-minded peers, NSPW seeks to foster paradigm 
shifts in the field of information security. 

In 2011, NSPW will be held at the Marconi Conference Center (Marin County, 
CA) from September 12th to 15th. We will accept about a dozen papers and 
invite the authors to attend the three-day workshop.  One author of each 
accepted paper must attend NSPW; other authors may attend on a space-available 
basis.  In order to ensure that all papers receive equally strong feedback, 
all attendees are expected to stay for the entire duration of the workshop. 
(We expect to offer a limited amount of financial aid to those who absolutely 
require it.) Final proceedings are published after the workshop. Authors 
always revise their papers to include feedback received at NSPW.
