Renaissance Pittsburgh Hotel, Pittsburgh, June, 9-11, 2010

Papers offering novel research contributions in all aspects of access
control are solicited for submission to the ACM Symposium on Access
Control Models and Technologies (SACMAT). SACMAT 2010 is the fifteenth
of a successful series of symposiums that continue the tradition,
first established by the ACM Workshop on Role-Based Access Control, of
being the premier forum for presentation of research results and
experience reports on leading edge issues of access control, including
models, systems, applications, and theory. The missions of the
symposium are to share novel access control solutions that fulfill the
needs of heterogeneous applications and environments and to identify
new directions for future research and development. SACMAT gives
researchers and practitioners a unique opportunity to share their
perspectives with others interested in the various aspects of access

Topics of interest include but are not limited to:      

*	Access control models and extensions     
*	Access control requirements     
*	Access control design methodology     
*	Access control mechanisms, systems, and tools     
*	Access control in distributed and mobile systems     
*	Access control for innovative applications     
*	Administration of access control policies     
*	Delegation     
*	Identity management     
*	Policy/Role Engineering     
*	Safety analysis and enforcement     
*	Standards for access control     
*	Trust management     
*	Trust models     
*	Theoretical foundations for access control models     
*	Usage control     
*	Access control models and mechanisms in Cloud Computing    
*	Access control models and mechanisms for Social Web    
*	Privacy-preserving access control

Accepted papers will be presented at the symposium and published by
the ACM in the symposium proceedings.  Outstanding papers will be
invited for possible publication in ACM TISSEC submission.


Papers must be written in English. We require that the authors use the
ACM format for papers, using one of the ACM SIG Proceeding Templates
( The length of
the paper in the proceedings format should not exceed ten US letter
pages, excluding well-marked appendices. Committee members are not
required to read the appendices, so papers must be intelligible
without them. Papers are to be submitted electronically as a single
PDF file, formatted for 8.5" X 11" paper, and no more than 5MB
in size. It is the responsibility of the authors to ensure that their
submission will print easily on simple default configurations. 

The submission MUST be anonymous, with no author names, affiliations,
acknowledgements, or obvious references. Further submission details
will be available on-line.

All submissions MUST reflect original work and MUST adequately
document any overlap with previously published or simultaneously
submitted papers from any of the authors. Failure to do so will lead
to automatic rejection. In particular, simultaneous submission of the
same paper to another conference or journal venue is not allowed. If
authors have any doubts regarding such overlaps, they should contact
the Program Chair before submission.

Panel proposals should be no longer than two (2) pages in length, and
should include possible panelists, indicating those who have confirmed
participation. Proposals can be e-mailed to the Panels Chair,
