The Third ACM Workshop on Scalable Trusted Computing
                                (ACM STC'08)
                 (held in conjunction with the ACM CCS'08)
                          Friday Oct 31, 2008
                          George Mason University
                          Fairfax, Virginia, USA
Built on the continuous success of ACM STC'06 and STC'07, this
workshop focuses on fundamental technologies of trusted computing
and its applications in large-scale systems -- those involving
large number of users and parties with varying degrees of trust.
The workshop is intended to serve as a forum for researchers as
well as practitioners to disseminate and discuss recent advances
and emerging issues.
The workshop solicits two types of original papers that are
single-column using at least 11pt fonts. The length of the
full-paper submissions is at most 15 pages excluding bibliography,
appendix etc. The total number of pages should not be more than
20, whereas the reviewers are not required to read the appendix.
The length of short/work-in-progress/position-paper submissions is
at most 8 pages excluding bibliography. A paper submitted to this
workshop must not be in parallel submission to any other journal,
magazine, conference or workshop with proceedings. It is up to the
authors to decide whether a submission should be anonymous.
Topics of interests include but not limited to:
    * security policies and models of trusted computing
    * architecture and implementation technologies for trusted platform
    * limitations, alternatives and tradeoffs regarding trusted computing
    * trust in authentications, users and computing services
    * hardware based trusted computing
    * software based trusted computing
    * pros and cons of hardware based approach
    * remote attestation of trusted devices
    * censorship-freeness in trusted computing
    * cryptographic support in trusted computing
    * case study in trusted computing
    * applications of trusted computing
    * intrusion resilience in trusted computing
    * access control for trusted computing
    * principles for handling scales
    * scalable trust supports and services
    * trusted embedded computing and systems
    * trusted computing in networks and distributed systems
    * virtualization and trusted computing
