CALL FOR PAPERS - SAC 2016

The 31st ACM Symposium on Applied Computing
4-8 April 2016, Pisa, Italy
http://www.acm.org/conferences/sac/sac2016/

Track: Trust, Reputation, Evidence and other Collaboration Know-how (TRECK)

Proceedings: ACM printed form, ACM CD-ROM and ACM digital library

Aims and scope of the TRECK track:

Computational models of trust and online reputation mechanisms have
been gaining momentum.
The ACM SAC 2005, 2006, 2007, 2008, 2009, 2010, 2011, 2012, 2013, 2014
and 2015 TRECK tracks
attracted more than 280 researchers from both academia and industry who have
joined an online group at http://tech.groups.yahoo.com/group/trustcomp/

The goal of the ACM SAC 2016 TRECK track remains to review the set of
applications that benefit from the use of computational trust and online
reputation. Computational trust has been used in reputation systems, risk
management, collaborative filtering, social/business networking services,
dynamic coalitions, virtual organisations and even combined with trusted
computing hardware modules. The TRECK track covers all computational
trust/reputation applications, especially those used in real-world applications.

We would like to emphasize that we may accept the submission of
industrial experience reports,
commercial tools case studies and reports of innovative computing
applications if they are written in a scientific way.

This year, we have a special focus on Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) and
corporate security, trust, risk and privacy so those kinds of
contributions are especially welcome!

The FP7 MUSES project investigates BYOD and corporate security, trust,
risk and privacy and sponsors the ACM SAC'16 TRECK track,
