 The 5th International Workshop on Trusted Collaboration


       Chicago, Illinois, USA. October 9, 2010    






The ongoing, rapid developments in information systems technologies
and networking have enabled significant opportunities for streamlining
decision making processes and maximizing productivity through
distributed collaborations that facilitate unprecedented levels of
sharing of information and computational resources. Emerging
collaborative environments need to provide efficient support for
seamless integration of heterogeneous technologies such as mobile
devices and infrastructures, web services, grid computing systems,
online social networks, various operating environments, and diverse
COTS products. Such heterogeneity introduces, however, significant
security and privacy challenges for distributed collaborative
applications. Balancing the competing goals of collaboration and
security is difficult because interaction in collaborative systems is
targeted towards making people, information, and resources available
to all who need it whereas information security seeks to ensure the
availability, confidentiality, and integrity of these elements while
providing it only to those with proper trustworthiness. The key goal
of this workshop is to foster active interactions among diverse
researchers and practitioners, and generate added momentum towards
research in finding viable solutions to the security and privacy
challenges faced by the current and future collaborative systems and

We solicit unpublished research papers that address theoretical issues
and practical implementations/experiences related to security and
privacy solutions for collaborative systems. Topics of interest
include, but are not limited to:

- Secure dynamic coalition environments

- Secure distributed multimedia collaboration

- Privacy control in collaborative environments

- Secure workflows for collaborative computing

- Policy-based management of collaborative workspace

- Secure middleware for large scale collaborative infrastructures

- Security and privacy issues in mobile collaborative applications

- Security frameworks and architectures for trusted collaboration

- Secure interoperation in multidomain collaborative environments

- Identity management for large scale collaborative infrastructures

- Semantic web technologies for secure collaborative infrastructure

- Trust models, trust negotiation/management for collaborative systems

- Access control models and mechanisms for collaboration environments

- Protection models and mechanisms for peer-to-peer collaborative environments

- Delegation, accountability, and information flow control in
  collaborative applications

- Intrusion detection, recovery and survivability of collaborative

- Security of web services and grid technologies for supporting
  multidomain collaborative applications

- Security and privacy challenges in cloud-based collaborative applications
