W2SP brings together researchers, practitioners, web programmers,
policy makers, and others interested in the latest understanding and
advances in the security and privacy of the web, browsers and their
eco-system. We have had five years of successful W2SP workshops. This
year, we will additionally invite selected papers to a special issue
of the journal.

W2SP is held in conjunction with the IEEE Symposium on Security and
privacy, which will take place from May 20-23, 2012, at the Westin
St. Francis Hotel in San Francisco.  W2SP will continue to be
open-access: all papers will be made available on the workshop
website, and authors will not need to forfeit their copyright.

We are seeking both short position papers (2–4 pages) and longer papers 
(a maximum of 10 pages). The scope of W2SP 2012 includes, but is not 
limited to:

    Trustworthy cloud-based services

    Security and privacy as a service
    Usable security and privacy
