                     The 2009 International Symposium on
                    Collaborative Technologies and Systems
                                  (CTS 2009)

                                CALL FOR PAPERS

               Workshop on Collaboration and Security (COLSEC'09) 

                              May 18-22, 2009
        The Westin Baltimore Washington International Airport Hotel
                          Baltimore, Maryland, USA 

                     Submission Deadline:  January 30, 2009

Brief Description: Collaboration relies on distributed systems that 
provide the required security properties.  Virtual organizations often 
use the Internet to support collaboration.  The Internet, operating 
systems and distributed environments currently suffer from poor security 
support and cannot resist common attacks (spamming, worms, session 
hijacking, buffer overflow, denial of service, social engineering, 
etc.).  Collaborative organizations require better security properties 
(strong authentication, efficient encryption, Mandatory Access Control, 
integrity, non-repudiation and availability).  Nowadays, collaborative 
organizations use new technologies such as mobile devices, smartcards, 
wireless networks, high performance networks, grid computing, 
multi-agent systems, peer-to-peer systems, sensor networks.  These 
environments introduce new needs, requirements and difficulties related 
to security.  Hence, collaborative organizations and technologies face 
several challenges in the field of security.

This Workshop on Security and Collaboration - to be held as part of the 
2009 International Symposium on Collaborative Technologies and Systems 
(CTS'09) - will focus on security issues related to collaborative 
systems with emphasis on distributed environments, smartcards, grid, 
clusters and multi-agent systems, mobile and wireless cooperation.  The 
aim is to have a dedicated workshop that fosters closer interactions 
among researchers and users communities, providing an excellent 
opportunity for them to meet and discuss their ideas.  It addresses 
specifically relationships between collaborative systems and security. 
It intends to present new challenges and solutions related to latest 
security requirements, specific methods of access control enabling large 
scale cooperation, usage of mobile technologies and smartcards, new 
security infrastructures supporting better prevention, detection, 
recovery and healing in the context of cooperative systems.

We invite original contributions from researchers in academia, research 
institutions and industry on these emerging and important areas of 
information technology.

Workshop topics must address security and collaboration:
*  Frameworks for Security in Collaborative Systems
*  Access Control in Collaborative Environments
*  Trusted Operating Systems for Distributed Environments
*  Security of Grid and Cluster Architectures Supporting Cooperative Applications
*  Honeypots for Collaborative Systems
*  Intrusion and Attacks Detection for Collaborative Systems
*  Role Based Security, Reputation, and Trust
*  Cross Domain Identity Management Systems Collaboration
*  Collaborative Security Monitoring Schemes and Systems
*  Web Services Security
*  Privacy Protection for Collaborative Systems
*  Encryption and Cryptography Systems Supporting Cooperative Systems
*  Use of Smartcards in the Context of Collaboration
*  Disclosure and Integrity Issues of Collaborative systems
*  Resistance to Denial of Service in Collaborative systems
*  Detection and Self-Recovery Schemes and Strategies Supporting Cooperation
*  Security in Multi Agent Systems
*  Secure Collaborative Agents
*  Using Multi Agent Systems for Security
*  Security in Mobile and Wireless Networks
*  Security of Ad Hoc and Sensor Networks
*  Security in Peer to Peer Networks
*  Security in Social Networks

Submission Instructions:

Papers reporting original and unpublished research results on above and 
any other related topics are solicited.  Submission should include a 
cover page with authors' names, affiliations, addresses, fax and phone 
numbers, and email addresses. Include up to 6 keywords from the above 
list and an abstract of no more than 300 words.  Authors can submit 
their contribution as a short or long contribution:

Short paper: it should present ongoing work of the researchers in order 
to communicate and share their current ideas with the community.  It 
could also present new extended results of a previously published paper. 
Short papers should not exceed 4 pages in length in single-space, two 
columns IEEE format Conference style.

Long paper: this is a full research paper presenting innovative and 
interesting research results, containing original and new material. Long 
papers should not exceed 8 pages in length in single-space, two columns 
IEEE format Conference style.

If accepted the final camera ready version will be following the CTS 
2009 template and should not exceed 8 pages for long papers, 4 pages for 
short papers.  Electronic submissions will be accepted only in PDF 
format uploaded at For other 
electronic formats, please check with the organizers.

Consistent with standard practice, each submitted paper will receive a 
minimum of three reviews.  Papers will be selected based on their 
originality, timeliness, significance, relevance, and clarity of 
presentation.  Initial selection will be based on full papers. 
Submission implies the willingness of at least one of the authors to 
register and present the paper, if accepted. All accepted papers in the 
Workshop are required to be presented and will be included in the 
Symposium proceedings.  It is our intent to have the proceedings 
formally published in hard and soft copies and be available at the time 
of the conference.  Instructions for final manuscript format and 
requirements will be posted on the CTS 2009 Symposium web site later.

Further instructions will be provided at
