The New Security Paradigms Workshop (NSPW) is seeking papers that 
address the current limitations of information security. Today's 
security risks are diverse and plentiful--botnets, database breaches, 
phishing attacks, distributed denial-of-service attacks--and yet present 
tools for combatting them are insufficient. To address these 
limitations, NSPW welcomes unconventional, promising approaches to 
important security problems and innovative critiques of current security 

We are particularly interested in perspectives from outside computer 
security, both from other areas of computer science (such as operating 
systems, human-computer interaction, databases, programming languages, 
algorithms) and other sciences that study adversarial relationships such 
as biology and economics. We discourage papers that offer incremental 
improvements to security and mature work that is appropriate for 
standard information security venues.

To facilitate research interactions, NSPW features informal paper 
presentations, extended discussions in small and large groups, shared 
activities, and group meals, all in attractive surroundings. By 
encouraging researchers to think ``outside the box'' and giving them an 
opportunity to communicate with open-minded peers, NSPW seeks to foster 
paradigm shifts in the field of information security.


NSPW welcomes three categories of submissions:

* research papers, 
* position papers (10 pages maximum), and
* discussion panel proposals.

Submissions should include a cover page with justification and 
attendance statements. A justification statement specifies the category 
of your submission and briefly describes why your submission is 
appropriate for NSPW. An attendance statement specifies which of the 
authors wish to attend the workshop. Note that all accepted papers are 
shepherded to help authors incorporate the feedback provided throughout 
the process. One author of each accepted paper must attend NSPW; other 
authors may attend on a space-available basis. In order to ensure that 
all papers receive equally strong feedback, all attendees are expected 
to stay for the entire duration of the workshop. We expect to offer a 
limited amount of financial aid to those who absolutely require it.

Final proceedings are published by the ACM after the workshop. All 
submissions are treated as confidential, both as a matter of policy and 
in accordance with the U.S. Copyright Act of 1976. Submissions 
accompanied by nondisclosure agreement forms will not be considered.

NSPW is an ACSA Conference, sponsored by Applied Computer Security 
Associates, a group of professionals who are working to facilitate 
information sharing among colleagues. We're an all-volunteer 
not-for-profit organization.=C2=A0 Our postal address is 2906 Covington Road,
