 The 2010 International Symposium on Collaborative Technologies and Systems
                                 (CTS 2010)

                              CALL FOR PAPERS

             Workshop on Collaboration and Security (COLSEC'10)

 The Westin Lombard Yorktown Center Chicago, Illinois, USA May 17-21, 2010 In
               Cooperation with ACM, IEEE, and IFIP (Pending) 

                   Submission Deadline: January 15, 2010

Brief Description:

Dynamic, on-demand, whole life-cycle, multi-domain, coalition, fusion 
between security technologies and models.

Collaboration relies on distributed systems that combine different 
resources, often provisioned on-demand for the duration of the mission 
or project. Security services are an important component of the 
collaboration infrastructure that ensures normal uninterruptible 
reliable operation of the collaborative systems. The open Internet and 
networking environment, over which the modern collaborative systems 
operate, impose a number of common and specific security threats and 
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, cloud and grid computing, multi-agent systems. 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 
2010 International Symposium on Collaborative Technologies and Systems 
(CTS'10), will focus on security issues related to collaborative systems 
with emphasis on distributed environments, Grid and cloud based resource 
virtualisation and on-demand provisioning, 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. The workshop will address issues related to the security 
infrastructure and services design, implementation and operation.  It 
intends to address new security challenges and present new ideas and 
solutions addressing modern security requirements, specific methods of 
access control that should allow large scale cooperation, use of mobile 
technologies and smartcards, enable intrusion detection, system 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
*  Security of Grid and Cluster Architectures Supporting Cooperative 
*  Security models for emerging Cloud Computing
*   High performance optical networking infrastructure for collaboration
*  Access Control in Collaborative Environments
*  Role Based Access Control, Reputation, and Trust
*  Cross Domain Identity and User Attributes Management Systems
*  Security Context Management in Scientific Workflow Applications
*  Security models and infrastructure for Complex Resource Provisioning 
   in Distributed Collaborative Systems, supporting the whole life-cycle 
   of the provisioned resources
*  Security model for Coalition Networks combining on-demand provisioned 
   multilayer infrastructure for communications, Information exchange 
   and human interaction
*  Security standards and security education
*  Relation between Infrastructure security, information security and 
   security management
*  Policy driven SLA negotiation
*  Privacy Protection for Collaborative Systems
*  Encryption and Cryptography Systems Supporting Cooperative Systems, 
   including group oriented and Identity Based Cryptography
*  Security for Specific Collaboration Domains (e.g., e-Government, 
   e-Business, Public Services, P2P, e-Social Security, Medical 
   Collaboration, etc.)
*  Virtual Organisations and dynamic security associations
*  Trust and reputation management in dynamic environment
*  Web Services Security
*  Security in multi agent systems
*  Secure collaborative agents
*  Using multi agent systems for security
*  Middleware Security
*  Use of Smartcards in the Context of Collaboration
*  Security in Mobile and Wireless Networks
*  Usability and security
*  Trusted Operating Systems for Distributed Environments
*  Honeypots for Collaborative Systems
*  Intrusion and Attacks Detection for Collaborative Systems
*  Collaborative Security Monitoring Schemes and Systems
*  Disclosure and Integrity Issues
*  Resistance to Denial of Service
*  Detection and Self-Recovery Schemes and Strategies Supporting 

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.  Please indicate clearly the corresponding 
author.  Include up to 6 keywords from the above list and an abstract of 
no more than 300 words. Please submit a PDF copy of your full manuscript 
not to 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 2010 template and requirements to be posted on the CTS 
web site.  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 web site later.

Further instructions will be provided at
