      Workshop Call for Papers
      W2SP 2009: Web 2.0 Security and Privacy 2009
      Thursday, May 21
      The Claremont Resort, Oakland, California

      Previous W2SP Workshops: 2008, 2007

      The goal of this one day workshop is to bring together researchers and practitioners from academia and industry to focus on understanding Web 2.0 security and privacy issues, and establishing new collaborations in these areas.

      Web 2.0 is about connecting people and amplifying the power of working together. Enabled by a wave of new technology, these social and business interactions rely on composition of content and services from multiple sources, commonly called mash-ups, leading to systems with complex trust boundaries. This trend is likely to continue because individuals and businesses desire the efficiency and simplicity these technologies offer.

      Together with their virtues, these technologies raise issues about management of identities, reputation, privacy, anonymity, transient and long term relationships, and composition of function and content, both on the server and on the client (web browser). Although the underlying security and privacy issues are not new, the use of these technologies on a wide scale and by a broad audience raises new questions. This workshop is intended to discuss the limitations of current technologies and explore alternatives.

      The scope of W2SP 2009 includes, but is not limited to:

      • Trustworthy cloud-based services
      • Privacy and reputation in social networks
      • Usable security and privacy
      • Security for the mobile web
      • Identity management and psuedonymity
      • Advertisement and affiliate fraud
      • Provenance and governance
      • Security and privacy as a service
      • Web services/feeds/mashups
      • Security and privacy policies for composible content
      • Next-generation browser technology
      Potential workshop participants should submit a paper on topics relevant to Web 2.0 security and privacy issues. We are seeking both short position papers (2–4 pages) and refereed papers (a maximum of 8 pages). Papers longer than 8 pages may be automatically rejected by the chair or workshop committee. From the submissions, the program committee will strive to balance participation between academia and industry and across topics. Selected papers will appear on the workshop web site.
