      A quick reminder...

      This is announcement of the call for papers for the fourth in a series

      Web 2.0.

      Workshop Call for Papers
      W2SP 2010: Web 2.0 Security and Privacy 2010
      Thursday, May 20
      The Claremont Resort, Oakland, California

      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. An ongoing explosion of new technology is powering
      increasingly complex social and business interactions as well as
      enabling an unprecedented level of unmediated information exchange and
      horizontal organization. These 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, businesses, and other organizations
      desire the simplicity, efficiency, and utility these technologies

      Though these technologies have had many positive effects, they raise
      issues about management of identities, personal safety, reputation,
      privacy, anonymity, transient and long-term relationships, and
      composition of function and content, both on the server and on the
      client side (web browsers and mobile platforms). Although many of the
      underlying security and privacy issues are not new, the use of these
      technologies by very large and disparate populations raises new
      questions. This workshop is intended to discuss the limitations of
      current technologies and explore alternatives.

      The scope of W2SP 2010 includes, but is not limited to:

      Trustworthy cloud-based services
      Usable security and privacy
      Security and privacy as a service
      Security for the mobile web
      Identity management and psuedonymity
      Web services/feeds/mashups
      Security and privacy policies for composible content
      Next-generation browser technology
      Secure extensions and plug-ins
      Advertisement and affiliate fraud

      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, including references and appendices). 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; W2SP has no
      formal published proceedings.

      For papers that focus primarily on the security and privacy of social
      networks, we encourage authors to submit their paper to the Social
      Network Security and Privacy (SNSP) workshop, which is concurrent and
      co-located with W2SP. Submitted papers may be referred to the SNSP
      program committee for consideration.
