      Opportunistic Networks are considered as an evolution of the Mobile
      Ad-hoc Networking paradigm, in which the assumption of an existing
      end-to-end connectivity is relaxed. The evolving topologies are expected
      to resemble the actual social networks of the communicating users and
      information on their characteristics can be a powerful aid for any
      network operation. Online services that assist social networks
      (facebook, linkedin, xing, etc.) in consequence are able to provide
      additional information on contacts and their relations. The lack of
      end-to-end connectivity and the use of personal information for the
      networking operations raise entirely new privacy concerns and require
      new reflections on security problems.

      The aim of this workshop is to encompass research advances in all areas
      of security, trust and privacy in Opportunistic and Social Networks.

      - new aspects of trust
      - privacy concerns
