      CALL FOR PAPERS - SAC 2008

      The 23rd ACM Symposium on Applied Computing
      March 16 - 20, 2008, Fortaleza, Ceará, Brazil

      Track: Trust, Recommendations, Evidence and other Collaboration
      Know-how (TRECK)

      Proceedings: ACM printed form, ACM CD-ROM and ACM digital library (a
      Journal special issue as for TRECK'05 will be considered)!

      Aims and scope of the TRECK track:

      Computational models of trust and online reputation mechanisms have
      been gaining momentum. The ACM SAC 2005, 2006 and 2007 TRECK tracks in
      Santa Fe, Dijon and Seoul attracted researchers from both academia and

      The goal of the ACM SAC 2008 TRECK track remains to review the set of
      applications that benefit from the use of computational trust and
      online reputation. Computational trust has been used in reputation
      systems, risk management, collaborative filtering, social/business
      networking services, dynamic coalitions, virtual organisations and
      even combined with trusted computing hardware modules. The TRECK track
      covers all computational trust applications, especially those used in
      real-world applications.

      The topics of interest include, but are not limited to:

      Recommender and reputation systems

      Trust-enhanced collaborative applications

      Trust and identity management

      Combined computational trust and trusted computing

      Tangible guarantees given by formal models of trust and risk

      Trust metrics assessment and threat analysis

      Pervasive computational trust and use of context-awareness

      Autonomic and adaptive trust

      Trade-off between privacy and trust

      Trust/risk-based security frameworks

      Automated collaboration and trust negotiation

      Trust in peer-to-peer and open source systems

      Technical trust evaluation and certification

      Impacts of social networks on computational trust

      Evidence gathering and management

      Real-world applications, running prototypes and advanced simulations

      Applicability in large-scale, open and decentralised environments

      Legal and economic aspects related to the use of trust engines

      User-studies and user interfaces of computational trust applications

      Submission guidelines are posted on the TRECK 2008 website
      (http://www.trustcomp.org/treck/), which always contains the latest

      Authors are invited to submit full papers about original and
      unpublished research. A paper cannot be submitted to more than one
      track. We would like to encourage the submission of industrial
      experience reports and reports of innovative computing applications.

      The body of each paper should not exceed 5,000 words.

      Submissions should be properly anonymized to facilitate blind reviewing.
      At least three reviewers will be assigned to each submission to the
      TRECK track.


      Sep. 8, 2007: Full paper submission

      Oct. 16, 2007: Author notification

      Oct. 30, 2007: Camera-ready copy

      Mar. 16-20, 2008: ACM SAC in Fortaleza, Brazil

      Conference Venue:
      The symposium will be held at the beach in Fortaleza, Ceará, Brazil.
      Fortaleza (Portuguese for fortress) is the State capital of Ceará,
      located in the sunny northeastern region of Brazil. With a population
      of more than 2.5 million, Fortaleza is a modern metropolis with
      greenish-blue sea, beautiful white-sand beaches, softy wind and a
      vibrating nightlife. Its complete tourism infrastructure and a rapidly
      growing industry make it one of the most important cities in the
      region in economic terms. Fortaleza has been for the last 3 years one
      of the most searched for cities in Brazil during holidays, second only
      to Rio. Fortaleza has a mild to warm temperature averaging at 27C
      (82F) all year around.
      Fortaleza is very well served of top-class restaurants, especially
      from seafood to the famous brazilian barbecues and feijoada (a black
      beans dish)...
