      CALL FOR PAPERS - SAC 2009

      The 24th ACM Symposium on Applied Computing

      March 8 - 12, 2009, Hilton Hawaiian Village Beach Resort & Spa
      Waikiki Beach, Honolulu, Hawaii, USA


      Fifth ACM SAC Trust, Reputation, Evidence and other Collaboration
      Know-how (TRECK) Track

      For the past twenty years, the ACM Symposium on Applied Computing has
      been a primary gathering forum for applied computer scientists,
      computer engineers, software engineers, and application developers
      from around the world.

      SAC 2009 is sponsored by the ACM Special Interest Group on Applied
      Computing. Its proceedings are published by ACM in both printed form
      and CD-ROM; they are also available on the Web through the ACM Digital
      Library. More information about SIGAPP and past editions of SAC can be
      found at http://www.acm.org/sigapp. The best papers may also be
      published in a Journal Special Issue.

      Aims and scope of the TRECK track:

      Computational models of trust and online reputation mechanisms have
      been gaining momentum. The ACM SAC 2005, 2006, 2007 and 2008 TRECK
      tracks attracted researchers from both academia and industry who have
      joined an online group at http://tech.groups.yahoo.com/group/trustcomp/

      The goal of the ACM SAC 2009 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/reputation applications, especially
      those used in real-world applications.

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

      * Recommender and reputation systems
      * Trust management, reputation management and identity management
      * Pervasive computational trust and use of context-awareness
      * Mobile trust, context-aware trust
      * Web 2.0 reputation and trust
      * Trust-based collaborative applications
      * Automated collaboration and trust negotiation
      * Trade-off between privacy and trust
      * Trust/risk-based security frameworks
      * Combined computational trust and trusted computing
      * Tangible guarantees given by formal models of trust and risk
      * Trust metrics assessment and threat analysis
      * 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 and
      reputation engines
      * User-studies and user interfaces of computational trust and
      online reputation applications

      Submission guidelines:

      Authors are invited to submit full papers about original and
      unpublished research. We would like to encourage the submission of
      industrial experience reports and reports of innovative computing

      Parallel submission to other conferences, other tracks of SAC 2009 or
      any other publications is forbidden. Papers submitted should not have
      been previously published and should not be subsequently published in
      the same form elsewhere.

      Submissions should be properly anonymized to facilitate blind
      reviewing: papers being submitted should not list the authors,
      affiliations or addresses on the first page and authors are also
      encouraged to take care throughout the entire document to minimise
      references that may reveal the identity of the authors or institution.
      The body of each paper should not exceed 5,000 words. Papers failing
      to comply with length limitations risk immediate rejection.

      At least three reviewers will be assigned to each submission to the
      TRECK track. Accepted papers are published by ACM in both printed form
      and CD-ROM; they are also available on the Web through the ACM Digital
      Library. Once accepted, papers must fit within five (5) two column
      pages (please check the author kit on the main SAC website: the format
      is usually the format used in the ACM templates), with the option (at
      additional expense) to add three (3) more pages. A second set of
      selected papers, which did not get accepted as full papers, will be
      accepted as posters and will be published as extended 2-page abstracts
      in the symposium proceedings. Authors of accepted papers must be
      prepared to sign a copyright statement and must guarantee that their
      paper will be presented at the conference.

      Submission of the full paper (PDF only) will be accepted until 23.59
      PM GMT, August 16th, 2008. No more papers will be accepted after that

      Please register and submit your abstract and paper via the link called
      "online paper management system" on the "Paper Submission" page of the
      Web site http://www.trustcomp.org/treck/
