Call for Papers

STM (Security and Trust Management) is a working group of ERCIM (European Research Consortium in Informatics and Mathematics). STM 2009 is the fifth workshop in this series and will be held in Saint Malo, France, in conjunction with ESORICS 2009 (14th European Symposium on Research in Computer Security). STM has the following aims:
  • to investigate the foundations and applications of security and trust in ICT;
  • to study the deep interplay between trust management and common security issues such as confidentiality, integrity, and availability;
  • to identify and promote new areas of research connected with security management (e.g. dynamic and mobile coalition management, P2P, MANETs, Web/GRID services);
  • to identify and promote new areas of research connected with trust management (e.g., reputation, recommendation, and collaboration);
  • to provide a platform for presenting and discussing emerging ideas and trends.
Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:

access control reputation systems and architectures
cryptography security and trust management architectures
data protection semantics and computational models for security and trust
digital right management trust assessment and negotiation
economics of security and privacy trust in mobile code
key management trust in pervasive environments
ICT for securing digital as well as physical assets trust models
identity management trust management policies
networked systems security trusted platforms and trustworthy systems
privacy and anonymity trustworthy user devices

The primary focus is on high-quality original unpublished research, case studies, and implementation experiences. We encourage submissions discussing the application and deployment of security technologies in practice.

Paper Submissions

Submitted papers must not substantially overlap papers that have been published or that are simultaneously submitted to a journal or a conference with proceedings. Papers should be at most 12 pages in ENTCS style format (using the generic template), including the bibliography and well-marked appendices. Committee members are not required to read the appendices, and so the paper should be intelligible without them. Submissions are to be made to the submission web site ( Only pdf files will be accepted. Submissions not meeting these guidelines risk rejection without consideration of their merits. Papers must be received by the deadline of June 30, 2009. Authors of accepted papers must guarantee that their papers will be presented at the workshop. Accepted papers will be published in a post-workshop ENTCS volume.
