The 2009 International Symposium on Collaborative Technologies and
Systems (CTS 2009)

CALL FOR PAPERS: Workshop on Collaboration and Security

May 18-22, 2009
The Westin Baltimore Washington International Airport Hotel
Baltimore, Maryland, USA

Submission Deadline: January 30, 2009

*** COLSEC 2009: Last Minute Information ***
*** Special issue of best papers ***
The publication of selected papers as a special issue in a computer
science journal is currently under negotiation. Selected papers will be
sollicited, from the best papers of COLSEC 2009 but also from previous
sessions of COLSEC, for submitting an extended version of their paper to
that special issue in a journal.

Brief Description:
Collaboration relies on distributed systems that provide the required
security properties. Virtual organizations often use the Internet to
support collaboration. The Internet, operating systems and distributed
environments currently suffer from poor security support and cannot
resist common attacks (spamming, worms, session hijacking, buffer
overflow, denial of service, social engineering, etc.). Collaborative
organizations require better security properties (strong authentication,
efficient encryption, Mandatory Access Control, integrity,
non-repudiation and availability). Nowadays, collaborative organizations
use new technologies such as mobile devices, smartcards, wireless
networks, high performance networks, grid computing, multi-agent
systems, peer-to-peer systems, sensor networks. These environments
introduce new needs, requirements and difficulties related to security.
Hence, collaborative organizations and technologies face several
challenges in the field of security.

This Workshop on Security and Collaboration - to be held as part of the
2009 International Symposium on Collaborative Technologies and Systems
(CTS’09) - will focus on security issues related to collaborative
systems with emphasis on distributed environments, smartcards, grid,
clusters and multi-agent systems, mobile and wireless cooperation. The
aim is to have a dedicated workshop that fosters closer interactions
among researchers and users communities, providing an excellent
opportunity for them to meet and discuss their ideas. It addresses
specifically relationships between collaborative systems and security.
It intends to present new challenges and solutions related to latest
security requirements, specific methods of access control enabling large
scale cooperation, usage of mobile technologies and smartcards, new
security infrastructures supporting better prevention, detection,
recovery and healing in the context of cooperative systems.

We invite original contributions from researchers in academia, research
institutions and industry on these emerging and important areas of
information technology.

Workshop topics must address security and collaboration:
* Frameworks for Security in Collaborative Systems
* Access Control in Collaborative Environments
* Trusted Operating Systems for Distributed Environments
* Security of Grid and Cluster Architectures Supporting Cooperative
* Honeypots for Collaborative Systems
* Intrusion and Attacks Detection for Collaborative Systems
* Role Based Security, Reputation, and Trust
* Cross Domain Identity Management Systems Collaboration
* Collaborative Security Monitoring Schemes and Systems
* Web Services Security
* Privacy Protection for Collaborative Systems
* Encryption and Cryptography Systems Supporting Cooperative Systems
* Use of Smartcards in the Context of Collaboration
* Disclosure and Integrity Issues of Collaborative systems
* Resistance to Denial of Service in Collaborative systems
* Detection and Self-Recovery Schemes and Strategies Supporting Cooperation
* Security in Multi Agent Systems
* Secure Collaborative Agents
* Using Multi Agent Systems for Security
* Security in Mobile and Wireless Networks
* Security of Ad Hoc and Sensor Networks
* Security in Peer to Peer Networks
* Security in Social Networks

Submission Instructions:
Papers reporting original and unpublished research results on above and
any other related topics are solicited. Submission should include a
cover page with authors' names, affiliations, addresses, fax and phone
numbers, and email addresses. Include up to 6 keywords from the above
list and an abstract of no more than 300 words. Authors can submit their
contribution as a short or long contribution:
• Short paper: it should present ongoing work of the researchers in
order to communicate and share their current ideas with the community.
It could also present new extended results of a previously published paper.
o Short papers should not exceed 4 pages in length in single-space, two
columns IEEE format Conference style.
• Long paper: this is a full research paper presenting innovative and
interesting research results, containing original and new material.
Long papers should not exceed 8 pages in length in single-space, two
columns IEEE format Conference style.

If accepted the final camera ready version will be following the CTS
2009 template and should not exceed 8 pages for long papers, 4 pages for
short papers. Electronic submissions will be accepted only in PDF format
uploaded at
For other electronic formats, please check with the organizers.

Consistent with standard practice, each submitted paper will receive a
minimum of three reviews. Papers will be selected based on their
originality, timeliness, significance, relevance, and clarity of
presentation. Initial selection will be based on full papers. Submission
implies the willingness of at least one of the authors to register and
present the paper, if accepted. All accepted papers in the Workshop are
required to be presented and will be included in the Symposium
proceedings. It is our intent to have the proceedings formally published
in hard and soft copies and be available at the time of the conference.
Instructions for final manuscript format and requirements will be posted
on the CTS 2009 Symposium web site later.

Further instructions will be provided at
