[Condor-users] Deadline for Workshop on Grid Security & Privacy extended

Please note that the deadline for submission to the Workshop on Grid Security & Privacy has been extended to April 15.


Workshop on Grid Security & Privacy 2005 - Call for Papers
September 2005
Athens, Greece

Held at SecureComm (http://www.securecomm.org/)
Workshop Website: http://gipse.cse.nd.edu/GSP


Until recently, application developers could often assume a target environment that was homogeneous, reliable, secure, and centrally managed. However, with the advent of collaborative computing and data sharing, more and more new modes of interaction have evolved resulting in the need and use of distributed resources for large-scale scientific research. Work within this community has led to the development of Grid technologies, which address precisely these problems and which are seeing widespread and successful adoption for scientific and enterprise computing. In grid computing, heterogeneous resources distributed geographically are virtualized as a unified whole. Grid computing, as a result, provides enormous opportunity in terms of resource sharing, maximization of resource utilization and virtualization of resources. Because of its immense potential, not only the scientific community, but also the enterprise IT communities are excited about the prospect of grid computing. However, researchers and developers of grid computing are worried about the possible security issues and implication of wide-spread use of grid computing. Since, grid computing involves running of applications in diverse environments, different types of security issues arise. The goal of the Workshop on Grid Security and Privacy 2005 is to have a profound understanding of the security issues, counter measures and research problems that exist in the realm of grid computing through the sharing of ideas. To achieve this goal, this workshop solicits original, previously unpublished research contributions on (but not restricted to) the following subject categories:

    * Secure algorithms and protocols over grid
    * Grid Sandboxing Techniques
    * Policy mapping and virtualization techniques over grid
    * Grid Intrusion Detection techniques
    * Secure grid solutions and its applications
    * Obfuscation and privacy mechanisms over grid
    * Grid based auditing techniques

Submission of Papers :

Authors are invited to submit complete and original papers. Papers to be submitted should not have been previously published in another forum, and should not be currently under review by another journal or conference. All submitted papers will be refereed for quality, correctness, originality and relevance. An accepted paper must be presented by one of the authors at the workshop venue. These accepted papers will be published as part of the SecureComm conference proceedings via CD-ROM. All manuscripts must be limited to 10 pages with font size 11 in standard IEEE camera ready format (double column). The Program Committee reserves the right to decline without review any papers that exceed these length specifications. Submissions also must include the title, author(s) and affiliation, e-mail address, fax/phone numbers and postal address. In case of multiple authors, indicate which author is responsible for correspondence and preparing the camera ready paper for the proceedings. Electronic submission is required via ps or pdf.

Important Dates:

Paper Submission: April 15, 2005
Notification: May 23, 2005
Camera-Ready: June 10, 2005 (Absolute deadline)
