[PVS] FAST 2008: Formal Aspects of Security and Trust






Do you think that you -- or your colleagues -- would like to
submit something to FAST 2008?  It's the International
Workshop on Formal Aspects in Security & Trust.

FAST didn't meet last year, but in 2006 we met together with
Formal Methods.  This year, we're meeting together with
ESORICS in early October in Malaga.  

The 2006 meeting was very successful:  interesting talks, a
room full of interesting people, and an LNCS volume for the
proceedings.  This year, there will again be an LNCS volume.

Do you think you could help by contributing an interesting
paper?  The deadline is listed as 25 June, but we're likely
to extend it a week or so.  

Thanks!  

Cheers --

5th International Workshop on Formal Aspects in
       Security & Trust (FAST2008)
  October 9-10 2008 Malaga, Spain
	www.iit.cnr.it/FAST2008/

  FAST2006 is a satellite event of 14th
    Formal Methods Symposium (FM2008).

FAST is under the auspices of IFIP WG 1.7

OVERVIEW OF FAST

The fifth International Workshop on Formal Aspects in Security and
Trust (FAST2008) aims at continuing the successful efforts of the
previous FAST workshops, fostering the cooperation among researchers
in the areas of security and trust.

As computing and network infrastructures become increasingly
pervasive, and as they carry increasing economic activity, society
needs well matched security and trust mechanisms.  These interactions
increasingly span several enterprises and involve loosely structured
communities of individuals.  Participants in these activities must
control interactions with their partners based on trust policies and
business logic.  Trust-based decisions effectively determine the
security goals for shared information and for access to sensitive or
valuable resources.

FAST focuses on the formal models of security and trust that are
needed to state goals and policies for these interactions.  We also
seek new and innovative techniques for establishing consequences of
these formal models.  Implementation approaches for such techniques
are also welcome.

PROCEEDINGS
As for the previous editions, the post-proceedings of the
workshop will be published with LNCS and a special journal 
issue is also planned.


SUBMISSION GUIDELINES:

We seek papers presenting original contributions. Two formats of
submissions are possible:

(1) short papers, up to 5 pages, 
(2) full papers, up to 15 pages.

Submissions should clearly state their category (1 or 2). Author's
full name, address, and e-mail must appear in the first page.

Accepted full papers will be published in the formal post-proceedings.
Short papers as well as full papers will be published in the informal
proceedings distributed at the workshop. After the workshop, authors
of short papers which are judged mature enough for publication will be
invited to submit full papers. These will be reviewed according to the
usual refereeing procedures, and accepted papers will be published in
the post-proceedings in LNCS (together with the accepted full
papers). 

Simultaneous submission of full papers to a journal or
conference/workshop with formal proceedings justifies rejection.
Short papers at FAST are not formally published, so this restriction
does not apply to them.  However, related publications and overlapping
submissions must be cited explicitly in short papers.
