The New Security Paradigms Workshop (NSPW) is seeking papers that address the current limitations of information security. Today's security risks are diverse and plentiful -- botnets, database breaches, phishing attacks, targeted cyber attacks -- and yet present tools for combating them are insufficient. To address these limitations, NSPW welcomes unconventional, promising approaches to important security problems and innovative critiques of current security theory and practice.

We are particularly interested in perspectives from outside computer security, both from other areas of computer science (such as operating systems, human-computer interaction, databases, programming lan- guages, algorithms) and other sciences that study adversarial relationships such as biology and economics. We discourage papers that offer incremental improvements to security and mature work that is appropriate for standard information security venues.

To facilitate research interactions, NSPW features informal paper presentations, extended discussions in small and large groups, shared activities, and group meals, all in attractive surroundings. By encouraging researchers to think "outside the box" and giving them an opportunity to communicate with open-minded peers, NSPW seeks to foster paradigm shifts in the field of information security.

In 2011, NSPW will be held at the Marconi Conference Center (Marin County, CA) from September 12th to 15th. We will accept about a dozen papers and invite the authors to attend the three-day workshop. One author of each accepted paper must attend NSPW; other authors may attend on a space-available basis. In order to ensure that all papers receive equally strong feedback, all attendees are expected to stay for the entire duration of the workshop. (We expect to offer a limited amount of financial aid to those who absolutely require it.) Final proceedings are published after the workshop. Authors always revise their papers to include feedback received at NSPW.

Submission deadline: April 4, 2011, 23:59 (UTC -12, Y time)
Please submit as a PDF file (ACM SIG formatting preferred, Option 1).
Notification of acceptance: June 3, 2011
Pre-proceedings version: August 1, 2011

Final version: October 31, 2011

NSPW 2011 Organizers:

General: Sean Peisert, University of California, Davis and Berkeley Lab
Vice-Chair: Richard Ford, Florida Institute of Technology
Program Committee Co-Chairs: Carrie Gates (carrie.gates@ca.com), CA Labs
Cormac Herley (cormac@microsoft.com), Microsoft Research
Program Committee: TBA

NSPW welcomes three categories of submissions:

Research papers,
Position papers (10 pages maximum), and
Discussion panel proposals.
Submissions should include a cover page with justification and attendance statements. A justification statement specifies the category of your submission, briefly describes why your submission is appropriate for NSPW and highlights the new paradigm proposed. An attendance statement specifies which of the authors wish to attend the workshop. One author of each accepted paper must attend NSPW; other authors may attend on a space-available basis. All submissions are treated as confidential, both as a matter of policy and in accordance with the U.S. Copyright Act of 1976.

NSPW does not accept papers that have been published elsewhere, nor papers that have been submitted to other conferences concurrently. Submissions accompanied by nondisclosure agreement forms will not be considered. Authors uncertain whether their submission meets the NSPW guidelines should contact the program chairs.

All accepted papers are shepherded to help authors incorporate feedback provided throughout the process. In order to ensure that all papers receive equally strong feedback, all attendees are expected to stay for the entire duration of the workshop. Final proceedings are published by the ACM after the workshop.

We expect to offer a limited amount of financial aid to those who absolutely require it.
