8th VLDB Workshop on Secure Data Management (SDM 2011)

- with special sessions on trustworthy cloud computing and trust in digital life -

September 2, 2011

The Westin, Seattle, US

In conjunction with 37th International Conference on Very Large Databases

Call for Papers:

The 8th SDM workshop builds upon the success of the first seven workshops (SDM'04, SDM'05,

SDM'06, SDM'07, SDM'08, SDM'09, SDM'10), which were organized in conjunction with VLDB

2004 in Toronto, Canada, VLDB 2005 in Trondheim, Norway, VLDB 2006 in Seoul, Korea,

VLDB 2007 in Vienna, Austria, VLDB 2008 in Auckland, New Zealand, VLDB 2009 in Lyon,

France and VLDB 2010 in Singapore.


Although cryptography and security techniques have been around for quite some time,

emerging technologies such as ubiquitous computing and ambient intelligence that exploit

increasingly interconnected networks, mobility and personalization, put new requirements

on security with respect to data management. As data is accessible anytime anywhere,

according to these new concepts, it becomes much easier to get unauthorized data access.

Furthermore, it becomes simpler to collect, store, and search personal information and

endanger people's privacy. Therefore, research in the area of secure data management is

of growing importance, attracting attention of both the data management and security

research communities The interesting problems range from traditional ones such as,

access control (with all variations, like dynamic, context-aware, role-based), database

security (e.g. efficient database encryption schemes, search over encrypted data, etc.),

privacy preserving data mining to controlled sharing of data.

This year, we will continue with tradition to have special sessions. We will organize a

special session on trustworthy cloud computing together with Oxford and Darmstadt

University in the context of the EU FP7 TClouds project (

We also intend to organize an additional special session on trust in digital life with

the partners of this consortium (


The aim of the workshop is to bring together people from the security research community

and data management research community in order to exchange ideas on the secure management

of data. The workshop will provide forum for discussing practical experiences and
theoretical research efforts that can help in solving the critical problems in secure data
management. Authors from both academia and industry are invited to submit papers presenting
novel research on the topics of interest (see below).

Format of the Workshop and Proceedings

The workshop will be organized in conjunction with the VLDB 2011 conference.


Topics of interest include (but are not limited to) the following:

- Secure Data Management

- Database Security

- Data Anonymization/Pseudonymization

- Data Hiding

- Metadata and Security

- XML Security

- Authorization and Access Control

- Data Integrity

- Privacy Preserving Data Mining

- Statistical Database Security

- Control of Data Disclosure

- Secure Stream Processing
- Private Information Retrieval

- Secure Auditing

- Data Retention

- Search on Encrypted Data

- Digital and Enterprise Rights Management

- Multimedia Security and Privacy

- Private Authentication

- Identity Management

- Privacy Enhancing Technologies

- Security and Semantic Web

- Security and Privacy in Ubiquitous Computing

- Security and Privacy of Health Data

- Web Service Security

- Trust Management

- Policy Management

- Applied Cryptography

Format of the workshop and proceedings

The workshop is organized in conjunction with the VLDB conference.

Provisional program:

1. Presentation of papers with discussions

2. Special session on trustworthy cloud computing: Cloud computing enables
outsource of ICT services to leverage scalable shared computing, communication,
and storage infrastructures that are provided by third party enterprises.
Typical categories of cloud computing include Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS),
Platform as a Service (PaaS) and Software as a Service (SaaS). Major benefits
of cloud computing include scalability, cost reduction, data availability,
reliability and resilience. However, moving ICT infrastructure and personal
data to the cloud can pose severe threats to security and privacy. Clouds may
involve additional insider attacks or become a single point of failure.
Consequently, secure data management solutions need to be promoted to address
the emerging security and privacy risks.
Organizers: Ahmad-Reza Sadeghi, Darmstadt University; Imad Abbadi, Oxford University;
Deng Mina, Philips Research

3. Special session on Trust in Digital Life followed by a short panel discussion of
the speakers

Our intention is to publish the proceedings in the Springer-Verlag Lecture Notes on Computer

Science series as it was done for the first seven workshops. Additionally, we

also would like to select the best papers with the intent to publish their extended and

revised versions in a special edition of a journal (as it was done for the SDM 2006&2007

workshop with the Journal of Computer Security).

Paper submission

Authors are invited to submit original, unpublished research papers that are not being

considered for publication in any other forum. Manuscripts should be submitted

electronically as PDF or PS files via email to

Full papers should not exceed fifteen pages in length (formatted using the camera-ready

templates of Springer Lecture Notes in Computer Science).

We also encourage submitting position statement papers describing research work in

progress or lessons learned in practice (max six pages). Submissions must be received

no later than May 1, 2011. Please check the workshop page for further information and

submission instructions:

Duration: 1-day workshop
