INTRUST 2011 : The Third International Conference on Trusted Systems
Conference Series : International Conference on Trusted Systems
Call For Papers
Building on the success of INTRUST 2009 and INTRUST 2010 (both were held in Beijing, P. R. China), this conference focuses on the theory, technologies and applications of trusted systems. It is devoted to all aspects of trusted computing systems, including trusted modules, platforms, networks, services and applications, from their fundamental features and functionalities to design principles, architecture and implementation technologies. The goal of the conference is to bring academic and industrial researchers, designers, and implementers together with end-users of trusted systems, in order to foster the exchange of ideas in this challenging and fruitful area. The conference will be hosted by the Beijing Institute of Technology and ONETS.
INTRUST 2011 solicits original papers on any aspect of the theory, advanced development and applications of trusted computing, trustworthy systems and general trust issues in modern computing systems. The conference will have an academic track and an industrial track. This call for papers is for contributions to both of the tracks. Submissions to the academic track should emphasize theoretical and practical research contributions to general trusted system technologies, while submissions to the industrial track may focus on experiences in the implementation and deployment of real-world systems.
Instructions for authors
Submissions must not substantially duplicate work that any of the authors has published elsewhere or has submitted in parallel to any journal or other conference or workshop that has proceedings. Submissions will take place entirely via a web system. All submissions will be blind-reviewed. Papers must be anonymous, with no author names, affiliations, acknowledgements, or obvious references. A submitted paper should begin with a title, a short abstract, and a list of keywords.
As was the vase for INTRUST 2009 and 2010, the proceedings of INTRUST 2011 will, as a plan, be published in the Springer-Verlag Lecture Notes in Computer Science series and will be available after the conference. Clear instructions for the preparation of a final proceedings version will be sent to the authors of accepted papers. We strongly recommend that authors submit their papers in the standard LNCS format (see http://www.springer.com/computer/lncs?SGWID=0-164-0-0-0 for the details) with length at most 15 pages (excluding bibliography and appendices). Committee members are not required to review more than that, so the paper should be intelligible and self-contained within this length. Submissions not meeting these guidelines risk rejection without consideration of their merits.
Authors of accepted papers must guarantee that their paper will be presented at the conference. Authors are asked to clearly indicate whether their submissions are for the academic track or the industrial track in the title.
Best paper award
The conference has a best paper award sponsored by Singapore Management University for US$1000; all papers are eligible for this award.
