Call For Papers

SESOC 2012
4th International Workshop on
SECurity and SOCial Networking

March 19th 2012
Lugano, Switzerland
(as part of PerCom 2012)

Online Social Networks arguably are the most accepted service on the
Web, today. Facebook alone has a claimed base of over 750 millons of
users world wide, google+ reached the mark of 10 million users in only
16 days after going public.
So far, Online Social Networks are self-contained, walled garden
services, which see next to no integration among each other at all. Yet,
the history of the Internet has shown that open and integrated services
on the long run prevail.
The future hence will see an open social layer on the web, and
enhancements of several services, which take the users and their
relationships into account. The problems of security and privacy in such
an environment are becoming more and more crucial. New communication
systems are becoming even more dynamic, open and heterogeneous, enriched
with social information. The emerging pervasive communication systems,
which, with high probability will more often than today face lack of
connectivity to central services, cannot rely on any a-priori knowledge,
on any pre-established trust relationship nor on sophisticated
integrated security infrastructures. They therefore are calling for new
and dedicated security and trust mechanisms. Moreover, observing the
current trends, future pervasive communication systems aim at supporting
social and collaborative communications: the evolving topologies are
expected to resemble the actual social networks of the communicating
users and information on their characteristics can be a powerful aid for
any network operation. Social networking services (facebook, linkedin,
xing, ...) may be leveraged for providing extended information on
contacts and their relations based on the containing online identities
and the information they share. However, this information, spanning
social relations and personal opinions, consist of highly sensitive data
at the same time, a fact that leads to a high risk of misuse or abuse.
New emerging technologies using some information on the social
characteristics of nodes raise entirely new privacy concerns and require
new reflections on security problems such as trust establishment,
cooperation enforcement or key management.

The aim of SESOC 2012 hence is to encompass research advances in all
areas of security, trust and privacy in pervasive communication systems
with a special focus on the social aspects of the services.

Topics of Interest

- all types of emerging privacy concerns
- new aspects of trust
- decentralized social networking services
- social engineering, and phishing in OSN
- availability and resilience
- community based secure communication
- data confidentiality, data integrity
- anonymity, pseudonymity
- new key management approaches
- secure bootstrapping
- security issues in forwarding, routing
- security aspects regarding cooperation
- new approaches to reputation
- new attack paradigms
- new requirements for software security
- malware in and through OSN

Important Dates

Submission deadline: October 30, 2011
Notification date: December 20, 2011
Camera ready submission: January 27, 2012
Workshop date: March 19, 2012

Submission instructions

Submitted papers must be unpublished and not considered elsewhere for
publication. Camera-ready versions of accepted papers will be limited to
6 pages in IEEE 8.5x11 conference format, and formatted in accordance
with the IEEE Computer Society author guidelines. The link for the
templates and further guidelines for preparing and submitting the
manuscript are available on the workshop website. All papers are managed
electronically through EDAS.
Submitted papers will undergo a rigorous and double-blind review process
handled by the Technical Program Committee.
***** Authors' names must not appear in the paper.*****

All accepted papers need to have a full registration to the PerCom
2011 Conference (There is no workshop only registration). Moreover,
no-shows of accepted papers at the workshop will result in those
papers not being included in the IEEE Digital Library.

SESOC is happy to announce a *best paper award*. Papers of special merit
will again, like in the previous years, be considered for possible fast
*track publication* in *Elsevier's Computer Communications Journal*.
