Online Social Networks arguably are the most accepted service on the
Web, today. Facebook alone has a claimed base of over 950 millons of
users worldwide, google+ reached the mark of 10 million users in only 16
days after going public, and mobile social networks, like foursquare and
Instagram, consistently gain momentum.
So far, Online Social Networks (OSN) are self-contained, walled garden
services, with a centralized omniscient provider that collects and
shares PII selectively with customers and affiliates. The amount of
information gathered about the users in the case of Web-based SNS has
already been extensive -- but it even consists of detailed location
traces and preference information, given by the frequency of "check-ins"
at visited establishments and comments annotated to them, in this new
paradigm. The problems of security and privacy in such a surveiled,
pervasive communication environments hence are becoming more and more
Moreover, observing the current trends, new communication systems are
becoming even more dynamic, open and heterogeneous, enriched with social
information. 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 may be leveraged for
providing extended information on contacts and their relations based on
the containing online identities and the information they share. The
emerging pervasive communication systems, which, with high probability
will more often than today face lack of connectivity to central
services, however, 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: raising entirely new privacy
concerns they require new reflections on security problems such as trust
establishment, cooperation enforcement or key management. The
information leveraged, spanning social relations and personal opinions,
consists of highly sensitive data at the same time, a fact that leads to
a high risk of misuse or abuse.

The aim of SESOC 2013 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

Important Dates

Submission deadline: October 30, 2012
Notification date: December 21, 2012
Camera ready submission: January 27, 2013
Workshop date: March 18, 2013

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. The submission web site will be posted soon.

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 2013
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 previous years, be considered for possible *fast*
*track publication* in *Elsevier's Computer Communications Journal*.
