SACMAT 2009 : 14th ACM Symposium on Access Control Models and Technologies
Conference Series : Symposium on Access Control Models and Technologies
Call For Papers
Papers offering novel research contributions in all aspects of access control are solicited for submission to the ACM Symposium on Access Control Models and Technologies (SACMAT). SACMAT 2009 is the fourteenth of a successful series of symposiums that continue the tradition, first established by the ACM Workshop on Role-Based Access Control, of being the premier forum for presentation of research results and experience reports on leading edge issues of access control, including models, systems, applications, and theory. The missions of the symposium are to share novel access control solutions that fulfill the needs of heterogeneous applications and environments and to identify new directions for future research and development. SACMAT gives researchers and practitioners a unique opportunity to share their perspectives with others interested in the various aspects of access control.
Topic of Interest
o Access control models and extensions
o Access control requirements
o Access control design methodology
o Access control mechanisms, systems, and tools
o Access control in distributed and mobile systems
o Access control for innovative applications
o Administration of access control policies
o Identity management
o Policy/Role Engineering
o Safety analysis and enforcement
o Standards for access control
o Trust management
o Trust models
o Theoretical foundations for access control models
o Usage control
Accepted papers will be presented at the symposium and published by the ACM in the symposium proceedings. Outstanding papers will be invited for possible publication in a prestigious journal in information assurance area.
Papers must be written in English. We require that the authors use the ACM format for papers, using one of the ACM SIG Proceeding Templates (http://www.acm.org/sigs/pubs/proceed/template.html). The length of the paper in the proceedings format should not exceed ten US letter pages, excluding well-marked appendices. Committee members are not required to read the appendices, so papers must be intelligible without them. Papers are to be submitted electronically as a single PDF file, formatted for 8.5” X 11” paper, and no more than 5MB in size. It is the responsibility of the authors to ensure that their submission will print easily on simple default configurations. Papers should clearly include the identity of the authors and their affiliations (that is, reviewing is not blind). Further submission details will be available on-line.
All submissions MUST reflect original work and MUST adequately document any overlap with previously published or simultaneously submitted papers from any of the authors. Failure to do so will lead to automatic rejection. In particular, simultaneous submission of the same paper to another conference or journal venue is not allowed. If authors have any doubts regarding such overlaps, they should contact the Program Chair before submission.
Panel Proposal Submission
Panel proposals should be no longer than two (2) pages in length, and should include possible panelists, indicating those who have confirmed participation. Proposals can be e-mailed to the Panels Chair, Dr. Konstantin Beznosov (firstname.lastname@example.org).
