Subject: CFP: ACM Workshop on XML Security 2003

The following is the call for papers of ACM workshop on XML security 2003.

Michiharu Kudo
2003 ACM Workshop on XML Security

October 31, 2003
George W. Johnson Center at George Mason University, Fairfax, VA, USA

Held in conjunction with the Tenth ACM Conference on Computer and
Communications Security (CCS-10)

The ACM Workshop on XML Security will address security problems faced
by users who try to develop XML-based applications, Web services, and
security middleware for XML. XML is now used for both a messaging format
to connect services and a data representation format for data storage, and
this workshop addresses both aspects from the perspective of security.

Our scope ranges from specific security features, such as digital
and element-wise encryption and access control of XML documents, to the
XML-based infrastructure, such as Web services security and XML databases.
This year, the workshop also welcomes advanced programming techniques
for improving the performance in handling XML security features. The
experimental evaluation of standards with regard to XML security is one
of the important topics covered by this workshop.

The XML Security workshop seeks submissions from academia and industry
covering novel research on theoretical and practical aspects of the
required for XML-based systems. We also encourage submissions from
standardization communities such as W3C and OASIS, particularly from the
technical viewpoint

- Topics of interest include, but are not limited to, the following:

XML digital signatures
XML encryption
XML access control
XML-based key management
XML-based messaging
XML-based security assertions
XML database security
Security policy languages for XML
Architecture of XML security
Security for Web services
Programming techniques
Performance measurement and improvements
Experimental studies of above topics

- Important Dates:
Paper submissions due: July 18, 2003
Acceptance notifications: August 31, 2003
Proceedings papers due September 30, 2003
XML Security Workshop: October 31, 2003

- Program Committee:
Blake Dournaee, RSA Security
Blair Dillaway, Microsoft
Carlisle Adams, Entrust
Ernesto Damiani, University of Milan
Hiroshi Maruyama, IBM Research
Jonathan Robie, DataDirect Technologies
Phillip Hallam-Baker, VeriSign
Raghavan N. Srinivas, Sun Microsystems
Selim Aissi, Intel
Shinichi Morishita, University of Tokyo

- Submission instructions:
Submitted papers must not substantially overlap papers that have been
published or that are simultaneously submitted to a journal or a conference
with proceedings. Papers should be at most 15 pages excluding the
bibliography and well-marked appendices (using 11-point font and reasonable
margins on letter-size paper), and at most 20 pages total. Committee
members are not required to read the appendices, and so the paper should
be intelligible without them. Papers should have a cover page with the
authors, abstract and contact information.

To submit a paper, send to kudo@jp.ibm.com a plain ASCII text email
the title and abstract of your paper, the authors' names, email and postal
addresses, phone and fax numbers, and identification of the contact author.
To the same message, attach your submission (as a MIME attachment) in
PDF or portable postscript format. Do NOT send files formatted for word
processing packages (e.g., Microsoft Word or WordPerfect files).

Papers must be received by the deadline of July 18, 2003. Notification of
acceptance or rejection will be sent to the authors no later than August
2003, and authors will have an opportunity to revise for preproceedings
by September 30, 2003. Authors of accepted papers must guarantee that their
paper will be presented at the workshop. During the workshop preproceedings
will be made available. It is planned to publish selected revised full
papers in
an edited collection after the workshop. Final versions are not due until
the workshop, giving the authors the opportunity to revise their papers
on discussions during the meeting.
