************************* CALL FOR PAPERS ***********************



                          A WWW2005 Workshop
               14th International World Wide Web Conference
                         Tuesday 10 May 2005
                             Chiba, Japan

In order to realize the full potential of the World Wide Web as an open,
dynamic, and distributed ``universe of network-accessible information'',
it is important for web entities to behave appropriately. Policy
management provides the openness, flexibility, and autonomy required to
regulate this environment as entities can reason over their own policies
and the policies of other entities to decide how to behave. Using policies
allows entities to specify expected behavior of entities they interact
with. Entities can also adapt to increasingly complex requirements without
the need for substantial changes to the structure or implementation
through the use of policies.

Policy management includes policy specification, deployment, reasoning
over policies, updating and maintaining policies, and enforcement. We
propose that policy management is required for the web for (i)
constraining different kinds of behavior including security, privacy,
conversation, and collaboration, (ii) configuration management, (iii)
describing business processes, and (iv) establishing trust and reputation.


    * Policy specification, implementation, and enforcement
    * Dynamic merging of policies
    * Static and dynamic conflict resolution
    * Dynamic policy modification
    * Formal models for policy verification
    * Relationship of trust and reputation to policies
    * Business contracts and rules
    * Case studies for policy management
    * Applicability of XML, RDF and OWL for policy specification
    * Obligation management
    * Policies for access control, privacy, and collaboration
    * Decidability and tractability issues
    * Digital Rights Management policies
    * Policy engineering
    * Enhancing P3P with policies
    * User-oriented policy authoring systems

The PM4W workshop will be held as part of WWW2005 in Chiba, Japan at
Nippon Convention Center (or better known as Makuhari Messe). Makuhari
Messe is conveniently located halfway between central Tokyo and the
New Tokyo International Airport (Narita Airport). From the airport, it can
be reached by bus or car in 30 minutes. Tokyo station is also only 30
minutes away by train (the JR Keiyo Line).

We seek two kinds of papers: research papers that report on the results of
original research and short papers that articulate a position, describe an
application or demonstrate a working language or system. Both research
papers and short papers will be included in the workshop proceedings.
Research papers should describe original research not published elsewhere
and should not exceed eight pages in length. Short papers are expected to
be four to six pages. Short position papers should provide insight into
the requirements for, or challenges of, developing or applying policies
for web-based information systems. Short application papers should
describe an implemented novel use of policies in a web-based environment.
Short demonstration papers should document a implemented system or
language that uses policies. Each submission should indicate the type of
paper being submitted: research, position, application or demonstration.

Papers should be submitted electronically by the 1 February 2005. See
http://www.cs.umbc.edu/pm4w/submit.html for information on formatting and
submitting your paper.

Papers must me submitted electronically by midnight (US eastern time zone,
i.e., gmt-5) on 1st February, 2005. Notification of the reviewing results
will be made on 15th March, 2005. Final camera-ready versions of accepted
documents must be provided electronically on 15th April, 2005.

PM4W will be a one day workshop consisting of invited talk(s),
presentations of submitted papers, and (probably) a panel as well as time
for discussion.
