Call for Papers:

Today digital world appears as a multitude of self-organizing entities that interact trough collaboration and negotiations. Examples include web 2.0 applications such as forums, blogs, business digital eco-systems, p2p systems, ad-hoc networks. The lack of centralized authority forces cooperations with unknown and potentially harmful entities, that represents a threats for any adaptive systems working in an open and collaborative environment. Trust appears a key-component for a successful adaptation. By assessing the trustworthiness of potential partners and the environments, as well as risk and threads, adaptation and self-organizations is more reliable and effective. The last decade has seen the emerging of computational systems based on the human notion of trust, in several applications.

Trust can support adaptation in the selections of resources, altering of useless, not pertinent or even malicious entities: it can make adaptation safer, more focused. Trust reduces the complexity of the environment and by selecting only trustworthy entities, adaptation complexity is reduced and made safer.

The workshop focuses on complementary related to trust, such as privacy treatment, security and personalization as necessary component for building a consistent adaptation. This workshop will bring together researchers and experts from different communities (Autonomics systems, Information Systems, Web Services, information Retrieval, HCI) interested in topics like trust, provenance, privacy, security, reputation and spam, in order to address current challenges of their adaptive application to distributed environments such as the Web. The workshop will deliver a state-of-the-art overview, successful research advances in the area as well as guidelines for future research.

  • Trust models for adaptive systems
  • Trust models for self-organizing and autonomics systems
  • Agent-based trust models for cooperation
  • Privacy and Security in self-organizing and adaptive systems
  • Human and social factors involved in trust and adaptation
  • Applications of trust and security on adaptive systems, with a focus on web-based applications, social networks, social search
  • Trust models for self-organizing systems of information (wikis, forums, blogs.)
  • Trust and personalisation for enabling adaptation
  • Models for learning trust and the evolution of trust
  • Decentralised trust models
  • Case studies
  • Theoretical trust models for self-adaptation

Poster Forum

Posters are welcome. Please submit the contributions following the instructions for the regular submissions using the "Submit a Paper" button and selecting the track/workshop preference as "POSTER : Poster Forum".  Submissions are expected to be 6-8 slide deck. Posters will not be published in the Proceedings. One poster with all the slides together should be used for discussions. Presenters will be allocated a space where they can display the slides and discuss in an informal manner. The poster slide decks will be posted on the IARIA site.

For more details, see the Poster Forum explanation page.

Work in Progress

Work-in-progress contributions are welcome. Please submit the contributions following the instructions for the regular submissions using the "Submit a Paper" button and selecting the track/workshop preference as "WIP: Work in Progress".  Authors should submit a four-page (maximum) text manuscript in IEEE double-column format including the authors' names, affiliations, email contacts. Contributors must follow the conference deadlines, describing early research and novel skeleton ideas in the areas of the conference topics. The work will be published in the conference proceedings.

For more details, see the Work in Progress explanation page

Technical marketing/business/positioning presentations

The conference initiates a series of business, technical marketing, and positioning presentations on the same topics. Speakers must submit a 10-12 slide deck presentations with substantial notes accompanying the slides, in the .ppt format (.pdf-ed). The slide deck will not be published in the conference’s CD Proceedings. Presentations' slide decks will be posted on the IARIA's site. Please send your presentations to llongo@cs.tcd.ie or dondiop@cs.tcd.ie

Tutorials

Tutorials provide overviews of current high interest topics. Proposals should be for three hour tutorials. Proposals must contain the title, the summary of the content, and the biography of the presenter(s). The tutorials' slide decks will be posted on the IARIA's site. Please send your proposals to petre@iaria.org

Panel proposals

The organizers encourage scientists and industry leaders to organize dedicated panels dealing with controversial and challenging topics and paradigms. Panel moderators are asked to identify their guests and manage that their appropriate talk supports timely reach our deadlines. Moderators must specifically submit an official proposal, indicating their background, panelist names, their affiliation, the topic of the panel, as well as short biographies. The panel's slide deck will be posted on the IARIA's site.
