New emerging technologies that use information on the social characteristics of their participants raise entirely new privacy concerns and require new reflections on security problems such as trust establishment, cooperation enforcement or key management. The aim of this workshop is to encompass research advances in all areas of security, trust and privacy in pervasive communication systems, integrating the social structure of the network as well. ============================= Topics of Interest ============================= - new aspects of trust - privacy concerns - availability and resilience - community based secure communication - data confidentiality, data integrity - anonymity, pseudonymity - key management - secure bootstrapping - security issues in forwarding, routing - security aspects regarding cooperation - new reputation systems - new attack paradigms - new requirements for software security - malware The key note: “Threats to the Social Web”, will be given by Ryan McGeehan  of facebook Inc. It deals with real world threats against the social web and highlights the perspective of the provider of one of the largest online social networks of today. ============================= Important Dates ============================= Submission deadline: October 18, 2009 Notification date: December 21, 2010 Camera ready submission: January 29, 2010 ============================= Submission instructions ============================= Submitted papers must be unpublished and not considered elsewhere for publication.
