Future pervasive communication systems aim at supporting social and
collaborative communications: the evolving topologies are expected to
resemble the actual social networks of the communicating users and
information on their characteristics can be a powerful aid for any
network operation. 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

- all types of emerging privacy concerns
- new aspects of trust
- decentralized social networking services
- availability and resilience
- community based secure communication
- data confidentiality, data integrity
- anonymity, pseudonymity
- new key management approaches
- secure bootstrapping
- security issues in forwarding, routing
- security aspects regarding cooperation
- new approaches to reputation
- new attack paradigms
- social engineering, and phishing
- new requirements for software security
- malware

with the IEEE Computer Society author guidelines. The link for the
templates and further guidelines for preparing and submitting the
manuscript are available on the workshop website. All papers are managed
electronically through EDAS.
Submitted papers will undergo a rigorous and double-blind review process
handled by the Technical Program Committee.
***** Authors' names must not appear in the paper.*****
