The First International Conference on Trust Management
This interesting-looking conference has recently showed up on my radar. It will take place in Heraklion, Crete, Greece, 28-30 May 2003. The proceedings will be published by the Lecture Notes in Computer Science (LNCS) series of Springer Verlag. According to the call for papers, the conference aims:
- To facilitate the cross-disciplinary investigation of fundamental issues underpinning computational trust models by bringing together expertise from technology oriented sciences, law, philosophy and social sciences.
- To facilitate the emergence of widely acceptable trust management processes for dynamic open systems and applications.
- To facilitate the development of new paradigms in the area of dynamic open systems which effectively utilise computational trust models.
- To help the incorporation of trust management elements in existing standards
Papers, short papers, panel, special session and tutorial proposals are solicited in the following list of areas which is indicative and not exhaustive:
- The ethics, sociology and psychology of trust
- Cyberspace freedom vs. safeguarding consumer confidence and trusting relations.
- Legal issues underpinning the management of trust
- Trust in Contract, service level agreement negotiation and management, organizational networks
- Models and semantics of trust
- Trust specification, analysis and reasoning
- Trust based on recommendation and reputation
- Design of trust based architectures and decision-making mechanisms for e-community and e-service interactions
- Monitoring trust
- Relationship between trust and risk
- Relationship between trust and security
There's also going to be an interdisciplinary workshop on reputation systems at MIT, but I think the deadline for participation is very near.
