Call For Papers
Today eBusiness plays a key role in the economy. Since many organizations are suffering from security problems such as computer viruses and security breaches, computer security has become a crucial concern for eBusiness. XML has already established itself in eBusiness applications, and the XML-compliant languages play an important role in almost all eBusiness application systems and middleware.
The ACM Workshop on XML Security will address security problems faced by users who try to develop XML-based applications, Web services, and security middleware for XML. It ranges from specific security features, such as digital signatures and element-wise encryption and access control of XML documents, to XML-based infrastructure, such as Web services and XML databases. Since many security features for XML have already been standardized, experimental evaluations of these standards is one of the important topics covered by this workshop.
The XML Security workshop seeks submissions from academia and industry covering novel research on theoretical and practical aspects of the security required for XML-based systems. We also encourage submissions from standardization communities such as W3C and OASIS, particularly from the technical viewpoint.
Topics of interest include, but are not limited to, the following:
- XML digital signatures
- XML encryption
- XML access control
- XML-based key management
- XML-based messaging
- XML-based security assertions
- XML database security
- Security policy languages for XML
- Architecture of XML security
- Security for Web services
- Experimental studies of above topics

Submitted papers must not substantially overlap papers that have been published or that are simultaneously submitted to a journal or a conference with proceedings. Papers should be at most 15 pages excluding the bibliography and well-marked appendices (using 11-point font and reasonable margins on letter-size paper), and at most 20 pages total. Committee members are not required to read the appendices, and so the paper should be intelligible without them. Papers should have a cover page with the title, authors, abstract and contact information.
To submit a paper, send to firstname.lastname@example.org a plain ASCII text email containing the title and abstract of your paper, the authors' names, email and postal addresses, phone and fax numbers, and identification of the contact author. To the same message, attach your submission (as a MIME attachment) in PDF or portable postscript format. Do NOT send files formatted for word processing packages (e.g., Microsoft Word or WordPerfect files).
Papers must be received by the deadline of August 10, 2002. Notification of acceptance or rejection will be sent to the authors no later than September 30, 2002, and authors will have an opportunity to revise for preproceedings version by October 31, 2002. Authors of accepted papers must guarantee that their paper will be presented at the workshop. During the workshop preproceedings will be made available. It is planned to publish selected revised full papers in an edited collection after the workshop. Final versions are not due until after the workshop, giving the authors the opportunity to revise their papers based on discussions during the meeting.
