IFIP TM-Symposium: Industry meets Academia

22nd - 23rd of March 2012, Potsdam, Germany

As part of a series of conferences held by the IFIP working group (11.11) on Trust Management and events hosted by Hasso Plattner Institute, we are organizing a symposium that brings industry to meet academia. The aim is to bring both communities together to establish connections, discuss research, and to present problems in the industry that may have solutions in the academic world.   Trust Management includes topics such as:

- semantics and models for security and trust
- trust management architectures and mechanisms
- policy-based approach to trust management
- reputation and recommendation systems
- identity management 
- privacy and trust
- trust in e-commerce, e-service, e-government
- trust in Semantic Web
- social and legal aspect of trust

News: Talks are available online now on our tele-Task System
