InTrust 2012: 4th International Conference on Trusted Systems

Call for Papers

A text version of this call for papers is available here.


Building on the success of INTRUST 2009, 2010 and 2011 (all of which were held in Beijing), this conference focuses on the theory, technologies and applications of trusted systems. It is devoted to all aspects of trusted computing systems, including trusted modules, platforms, networks, services and applications, from their fundamental features and functionalities to design principles, architecture and implementation technologies. The goal of the conference is to bring academic and industrial researchers, designers, and implementers together with end-users of trusted systems, in order to foster the exchange of ideas in this challenging and fruitful area.

InTrust 2012, the 4th International Conference on Trusted Systems, will take place between December 17th and 19th 2012. It will be hosted by the Information Security Group at Royal Holloway, University of London. InTrust 2012 solicits original papers on any aspect of the theory, advanced development and applications of trusted computing, trustworthy systems and general trust issues in modern computing systems.

Instructions for authors

Submissions must not substantially duplicate work that any of the authors have published elsewhere or have submitted in parallel to any journal or other conference or workshop that has proceedings. Submissions will take place entirely via a web system. All submissions will be blind-reviewed. Papers must be anonymous, with no author names, affiliations, acknowledgements, or obvious references. A submitted paper should begin with a title, a short abstract, and a list of keywords.

As was the case for INTRUST 2009 (LNCS 6163), INTRUST 2010 (LNCS 6802) and INTRUST 2011 (LNCS 7222, to appear), the proceedings of INTRUST 2012 will be published in the Springer-Verlag Lecture Notes in Computer Science series. Unlike previous editions of this conference, it is intended that the proceedings will be available at the conference. Papers published in the LNCS series are indexed by both EI and ISTP.

Clear instructions for the preparation of a final proceedings version will be sent to the authors of accepted papers. Authors are strongly recommended to submit their papers in the standard LNCS format, with length at most 15 pages (excluding bibliography and appendices). Committee members are not required to review more pages than this, so papers should be intelligible within this length. Submissions not meeting these guidelines risk rejection without consideration of their merits. Authors of accepted papers must guarantee that their paper will be presented at the conference.

Papers must be submitted in pdf format using the EasyChair conference management system.
