Call for Paper TRUST 2012

13 – 15 June 2012

Vienna, Austria


TRUST 2012 is an international conference on the technical and soci-economic aspects of trustworthy infrastructures. It provides an excellent interdisciplinary forum for researchers, practitioners, and decision makers to explore new ideas and discuss experiences in building, designing, using and understanding trustworthy computing systems.

Building on the success of TRUST 2011 (held in Pittsburgh, USA) and TRUST 2010 (held in Berlin, Germany) TRUST 2009 (held in Oxford, UK), this conference focuses on trusted and trustworthy computing, both from the technical and social perspectives. The conference itself has two main strands, one devoted to technical aspects and one devoted to the socio-economic aspects of trusted computing.


Important dates:

Submission due: 22 February 2012, 23:59 UTC

Notification: 25 March 2012

Camera ready: 09 April 2012

Conference: 13-15 June 2012
