For eleven years the New Security Paradigms Workshop (NSPW) has provided a stimulating and highly interactive forum for innovative approaches to computer security. The workshop offers a constructive environment for experienced researchers and practitioners as well as newer participants in the field. The result is a unique opportunity to exchange ideas.
NSPW 2003 will take place August 18 - 21 at the Centro Stefano Francini (CSF), the conference center of the Swiss Federal Technical Institute. The CSF is located in scenic Ascona, Switzerland, on Lago Maggiore, a few hours by train from Zurich, Geneva, or Milan.
In order to preserve the small, focused nature of the workshop, participation is limited to authors of accepted papers and conference organizers. NSPW is highly interactive in nature. Authors are encouraged to present ideas that might be considered risky in some other forum. All participants are charged with providing feedback in a constructive manner. The resulting brainstorming environment has proven to be an excellent medium for furthering the development of these ideas. The proceedings, which are published after the workshop, have consistently benefited from the inclusion of workshop feedback.
