New Security Paradigms Workshop '98

A workshop sponsored by ACM

22 - 25 September 1998


Boar's Head Inn near "historic" Charlottesville, Virginia


Paradigm shifts disrupt the status quo, destroy outdated ideas and open the way to new possibilities. This workshop explores deficiencies of current computer security paradigms and examines radical new models that address those deficiencies. Previous years' workshops have identified problematic aspects of traditional security paradigms and explored a variety of possible alternatives. Participants have discussed alternative models for access control, intrusion detection, new definitions of security, privacy and trust, biological and economic models of security and a wide variety of other topics. The 1998 workshop will strike a balance between building on the foundations laid in past years and exploring new directions.

The workshop will offer a creative and constructive environment for approximately 25 participants. It will be held at the Boar's Head Inn in the vicinity of "historic" Charlottesville, Virginia.

Because of the workshop format, the organizers urge submitters to arrange to be present for entire three day program. The author's ability to attend for the duration of the workshop will be considered when evaluating submissions for acceptance.

Dress is casual. The tone of the workshop is exploratory rather than critical. The refereed papers will be published in a workshop proceedings.
