Past Workshops

The 2000 New Security Paradigms Workshop will take place from September 19 - 21, 2000 at The Bayview Hotel in Ballycotton County, Cork, Ireland. In order to preserve the small, intimate nature of the workshop, participation is limited to authors of accepted papers and conference organizers. Because these are new paradigms, we cannot predict what subjects will be covered. Any paper that presents a significant shift in thinking about difficult security issues or builds on a previous shift will be welcomed.

The New Security Paradigms Workshop 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, published after the workshop, have consistently benefited from the inclusion of workshop feedback.

To participate, please submit your paper, justification, and attendance statement, preferably via e-mail, to both Program Chairs --  Cristina Serban ( and Brenda Timmerman ( -- by Friday, March 31, 2000.  Further details on the required format of submissions follow.

  1. Your Paper

  2. You should submit either a research paper, a 5 - 10 page position paper, or a discussion topic proposal. Submissions of any type must not have been published elsewhere. Discussion topic proposals should include an in-depth description of the topic to be discussed, a convincing argument that the topic will lead to a lively discussion, and any other supporting materials.

    Softcopy submissions should be in Postscript or ASCII format. Papers may be submitted in hardcopy. To submit hardcopy, please mail 5 (five) copies to Program co-chair Cristina Serban. Please allow adequate time for delivery.

  3. Justification

  4. You should describe, in one page or less, why your paper is appropriate for the New Security Paradigms Workshop. A good justification will describe the new paradigm being proposed, explain how it is a departure from existing theory or practice, and identify those aspects of the status quo it challenges or rejects.
  5. Attendance Statement

  6. You should state how many authors wish to attend the workshop. Accepted papers require the attendance of at least one author. In order to ensure that all papers receive equally strong feedback, all attendees are expected to stay for the entire duration of the workshop.
The program committee will referee the papers and notify the authors of acceptance status by June 9, 2000. We expect to be able to offer a limited number of scholarships. More information will be provided here as it becomes available.
