For twelve 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 2004 will take place September 20 - 23 at the
White Point Beach Resort
located on the southern shore of beautiful Nova Scotia. The resort can
be reached by air via Halifax or by ferry from Portland, Maine.
In order to preserve the small, focused nature of the workshop,
participation is limited to authors of accepted papers and conference
NSPW is unique in format and highly interactive in nature. Each paper is
typically the focus of 45 to 60 minutes of presentation and discussion.
Authors are encouraged to present ideas that might be considered risky
in some other forum, and all participants are charged with providing
feedback in a constructive manner. The resulting intensive brainstorming
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.
