POLICY 2011 Final CFP

Wishart, Ryan
(apologies if you receive multiple copies of this call)


IEEE International Symposium on
6-8 June 2011
Pisa, Italy



We are delighted to announce:

* three distinguished invited speakers:

- Jeffrey Kephart, IBM T.J. Watson Research Centre.

- Alexander Pretschner, Karlsruhe Institute of Technology

- Pierangela Samarati, Universita' degli Studi di Milano

* A panel discussion on the second day led by Morris Sloman
from Imperial College London.

* Some student grants will be available to encourage attendance by PhD and
masters students.


The symposium brings together researchers and

practitioners working on policy-based systems

across a wide range of application domains

including policy-based networking, privacy, trust

and security management, autonomic computing,

pervasive systems and enterprise systems.

POLICY 2011 is the 12th in a series of successful events,

which have provided a forum for discussion and

collaboration between researchers, developers and

users of policy-based systems.



POLICY 2011 invites unpublished novel

contributions on all aspects of policy-based

systems. This year we specifically encourage contributions

on policy-based techniques in support of Cloud computing

and Enterprise Service Oriented applications as well as

the use of reasoning, verification and learning techniques

in policy-based systems.

Papers must describe original work and

must not have been accepted or submitted for

publication elsewhere. Submitted papers will be

evaluated for technical contribution, originality,

and significance. Topics of interest include, but

are not limited to the following:

Privacy and Security:

 - Frameworks and tools for managing the privacy

   and the security policy life-cycle

 - Architectures for deployment and enforcement of

   privacy and security policies

 - Refinement of high-level privacy/security requirements

   into policies

 - Detection and resolution of inconsistencies in privacy

   and security policies

 - Usability of policy-based privacy and security

   management tools

Policy Models and Languages:

 - Abstract models and languages for policy specification

 - Semantic Web rule languages for policy reasoning

 - Policy standards, their extensions and refinements

 - Formal semantics of policies

 - NLP and policy specification

 - Methodologies and tools for specifying, analyzing,

   refining, and evaluating policies

 - Detection and resolution of policy conflicts

 - Policy negotiation models and techniques

 - Representation of belief, trust, and risk and their

   use in conjunction with policy-based systems

 - Systems and tools for the management of policies

 - Policy visualization

 - Usability of policy languages and representations

Policy Applications:

 - Federated policy management in heterogeneous

   organisational contexts and control domains

 - Case studies of applying policy-based management in

   different application domains

 - Application of policies for resource allocation,

   autonomic computing, systems management,

   QoS adaptation and security

 - Policy-based systems for cloud computing, and service

   oriented applications

 - Policy-based networking, including collaborative security,

   pervasive computing, and mobile systems

 - Policy-based Semantic Web applications

 - Business rules and organizational modelling

 - Policy Metrics: evaluation of the effectiveness of policies

 - Policy applications in on-demand, utility based computing

 - Resource virtualization and policy-based collaboration

 - Cross-domain policy coordination and negotiation

 - Scalability of policy-based management

 - Architectures of policy-based management systems

 - Policy Learning and automated policy generation

System demonstration submissions will be evaluated

on the basis of their technical merit and novelty.

Of particular interest are systems that illustrate

research contributions and innovative applications

of policy-based technologies. Those interested in

demonstrating a system/application should submit a

description following the instructions in the

submission information section. Commercial

products are eligible, but sales and marketing

activities are not appropriate.



Paper Registration deadline:                    8  December 2010

Paper submission deadline:                    15 December 2010

Symposium dates:                                                   6-8 June 2011



Papers under review elsewhere must NOT be

submitted to Policy 2011. Proceedings from the

Symposium will be published by IEEE Computer

Society; submissions must be in IEEE Proceedings

2-Column format (http://ieeeformats.notlong.com),

and must satisfy the following page limits:

Policy 2011 invites contributions in the form of either:

 - Technical papers (max. length 8 pages).

 - Short position papers describing preliminary experimental

   results, experiences with deployed policy systems, new applications

   or new policy research challenges (max. length 4 pages)

 - System demonstration descriptions illustrating innovative

   applications of policy-based technologies

   (max length 2 pages, not including references).

We particularly encourage contributions from industry

in the form of long or short papers.

Technical papers, short papers and demonstration descriptions should be
submitted via EasyChair ( http://www.easychair.org/conferences/?conf=policy2011 )
