Web 2.0 Trust (W2Trust), 
Trondheim, Norway
in conjunction with IFIPTM 2008 <https://mail.ist.psu.edu/exchweb/bin/redir.asp?URL=http://www.ntnu.no/videre/konferanse/IFIPTM08/> 
http://www.sis.uncc.edu/~mshehab/W2Trust/index.html <https://mail.ist.psu.edu/exchweb/bin/redir.asp?URL=http://www.sis.uncc.edu/~mshehab/W2Trust/index.html> 
Web 2.0 has emerged as the adopted suite of technologies by developers, users and business.  The new web 2.0 paradigm provides the technology that enables government, businesses and users to interact and integrate services and data and benefit The Wisdom of the Crowds.  Because of strong collaborative nature of Web 2.0 applications, mechanisms for trust management are crucial for its healthy development.

Trust in Web 2.0 opens several new vistas for researchers and practitioners. In particular, approaches to trust management designed for Web 1.0 need to be revisited.  In Web 1.0 Trust was mostly related to e-commerce and security of the portal.  The main trust issues were related to the website content, and authenticity of the source which posted data. With the advent of the Web 2.0 the issue of trust has shifted from the people or companies that run a site to focus more on the people that populate it. This new technology in fact enables users to interact and collaborate seamlessly.  For example, using social networks users are engaging with each other at a one to one level in several ways, for business, pleasure, for knowledge sharing and so forth.  The predominant issue is now whether one can trust the people on a site, since the content is being generated by anyone and then being rated by anyone.  How to ensure that what other users write is true, authentic and will not misused is an open challenge.  Trust evaluations are however fundamental to help users making the best decisions when sharing resources and data.  Thus, the success of Web 2.0 strongly depends on the development of efficient, adequate and scalable trust models.

During this one-day workshop attendees will discuss and analyze the problems of trust in the Web 2.0 arena, and the potential consequences in terms of privacy breaches and security vulnerabilities. The dominant focus of the workshop will be on presentation of refereed papers both long and short. We also plan on including a keynote and a panel discussion. 

We solicit papers, case studies, and participation from researchers, systems architects, vendor engineers, and users. Suggested topics include but are not limited to:

*	Secure Mashup Technologies. 
*	Trust in Data Aggregation and Integration. 
*	Trust in Service Oriented Architecture. 
*	Security in Social Networks. 
*	Trust in New Technologies Such as AJAX. 
*	Trust models in Social Networks. 
*	Web Services Security. 
*	Trust in Grid Environments. 

Targeted Audience: 

This workshop is targeted towards scholars and practitioners interested in exploring and discover the emerging Web 2.0 open issues and the important security related challenges arising from the technologies embraced by Web 2.0. We expect a large percentage of the conference participants to be interested in joining discussions and sessions offered during the workshop.
Submission Instructions:

Submissions should be provided electronically, in PDF, for standard US letter-size paper (8.5 x 11 inches).  Paper submissions must not exceed 15 pages (single space, one column format with 1" margins using a 10 pt or larger font) and have no header or footer text (e.g., no page numbers).  Short papers will also be considered.

Proposals for panels should be no longer than five pages and include possible panelists and an indication of which panelists have confirmed participation. 

All submissions should be submitted by email to mshehab at uncc.edu, and to acs20 at psu.edu .  All submissions will be acknowledged. Submissions of papers must not substantially duplicate work that any of the authors have published elsewhere or have submitted in parallel to any other conferences or journals. 

Accepted papers will be published in pre proceedings at the workshop and in the final proceedings shortly after the workshop.
