                            Trust 2010
    3rd International Conference on Trust and Trustworthy Computing
                     - Socio-economic Strand -

                  June 21-23, 2010, Berlin, Germany


Building on the success of Trust 2009 (held at Oxford, UK) and
Trust 2008 (Villach, Austria), this conference focuses on trusted
and trustworthy computing, both from the technical and socio-economic
perspectives. The conference itself will have two main strands, one
devoted to technical aspects and one devoted to the socio-economic
aspects of trusted computing. This call for papers is for contributions
to the socio-economic strand - a separate call is issued for
contributions to the technical strand of the conference.

The conference solicits original papers on any social and economic
aspect of the design, application, and usage of trusted computing.
Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:

    * Usability and user perceptions of trustworthy systems and risks
    * Effects of trustworthy systems upon user, corporate, and
      governmental behavior
    * The adequacy of guarantees provided by trustworthy systems for
      systems critically dependent upon trust, such as elections and
      government oversight
    * The impact of trustworthy systems upon digital forensics, police
      investigations and court proceedings
    * Economic drivers for trustworthy systems
    * Group and organizational behavior within trustworthy systems
    * The impact of trustworthy systems upon user autonomy, social
      capital, and power relationships
    * Cross-cultural definitions of trustworthiness
    * Can systems be truly "trustworthy" without any capacity for moral
    * Trustworthy systems and precursors of trust such as honesty,
      benevolence, value similarity, or competence
    * Trustworthiness, regret and forgiveness
    * Trustworthy systems as enhancements or constraints on government
    * The role of independence from vested interests as a driver of
    * Game theoretical approaches to modeling or designing trustworthy
    * Experimental economics studies of trustworthiness
    * The interplay between privacy, privacy enhancing technologies and
    * Regulatory vs peer-produced trustworthiness, including reputation
    * Global governance initiatives to manage trust
    * Critiques of trustworthy systems

Notes in Computer Science series, and to have them available at the
