**************************************************************************

During Trust 2010 conference there will be co-located workshops, each with
a specific focus. The workshops are embedded in the main conference and
offer an in-depth discussion platform. The following workshops will take
place:

  * Workshop on Anonymous Digital Signatures: Mechanisms & Usages
  * Workshop on Security Hardware
  * Workshop on Trust in the Cloud

See for their respective call for papers below.

**************************************************************************
     Workshop on Anonymous Digital Signatures: Mechanisms & Usages
**************************************************************************

Anonymous digital signature is a fundamental cryptographic building block
for providing privacy in the digital world. It can be used for anonymous
authentication of Internet transactions and anonymous attestation of
hardware platforms, with wide applications in trusted computing,
e-commerce, content protection, and identity cards. Several research
activities have focused on designing anonymous digital signature
mechanisms (e.g. group signatures, direct anonymous attestation, and ring
signatures). Different mechanisms have different security requirements
and revocation models. Some of these mechanisms have been standardized
and adopted by the computing industry. The Anonymous Digital Signatures:
Mechanisms & Usages workshop is intended to encourage the development of
new anonymous digital signature schemes and wider industry adoption of
anonymous signatures.

Any topic which addresses the issues of anonymous digital signatures is a
candidate for submission. The organizers are soliciting presentations to
be presented in the workshop. 

Important Dates:
     Submission due:     10th April 2010
     Notification:       28th April 2010
     Workshop:           within conference, 21-23 June 2010
     
Programme Committee
     Jiangtao Li, Intel (co-chair)
     Kazue Sako, NEC (co-chair)
