            IEEE Computer Society Technical Committee on Security and
Privacy  Workshops

 ******************************* CALL FOR WORKSHOP PROPOSALS
Since 1980, the IEEE Symposium on Security and Privacy (SP) has been
the premier forum for the presentation of developments in computer
security and electronic privacy, and for bringing together researchers
and practitioners in the field.

In order to further expand the opportunities for scientific exchanges,
we created a new venue within the IEEE CS Technical Committee on
Security and Privacy called Security and Privacy Workshops (SPW). The
typical purpose of the workshops  is to cover a specific aspect of
security and privacy in more detail, making it easy for the
participants to attend IEEE SP and a specialized workshop at IEEE SPW
with just one trip.

                               INSTRUCTIONS FOR WORKSHOP SUBMISSIONS
Workshop submissions is by EasyChair. Please direct questions to
spw-chair at ieee-security.org
Submissions due: September 7, 2012
Acceptance decision: September 15, 2012
Submissions via EasyChair
There will be some interaction in deciding upon and setting up
workshops, but the initial proposal should already contain the
following information:
Contact information of the workshop organizer.
Date (Thursday or Friday).

Technical proposal (1 to 2 pages): Topics to be addressed, importance
of these topics, fit for the S&P audience.
Publication policy: with or without official proceedings; potential
publication via web, technical report, or electronic media. Note that
IEEE is explicitly not responsible for the publication of proceedings;
nor are workshops required to use IEEE.
Expected number of participants and other local meeting issues, such
as any special requirements/equipment for the meeting room.
Biographies of workshop organizer(s), including workshop organization
experience; particularly SPW organization.
Program committee: who has committed; who has been invited; who will be invited.
Preliminary call for papers/posters/contributions.
Commitment to use EasyChair for organization or reason for choosing otherwise.

All workshops associated with IEEE SPW will be under the financial and
legal responsibility of the IEEE Computer Society. This has great
advantages for organizers, e.g., with respect to risk coverage and
insurance, but also brings some requirements. The SPW organizing
committee can assist you with the following: meeting rooms at the
conference hotel, collection of advanced workshop registration fees,
interaction with the IEEE, and linking to the workshop web pages from
the main SPW web pages. The intellectual content of the workshop and
ensuring availability of camera-ready copies as appropriate is the
sole  responsibility of the workshop organizers. If you proposal is
selected, we will send you a more detailed list of the
responsibilities, meeting room options, etc., and would work jointly
to ensure up a successful workshop.
