CFP: 21st ACM Symposium on Applied Computing (Dijon, France)


The 21st ACM Symposium on Applied Computing

April 23 – 27, 2006, Dijon, France

Track: Trust, Recommendations, Evidence and other Collaboration Know-how

Aims and scope: Computational models of trust and mechanisms based on the human notion of trust have been gaining momentum. One reason for this is that traditional security mechanisms are challenged by open, large scale and decentralised environments. The use of an explicit trust management component goes beyond security though.

The goal of the ACM SAC 2006 TRECK track remains to review the set of applications that benefit from the use of computational trust. Computational trust has been used in reputation systems, risk management, collaborative filtering, social/business networking services, dynamic coalitions and virtual organisations. The TRECK track covers all computational trust applications, especially those used in real world applications.

The topics of interest include, but are not limited to:

  • Recommender and reputation systems
  • Trust-enhanced collaborative applications
  • Tangible guarantees given by formal models of trust and risk
  • Trust metrics assessment and threat analysis
  • Pervasive computational trust and use of context-aware features
  • Trade-off between privacy and trust
  • Trust/risk-based security frameworks
  • Automated collaboration and trust negotiation
  • Trust in peer-to-peer systems
  • Technical trust evaluation, especially at the identity level Impacts of social networks on computational trust
  • Evidence gathering and management
  • Self-organisation and trust
  • Real-world applications, running prototypes and advanced simulations
  • Applicability in large-scale, open and decentralised environments
  • Legal and economic aspects related to the use of trust engines
  • User-studies and user interfaces of computational trust applications

Submission guidelines are posted on the TRECK 2006 website (
