  Call for Papers for Virtual Goods + ODRL 2013 

  Sep 19-20, 2013 in Koblenz, Germany



The workshop invites papers to two approaches to a trusted and adaptive
Web: top-down by policy-guided behavior and bottom-up by self-organized

Policies help to protect and guide business and private activities in
mobile systems and social networks. We invite papers about the
representation of rules, rights and duties, their visualization,
semantic representation, or enforcement in all critical areas of the
real life in the connected world.

Self-organized movements have come up in recent time by user-driven
content as well as by grassroots activities like Liquid Democracy,
WikiLeaks and coordinated actions through social networks. We invite
papers on p2p and m2m architectures, as well as on self-adaptive
communities and their methodology, their experiences and their impact.

On the one hand the workshop addresses legal, ethical, and secure
business and private activities in mobile systems and social networks.
Rights include ownership rights and copyright (as usual with virtual
goods). Security includes privacy, fairness, confidentiality, integrity,
and availability. The specific policy view addresses policies as a way
to describe behavior. It also addresses the development of languages to
specify policies as artifacts (ODRL et al.). It addresses the challenges
to present policies, to modify policies, to use policies for automated
behavior, and to trust policies.

On the other hand, the workshop addresses new ways of cultural
cooperation. The modern Web allows for safe bottom-up activities as a
way to self-organization and self-adaptation. The balance of a
self-organized bottom-up way of cooperation with a legal, ethical and
safe culture is a specific challenge of the workshop. Moreover, we
invite especially for a debate about a top-down approach by policies
versus a bottom-up approach by self-organization.
