Workshop Call for Papers
W2SP 2009: Web 2.0 Security and Privacy 2009
Thursday, May 21
The Claremont Resort, Oakland, California 

Previous W2SP Workshops: 2008, 2007

The goal of this one day workshop is to bring together researchers and 
practitioners from academia and industry to focus on understanding Web 
security and privacy issues, and establishing new collaborations in 
Web 2.0 is about connecting people and amplifying the power of working 
together. Enabled by a wave of new technology, these social and 
interactions rely on composition of content and services from multiple 
sources, commonly called mash-ups, leading to systems with complex 
boundaries. This trend is likely to continue because individuals and 
businesses desire the efficiency and simplicity these technologies 
Together with their virtues, these technologies raise issues about 
management of identities, reputation, privacy, anonymity, transient 
long term relationships, and composition of function and content, both

The scope of W2SP 2009 includes, but is not limited to:
Trustworthy cloud-based services
Privacy and reputation in social networks
Usable security and privacy
Security for the mobile web
Identity management and psuedonymity
Advertisement and affiliate fraud
Provenance and governance
Security and privacy as a service
Web services/feeds/mashups
Security and privacy policies for composible content
Next-generation browser technology
Potential workshop participants should submit a paper on topics 
to Web 2.0 security and privacy issues. We are seeking both short 
papers (2–4 pages) and refereed papers (a maximum of 8 pages). Papers 
longer than 8 pages may be automatically rejected by the chair or 
committee. From the submissions, the program committee will strive to 
balance participation between academia and industry and across topics. 
Selected papers will appear on the workshop web site.
