************************* CALL FOR PARTICIPATION ***********************

                 POLICY MANAGEMENT FOR THE WEB (PM4W)

                    http://www.cs.umbc.edu/pm4w/

                          A WWW2005 Workshop
               14th International World Wide Web Conference
                         Tuesday 10 May 2005
                             Chiba, Japan


In order to realize the full potential of the World Wide Web as an open,
dynamic, and distributed ``universe of network-accessible information'',
it is important for web entities to behave appropriately. Policy
management provides the openness, flexibility, and autonomy required to
regulate this environment as entities can reason over their own policies
and the policies of other entities to decide how to behave. Using policies
allows entities to specify expected behavior of entities they interact
with. Entities can also adapt to increasingly complex requirements without
the need for substantial changes to the structure or implementation
through the use of policies.

Policy management includes policy specification, deployment, reasoning
over policies, updating and maintaining policies, and enforcement. We
propose that policy management is required for the web for (i)
constraining different kinds of behavior including security, privacy,
conversation, and collaboration, (ii) configuration management, (iii)
describing business processes, and (iv) establishing trust and reputation.


TOPICS OF INTEREST INCLUDE :

    * Policy specification, implementation, and enforcement
    * Dynamic merging of policies
    * Static and dynamic conflict resolution
    * Dynamic policy modification
    * Formal models for policy verification
    * Relationship of trust and reputation to policies
    * Business contracts and rules
    * Case studies for policy management
    * Applicability of XML, RDF and OWL for policy specification
    * Obligation management
    * Policies for access control, privacy, and collaboration
    * Decidability and tractability issues
    * Digital Rights Management policies
    * Policy engineering
    * Enhancing P3P with policies
    * User-oriented policy authoring systems


VENUE
The PM4W workshop will be held as part of WWW2005 in Chiba, Japan at
Nippon Convention Center (or better known as Makuhari Messe). It
will be held in the conference center, room 205.
