Proposals are solicited for workshops to be held in conjunction with ACM CCS 2010. Each workshop provides a forum to address a specific topic at the forefront of security research. A workshop must be full day in length.Proceedings of all workshops will be available (on a CD) to the workshop attendees. Each workshop will also offer on-line proceedings through ACM Digital Library, with a separate ISBN.

Workshop Proposal Submission

For new workshops, proposals should include:

Proposal Evaluation Criteria

* The workshop is within scope of computer and communications security and concerns a coherent and worthwhile technical topic.
* Its novelty with respect to other forums, especially with respect to other CCS workshops.
* Its likely impact on the target community, including likely high participation.
* One of the best ways to show likely interest is to have a strong set of researchers who have agreed to serve on the PC.

Important Dates
