TrustCom 2009

The 2009 IEEE/IFIP International Symposium on Trusted Computing and Communications

Vancouver, Canada, August 29-31, 2009


Call for Participation

With the rapid development and the increasing complexity of computer and communications systems and networks, traditional security technologies and measures can not meet the demand for integrated and dynamic security solutions. As a challenging and innovative research field, trusted computing and communications target computer and communications systems and networks that are available, secure, reliable, controllable, dependable, and so on. In a word, they must be trustworthy. If we view the traditional security as identity trust, the broader field of trusted computing and communications also includes behavior trust of systems and networks. In fact, trusted computing and communications have become essential components of various distributed services, applications, and systems, including self-organizing networks, social networks, semantic webs, e-commence, and e-government.


Please join us in August 2009 at Vancouver, Canada. Vancouver is the largest city in the province of British Columbia . It's surrounded by water on three sides and is nestled alongside the Coast Mountain Range. Vancouver is home to spectacular natural scenery and a bustling metropolitan core, and boasts one of the mildest climates in Canada. The 2009 IEEE/IFIP International Symposium on Trusted Computing and Communications (TrustCom 2009), to be held in conjunction with the 2009 IEEE/IFIP International Conference on Embedded and Ubiquitous Computing (EUC-09), aims at bringing together researchers and practitioners in the world working on trusted computing with regard to security, safety, privacy, reliability, dependability, survivability, availability, and fault tolerance aspects of computer systems and networks, and providing a forum for them to present and discuss emerging ideas and trends in this highly challenging research field.
