Security and Information Privacy.


On April 14-15, 2005, we will hold a DIMACS workshop at Rutgers University, 
NJ, on the topic of Theft in E-Commerce. This will include but not be 
limited to theft of content, of identity, and of service. While theft 
is an old problem, the automated nature of e-commerce introduces new 
opportunities for traditional forms of theft, as well as entirely new 
forms of theft.  The centrality of computation makes these threats a 
part of computer security.  This is an area of research where we are 
seeing a lot of activity, and where we believe there is a great 
potential for valuable research contributions. While our primary 
interest is in defenses against theft, we are also interested in novel 
attacks and real data about attacks, as the defenders need to know what 
to defend against. For more information about the workshop location, 
organization, and the program (once finalized), please see:

We are soliciting contributions in these areas, for both long and short 
presentations (approx 30 minutes vs 10 minutes.) There are no 
proceedings, but we request that presentation material is submitted to 
the organizers at the time of the workshop, allowing it to be posted on 
the DIMACS webpage. In order to propose a talk, please contact one of 
the organizers, Markus Jakobsson ([EMAIL PROTECTED]) or Drew Dean 
([EMAIL PROTECTED]) with a title and a short abstract by February 28,
2005 that allows us to determine whether your proposed talk will fit 
within the scope of the workshop.

Please refer to the information on the webpage above for workshop 
registration, hotel reservation and travel information, and information 
on how to apply for financial support for those in need of this. There 
will be a limited number of scholarships to defray travel costs, with 
priority given to students and speakers who can not receive funding to 

The workshop is sponsored by RSA Security.
