Paper submissions:          January 20, 2010 EXTENDED
Final version (pre-proc.):  February, 2010

Final version (post-proc.): March 22, 2010

The Symposium on Trustworthy Global Computing is an international
annual venue dedicated to safe and reliable computation in global
computers. It focuses on providing frameworks, tools, and protocols
for constructing well-behaved applications and on reasoning rigorously
about their behaviour and properties. The related models of
computation incorporate code and data mobility over distributed
networks with highly dynamic topologies and heterogeneous devices.

We solicit papers in all areas of global computing, including (but not
limited to):

* theories, models and algorithms for global computing and service
   oriented computing
* language concepts and abstraction mechanisms
* security through verifiable evidence
* resource usage and information flow policies
* game-theoretic approaches to selfishness
* verification of cryptographic protocols and their use
* trust, access control and security enforcement mechanisms
* sharing information and computation
* efficient communication
* self configuration, adaptation, and dynamic components management
* software principles to support debugging and verification
* test generators, symbolic interpreters, type checkers
* model checkers, theorem provers, static analyzers
* approximation algorithms, impossibility results, and structural
* privacy, reliability and business integrity

Papers can be submitted online through the EASYCHAIR website


Contributions must be in Postscript or PDF and consist of no more than
15 pages in the Springer LNCS style. Additional details and proofs
omitted due to space limitations may be included in a clearly marked
appendix. Submitted papers must describe work unpublished in refereed
venues, and not submitted for publication elsewhere.

We plan to publish Springer LNCS post-proceedings shortly after the
conference, to give the authors the opportunity to take into account
discussions and suggestions at the conference.

Pre-proceedings with the accepted papers will be made available at the

In 2010, the symposium is co-located with the reviews of the following
FP6 GCII projects: AEOLUS - Algorithmic Principles for Building
Efficient Overlay Computers SENSORIA - Software Engineering for
Service-Oriented Overlay Computers

TGC 2008, the fourth Symposium on Trustworthy Global Computing, was
held in Barcelona (Spain), on November 3 - 4, 2008. The symposium was
co-located with the reviews of the FP6 GCII projects AEOLUS, MOBIUS

TGC 2007 was held on November 5-6, 2007 in Sophia-Antipolis, France
and it was followed by the Workshop on the Interplay of Programming
Languages and Cryptography on November 7, 2007. The symposium was
co-located with the reviews of the FP6 GCII projects AEOLUS, MOBIUS

TGC 2006 was held in Lucca (Italy), on November 7 - 9, 2006 and it was
co-located with the reviews of EU FET-IST FP6 Projects AEOLUS, MOBIUS,

The first TGC event took place in Edinburgh on April 7-9, 2005 with
the co-sponsorship of IFIP TC-2, as part of ETAPS 2005. TGC 2005 was
the evolution of the previous Global Computing I Workshops held in
Rovereto in 2003 and 2004 (see e.g. LNCS 2874) and the workshops on
Foundation of Global Computing held as satellite events of ICALP and
Concur (see e.g. ENTCS Vol. 85).
