The 8th International Workshop on Formal Aspects of Security & Trust (FAST2011) Leuven, Belgium. September 15-16, 2011 http://www.iit.cnr.it/FAST2011 FAST2011 is co-located with European Symposium on Research in Computer Security (ESORICS 2011) Leuven, Belgium 12-14 September, 2011 OVERVIEW The eighth International Workshop on Formal Aspects of Security and Trust (FAST2011) aims at continuing the successful efforts of the previous FAST workshops, fostering cooperation among researchers in the areas of security and trust. Computing and network infrastructures have become pervasive, and now support a great deal of economic activity. Thus, society needs suitable security and trust mechanisms. Interactions increasingly span several enterprises and involve loosely structured communities of individuals. Participants in these activities must control interactions with their partners based on trust policies and business logic. Trust-based decisions effectively determine the security goals for shared information and for access to sensitive or valuable resources. FAST focuses on the formal models of security and trust that are needed to state goals and policies for these interactions. We also seek new and innovative techniques for establishing consequences of these formal models. Implementation approaches for such techniques are also welcome.

Two types of submissions are possible: 1) short papers, up to 5 pages in LNCS format. 2) full papers, up to 15 pages in LNCS format. Submissions should clearly state their category (1 or 2). Author's full name, address, and e-mail must appear on the first page. Short papers as well as full papers will be included in the informal proceedings distributed at the workshop. After the workshop, authors of short papers which are judged mature enough for publication will be invited to submit full papers. These will be reviewed according to the usual refereeing procedures, and accepted papers will be published in the post-proceedings in LNCS. Simultaneous submission of full papers to a journal or conference/workshop with formal proceedings justifies rejection. Short papers at FAST are not formally published, so this restriction does not apply to them. However, related publications and overlapping submissions must be cited explicitly in short papers. Papers should be submitted via the EasyChair system: http://www.easychair.org/conferences/?conf=fast2011 PROCEEDINGS As done for the previous issues of FAST, the post-proceedings of the workshop will be published in LNCS. A special journal issue is also planned.
