This workshop is focusing on Theft in E-Commerce (of content, identity and 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. It is our hope that we could stimulate such research by bringing together the leaders in this area, which is the very intention of this workshop.
If you wish to give a talk at the workshop, please send us a title of the talk and an abstract, before the end of February. We will try to accomodate as many as possible, while doing our best to create a program that is well-rounded yet still focused.
