---------------------------------------------------------------------- Call for Papers EIGHTH ACM DRM WORKSHOP (Co-located with ACM-CCS 2008, Alexandria, Virginia, USA) http://www.ece.unm.edu/DRM2008/ Submission deadline: May 23, 2008 Workshop: October 27, 2008 - Alexandria, Virginia, USA ---------------------------------------------------------------------- The ACM Workshop on Digital Rights Management is an international forum that serves as an interdisciplinary bridge between areas that can be applied to solving the problem of Intellectual Property protection of digital content. These include: cryptography, software and computer systems design, trusted computing, information and signal processing, intellectual property law, policy-making, as well as business analysis and economics. Its purpose is to bring together researchers from the above fields for a full day of formal talks and informal discussions, covering new results that will spur new investigations regarding the foundations and practices of DRM. This year's workshop, the eighth in the series, continues this tradition. As in the previous editions, it is sponsored by ACM SIGSAC and is held in conjunction with the ACM Conference in Computer and Communications Security (CCS). Topics of interest include but are not limited to: * anonymous publishing, privacy and DRM * architectures for DRM systems * business models for online content distribution, risk management * copyright-law issues, including but not limited to fair use * digital goods and online multiplayer games * digital policy management * DRM and consumer rights, labeling and competition law * implementations and case studies * information theory and combinatorics, including marking assumptions and related codes * robust identification of digital content * security issues, including but not limited to authorization, encryption, tamper resistance, and watermarking * regulatory authority for DRM, interoperability * supporting cryptographic technology including but not limited to traitor tracing, broadcast encryption, obfuscation * threat and vulnerability assessment * trusted computing, attestation, hardware support for DRM, side-channels * usability aspects of DRM systems * web services related to DRM systems IMPORTANT DATES: Submission deadline: May 23, 2008 Notification of acceptance: July 10, 2008 Camera-ready version: August 8, 2008 Workshop: October 27, 2008 INSTRUCTIONS FOR AUTHORS: Submissions must not overlap with papers that have been published or that are simultaneously submitted to a journal or a conference with proceedings.
