The 11th IEEE International Conference on Trust, Security and Privacy in Computing and Communications (TrustCom 2012)

25-27 June 2012

Liverpool, England, UK

Sponsored by IEEE, IEEE Computer Society and IEEE Technical Committee of Scalable Computing (TCSC)


With rapid development and increasing complexity of computer and communications systems and networks, user requirements for trust, security and privacy are becoming more and more demanding. However, there is a grand challenge that traditional security technologies and measures may not meet user requirements in open, dynamic, heterogeneous, mobile, wireless, and distributed computing environments. Therefore, we need to build systems and networks in which various applications allow users to enjoy more comprehensive services while preserving trust, security and privacy at the same time. As useful and innovative technologies, trusted computing and communications are attracting researchers with more and more attention.

The 11th IEEE International Conference on Trust, Security and Privacy in Computing and Communications (IEEE TrustCom-12) will be held in Liverpool, United Kingdom in June 25-27, 2012. It follows the success of TrustCom-11 in Changsha, China. The conference aims at bringing together researchers and practitioners in the world working on trusted computing and communications, with regard to trust, security, privacy, reliability, dependability, survivability, availability, and fault tolerance aspects of computer systems and networks, and providing a forum to present and discuss emerging ideas and trends in this highly challenging research field.
