Edited versions of selected papers from a 2002 IEEE COMPSAC
workshop held in Oxford, UK, together with several additional papers on state- of-the-art topics, cover key developments, directions, and challenges for securing the semantic Web, managing and enforcing security policies, and securing emerging systems such as multimedia and collaborative networks.
As computer systems and software applications continue to become more complex and evolve into the fast emerging mobile and cloud platform, COMPSAC
has been evolving too, to offer the richest possible technical contents that feed participants a well-balanced coverage of interrelated technical issues," said Carl Chang, the COMPSAC
Standing Committee Chair since 2006.
