The 8th International Workshop on Formal Aspects of Security&  Trust (FAST2011)
               Leuven, Belgium.  September 15-16, 2011

FAST2011 is co-located with European Symposium on Research in Computer
Security (ESORICS 2011) Leuven, Belgium 12-14 September, 2011


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.

We seek papers presenting original contributions. 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:


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
