masters students.



The symposium brings together researchers and
practitioners working on policy-based systems
across a wide range of application domains
including policy-based networking, privacy, trust
and security management, autonomic computing,
pervasive systems and enterprise systems. 

POLICY 2011 is the 12th in a series of successful events,
which have provided a forum for discussion and
collaboration between researchers, developers and
users of policy-based systems. 



POLICY 2011 invites system demonstrations that illustrate
research contributions and innovative applications
of policy-based technologies. System demonstration submissions 
will be evaluated on the basis of their technical merit and novelty.

Topics of interest include, but are not limited to the following:

Privacy and Security:

- Frameworks and tools for managing the privacy
  and the security policy life-cycle

- Architectures for deployment and enforcement of
  privacy and security policies 

- Refinement of high-level privacy/security requirements
  into policies 

- Detection and resolution of inconsistencies in privacy 
  and security policies

- Usability of policy-based privacy and security
  management tools

Policy Models and Languages:

- Abstract models and languages for policy specification

- Semantic Web rule languages for policy reasoning 

- Policy standards, their extensions and refinements

- Formal semantics of policies

- NLP and policy specification

- Methodologies and tools for specifying, analyzing, 
  refining, and evaluating policies

- Detection and resolution of policy conflicts

- Policy negotiation models and techniques

- Representation of belief, trust, and risk and their 
  use in conjunction with policy-based systems

- Systems and tools for the management of policies

- Policy visualization

- Usability of policy languages and representations 

Policy Applications:

- Federated policy management in heterogeneous 
  organisational contexts and control domains

- Case studies of applying policy-based management in 
  different application domains

- Application of policies for resource allocation, 
  autonomic computing, systems management, 

QoS adaptation and security

- Policy-based systems for cloud computing, and service 
  oriented applications

- Policy-based networking, including collaborative security, 
  pervasive computing, and mobile systems

- Policy-based Semantic Web applications

- Business rules and organizational modelling

- Policy Metrics: evaluation of the effectiveness of policies

- Policy applications in on-demand, utility based computing

- Resource virtualization and policy-based collaboration

- Cross-domain policy coordination and negotiation

- Scalability of policy-based management 

- Architectures of policy-based management systems 

- Policy Learning and automated policy generation

Those interested in demonstrating a system/application 
should submit a description following the instructions 
in the submission information section. Commercial
products are eligible, but sales and marketing
activities are not appropriate.
