“Security and Privacy Fostering Collaboration” panel, CollaborateCom Conference Orlando

Join us at the panel  “Security and Privacy Fostering Collaboration” in CollaborateCom 2011 conference
Panel Statement:

Collective intelligence, social relationships and collaboration among users create valuable knowledge that can be leveraged to foster decision-making and resource management processes. We are all witnesses of the successful usage of this knowledge in several different areas (collaborative filtering and recommendation systems are just two notable examples). This paradigm-shifting approach raises new interesting research issues and opportunities in the security field. The panel will explore and discuss these issues with an aim of investigating on the one hand how collaborative intelligence can be of support to security mechanisms, and on the other hand, how security mechanisms can ensure the knowledge/information management in the collaborative environment.

Moderator: Barbara Carminati, University of Insubria, Italy

Panelists:

  • Konstantinos Pelechrinis, University of Pittsburgh, USA
  • Anna Squicciarini, Pennsylvania State University, USA
  • John Zic, CSIRO ICT Centre, University of New South Wales, Macquarie University, Australia
