IEEE International Symposium on Policies for Distributed Systems and Networks (POLICY 2009)

FYI; this workshop was announced on the W3C PLING mailing list.


20-22 July 2009
Imperial College London, UK

The symposium brings together researchers and practitioners working on policy-based systems across a range of application areas including policy-based networking, privacy and security management, storage area networking, and enterprise systems. POLICY 2009 has grown out of a highly successful series of workshops and this is recognized by the elevation of the event to an IEEE symposium.

This year, in addition to the latest research results from the communities working in any area of policy-based management and computing, we encourage contributions on policy-based techniques in support of privacy and security management, including the policy life-cycle, detection and resolution of inconsistency, refining policies from users’ requirements, and usability issues.
