August 4th, 2014 by

Apr 13, 2015 – Apr 17, 2015
Salamanca, Spain
Submission Deadline: Sep 12, 2014
Notification Due: Nov 17, 2014
Final Version Due: Dec 8, 2014

The 30th ACM Symposium on Applied Computing 
Track: Trust, Reputation, Evidence and other Collaboration Know-how (TRECK) 
Proceedings: ACM printed form, ACM CD-ROM and ACM digital library 

Aims and scope of the TRECK track: 

Computational models of trust and online reputation mechanisms have been gaining momentum. 
The ACM SAC 2005, 2006, 2007, 2008, 2009, 2010, 2011, 2012, 2013 and 2014 TRECK tracks 
attracted more than 280 researchers from both academia and industry who have 
joined an online group at 

The goal of the ACM SAC 2015 TRECK track remains to review the set of 
applications that benefit from the use of computational trust and online 
reputation. Computational trust has been used in reputation systems, risk 
management, collaborative filtering, social/business networking services, 
dynamic coalitions, virtual organisations and even combined with trusted 
computing hardware modules. The TRECK track covers all computational 
trust/reputation applications, especially those used in real-world applications. 

We would like to emphasize that we may accept the submission of industrial experience reports, 
commercial tools case studies and reports of innovative computing applications if they are written in a scientific way. 

This year, we have a special focus on Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) and corporate security, trust, risk and privacy 
so those kinds of contributions are especially welcome! 

The FP7 MUSES project investigates BYOD and corporate security, trust, risk and privacy and sponsors the ACM SAC’15 TRECK track,
