           The 1st FTRA International Workshop on Convergence Security in 

           Pervasive Environments (IWCS 2011) 


                                Crete, Greece, June 28 - 30, 2011








A recent emerging issue in information technology is the convergence of
different kinds of applications. Convergence brings a user-centric
environment to 

provide computing and communication services. In order to realize IT
advantages, it requires the integration of security and data management to
be suitable for 

pervasive computing environments. However, there are still many problems and
major challenges waiting for us to solve such as the security risks in

application, which could appear when devices interact with different kinds
of applications. Therefore, we need to explore convergence security in



IWCS 2011 addresses the various theories and practical applications of
convergence security in pervasive environments. It will present important
results of 

significant value in order to improve application services and solve various
problems within the scope of IWCS 2011. In addition, we expect it will

further related research and technology developments that will improve our
lives in the future. 


Another area that must be considered in the convergence of different
security services in pervasive environments is the Internet of Things (IoT).
There are 

many definitions of the IoT, but all of them revolve around the same central
concept: a world-wide network of interconnected objects. It is to be
expected that 

the elements of a pervasive environment will greatly benefit from Internet
connectivity, as pervasive devices will be able to interact with external

by obtaining services or even by providing them. However, it is necessary to
address how the different security mechanisms used in the local pervasive 

environment could interact with protocols and mechanisms (e.g. secure web
services) that allow secure collaboration with remote entities. Considering
that the 

security of the IoT is a topic that is currently being considered a priority
by many different industrial, commercial and governmental actors, the secure

convergence of this new paradigm with pervasive environments is a potential
research field that will be taken into account in our workshop.
