Twan says of WEIS: "Darn, why did I miss this workshop!? ... interesting stuff" Me too. Here's another one:

Call For Papers

20th IEEE Computer Security Foundations Workshop (CSF)
Venice, Italy, July 6 - 8, 2007

Sponsored by the Technical Committee on Security and Privacy
of the IEEE Computer Society

CSF home page:

The IEEE Computer Security Foundations Workshop (CSF) series brings together researchers in computer science to examine foundational issues in computer security. Over the past two decades, many seminal papers and techniques have been presented first at CSF. The CiteSeer Impact page lists CSF as 38th out of more than 1200 computer science venues in impact (top 3.11%) based on citation frequency. There is a possibility of upgrading CSF to an IEEE symposium already in 2007.

New theoretical results in computer security are welcome. Also welcome are more exploratory presentations, which may examine open questions and raise fundamental concerns about existing theories. Panel proposals are welcome as well as papers. Possible topics include, but are not limited to:

   Authentication    Access control    Distributed systems
   Information flow  Trust and trust   security
   Security          management        Security for mobile
   protocols         Security models   computing
   Anonymity and     Intrusion         Executable content
   Privacy           detection         Decidability and
   Electronic voting Data and system   complexity
   Network security  integrity         Formal methods for
   Resource usage    Database security security
   control                             Language-based

Proceedings published by the IEEE Computer Society Press will be available at the workshop, and selected papers will be invited for submission to the Journal of Computer Security.
