The primary goal of security mechanisms is to provide protection against malicious parties. With the fast emergence of a global Internet featuring computing clouds and heterogeneous computing platform, the security of the hardware resources, the data exchanged and the executions carried on plays an increasingly important role in today's information society. However, in wide range of security challenges the traditional security techniques cannot be applied. These challenges are typically addressed by so called soft security mechanisms were the notion of trust plays major role.

University of Luxembourg (UL) has recently signed agreements on cooperation with two prestigious polish scientific institutions, Instytut Podstaw Informatyki Polskiej Akademii Nauk (IPIPAN) and the Warsaw University of Technology - Politechnika Warszawska (WUT).
The goal of these agreements is focused on student exchange, common supervision of PhD students and scientific collaboration between the researchers of these institutions leading to joint educational and research programs. The Luxembourg-Polish Workshop on Security and Trust is the next step to enhance the cooperation between Luxembourg and Polish academic societies working in the field of security (which constitutes the first research priority of the UL). The workshop aims at grouping high profile research experts of Luxembourg and Poland working in these fields, leading to creation of a platform for research collaboration with international partners.

Topics of interest include, but are not limited to: This inaugural edition will be held 6-7 May, 2010 in the beautiful Castle of Bourglinster (Luxembourg). The Castle that dates back from the 13th century is located in the heart of the Grand Duchy (15 kilometers North-East from the city of Luxembourg) and offers a network of pleasant walks and footpaths together with a restaurant owned by a prized cooker.
