The goal of the school is to provide a forum for researchers and practitioners interested in the latest research developments in the broad area of “trusted and secure composite Future Internet services”.  The school thus addresses several research strands. Trust management models and architectures for services and cloud systems; security and interoperability aspects for guaranteeing trustworthy service behavior and elicitation and validation of the security requirements  involving multiple autonomous stakeholders; trustworthy service composition  which aims at the integration and interoperability of end-to-end trusted services by using composition techniques to enable a better modularity, reconfiguration and dynamic adaptation. Other aspects to consider include assessing the trustworthiness of composition of services as well the relationships between trust and risk. 

The school is co-located with the IFIP trust management conference in Malaga and several scientific events that can also attract school participant interests. The school is conducted in cooperation with several EU research projects.
