We are seeking papers describing innovative approaches in trust representation, modelling and processing. NTTCM'2014 will include technical aspects on how trust can be modelled and represented in computational environments, by addressing advances in the theory, design, implementation, analysis, and application of trust concepts. There is also interest in knowing how trust methodologies and concepts from different areas can be transposed and adapted to other scenarios by discussing the advantages and limitations of the different trust implementations being developed. Focus will be on new and emerging areas such as immersive environments, cloud services and information systems reliability, but also on insights from social sciences in cognitive developments and mediated computational interactions. With NTTCM'2014, we intent to contribute to the exchanging of ideas among researchers, by bringing together different perspectives and approaches on trust computational models challenges, making the workshop a privileged forum for dissemination of the latest scientific and technical trends regarding computational modelling approaches to trust. We also would like to contribute to consolidate the field of trust computing, by presenting and discussing emergent scenarios that would benefit from further integration of trust conceptualizations. We are particularly interested in papers that relate complementary trust methodologies, using conceptualizations from different contexts and backgrounds in the development of new and innovative computational trust models. We encourage original research contributions in trust representation, modelling and processing as well as practical developments and experimental results in trust and related topics.

Authors of workshop best papers will be invited to submit an extended version of their contribution to be published in a special issue of International Journal of Trust Management in Computing and Communications (Inderscience Publishers).


The NTTCM'2014 Workshop papers published as part of ICCSA'2014 conference proceedings in a Springer LNCS volume, will be indexed in the following services: ISI Conference Proceedings Citation Index - Science (CPCI-S) included in ISI Web of Science, EI Engineering Index (Compendex and Inspec databases), ACM Digital Library, dblp, Google Scholar, IO-Port, MathSciNet, Scopus and Zentralblatt MATH. Additional information about the process is available from Springer LNCS Indexing Information.


Registration and oral presentation at the workshop is compulsory for at least one of the authors of the accepted papers. The registration procedure is made through the electronic service of 14th International Conference on Computational Science and Its Applications (ICCS'2014).


Each paper must be an original and unpublished work, not submitted for publication elsewhere. Eventual copyright problems are entirely responsibility of the authors.


Papers will be reviewed by at least three reviewers in order to ensure the quality and relevance of the publication contributions.


Accepted papers must take in account improvements and recommendations from the referees. They must follow the formatting guidelines in the preparation of the camera-ready paper. Acceptance also require that at least one of the authors will register and present orally the paper in the workshop. Failure to comply with these requirements, will lead to remove the paper from the workshop proceedings and will not be published in the LNCS.

The city of Guimarães is a live and entrepreneurial city, being one of the youngest cities in the country, with half of its inhabitants under 30, combines with harmony is historical heritage with a string of recent initiatives and developments. Guimarães is current, the European City of Sport (2013), and it was also in 2012 the European Capital of Culture, together with Maribor (Slovenia). The city of Guimarães is historically associated with the foundation and identity of the Portuguese nationality, its historical center is classified by UNESCO as a World Heritage Site and is presently one of the major touristic hubs of the northern region of Portugal. Refereed by New York Times as a emergent cultural city in the Iberian Peninsula and a interesting place to visit. Additional information can be found in the Guimarães Traveller Guide, Guimarães Municipality and Wikipedia.



Porto International Airport (OPO) is the nearest airport to Guimarães, located just at 54 km by motorway. From the airport, several transport options are available. We recommended using abus shuttle service between Porto airport and Guimarães. Another choice is to use the Tram (line E) connection from the airport to Porto Campanhã train station (usually a 30 minutes voyage), and from Campanhã a train will take 60 minutes to reach Guimarães. There are also other solutions, like taking a taxi or renting a car and drive directly to Guimarães.

In case of arrival at Lisbon International Airport (LIS), the best choice will be to take the subway to Oriente multimodal transportation station (subway,rail and bus terminal station), and from there take a fast train to Guimarães (our recommended option). Alternatives involve, taking a connection flight to Porto airport and continuing from there as was previously indicated or use one of the existing express bus services available Rede Expressos or Citi Express Bus to travel to Guimarães. Renting car services are yet another alternative to make the 365 km voyage to Guimarães by motorway.


Guimarães can be reached by train from Porto and Lisbon. Informations on times schedules and online ticketing can be obtained from CP, the portuguese national train company.


Guimarães is well connected by motorway with all major cites in northern Portugal and Spanish autonomous region of Galicia. Is only 54 km away from Porto airport (approximately 40 minutes by motorway). From Porto city center is just 55 km. The city spanish city of Vigo at north is the closest foreign city at 120 km. Lisbon, Portugal capital and main country hub is 365 km away to the south. There are several bus companies that connect every major city in Portugal with Guimarães.

Our recommendation will be to travel by Bus using Citi Express Bus service, that connects Guimarães with all major cities in Portugal. The Guimarães bus station is located in the street Alameda Mariano Felgueira, in the vicinity of the mall Guimarães Shopping.

If the choice is a rented car, using Portugal motorway network is the easiest and fast way to reach Guimarães. Informations on tool prices, electronic tool systems journey simulation and travel indications can be found in the motorways explored by Ascendi and Brisa.

Driving directions:
From Porto, Guimarães is 56 km at north-east, following the A3 motorway for 30 km, then exit to A7 in direction of Guimarães, it will take 30 minutes to get there.
From Braga, Guimarães it is just at 25 km away by A11 motorway, approximately a 15 minutes trip.
From Lisbon, follow A1 motorway in direction to Porto, then take A3 for 30 km and exit to A7 towards Guimarães. It will take approximately 3 hours to arrive at Guimarães.
From Chaves in the north-east a border town with Spain, the distance to Guimarães is 105 kms by A24 motorway.
From Vila Real in the east, follow IP4 highway and then A11 motorway. It will take 86 kms to reach Guimarães.
From the spanish town of Vigo, take AP-9 motorway in direction to Portugal (exit number 151), then follow A3 motorway, and exit to A9 towards Guimarães, the trip will take 90 minutes.
