Call for Papers – The Joint Workshop on CPS & IoT Security and Privacy

Call for Papers

The Joint Workshop on CPS & IoT Security and Privacy

In conjunction with the
ACM Conference on Computer and Communications Security 2020 

Submission Deadline: July 23, 2020 (23:59 Anywhere on Earth time)

Background

The Joint Workshop on CPS&IoT Security and Privacy (CPSIoTSec) is the result of the merger of the Workshop on Cyber-Physical Systems Security and Privacy (CPS-SPC) and Workshop on the Internet of Things Security and Privacy (IoTS&P) previously organized annually in conjunction with ACM Conference on Computer and Communications Security.

Scope

The Joint Workshop on CPS&IoT Security and Privacy invites academia, industry, and governmental entities to submit:

  • Original research papers on the security and privacy of CPS and IoT
  • Systematization of Knowledge (SoK) papers on the security and privacy of CPS and IoT
  • Demos (hands-on or videos) of testbeds/experiences of CPS and IoT security and privacy research

We seek submissions from multiple interdisciplinary backgrounds tackling security and privacy issues in CPS and IoT, including but not limited to:

  • Mathematical foundations for secure CPS/IoT
  • Control-theoretic approaches
  • High assurance security architectures
  • Security and resilience metrics
  • Metrics and risk assessment approaches
  • Identity and access management
  • Privacy and trust
  • Network security
  • Game theory applied to CPS/IoT security
  • Human factors, humans in the loop, and usable security
  • Understanding dependencies among security, reliability and safety in CPS/IoT
  • Economics of security and privacy
  • Intrusion and anomaly detection
  • Model-based security systems engineering
  • Sensor and actuator attacks
  • CPS/IoT malware analysis
  • CPS/IoT firmware analysis
  • Hardware-assisted CPS/IoT security

Also, of interest will be papers that can point the research community to new research directions, and those that can set research agendas and priorities in CPS/IoT security and privacy. There will be a best paper award. The best paper will be invited for extended paper submission to the Special Issue on Cyber-Physical System Security @ Cybersecurity (Springer), with a September 30th deadline.

Submission Guidelines

Submissions include long papers (12 pages) and short papers (6 pages).

Long papers include:

  1. Original research on a CPS/IoT security and privacy topic
  2. Systematization of Knowledge of CPS/IoT security and privacy

Short papers include:

  1. Original preliminary research on a CPS/IoT security and privacy topic
  2. Demos/interesting findings/insights on CPS/IoT security and privacy

Submitted papers can be up to 12 or 6 pages including appendices and references (except for SoK papers where references are excluded). Submissions must use the format defined by CCS (https://www.sigsac.org/ccs/CCS2020/call-for-papers.html). Only PDF files will be accepted. There is no requirement to anonymize the submissions; Authors may choose to submit anonymously or not.Accepted papers will be published by the ACM Press and/or the ACM Digital Library. Submissions must not substantially overlap with papers that have been published or that are simultaneously submitted to a journal or a conference with proceedings. Each accepted paper must be presented by a registered author. Submissions not meeting these guidelines risk immediate rejection. For questions about these policies, please contact the chairs.
