  • Jorge Bernal Bernabe, University of Murcia, Spain



The Security, Privacy and Trust track aims at providing a forum for researchers and engineers in academia and industry to foster an exchange of research results, experiences, and products that involve the cybersecurity aspects in our daily activities. The focus of the track is on advances in

cybersecurity technologies that involves new attacks and hacker exploits in several domains such as automotive, cyber-physical systems, networking infrastructure, quantum computing, artificial intelligence, deep learning for information security, digital crime and forensics, intrusion detection/prevention and incident response, malware and attack analysis, privacy and data breaches, and governance and information security management. The track aims at presenting the advancement on the state of art in these fields and spreading their adoption in several scenarios involving main stockholders of the Security, Privacy and Trust domain. We solicit submissions of original unpublished scholarly work that is not under consideration by another journal or conference.

Topics of interest include:

  • Security threats and vulnerabilities
  • Privacy and Security in Cloud and Edge Computing
  • Privacy and Security in Data Center Networks
  • Automated Vehicular Technologies
  • Vehicular Communications and Networks
  • In-Vehicle communication protocols
  • Offensive and Defensive Cybersecurity
