Track 2: Security, Privacy, and Trust

Track Chair:

  • Marco Viviani (University of Milan-Bicocca)
  • Rasheed Husain (Bristol Digital Futures Institute, UK)

Scope                                                                                                                                                                                              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 We solicit submissions of original unpublished scholarly work that is not under consideration by another journal or conference.
