IEEE International Symposium on 
Security, Privacy and Trust in Internet of Things (SPTIoT 2017)
In conjunction with IEEE TrustCom-17
August 1-4, 2017|Sydney, Australia

NOTE: Authors from all accepted papers should follow main conference website to submit camera ready and registration.

The Internet of Things (IoT) is becoming a key infrastructure for the development of smart ecosystems. IoT is a novel design paradigm, envisioned as a network of billions or trillions of devices communicating with eachother and rapidly gaining global attention from academia, industry, and government. IoT has the potential to offer innovative solutions to real time problems such as ageing populations, climate change, healthcare, and bettelfield monitoring etc. The heterogeneous nature of the IoT as well as the computational constraints of many of the building blocks of the IoT make security, privacy and trust a challenging problem to solve on the one hand, while security, privacy and trust play a critical role for most if not all applications of IoT in domains such as surveillance, healthcare, security, transport, food safety, manufacturing, logistics and supply chain management. Without effective solutions for security, privacy and trust reliable data fusion and mining, qualified services with context-aware intelligence and enhanced user acceptance and experience cannot be achieved. 

This symposium aims at providing such forum for researchers, practitioners and and developers from different background areas such as IoT, big data, networking, wireless communication, information security and privacy protection areas to exchange the latest experience, research ideas and synergic research and development on fundamental issues and applications about security, privacy and trust issues in IoT environments. The symposium solicits high quality research results in all related areas.

Scope and Topics: 

The objective of this symposium is to invite authors to submit original manuscripts that demonstrate and explore current advances in all aspects of security, privacy and trust in IoT systems. The symposium solicits novel papers on a broad range of topics, including but not limited to: 

  • Security, privacy and trust in Integration of IoT devices and their data
  • Security, privacy and trust in IoT cloud services and resources
  • Secure IoT data query, analysis, and visualization
  • Security, privacy and trust in real-time IoT data analysis
  • IoT device actuation and feedback
  • Secure Mobile sensing and data analysis
  • Security, privacy and trust in analysis of social media posting and crowdsourcing
  • Security, privacy and trust in Fusion of sensor data with the social media postings
  • Security, privacy and trust in Edge/fog computing services for IoT
  • Security, privacy and trust in IoT Big data
  • Cyber-attacks detection and prevention;
  • Cyber security based on post-quantum cryptography
  • Cyber defence strategies and responsibilities in IoT system
  • Cyber threats and threat intelligence
  • Efficient/Secure implementation of cryptographic algorithms in IOT
  • Physical Unclonable Functions for IoT Security
  • Cryptanalysis and attacks on cryptosystems
  • Authentication and access control in IoT
  • IoT networking and communication security
  • Privacy and anonymization techniques in IoT

Paper Submission Guidelines

Papers submitted to the symposium should be written in English conforming to the IEEE Conference Proceedings Format (8.5" x 11", Two-Column). The paper should be submitted through the symposium EasyChair submission system. Prospective authors are invited to submit full papers up to 6 pages in length and  authors are allowed to purchase up to 2 extra pages.


Accepted and presented papers will be included into the IEEE Conference Proceedings published by IEEE CS CPS and submitted to IEEE Xplore. Authors of accepted papers, or at least one of them, are requested to register and present their work at the conference, otherwise their papers will be removed from the digital libraries of IEEE CS after the conference. 

Submitting a paper to the symposium means that, if the paper is accepted, at least one author should attend the symposium and present the paper.
