Workshop on IoT Privacy, Trust, and Security (IoTPTS)

April 14, 2015, Singapore

Held in conjunction with the 10th ACM Symposium on Information, Computer and Communications Security (ASIACCS'15

Call for Papers

The Internet of Things (IoT) is the next great technology frontier. At a basic level, IoT refers simply to networked devices, but the IoT vision is a complex ecosystem that ranges from cloud backend services and big-data analytics to home, public, industrial, and wearable sensor devices and appliances. Architectures for these systems are in the formative stages, and now is the time to ensure privacy, trust, and security are designed into these systems from the beginning.

We encourage submissions on all aspects of IoT privacy, trust, and security.

Topics of interest include (but are not limited) to the following areas:

  • Privacy and IoT data
  • Privacy attacks for IoT
  • Trust management and device discoverability for IoT
  • Usability of privacy and security systems in IoT
  • User risk perceptions and modeling for IoT
  • Policy Management and enforcement for IoT
  • Authentication and access control for users for IoT
  • Cryptography for IoT
  • Attack detection and remediation for IoT
  • Security architectures for IoT systems and applications

Important Dates

Submissions due: Jan. 7, 2015
Author notification: Jan 31, 2015
Camera-ready due: Feb 14, 2015 
Workshop date: April 14, 2015


Submitted papers must not substantially overlap papers that have been published or that are simultaneously submitted to a journal or a conference with proceedings. All submissions should be appropriately anonymized (i.e., papers should not contain author names or affiliations, or obvious citations). Regular submissions must be written in English with at most 8 pages including the bibliography and appendices. Position papers or short papers describing preliminary work of at most 4 pages are also welcome. Submissions must be in double-column ACM format with a font no smaller than 9 point. Please use the ACM SIG Proceedings Templates (download here). Only PDF files will be accepted. Authors of accepted papers must guarantee that their papers will be presented at the workshop. At least one author of the paper must be registered at the appropriate full conference rate. Accepted papers will be published by ACM Press as conference proceedings in USB thumb drives and in the ACM Digital Library.
