The Second IEEE International Workshop on Security and Privacy for Internet of Things and Cyber-Physical Systems (IoT/CPS-Security 2017)

in conjunction with

The 15th IEEE DASC 2017, November 6-10, Orlando, Florida, USA.

IoT/CPS-Security and DASC 2017 has selected "Orlando" this time, a city in central Florida, known to be a home to more than a dozen theme parks. Chief among its claims to fame is Walt Disney World, comprised of parks like the Magic Kingdom and Epcot, as well as water parks. Another major destination, Universal Orlando, offers Universal Studios and Islands of Adventure, with the Wizarding World of Harry Potter straddling both.

Workshop Overview:

Cyber-physical systems (CPS) are engineered systems that are built from, and depend upon, the seamless integration of computational algorithms and distributed physical components. Internet of Things (IoT) is the networking infrastructure of CPS. Trillions of network-connected objects are expected to emerge in the global network around 2020. Cyber security and privacy have emerged as a major concern as a human rights issue, a commercial concern, and a national security issue affecting infrastructure, health services and safety.

Modern CPS incorporates components from different providers using explicit interface standards that specify communication protocols. The trend towards distribution has recently accelerated as these systems have been employing the IoT as a backbone. The integrity and reliability of communications and networking are critical for security and privacy for IoT and CPS. This is why hosting the workshop at IEEE DASC 2017.

Potential contributors include industry professionals, scientists, academics and government officials committed to advancing communications and networking research to address cybersecurity and privacy challenges.
