SECURITY AND PRIVACY IN EMERGING SCENARIOS

The recent evolution of ICT enables people to perform tasks and access data/services anywhere at any time, since people (and things) can always be connected to the Internet. These emerging scenarios provide unprecedented advantages for final users, which however come at the price of novel security and privacy risks. Today, more and more data are stored and elaborated in the cloud (under the control of a third party), home and personal appliances are accessible form outside (making them more vulnerable to attacks), sensors track users' locations and activities (and exchange data). These are only a few examples of how emerging scenarios are changing the security and  privacy risks to which we are exposed. This technical session aims to bring together researchers and practitioners interested in discussing and finding solutions to the security and privacy issues characterizing emerging scenarios. 

 

AUTHORS INSTRUCTIONS

Prospective Authors of papers are invited to submit a draft paper (typically 2-4 pages for the draft version, 4-6 pages for the final paper, in standard IEEE two-column format) via EDAS by suggesting the related Technical Session. The paper should contain a complete description of the proposed technical contribution along with some results, suitably framed in the related state of the art. Each paper will be reviewed in terms of relevance with respect to the scope of the event, originality and quality of the technical content, overall organization and writing style. Papers must be prepared according to the instructions reported on the RTSI 2016. Submission of papers implies intention to register and present the related content at the conference.
