Call for Papers

The problems of ‘closing-the-loop’ in smart city application areas are compounded due to the spatial and temporal scales of operation, heterogeneity, and complexity of the underlying physical systems, their interaction with socio-economic behaviors, and risks of cybersecurity and privacy. This workshop aims to focus on these problems and the innovative solutions in this area.

Papers should describe original work and be maximum six pages in length using the CPSWeek ACM format. Submissions can fall under one or more of the following categories: (1) initial and promising research results, (2) industrial case studies, (3) position statements with sufficient justification and rationale for the proposed idea(s). At least three workshop committee members will review all submitted papers. All papers will be published in the ACM digital library. Selected high quality papers will be considered for publication (after substantial extension) in the Elsevier's Pervasive and Mobile Computing journal.

Topics of Interest are

  • Trustworthy Analytics and Privacy control:

    • Anomaly Detection in Smart Connected Communities
    • Trust Models for Rogue Component Identification
    • Security vs Privacy Tradeoffs in Smart Connected Communities
    • Online reasoning and middleware architectures for trustworthy and dependable decision making.
    • Interactions between privacy, security, resilience, reliability, and safety from both theoretical and operational perspectives
    • Social media data and public safety issues, including understanding issues related to trustworthiness of the data and suggested decisions
    • Smart city solutions and their deployment examples with cybersecurity and privacy as the first order concern.
  • Multi-tiered modeling simulation, spatio-temporal data analysis and (online) control across domains such as
