Dear Colleagues,

Please see below the Call for Papers for ACM SafeThings 2017. We enthusiastically look forward to your submissions on advancements in the safety of the Internet of Things ecosystem.  

1st ACM Workshop on the Internet of Safe Things (SafeThings 2017)
November 5, 2017 at TU Delft, The Netherlands
Co-located with ACM SenSys 2017

As the traditionally segregated systems are brought online for next generation connected applications, we have an opportunity to significantly improve the safety of legacy systems. For instance, insights from data across systems can be exploited to reduce accidents, improve air quality and support disaster events. Cyber-physical systems (CPS) also bring new risks that arise due to the unexpected interaction between systems. These safety risks arise because of information that distracts users while driving, software errors in medical devices, corner cases in data-driven control, compromised sensors in drones or conflicts in societal policies.

Accordingly, the Internet of Safe Things workshop (or SafeThings, for brevity) seeks to bring researchers and practitioners that are actively exploring system design, modeling, verification, authentication approaches to provide safety guarantees in the Internet of Things (IoT). The workshop welcomes contributions that integrate hardware and software systems provided by disparate vendors, particularly those that have humans in the loop. As safety is inherently linked with the security and privacy, we also seek contributions in security and privacy that address safety concerns. With the SafeThings workshop, we seek to develop a community that systematically dissects the vulnerabilities and risks exposed by these emerging CPSes, and create tools, algorithms, frameworks and systems that help in the development of safe systems.

SafeThings workshop covers safety topics as it relates to an individual’s health (physical, mental), the society (air pollution, toxicity, disaster events), or the environment (species preservation, global warming, oil spills). The workshop considers safety from a human perspective, and thus, does not include topics such as thread safety or memory safety in its scope.

Our workshop will cover, but not limit itself to, the following subject categories:
- Verification of safety in IoT platforms
- Privacy preserving data sharing and analysis
- Compliance with legal, health and environmental policies
- Integration of hardware and software systems
- Conflict resolution between IoT applications
- Safety in human-in-the-loop systems
- Support for IoT development - debugging tools, emulators, testbeds
- Usable security and privacy for IoT platforms
- Resiliency against attacks and faults
- Secure connectivity in IoT

Our workshop will cover, but not limit itself to, the following domains: autonomous vehicles and transportation infrastructure; medical CPS and public health; smart buildings, smart grid and smart cities.

ISDF 2017
You are invited to participate in The Third International Conference on Information Security and Digital Forensics (ISDF2017) that will be held in Metropolitan College, Thessaloniki, Greece on Dec 8-10, 2017. The event will be held over three days, with presentations delivered by researchers from the international community, including presentations from keynote speakers and state-of-the-art lectures. All registered papers will be published in SDIWC Digital Library, and in the proceedings of the conference.
