Call For Papers

The Internet of Things (IoT) technology is widely adopted by the vast majority of businesses and is impacting every aspect of the world. However, the natures of the Internet, communication, embedded OS and backend recourses make IoT objects vulnerable to cyber attacks. In addition, most standard security solutions designed for enterprise systems are not applicable to IoT devices. As a result, we are facing a big IoT security and protection challenge, and it is urgent to analyze IoT-specific cyber attacks to design novel and efficient security mechanisms.

International Workshop on Attacks and Defenses for Internet-of-Things  (ADIoT) will focus on IoT attacks and defenses, and seek original submissions that discuss either practical or theoretical solutions to identify IoT vulnerabilities and IoT security mechanisms.

Note - The selected best papers will have a chance to be included in a special issue on IoT security of Journal of Information Security and Applications (JISA) and Wireless Communications and Mobile Computing (WCMC).

Topics of interest include, but are not limited to the ones listed below.

  • Malware and unwanted software for IoT
  • Vulnerability analysis and reverse engineering for IoT
  • IoT security and privacy
  • IoT forensic techniques
  • Usable security and privacy for IoT
  • Intrusion detection and prevention for IoT
  • Cyber intelligence techniques for IoT
  • IoT infrastructures and mitigation techniques
  • IoT Hardware security
  • Cyber physical systems security
  • Adversarial learning for IoT
  • IoT Cyber crime
  • Denial-of-Service attacks for IoT
  • Security measurement for IoT
  • IoT security visualization techniques
  • Edge/Fog computing attack and defense

Submission Instructions:
All submitted papers must contain only original work, which has not been published by or is currently under review for any other journal or conference. All submissions must be written in English with a maximum paper length of 9 pages (10-point font) using the two-column IEEE conference format. The workshop will also consider short papers of 5 pages (10-point font). Accepted papers must be presented by an author (or a substitute non-author presenter approved by the workshop chair prior to the workshop) in order to be included in the final IEEE CNS Proceeding.

Papers should be submitted using EDAS submission system. The submission link is here.

Important Dates:
Submission Deadline: March 5, 2018 (Hard)
Acceptance Notification: March 26, 2018
Camera Ready: April 2, 2018
