CSNet 2023 - 7th Cyber Security in Networking Conference

on 16-10-2023

... After the first successful edition of CSNet 2017 in Rio de Janeiro (Brazil), the second edition CSNet 2018 in Paris (France), the third edition CSNet 2019 in Quito (Ecuador), CSNet 2020 in Lausanne (Switzerland) (Online), CSNet 2021 in Abu Dhabi (UAE) (Hybrid), CSNet 2022 in Brazil, the seventh edition of Cyber Security in Networking (CSNet) conference will be held in Montreal (Canada) next October 16 - 18, 2023.

The technological disruption is generating an impact on society and leading to a new industrial revolution. This social and industrial change presents new technological environments constituted by ubiquitous systems and large amounts of information, which requires a change in the way how cyber security is designed and developed. The use of artificial intelligence, machine learning, data mining, and data analytics provides additional tools for security analysts to face new forms of cybersecurity threats.

In today's highly connected world, networks and systems are expected to support a wide range of critical and vital services. The resiliency of such services, which includes cyber security, adaptability, and autonomy, will be a key driving factor for future networked systems.

Topics of interest for the CSNet 2023 conference include, but are not limited to:
* AI Technologies Applied to Cyber Security
* Attacks on Virtualized Systems
* Blockchain
* Cloud Security
* Cognitive Cyber Security
* Cyber-attacks & defense
* Cyber-Physical System (CPS) Security

IEEE 9th World Forum on Internet of Things - GROWS: 6G-empoweRed iOt netWorkS

on 12-10-2023

... The chairs Chairs Daniel Corujo, senior researcher at Instituto de Telecomunicações and University of Aveiro, Portugal, and Håkon Lønsethagen, Telenor Research, Norway are inviting submissions to the Special Session at the IEEE 9th World Forum on Internet of Things.

Like 5G before, 6G is being heralded as the most immersive capable communications architecture to be developed in the coming years. To support this, we have seen impressive displays of potential directions, technological advances, essential performance (and value) indicators, standards evolution, and partnerships being established to foment policy-making and research. Additionally, 6G can also pave new ways for a more streamlined experience, by more tightly coupling other kinds of network access such as Non-Terrestrial Networks, and by enabling radical new ways for communications in complex environments, such as maritime communications. But what does that mean for IoT? What will be the key enablers, the new scenarios and business opportunities? Will the enhancements allow the full-fledged realization of an enhanced cyber-physical world or just another incremental step towards such a vision? How do new worldwide concerns, such as environmental footprint, impact new technological designs? And what of IoT applications: what have key players learned from the radical changes by 5G, and which new requirements would they imprint over 6G? GROWS (6G-empoweRed iOt netWorkS) is a Special Session at 2023’s WFIoT, aiming to contribute with a concrete, holistic, multi-stakeholder vision on what 6G really means for IoT, by presenting new results, discussions, and prospect plans from different professionals from the full range of value chain.

GROWS will be looking for papers addressing the following:
- Efforts towards 6G standardization for IoT
- Proposals for 6G enhancements for radio, RAN, and core targeting IoT
- Seamless interconnection with non-terrestrial networks and mobile networks in IoT deployments, considering 5G outcomes and 6G prospects
- Proposals for new 6G-enabled architectures and their expected contribution/impact on IoT
- The contributions of supportive/complementary technologies such as virtualization, cloud, AI/ML, edge, federation, and others, for IoT-based scenarios
- Characterization and assessment of new IoT scenarios and industries enabled by 6G-capable IoT
- Comparison between the outcomes achieved by 5G-enabled IoT, and the prospects expected from 6G
- Evolution techniques and solutions for evolving 5G deployments towards 6G
- Energy-efficiency and sustainability aspects for 6G-enabled IoT
- Lessons learned from 5G-enabled IoT deployments and further requirements for 6G enhancements
- Contributions of 6G for maritime IoT-based scenarios
- Industrial vertical areas certification and regulation impact in upcoming 6G solutions

Important Dates:
- Deadline for Paper Submissions: July 9th, 2023
- Acceptance Notification: July 31st, 2023
- Deadline for Camera-Ready Paper Submissions: August 20th, 2023
- Deadline for Presentation Submissions: September 25th, 2023
