Workshops

The purpose of workshops is to provide a more interactive and focused platform for presenting and discussing new and emerging ideas. The format of paper presentations may include oral presentations, poster presentations, keynote lectures and panels. Depending on the number of presentations, workshops can be scheduled for 1 day or 2 days. All accepted papers will be published in a special section of the conference proceedings book, under an ISBN reference, and on CD-ROM support. All papers presented at the conference venue will be available at the SCITEPRESS Digital Library. SCITEPRESS is a member of CrossRef and every paper is given a DOI (Digital Object Identifier). The proceedings are submitted for indexation by Thomson Reuters Conference Proceedings Citation Index (ISI), INSPEC, DBLP, EI (Elsevier Engineering Village Index) and Scopus.

Workshop proposals are accepted until:

November 23, 2017


If you wish to propose a new Workshop please kindly fill out and submit this Expression of Interest form.

Scope

Cyber-attackers are steadily getting more creative and ambitious in their exploits and causing real-world damage (e.g., the German steel mill attack in 2014, the Ukrainian Power Grid attack in 2015, the Mirai Botnet DDoS attacks of 2016 and onward, increasing ransomware attacks, etc.). Proprietary and personally identifiable information are vulnerable to leakage as well (e.g., the Sony hack in 2014, the US Office of Personnel Management in 2014). The Internet of Things (IoT), a platform which allows everything to process information, communicate data, and analyze context opens up new vulnerabilities for both security and privacy. Smart buildings and smart cities, for example, will collect and process data for millions of individuals. Industrial systems, which were never intended to be linked via common protocols, are recognized as suddenly being open to security threats that can limit service availability and possibly cause considerable damage. Autonomous systems allowed to operate with minimal oversight are ripe targets for cyber-attacks. Data stored and processed in confidence in the cloud may be subject to exfiltration, leading to public embarrassment or the exposure of proprietary information.  Ransomware has emerged in the public consciousness after multiple high-profile attacks, and many experts forecast that it will become a major threat to IoT and critical infrastructure in the very near future.

Scope

In recent years, the Internet of Things (IoT) and Big Data have grown at an exponential pace.
When coupled with the rise of wearable devices, the market is now ripe for use of miniature, wearable biosensors to personalize eHealth and mHealth services. These types of services will significantly increase availability and accessibility of health information, and allow patients to personalize and tailor how their health is managed and maintained. This innovation is not without its drawbacks. Many challenges related to consistency, safety, and reliability remain. In order to succeed in this technology, multidisciplinary research is needed, in addition to collaboration between academia and industry. This workshop will bring researchers and industrial partners together to examine the synergies of signal, data, and information processing.
Together, they will make important strides in the smart healthcare sector and work toward making eHealth accessible for all.
