Call For Papers

Cloud computing is today the reference paradigm for large-scale data
storage and processing due to the convenient and efficient network
access to configurable resources that can be easily adjusted according
to the users’ needs. Although the benefits of cloud computing are
tremendous, security and privacy concerns have still a detrimental
impact on the adoption and acceptability of cloud services. In fact,
users as well as companies that rely on cloud storage and computation
services lose the direct control over the systems managing their data
and applications, thus putting the confidentiality, integrity and
availability of the data at risk. The goal of this workshop is to
bring together researchers and practitioners who are interested in
discussing the security, privacy, and data protection issues emerging
in cloud scenarios, and possible solutions to them.

The workshop seeks submissions from academia, industry, and government
presenting novel research, as well as experimental studies, on all
theoretical and practical aspects of security, privacy, and data
protection in cloud scenarios. Topics of interest include, but are not
limited to:

- Anonymity in cloud scenarios
- Applied cryptography in cloud scenarios
- Cloud-based biometric systems
- Data and application security
- Data and system integrity
- Data availability in outsourcing scenarios
- Data protection
- Efficient access to outsourced data
- Key management in cloud scenarios
- Privacy
- Privacy of accesses
- Secure computation over encrypted data
- Security and trust metrics
- Security and privacy in crowdsourcing
- Security and privacy in multi-clouds and federated clouds
- Security and privacy in data outsourcing
- Security and privacy in the Internet of Things
- Security and privacy of big data
- Security and privacy of distributed computations
- Security and privacy of fog computing
- Security and privacy policies
- Selective information sharing
- Threats, vulnerabilities, and risk management

Submitted papers must not substantially overlap papers that have
been published or that are simultaneously submitted to a journal
or a conference with proceedings. Submissions should be at most 9
pages in the IEEE 8.5”x11” two-column format (template available at
Submissions should not be anonymized. The workshop will also consider
short submissions of up to 4 pages for results that are preliminary
or that simply require few pages. Papers should be submitted for
review through EDAS ( Only PDF files will
be accepted. Submissions not meeting these guidelines risk rejection
without consideration of their merits. Papers must be received by the
deadline of April 17, 2020 (11:59 p.m. American Samoa time). Authors
of accepted papers must guarantee that their papers will be presented
at the workshop. Accepted and presented papers will be included in
the IEEE CNS 2020 conference proceedings and also in IEEE Xplore.
