Call For Papers

[Call for Papers]
Federated learning (FL) is one promising machine learning approach that trains a collective machine learning model using sharing data owned by various parties. It leverages many emerging privacy-reserving technologies (SMC, Homomorphic Encryption, differential privacy, etc.) to protect data owner privacy in FL. It has been gained popularity in some domains such as image classification, speech recognition, smart city, and healthcare. However, FL also faces multiple challenges that may potentially limit its applications in real-world use scenarios. For example, FL is still at the risk of various kinds of attacks that may result in leakage of individual data source privacy or degraded joint model accuracy. In other words, many existing FL solutions are still exposed to various security and privacy threats. This workshop aims to bring together FL researchers and practitioners to address the additional security and privacy threats and challenges in FL To make its mass adoption and widespread acceptance in the community. For example, privacy-specific threats in FL, training/inference phase attacks; data poisoning, model poisoning, how to handle Non-IID data without affecting the model performance, lacking trust from the FL participant, how to gain confidence by interpreting FL model, scheme of contributions and rewards to FL participants for improving an FL model, social and corporate responsibility towards the adoption of FL, imbalance data among FL participants, methods to verify and proof the correctness of FL computation, etc. The discussion in the workshop can lead implementing FL solutions that are more accurate, robust and interpretable, gain the trust of the FL participants.

Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:
- Interpretable Federated Learning
- Trade-Off between Privacy-Preserving and Explainable Federated Learning
- Federated Learning Multi-Party Computation
- Federated Learning Homomorphic Encryption
- Federated Learning Differential Privacy
- Federated Transfer Learning
- Federated Learning Personalization Techniques
- Federated Learning Attacks and Defenses
- Federated Learning Blockchain Network
- Federated Learning Secure Aggregation
- Federated Learning Fairness and Accuracy
- Federated Learning with Non-IID Data
- Federated Learning Incentive Mechanism
- Federated Learning Meets Mean-Field Game Theory
- Federated Learning-based Corporate Social Responsibility
- Social Responsible Federated Learning
- Decentralized Federated Learning
- Vertical Federated Learning
