Call For Papers

Welcome to participate in UbiSec 2022, Zhangjiajie, China, November 15 - 18, 2022! Zhangjiajie is an emerging tourist destination famous for its unique natural scenery and abundant tourism resources. It is located in the northwest of Hunan province, about 400 kilometers away from Changsha, the capital of Hunan province, covering a total area of 9,516 square kilometers, of which 76% are mountainous area. Out of its total population of 1.52 million, almost 77% belong to ethnic minority groups, including Tujia, Bai and Miao nationalities. Zhangjiajie National Forest Park was established by the State Council in 1982 as the first National Forest Park of China. Wulingyuan in Zhangjiajie was listed into the World Natural Heritage Catalogue by the UNESCO in 1992 and appraised as a national AAAAA scenic area. Zhangjiajie was awarded the title of "World Geological Park" in 2004. The amazing landscape here had been a source of creation of the CGI artist in the Avatar movie, and since the movie was released and achieved a great success, many tourists keeping coming to Zhangjiajie admiring this natural beauty.

The Second International Conference on Ubiquitous Security (UbiSec 2022) stems from three conference/symposium/workshop series:

(1) The well-established SpaCCS conference series with Springer LNCS: UbiSec is inspired by the SpaCCS style of three tracks (Security, Privacy, and Anonymity, "Spa" for short), which covers "Big Security" leveraging computation, communication and storage ("CCS" for short) systems and networks. UbiSec extends this style with three new tracks: Cyberspace Security, Cyberspace Privacy, and Cyberspace Anonymity.

(2) The UbiSafe symposium series: UbiSec follows the UbiSafe vision on "Ubiquitous Safety", also meaning that "YOU (will) BE SAFE" (pronounced "UbiSafe"). UbiSec extends this vision to "Ubiquitous Security", using "Big Security" to embrace NOT ONLY security, privacy and anonymity, BUT ALSO safety, reliability, dependability, trustworthiness and more, also meaning that "YOU (will) BE SEC(ure)" (pronounced "UbiSec").

(3) The IWCSS workshop series: UbiSec follows the IWCSS theme on "Cyberspace Security", with "Cyberspace" as the 5th national sovereign space besides the traditional four domains of land, sea, air, and aerospace. UbiSec extends this theme to "Ubiquitous Security", meaning that cyberspace will be secure, physical world will be secure, social networking systems will be secure, and thus "YOU (will) BE SECure"!

The UbiSec 2022 Conference ("The Conference" for short) is the second event in the series of conferences/symposia/workshops which are devoted to security, privacy and anonymity in cyberspace, physical world, and social networks. The Conference covers many dimensions including security algorithms and architectures, privacy-aware policies, regulations and techniques, anonymous computation and communication, encompassing fundamental theoretical approaches, practical experimental projects, and commercial application systems for cyberspace, physical world, and social networking systems. As applications of computer and information technology have permeated in every aspect of our daily life, the issues of security, privacy, and anonymity have become increasingly critical. The Conference will provide a forum for world-class researchers to gather and share their research achievements, emerging ideas and trends in the highly challenging research fields.

UbiSec 2022 follows the UbiSec 2021 conference in Guangzhou and also the traditions of previous successful SpaCCS/UbiSafe/IWCSS conference/symposium/workshop series, held in Nanjing, China (SpaCCS 2020/UbiSafe 2020), Guangzhou, China (IWCSS 2020); Altanta, USA (SpaCCS 2019/UbiSafe 2019), Guangzhou, China (IWCSS 2019); Melbourne, Australia (SpaCCS 2018/UbiSafe 2018), Guangzhou China (IWCSS 2018); Guangzhou, China (SpaCCS 2017/UbiSafe 2017/IWCSS 2017); Zhangjiajie, China (SpaCCS 2016/UbiSafe 2016); Helsinki, Finland (UbiSafe 2015); Beijing, China (UbiSafe 2014); Melbourne, Australia (UbiSafe 2013); Liverpool, UK (UbiSafe 2012); Changsha, China (UbiSafe 2011); Chengdu China (UbiSafe 2009); and Niagara Falls, Canada (UbiSafe 2007). The conference aims at bringing together researchers and practitioners in the world working in the research fields of security, privacy, and anonymity aspects of computer systems and networks. The conference will focus on broad areas of architectures, algorithms, techniques, and applications for cyberspace security, cyberspace privacy, and cyberspace anonymity.
