Call For Papers

The 14th International Workshop on Cyberspace Security and Artificial Intelligence (CAI-2022)
To be held in conjunction with IEEE TrustCom-2022, 28-30 October 2022, Wuhan, China

- One Best Workshop Paper Award will be selected.
- Paper submission deadline: 1 July 2022

With the fast development of 5G/6G, Internet of Things (IoT), Cloud/Edge Computing, and Industry 4.0/5.0, Cyberspace Security is of paramount importance and has become a burning issue that may hinder the deployment of many innovative business models. Artificial Intelligence (AI) has been penetrated into many sectors, e.g., manufacturing, energy and health, to facilitate automation on trust, security, resilience and reliability. In addition, many of the applications in these sectors, such as self-driving cars and remote surgery, are critical and high stakes applications. The opaque decision making, and bias and ethical issues of AI challenge the safety of these applications. Cyberspace Safety has therefore been attracting significant attention in recent years.

This workshop will address the important problems and challenges caused by both AI for Cyberspace Security and Cyberspace Security for AI. The workshop aims to bring together computer scientists and engineers in different disciplines to share and exchange their experience and ideas and discuss state-of-the-art and in-progress research on all aspects of cyberspace security and AI.

This CAI workshop stemmed from the International Workshop on Security in e-Science and e-Research (ISSR). This year's event has the core theme of AI-powered Cyberspace Security and Safety, previously held as CAI-21 (held in New York, USA, in conjunction with ISPA 2021), ISSR-20 (held in Nanjing, China, in conjunction with SpaCCS 2020), ISSR-19 (held in Atlanta, USA, in conjunction with SpaCCS 2019), ISSR-18 (held in Melbourne, Australia, in conjunction with SpaCCS 2018), ISSR-17 (held in Guangzhou, China, in conjunction with SpaCCS 2017), ISSR-16 (held in Zhangjiajie, China, in conjunction with SpaCCS 2016), ISSR-15 (held in Columbus, USA, in conjunction with IEEE ICDCS-15), ISSR-14 (held in Vasteras, Sweden, in conjunction with IEEE COMPSAC-14), ISSR-13 (held in Melbourne, Australia, in conjunction with IEEE TrustCom-13), ISSR-12 (held in Liverpool, UK, in conjunction with IEEE TrustCom-12), ISSR-11 (held in Changsha, China, in conjunction with IEEE TrustCom-11), ISSR-10 (held in Taipei, Taiwan, in conjunction with IEEE ISPA-10) and ISSR-09 (held in Chengdu, China, in conjunction with IEEE ISPA-09).

We solicit original papers reporting a wide spectrum of topics related to cyberspace security and AI. Topics of interest include but are not limited to:

- Explainable machine learning for cyberspace security and safety

Paper Submission Guideline
Prospective authors are invited to submit manuscripts reporting original unpublished research and recent developments in the topics related to the workshop. The length of the papers should not exceed 6 pages + up to 4 pages for overlength charges (IEEE Computer Society Proceedings Manuscripts style: two columns, single-spaced, 10-point font), including figures and references.

The template files for LATEX or WORD can be downloaded:

Papers should be submitted through the EDAS -

All papers will be peer reviewed and the comments will be provided to the authors. Once accepted, the paper will be included into the IEEE conference proceedings published by IEEE Computer Society Press (indexed by EI).

Submission of a paper should be regarded as an undertaking that, should the paper be accepted, at least one of the authors will register for the conference and present the work.
