* Security and Privacy in Emerging Scenarios

2nd International Forum on Research and Technologies for Society
and Industry (RTSI 2016)
Bologna, Italy, 7-9 September 2016

RTSI 2016 is Organized by the IEEE Italy Section and Alma Mater
Studiorum - Universita' di Bologna, Italy.
The primary purposes of the RTSI series of events are:
- to promote and to strengthen partnerships and cooperation between
academia and industry;
- to increase the public understanding and awareness of how engineering
and technology can positively affect people quality of life;
- to promote discussion between the research community and related
government bodies about effective and successful research policies;
- to disseminate recent advancements, research/technology solutions,
and novel applications;
- to discuss inter-disciplinary ideas and to promote cross-fertilizing
cooperation between researchers working in different research areas.

(Chair: Marco Santambrogio - Politecnico di Milano)
As the push for parallelism and adaptability continues to increase
the complexity of computing systems, system design has become
incredibly complex; optimizing for performance and power efficiency
is now nearly impossible for the application programmer.
To assist the programmer, a variety of techniques for optimizing
performance and power at runtime have been developed, but many
employ the use of speculative threads or performance counters.
These approaches result in stolen cycles, or the use of an extra
core, and such expensive penalties can greatly reduce the potential
gains. Within this context imagine a revolutionary computing system
that can observe its own execution and optimize its behavior around
a user's or application's needs. Imagine a programming capability
by which users can specify their desired goals rather than how to
perform a task, along with constraints in terms of an energy
budget, a time constraint, or simply a preference for an approximate
answer over an exact answer. Imagine further a computing system that
performs better according to a user's preferred goal the longer it
runs an application. Such an architecture will enable, for example,
a handheld radio or a cell phone that can run cooler the longer the
connection time. Or, a system that can perform reliably and
continuously in a range of environments by tolerating hard and
transient failures through self healing. Adaptive computing systems
are the key technology to succeed in doing this. They will be able
to configure, heal, optimize, improve interaction and protect
themselves without the need for human intervention, exploiting
abilities that allow them to automatically find the best way to
accomplish a given goal with the resources at hand. Within this
context, imagine a revolutionary computing system that can observe
its own execution and optimize its behavior around the external
environment, user's and application's needs. Research in adaptive
computing systems leverages the new balance of resources to improve
performance, utilization, reliability and programmability.
Within this context, the proposed session is intended to present
innovative works in this challenging area.

(Chair: Sara Foresti - Universita' degli Studi di Milano)
The recent evolution of ICT enables people to perform tasks and access
data/services anywhere at any time, since people (and things) can
always be connected to the Internet. These emerging scenarios provide
unprecedented advantages for final users, which however come at the
price of novel security and privacy risks. Today, more and more data
are stored and elaborated in the cloud (under the control of a third
party), home and personal appliances are accessible form outside
(making them more vulnerable to attacks), sensors track users'
locations and activities (and exchange data). These are only a few
examples of how emerging scenarios are changing the security and
privacy risks to which we are exposed. This technical session aims
to bring together researchers and practitioners interested in
discussing and finding solutions to the security and privacy issues
characterizing emerging scenarios.

Submission of draft papers: 29 March 2016
Notification of acceptance: 28 April 2016
Final submission: 10 June 2016
Early registration: 11 July 2016

Prospective Authors of papers are invited to submit a draft paper
(typically 2-4 pages for the draft version, 4-6 pages for the final
paper, in standard IEEE two-column format) via EDAS by suggesting the
related Technical Session.
The paper should contain a complete description of the proposed
technical contribution along with some results, suitably framed
in the related state of the art.
Each paper will be reviewed in terms of relevance
with respect to the scope of the event, originality and quality of
the technical content, overall organization and writing style.
Papers must be prepared according to the Author’s instructions
reported on the RTSI 2016.

Submission of papers implies intention to register and present the
related content at the conference. Proceedings papers presented at
the Conference will be submitted for inclusion in the IEEE Xplore
digital library.
