Special Track - Trust in FinTech
Throughout the history of human civilizations, financial transactions between individuals or groups have been underpinned by “trust”. Yet, the complex multi-party interactions in distributed ledger technologies and smart contracts are often overlooked and passed on as ‘trustless’. The financial industry is in a rush to adopt new technologies based on machine learning and distributed ledgers. This is to support authentication and identity management, payment methods and processing, continuous insurance, cross-border trading, regulatory compliance and so on – the FinTech revolution – with mostly emerging economies leading the process. Furthermore, the rising awareness of personal data privacy and the emergence of the personal data economy is opening a new paradigm that reshapes our very understanding of the existing financial infrastructure. The engineering of these systems must factor in trust modelling such that machine-to-machine and human-to-machine interactions are based on trust cues that are accountable and explicable. The topics of interest in this special track include
• trust, risk, and reputation in smart contracts
• smart contracts and the law
• trust in distributed consensus
• accountability, trust, and risk in machine learning decisions, e.g., authentication, continuous insurance
• privacy in distributed ledgers
• privacy and risk in personal data containers and analysis
• human-machine trust in human-centered systems, e.g., seamless payment systems
• privacy, risk, and trust in edge computing enabled infrastructures, e.g., ‘fog’ computing, IoTs backed by cloud backends
• privacy and financial transparency
IFIPTM 2018 welcomes submissions of both full and short papers on any topic related to the IFIPTM themes of trust, security and privacy and the topics mentioned above. Submitted full papers must not exceed 16 pages in length, including bibliography and well-marked appendices; short papers must not exceed 8 pages in length. Interdisciplinary and multidisciplinary papers are encouraged and welcome. Submission will be through the EasyChair conference management system. Papers must be submitted as a single PDF file, formatted using the LNCS format as described in the Springer LNCS author instructions.
As previous editions, papers will be published by Springer under the IFIP AICT series.
Submit at https://easychair.org/conferences/?conf=ifiptm2018
Authors of selected papers will be invited to extend and improve their contributions for a special issue of the Web Intelligence journal (IOS Press).
Paper submission: February 14, 2018 (Extended: March 02, 2018)
Author notification: April 06, 2018
Camera-ready version: April 24, 2018
Conference dates: July 9-13, 2018
***Workshop and Tutorial***
IFIPTM 2018 invites proposals for the Workshop and Tutorial Programs.
Workshops should stimulate and facilitate an atmosphere of active and constructive exchange on current issues of interest. They should allow members of the community to compare and discuss approaches, methods, and concepts about specific topics addressed by the conference. Workshops may address new emerging areas of interest for Trust Management that in the future may become core, focus on industrial experience with methods and technologies related to Trust Management or address peripheral issues of interest to the Trust Management research community.
Tutorials should allow members of the community to interactively gain specialist knowledge or skills, discover new paradigms, solutions or research investigations through motivating examples, compare existing approaches and concepts, and possibly explain how these can be put into current of future practice. In practice, tutorials should serve one or more of the following objectives:
• Survey, explain and discuss: research works and projects, industrial products and markets or governmental frameworks and policies
• Provide instruction in established but specialized Trust Management methodologies
• Present a novel synthesis combining distinct lines of work in Trust Management
Tutorials should cover a varied range of issues and not be used to promote a single research approach or a product
Workshop Proposal Submission: February 21, 2018 (Extended: March 09, 2018)
Accept Notification: March 23, 2018
Tutorial Proposal Submission: April 7, 2018
Accept Notification: April 21, 2018
***Poster and Demonstration***
IFIPTM 2018 welcomes submissions of DEMONSTRATIONS of tools and submissions of POSTERS that focus on any relevant topic under the theme Trust, Security and Privacy. Demonstrations should exhibit new research results and projects, industrial products, explore new business models, or illustrate new governmental frameworks and policies. They should allow members of the community to interactively discover and explore new paradigms or solutions through motivated examples.
Posters can present any relevant study, idea or project and can include student projects (Bachelor, Master's or PhD).
Proposals for demonstrations or posters must be one page, written in English and formatted using the LNCS format.
Abstract submission due: March 15, 2018
Notification of acceptance: April 3, 2018
Revised abstract due: May 15, 2018
***IFIPTM 2018 Graduate Symposium***
The IFIPTM 2018 Graduate Symposium will feature a highly interactive program that allows internationally renowned researchers and students at any stage of their graduate career to discuss the research, open issues, and state of the art in the field of Computational Trust and Trust Management. The symposium combines lectures by researchers attending the main conference and presentations of work by the graduate students attending the symposium. The Symposium will be a full day event on Monday 9 July.
Participation in the Graduate Symposium is open to all interested students, researchers, and practitioners. We do, however encourage all prospective participants to submit an extended abstract (maximum 2 pages in the Springer Verlag LNCS format) for discussion during the workshop. This extended abstract could focus on the students own work, work planned or possible research directions considered by the student, or interesting/intriguing work on computational trust and trust management that the student wishes to discuss. Extended abstracts will be collected in a bound volume (with ISSN) that will be handed out to all participants at the graduate symposium.
The Symposium lectures are given by experts in the field, exploring the theory, philosophy and practice of Trust and Trust Management and its application to society and science. There will be ample opportunity to network with presenters and other students during student presentations, interactive sessions and breaks.
Please submit extended abstracts to the Graduate Symposium Chair Christian Damsgaard Jensen by email with "IFIPTM" in the beginning of the subject line to Christian.Jensen@imm.dtu.dk(mailto:Christian.Jensen@imm.dtu.dk).
Deadline for submission of the extended abstract to be considered for publication is March 15 2018.
Abstract submission due: April 30, 2018
Notification of acceptance: May 18, 2018
Revised abstract due: June 1, 2018
