Call For Papers

As the traditionally segregated systems are brought online for next-generation connected applications, we have an opportunity to significantly improve the safety of legacy systems. For instance, insights from data across systems can be exploited to reduce accidents, improve air quality and support disaster events. Cyber-physical systems (CPS) also bring new risks that arise due to the unexpected interaction between systems. These safety risks arise because of information that distracts users while driving, software errors in medical devices, corner cases in data-driven control, compromised sensors in drones or conflicts in societal policies.

Accordingly, the Internet of Safe Things workshop (or SafeThings, for brevity) seeks to bring researchers and practitioners that are actively exploring system design, modeling, verification, authentication approaches to provide safety guarantees in the Internet of Things (IoT). The workshop welcomes contributions that integrate hardware and software systems provided by disparate vendors, particularly those that have humans in the loop. As safety is inherently linked with the security and privacy, we welcome contributions that address safety concerns in these areas as well. With the SafeThings workshop, we seek to develop a community that systematically dissects the vulnerabilities and risks exposed by these emerging CPSes, and create tools, algorithms, frameworks and systems that help in the development of safe systems.

SafeThings workshop covers safety topics as it relates to an individual’s health (physical, mental), the society (air pollution, toxicity, disaster events), or the environment (species preservation, global warming, oil spills). The workshop considers safety from a human perspective, and thus, does not include topics such as thread safety or memory safety in its scope.

Our workshop will cover, but not limit itself to, the following subject categories:

Verification of safety in IoT platforms

Privacy preserving data sharing and analysis

Compliance with legal, health and environmental policies

Integration of hardware and software systems

Conflict resolution between IoT applications

Safety in human-in-the-loop systems

Support for IoT development - debugging tools, emulators, testbeds

Usable security and privacy for IoT platforms

Resiliency against attacks and faults

Secure connectivity in IoT

Our workshop will cover, but not limit itself to, the following domains: autonomous vehicles and transportation infrastructure; medical CPS and public health; smart buildings, smart grid and smart cities.

Call for Posters and Demos
If you would like to share a provocative opinion, an interesting preliminary work, or a cool idea that will spark discussion about IoT safety, the poster and demo section is a perfect venue to introduce new or ongoing work. Poster and demo presenters will have the opportunity to discuss their work, get exposure, and receive feedback from attendees.

Submission Instructions
Submitted papers must be unpublished and must not be currently under review for any other publication. Submissions for full papers must be at most 6 single-spaced, double column 8.5” x 11” pages and follow the official ACM SIG Proceedings format. Submissions for Posters and Demos must be at most 1 single-spaced, double column 8.5” x 11” page and also follow the official ACM SIG Proceedings format. All figures, references, and appendices must fit within these limits. Paper reviewing is single-blind and submissions should list author names on the front page. Papers that do not meet the size and formatting requirements will not be reviewed. All papers must be in Adobe Portable Document Format (PDF) and submitted through the web submission form. Official ACM SIG Proceedings templates for Latex and Word are available here. Please do not modify any spacing parameters. Please refer to publication chair's Note as well as the User Guide of the new class. Accepted submissions will be available in the ACM digital library on the first day of the conference.

Full Papers: 6 pages

Posters and Demos: 1 page
