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 also seek contributions in these areas that address safety concerns. 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:

* Adversarial machine learning and testing of IoT/CPS systems
* Authentication in IoT/CPS settings
* Compliance with legal, health, and environmental policies
* Conflict resolution between IoT applications
* Integration of hardware and software systems
* Managing device lifecycle (e.g., secure software updates and security of legacy devices)
* Privacy challenges in IoT/CPS settings
* Privacy preserving data sharing and analysis
* Resiliency against attacks and faults
* Safety in human-in-the-loop systems
* Secure connectivity in IoT
* Secure updates
* Support for IoT development - debugging tools, emulators, testbeds
* Usable security and privacy for IoT platforms
* Verification of safety in IoT platforms

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




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.
