Call For Papers
CALL FOR PAPERS
5th IEEE Workshop on Security and Privacy in the Cloud (SPC 2019)
Washington, DC, USA, June 12, 2019
Cloud computing is today the reference paradigm for large-scale data
storage and processing due to the convenient and efficient network
access to configurable resources that can be easily adjusted according
to the users’ needs. Although the benefits of cloud computing are
tremendous, security and privacy concerns have still a detrimental
impact on the adoption and acceptability of cloud services.
In fact, users as well as companies that rely on cloud storage and
computation services lose the direct control over the systems
managing their data and applications, thus putting the
confidentiality, integrity and availability of the data at risk.
The goal of this workshop is to bring together researchers and
practitioners who are interested in discussing the security,
privacy, and data protection issues emerging in cloud scenarios,
and possible solutions to them.
SPC 2019 is the fifth workshop in this series and will be held
in Washington, DC, USA, on June 12, in conjunction with the
IEEE Conference on Communications and Network Security
(IEEE CNS 2019).
The workshop seeks submissions from academia, industry, and
government presenting novel research, as well as experimental
studies, on all theoretical and practical aspects of security,
privacy, and data protection in cloud scenarios.
Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:
- Anonymity in cloud scenarios
- Applied cryptography in cloud scenarios
- Cloud-based biometric systems
- Data and application security
- Data and system integrity
- Data availability in outsourcing scenarios
- Data protection
- Efficient access to outsourced data
- Key management in cloud scenarios
- Privacy of accesses
- Secure computation over encrypted data
- Security and trust metrics
- Security and privacy in crowdsourcing
- Security and privacy in multi-clouds and federated clouds
- Security and privacy in data outsourcing
- Security and privacy in the Internet of Things
- Security and privacy of big data
- Security and privacy of distributed computations
- Security and privacy of fog computing
- Security and privacy policies
- Selective information sharing
- Threats, vulnerabilities, and risk management
Submitted papers must not substantially overlap papers that have
been published or that are simultaneously submitted to a journal
or a conference with proceedings. Submissions should be at most
9 pages in the IEEE 8,5"x11" two-column format
Font size should be no smaller than 10 points.
Submissions should not be anonymized.
The workshop will also consider short submissions of up to 4 pages
for results that are preliminary or that simply require few pages.
Papers should be submitted for review through EDAS
(https://edas.info/). Only PDF files will be accepted.
Submissions not meeting these guidelines risk rejection without
consideration of their merits. Papers must be received by the
deadline of March 15, 2019 (11:59 p.m. American Samoa time).
Authors of accepted papers must guarantee that their papers
will be presented at the workshop. Accepted and presented
papers will be included in the IEEE CNS 2019 conference
proceedings and also in IEEE Xplore as well as other Abstracting
and Indexing (A&I) databases.
Paper submission due: March 15, 2019
