Welcome

The 1st IEEE International Workshop on Big Data and IoT Security in Smart Computing (IEEE BITS 2017) IEEE BITS is a full-day workshop that is goig to be organized in conjunction with IEEE SMARTCOMP 2017.

Introduction

Smart computing aims at improving quality of life and experience in modern society represents the next wave of computing. Key technologies contributing to the realization of smart connected communities include sensing, IoTs, mobile and pervasive computing, cyber-physical-social systems, big data, machine learning, data analytics, social and cognitive computing. Smart computing help solve a wide variety of societal challenges related to transportation, energy, healthcare, finance, disaster management, and so on. At the core of all such systems, critical issues are security, privacy, reliability, resiliency, and robustness.

The objective of this workshop is to provide a lively forum to exchange cutting-edge ideas, present results, share experience, and enhance collaborations among researchers, professionals, and application developers in various aspects of security and privacy of big data and IoT in the context of smart computing.

Scope of Interest and Objective

Smart computing aims at improving quality of life and experience in modern society represents the next wave of computing. Key technologies contributing to the realization of smart connected communities include sensing, IoTs, mobile and pervasive computing, cyber-physical-social systems, big data, machine learning, data analytics, social and cognitive computing. Smart computing help solve a wide variety of societal challenges related to transportation, energy, healthcare, finance, disaster management, and so on.

At the core of all such systems and applications, critical issues are security privacy, reliability, resiliency, and robustness. Indeed to boost the development of big data applications in smart computing, data security and data traceability as well as privacy are extremely important. For example, data security such as secure computation with fully homomorphic encryption and data traceability with both proof of storage and attribute-based encryption become indispensable.

The objective of this workshop is to provide a lively forum to exchange cutting-edge ideas, present results, share experience, and enhance collaborations among researchers, professionals, and application developers in various aspects of security and privacy of big data and IoT in the context of smart computing.

Topics

Original papers are solicited addressing both theoretical and practical aspects of big data and IoT security and privacy in smart computing and cyber-physical systems. Papers describing experience on real prototype implementations are also welcome. Topics of interest include, but not limited to:

  • Anonymity for big data
  • Cryptology for big data (Fully Homomorphic Encryption, Proof of Storage, Attribute-based Encryption, etc.)
  • Computer architecture to speed-up secure computation
  • Cloud security (Security and privacy policies)
  • Data traceability for big data
  • Distributed systems security
  • Government funded projects in the area of data security and data traceability
  • Legal study for handling big data
  • Privacy risk assessment
  • Secure computation for big data
  • Secure information flow
  • Security management
  • Trust, security, privacy, and data provenance issues in Smart Computing
  • Security and privacy issues in various smart computing applications such as transportation, energy, environmental, smart city, healthcare, and social media
Submission Guidelines

Paper submissions should be no longer than 6 pages (including references) and formatted according to the IEEE conference template. Papers must be submitted electronically as PDF files through EasyChair by selecting BITS2017 track.

All submitted papers will be subject to peer reviews by Technical Program Committee members and other experts in the field. All presented papers will be published in the SmartComp2017 conference proceedings and submitted to the IEEE Xplore Digital Library. All accepted papers will be EI indexed.
