Call for Papers (PDF)

Smart computing aims at improving quality of life and experience in modern society represents the next wave of computing. Key technologies for realizing smart computing include sensing, IoTs, mobile and pervasive computing, cyber-physical-social systems, big data, machine learning, data analytics, social and cognitive computing. Smart computing helps to 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 include security, privacy, reliability, resiliency, robustness, and efficiency. Indeed, to boost the development of big data applications in smart computing, data security and data traceability as well as efficiency are extremely important.

After successful previously held three IEEE International Workshops on Big Data and IoT Security in Smart Computing (IEEE BITS2017/2018/2019/2020/2021), the 6th workshop, IEEE BITS2022, will be held focussing on theories and implementations on security, privacy, reliability, resiliency, and robustness secure computing and efficient data management in Cloud/IoT environment. BITS is a full-day workshop that is going to be organized in conjunction in conjunction with the 8th IEEE International Conference on Smart Computing (SmartComp2022) on June, 2022.

The topics to be addressed at BITS2022 will include, but not limited to, theoretical or practical aspects of big data and IoT in smart computing and cyber-physical systems. Papers describing experience on real prototype implementations are also welcome. Submissions should be targeted to one of the following sub-topics:

  • Anonymity for big data
  • Big data management and its efficiency in Smart Computing
  • Cloud security and privacy policies
  • Data traceability for big data
  • Distributed systems security
  • Encryption theory and its implementations for big data
  • IoT services and applications in Smart Computing
  • Legal study for big data
  • Machine learning in Smart Computing
  • Privacy risk assessment
  • Secure computation for big data
  • Security management
  • Side-channel attacks in Smart Computing
  • Trust, security, privacy, and data provenance issues in Smart Computing
  • Privacy issues for big data
  • Security and privacy issues in various smart computing applications such as transportation, energy, environmental, smart city, healthcare, and social media
