Workshop on research advances in Cooperative ITS cyber security and privacy (C-ITSec)

Call for Papers for the first International Workshop on research advances in Cooperative ITS cyber security and privacy (C-ITSec)

In conjunction with the VTC Spring 2018
June 3, 2018, Porto, Portugal

General description

Security and privacy are attractive research topics in the field of Cooperative Intelligent Transportation Systems (C-ITS). Recent attacks on security and privacy, which disrupt the C- ITS, create several challenges that have to be addressed by the research community. Example of these challenges are robust misbehavior detection and reporting, lightweight and agile security schemes, robust cryptographic algorithms, etc. At the standardization level, many efforts have been also made to speed up the deployment of security and privacy architectures and solutions.
C-ITSec will provide an international technical forum for discussing and presenting recent research results on any aspects of cyber security defense techniques, recent C-ITS attacks and latest Enhancing Privacy Technologies for C-ITS. It aims at bringing together experts from industry and academia to share ideas and present research results on challenging issues related to cyber security and privacy in vehicular communication. Papers may present theories, techniques, applications, or practical experiences related to that.

Topics of interest for this workshop include, but are not limited to:

  • C-ITS security architectures
  • Privacy-Enhancing Technologies
  • Misbehavior detection and reporting
