[DMANET] [CFP]: 2nd Joint Workshop on CPS&IoT Security and Privacy (CPSIoTSec 2021)

C a l l F o r P a p e r s

2nd Joint Workshop on CPS&IoT Security and Privacy (CPSIoTSec 2021)

Seoul, South Korea, November 15 (Monday), 2021


co-located with the ACM Conference on Computer and Communications
Security (ACM CCS 2021)



The Joint Workshop on CPS&IoT Security and Privacy invites academia,
industry, and governmental entities to submit:

- Original research papers on the security and privacy of CPS&IoT
- Systematization of Knowledge (SoK) papers on the security and privacy
of CPS&IoT
- Demos (hands-on or videos) of testbeds/experiences of CPS&IoT security
and privacy research

We seek submissions from multiple interdisciplinary backgrounds tackling
security and privacy issues in CPS&IoT,
including but not limited to:

- Mathematical foundations for secure CPS/IoT
- Control-theoretic approaches
- High assurance security architectures
- Security and resilience metrics
- Metrics and risk assessment approaches
- Identity and access management
- Privacy and trust
- Network security
- Game theory applied to CPS/IoT security
- Human factors, humans in the loop, and usable security
- Understanding dependencies among security, reliability and safety in
- Economics of security and privacy
- Intrusion and anomaly detection
- Model-based security systems engineering
- Sensor and actuator attacks
- CPS/IoT malware analysis
- CPS/IoT firmware analysis
- Hardware-assisted CPS/IoT security

Also of interest will be papers that can point the research community to
new research directions, and those that
can set research agendas and priorities in CPS/IoT security and privacy.
There will be a best paper award.


Submissions include long papers (12 pages), short papers (6 pages), and
abstracts (1 page):

- Long papers include a) Original research on a CPS/IoT security and
privacy topic, b) Systematization of Knowledge of CPS/IoT security and
- Short papers include original work-in-progress research on a CPS/IoT
security and privacy topic; and
- 1-page abstracts include demos/interesting findings/insights on
CPS/IoT security and privacy, which will be accompanied by a hands-on
demo during the workshop.

Submitted papers must include appendices and references (except for SoK
papers where references are excluded).

Submissions must use the ACM SIG Proceedings Templates (see,
with a simpler version here: Only PDF
files will be accepted.

Accepted papers will be published by the ACM Press and/or the ACM
Digital Library. Submissions must not substantially overlap
with papers that have been published or that are simultaneously
submitted to a journal or a conference with proceedings. Each
accepted paper must be presented by a registered author. Submissions not
meeting these guidelines risk immediate rejection.
For questions about these policies, please contact the chairs.

NEW FOR 2021: The workshop will feature a second paper submission
deadline for papers that have been submitted but not accepted to the
main conference.
The deadline will be 10 days after the paper notification is out.
Authors are not required to upload CCS reviews; verification of CCS
submission status will be done
by informing the program chairs of the paper ID of the CCS submission.

Paper submission site:


- Submission deadline: June 25, 2021 (23:59 Anywhere on Earth).
- Submission deadline applicable only to papers rejected from ACM CCS
2021: July 30, 2021 (23:59 Anywhere on Earth).
- Notification of acceptance/rejection (tentative): August 13, 2021.
