[DMANET] [Extended CFP] 4th International workshop in Artificial Intelligence and Industrial Internet-of-Things Security (AIoTS)

4th International workshop in Artificial Intelligence and Industrial
Internet-of-Things Security (AIoTS)

Co-located with ACNS2022 (June 20-23), Rome, Italy.

*** Best Paper Award: Two awards have been announced: 1) Best paper
award for the AIoTS 2022 workshop papers, and 2) Best paper award from
all the workshops, in which AIOTS workshop best paper shall compete with
other workshop's best paper. Moreover, the selected papers will be
invited to submit an extended version to the Frontiers in Communications
and Networks journal.

Workshop description:

In recent years, Artificial Intelligence (AI) has got a lot of
attention, especially, for the success of deep learning to address
problems that were considered hard before. Big players such as Google,
Amazon and Baidu are exploring the application of AI in different
markets like healthcare, FinTech and autonomous vehicles. Along with AI,
other technologies such Internet-of-Things (IoT) have boosted other
areas like the case of Industry 4.0, where through the adoption of
Industrial-IoT (IIoT) into the production chain companies want to have a
smarter manufacture that can be adapted to their customers' needs. The
accelerating adoption of new technologies brings new challenges
especially associated with the cybersecurity of the applications, where
confidentiality, integrity and availability of data are important.
Security incident in IIoT impacts the safety properties since
applications interact physically with people or other assets. The
intersection of AI and cybersecurity can be seen as a two-fold
relationship. On the one hand, AI techniques can be adopted to improve
the state-of-the-art of security solutions, while on the other hand,
cybersecurity can contribute to improving the study of the security of
AI algorithms through the exploration of adversarial machine learning.
This workshop aims to open a space where new research ideas from
different areas converge into the intersection of AI, IIoT,
Cyber-Physical Systems (CPS) and cybersecurity. We encourage researchers
and experts in the fields of AI, embedded systems, CPS and cybersecurity
to take the opportunity to use this workshop for sharing their work and
open the discussion of new ideas in this always-evolving topic.


AIoTS aims to cover various fields of application in the area of
security and privacy within the fields of artificial intelligence and
industrial IoT. Thus, suggested topics include, but are not limited to,
the following points:

Formal security and resilience analysis on AI and IIoT/CPS

Risk management and governance for AI and IIoT-based Application

AI-Assisted Critical Infrastructure Security

(Federated) Adversarial Machine Learning

AI for Detection, Prevention, Response and Recovery against Potential

AI for Wide-Area Situational Awareness and Traceability

Applied Cryptography for AI and IIoT

Security and Privacy of Cyber-Physical Systems and/or IIoT

Applications of Formal Methods to IIoT Security

Blockchain for Trustworthy IIoT/CPS-based applications

Embedded Systems Security

Cyber Threat Intelligence for AI and IIoT/CPS

Privacy-Preserving Machine Learning
