EdgeSP: The Fifth ACM/IEEE Workshop on
Security and Privacy in Edge Computing

Call for Papers

As the technologies of edge computing continue to advance, new security and privacy challenges and opportunities emerge, leading to the flourishing research on and fast development of various security solutions. The aim of this workshop is to provide a platform for researchers and practitioners to present advances in security and privacy enhancing technologies in the emerging field of edge computing. The workshop will be co-located with the Seventh ACM/IEEE Symposium on Edge Computing (SEC), December 5-8, 2022, in Seattle, WA, USA.

All papers presented at the workshop will be included in the IEEE Digital Library. Extended versions of accepted papers will be recommended for publication in Elsevier High-Confidence Computing.

We invite authors to submit previously unpublished papers offering novel research contributions addressing security and privacy issues in edge computing. Topics include, but are not limited to:

  • Anonymity
  • Attacks and defences
  • Authentication
  • Side-channel attacks and defences for edge computing
  • Intrusion detection and prevention
  • Key Management for ddge computing
  • Mobile and Web security and privacy
  • IoT security and privacy on edge computing
  • Network and systems security
  • Privacy technologies and mechanisms
  • Protocol security
  • Secure information flow

Instructions for authors

Papers describing timely research contributions in EdgeSP’s areas of interest are solicited. Papers reporting on initial results as well as papers discussing mature research projects or case studies of deployed systems are sought out. Submissions describing big ideas that may have significant impact and could lead to interesting discussions at the workshop are encouraged.

Submitted papers must be neither previously published nor under review by another workshop, conference or journal. Only electronic submissions in PDF will be accepted. Submitted papers must be no longer than 6 single-spaced 8.5" x 11" pages, including figures and tables, but excluding references, and using 10-point type on 12-point (single-spaced) leading, two-column format, Times Roman, or a similar font, within a text block 7.14" wide x 9.22" deep. IEEE Standard template for Latex and Word meet these specifications and can be found at: https://www.ieee.org/conferences/publishing/templates.html. Papers not meeting these criteria will be rejected without review, and no deadline extensions will be granted for reformatting. Pages should be numbered, and figures and tables should be legible in black and white, without requiring magnification. Papers so short as to be considered "extended abstracts" will not receive full consideration. Papers must be submitted to https://easychair.org/conferences/?conf=edgesp2022

At least one of the authors of each paper accepted for presentation in EdgeSP 2022 must register for the workshop.
