Workshop Description

In recent years, Artificial Intelligence (AI) has received a lot of attention, especially for the success of deep learning in addressing problems that were considered hard before. Big players, such as Google, Amazon, and Baidu, are exploring the application of AI in different markets, including healthcare, FinTech, and autonomous vehicles. Together with AI, technologies like Internet-of-Things (IoT) have boosted the emerging Industry 4.0, where through the adoption of Industrial-IoT (IIoT) into the production chain, companies want smarter manufacturing that can be adapted to their customers’ needs.

The accelerating adoption of new technologies brings challenges primarily associated with the cybersecurity of the applications, where confidentiality, integrity, and data availability are crucial. 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 state-of-the-art security solutions. On the other hand, cybersecurity can contribute to improving 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 to share their work and open the discussion of new ideas on this always-evolving topic.

Topics of Interest

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 governancefor AI and IIoT-based Application
  • AI-Assisted Critical Infrastructure Security
  • (Federated) Adversarial Machine Learning
  • AI for Detection,Prevention, Response and Recovery against PotentialThreats
  • 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 TrustworthyIIoT/CPS-based applications
  • Embedded Systems Security
  • Cyber Threat Intelligence for AI and IIoT/CPS
  • Privacy-Preserving Machine Learning

Paper Submission

Instructions for authors:

Papers can be submitted at the Easy Chair link here.

Submissions must be original and must not duplicate work that any of the authors has published elsewhere or has submitted in parallel to any other venue with formally published proceedings.

Submissions must be anonymous, with no author names, affiliations, acknowledgement or obvious references. Each submission must begin with a title, short abstract, and a list of keywords. The introduction should summarise the contributions of the paper at a level appropriate for a non-specialist reader. Likewise, all submissions must follow the original LNCS format (see http://www.springeronline.com/lncs ) with a page limit of 20 pages (including references). It is strongly encouraged that submissions be processed in LaTeX.

Authors of accepted papers must guarantee that their paper will be presented at the conference and must make a full version of their paper available online. Therefore, each accepted paper must be presented by at least a registered author. Submissions not meeting the submission guidelines risk rejection without consideration of their merits.

The accepted papers will have post-proceedings published by Springer in the LNCS series.

Best Paper Award

There will be an ACNS best workshop paper award (with 500 EUR prize sponsored by Springer), to be selected from the accepted papers of all workshops.
