Dear Colleagues,
     The 5th Workshop on Internet of Safe Things (SafeThings’21) will be
held once again with IEEE Symposium on Security and Privacy (S&P), the most
prestigious computer security conference. Due to the pandemic, the workshop
will take place virtually on May 27th, 2021. The goal of this workshop is
to develop a community that systematically dissects the vulnerabilities and
risks exposed by these emerging IoT/CPS systems, and create tools,
algorithms, frameworks, and systems that help in the development of safe
systems. The application domains of interest include, but are not limited
to autonomous vehicles and transportation infrastructure; medical CPS and
public health; smart buildings, smart grid and smart cities.
      The CFP is officially out on the workshop website:
https://www.ieee-security.org/TC/SP2021/SPW2021/safethings2021/. A PDF
version is also attached. Paper due is *Jan 25, 2021 *--- Please consider
submitting your best work on IoT/CPS security! We solicitation (1) full
papers that are 6 pages excluding references, and (2) demo papers that are
up to 1 page.
     Please also feel free to forward this email to anyone you know that
might be interested in submitting. Any help from you in promoting and
contributing to this event can mean a lot for developing a thriving
research community on securing emerging IoT/CPS systems. Thank you so much
for supporting our workshop!

Alfred, Yuan, Luis, and Earlence

Call for Papers: IEEE Workshop on the Internet of Safe Things (SafeThings)
2021, co-located with IEEE S&P 2021

As traditionally segregated systems are brought online for next-generation
connected applications, we have an opportunity to significantly improve the
safety of legacy systems. For instance, insights from data across systems
can be exploited to reduce accidents, improve air quality and support
disaster events. Cyber-physical systems (CPS) also bring new risks that
arise due to the unexpected interaction between systems. These safety risks
arise because of information that distracts users while driving, software
errors in medical devices, corner cases in data-driven control, compromised
sensors in drones or conflicts in societal policies. Accordingly, the
Workshop on the Internet of Safe Things (or SafeThings, for brevity) seeks
to bring researchers and practitioners that are actively exploring system
design, modeling, verification, authentication approaches to provide safety
guarantees in the Internet of Things (IoT). The workshop welcomes
contributions that integrate hardware and software systems provided by
disparate vendors, particularly those that have humans in the loop. As
safety is inherently linked with security and privacy, we also seek
contributions in these areas that address safety concerns. With the
SafeThings workshop, we seek to develop a community that systematically
dissects the vulnerabilities and risks exposed by these emerging CPSes, and
create tools, algorithms, frameworks, and systems that help in the
development of safe systems.

The scope of SafeThings includes safety topics as it relates to an
individual’s health (physical, mental), society (air pollution, toxicity,
disaster events), or the environment (species preservation, global warming,
oil spills). The workshop considers safety from a human perspective, and
thus, does not include topics such as thread safety or memory safety in its
scope.

Topics of interest include, but are not limited to, the following
categories:

   - Verification of safety in IoT/CPS platforms
   - Authentication in IoT/CPS settings
   - Adversarial machine learning and testing of IoT/CPS systems
   - Secure perception, localization, and planning in autonomous systems
   (e.g., autonomous vehicles and drones)
   - Sensors/analog and network protocol security in IoT/CPS systems
   - Compliance with legal, health, and environmental policies
   - Conflict resolution between IoT applications
   - Secure connectivity and updates in IoT/CPS
   - Secure integration of hardware and software systems
   - Privacy challenges in IoT/CPS settings
   - Privacy preserving data sharing and analysis
   - Resiliency against attacks and faults
   - Safety in human-in-the-loop systems
   - Support for IoT/CPS development - debugging tools, emulators, testbeds
   - Usable security and privacy for IoT/CPS platforms
   - Smart homes, smart buildings and smart city security and privacy issues


In addition, application domains of interest include, but are not limited
to autonomous vehicles and transportation infrastructure; medical CPS and
public health; smart buildings, smart grid and smart cities.

*Call for Demos*: In addition to the presentation of accepted papers,
SafeThings will include a demo session that is designed to allow
researchers to share demonstrations of their systems that include CPS/IoT
security and safety as a major design goal. Demos of attacks are also
welcome.

*Important Dates:*

   - Submission Deadline: *25 Jan 2021*
   - Acceptance Notification: 25 Feb 2021
   - Camera Ready Deadline: 5 March 2021
   - Workshop: 27 May 2021
