Apologies if you receive multiple copies of this Call for Papers


*ACM SafeThings 2018*

*2nd ACM Workshop on the Internet of Safe Things*

*Co-located with Sensys        *

*November 4, 2018         *

*Shenzhen, China*

The Internet of Safe Things workshop (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 the security and privacy, we welcome
contributions that address safety concerns in these areas as well. 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.


*******CALL FOR PAPERS*******


SafeThings workshop covers safety topics as it relates to an individual’s
health (physical, mental), the 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.

Our workshop will cover, but not limit itself to, the following subject

·       Verification of safety in IoT platforms

·       Privacy preserving data sharing and analysis

·       Compliance with legal, health and environmental policies

·       Integration of hardware and software systems

·       Conflict resolution between IoT applications

·       Safety in human-in-the-loop systems

·       Support for IoT development - debugging tools, emulators, testbeds

·       Usable security and privacy for IoT platforms

·       Resiliency against attacks and faults

·       Secure connectivity in IoT

Our workshop will cover, but not limit itself to, the following domains:
autonomous vehicles and transportation infrastructure; medical CPS and
public health; smart buildings, smart grid and smart cities.




If you would like to share a provocative opinion, an interesting
preliminary work, or a cool idea that will spark discussion about IoT
safety, the poster and demo section is a perfect venue to introduce new or
ongoing work. Poster and demo presenters will have the opportunity to
discuss their work, get exposure, and receive feedback from attendees.
