首届VehicleSec Symposium投稿啦!与安全顶会NDSS合办,聚焦智能车/无人机/交通安全和隐私

首届ISOC (Internet Society) Symposium on Vehicle Security and Privacy (VehicleSec’23)将在2023 年 2 月 27 日与安全顶会NDSS 2023 合办。考虑到疫情影响,本次将以线上线下结合(Hybrid)形式举行,其中线下部分将在加利福尼亚州圣地亚哥的 Catamaran Resort Hotel & Spa举办。VehicleSec会议的创立是基于多年成功与NDSS合办的 AutoSec (Automotive and Autonomous Vehicle Security) Workshop,将继续致力于智能车/无人机/交通的安全问题和相关社区发展。


· 投稿范围:任何和“vehicle”相关的安全及隐私问题。“Vehicle”既包括陆地上的(e.g., cars, bicycles, motorcycles, trucks, buses, scooters, train),也包括空中的(e.g., drones, airplanes, helicopters, spacecraft)、水下的(ships, boats, watercraft)、空间的(spaceship)等等。“Vehicle”的安全隐私问题既包括“vehicle”系统本身,也包括相关的子系统(e.g., in-vehicle networks, autonomy, connectivity, human-machine interfaces)、基础设施(e.g., transportation infrastructure, ground control station)、社会问题(human factors, trustworthiness,ethics)等等。

· 投稿形式:接收长论文、短论文和demo/poster。长论文 6-8页,短论文4页,demo/poster 1页,均不包括参考文献和附录。

· 会议奖项:参照之前多届AutoSec Workshop,此次VehicleSec Symposium对于长/短论文和demo/poster均设立最佳奖项(Best Paper Awards,Best Demo/Poster Awards,等)。同时还设立特色奖项AutoDriving Security Award,用于奖励对自动驾驶技术的安全有突出贡献的文章。所有奖项都包含现金奖励(cash prize),比如AutoDriving Security Award去年为2000刀。

· 学生福利:本届VehicleSec的赞助支持,将会给学生作者提供Travel Grants。

· 社区活动:在会议当天(2023年2 月 27 日)晚会举办第一次社区欢迎会(Community Reception),将提供丰富的餐食,促进社区线下交流。


Call for Papers: Inaugural ISOC Symposium on Vehicle Security and Privacy (VehicleSec 2023)

Co-located with NDSS 2023, San Diego, CA (Hybrid)

(Previously AutoSec w/ NDSS:https://www.ndss-symposium.org/ndss-program/autosec-2022/)

A vehicle is a machine that transports people and/or cargo in one or more physical domains, such as on the ground (e.g., cars, bicycles, motorcycles, trucks, buses, scooters, trains), in the air (e.g., drones, airplanes, helicopters, spacecraft), and under water (ships, boats, watercraft). Due to their safety-critical nature, the security and privacy of vehicles can pose direct threats to passengers, owners, operators, as well as the environment. Recent improvements in vehicle autonomy and connectivity (e.g., autonomous driving, drone delivery, vehicle-to-everything (V2X) communication, intelligent transportation, drone swarm), have only served to exacerbate security and privacy challenges and thus require urgent attention from academia, industry, and policy-makers. To meet this critical need, the ISOC (Internet Society) VehicleSec symposium aims at bringing together an audience of university researchers, scientists, industry professionals, and government representatives to contribute new theories, technologies, and systems on any security/privacy issues related to vehicles (e.g., ground, aerial, underwater), their sub-systems (e.g., in-vehicle networks, autonomy, connectivity, human-machine interfaces), supporting infrastructures (e.g., transportation infrastructure, ground control station), and related fundamental technologies (e.g., sensing, control, AI/ML/DNN, real-time computing, edge computing, location service, simulation, digital twin, multi-agent protocol/system design, and human-machine interaction).

VehicleSec 2023 will be a hybrid event, in conjunction with the Network and Distributed System Security Symposium (NDSS) 2023 at San Diego, CA.

Community Reception. VehicleSec will host a reception as a community social event on the night of the symposium (Feb 27, 2023), with refreshments such as food and drinks.

Demo/Poster Session: VehicleSec will feature a demo/poster session (in-person) to allow academic, governmental, and industry participants to present posters and/or share demonstrations of their latest attacks, defenses, and security/privacy tools or systems related to vehicles.

Lightning Talk Session: The symposium will feature a Lightning Talks session with short and engaging 5-minute “live” (in-person) presentations on any topics that can be worth a timely shout-out to the VehicleSec community, which includes but not limited to emerging hot topics, preliminary research results, practical problems encountered, lessons learned, the introduction of tutorials and education materials, tips and tricks, simulators/simulations, data and visualizations (e.g., autonomous driving datasets), or other (interdisciplinary) topics related to vehicles.  

Awards: Accepted papers and demos/posters will be considered for a Best Paper Award and Best Demo/Poster Award. The winner and runner-up will receive cash prizes. In addition, a special AutoDriving Security Award, with a cash prize, will be given to one of the accepted papers to recognize and reward research that makes substantial contributions to secure today’s autonomous driving technology.

Travel Grants: Selected students will be provided with support to attend the symposium in person.

Submission Guidelines for Papers/Demos/Posters:

We accept (1) regular papers of 6-8 pages, (2) short position papers or work-in-progress (WIP) papers up to 4 pages, and (3) demo/poster papers up to 1 page, all in double-column NDSS format. Page limits exclude bibliography and well-marked appendices. There is no limit on the length of the bibliography and appendices at submission time, but reviewers are not required to read any appendices so the paper should be self-contained without them. For regular papers, shorter papers won’t be penalized; thus, authors are encouraged to submit papers of appropriate length based on the research contribution.

Submissions should be anonymized for review but this is not required. Demo/poster/short/WIP papers must have the prefix “Demo:”/”Poster:”/”Short:”/”WIP:” in their titles. The submission portal will be released soon.

The proceedings will be published and archived by the Internet Society (ISOC).

Submission Guidelines for Lightning Talks:

Please submit your Lightning Talk title and abstract (200 words or less) for full consideration via the Lightning Talk submission form below by February 3, 2023. Lightning Talk abstracts will be published on the symposium website.


●All submissions must include the presenter’s name, affiliation, and contact information.
