CFP Vehicular Security

37th IEEE International Conference on Consumer Electronics (ICCE 2019), Las Vegas, January 11-13, 2019

Call for Papers for a Special Session on

Vehicular Security, Trust and Privacy

Submission Deadline:  June 30, 2018

 Authors are invited to submit papers for a special session on “Vehicular Security, Trust and Privacy’’ in the 37th IEEE International Conference on Consumer Electronics (ICCE 2019). ICCE 2019 is the annual flagship conference of the IEEE Consumer Electronics (CE) Society. Special Session papers will provide a comprehensive review on fundamentals as well as the current state of the art in research and technology.

New-model vehicles include an average of 100 million lines of code and 60 control units.  It is estimated that there will be 220 million connected cars globally by 2020.  With the growth of IoT (Internet of Things) enabled technologies in vehicles, such as, power and infotainment systems, remote locking and engine starting, navigation, and autonomous driving features, the potential threat vectors for malicious cyber-attacks are rapidly expanding. As an example, vulnerabilities can be exploited to remotely take control of safety-critical systems including the brakes in the vehicle. Additionally, there is a growing concern that vehicle systems can be hacked, and the user’s privacy compromised by stolen data. Cyber attacks are a proven threat to the reliability and safety of the car and to the privacy of the driver. This session will provide a publication medium for articles that either address the review of existing vehicular systems and platforms or explore novel research in vehicular security, trust, and privacy.

Topics of interest for this Special Session include but are not limited to the following:

  • Cyber intrusion and detection in vehicular networks and other vehicular communications (V2V, V2X)
  • Security, trust, and privacy metrics in vehicles
  • Cyber threats and security in modern and autonomous vehicles
  • Security, trust, and privacy in vehicular cloud computing
  • Cryptographic algorithms and hardware for vehicular security
  • Hardware security primitives in vehicles
  • Side-channel attacks and defenses leveraging vehicular hardware
  • Security, trust, and privacy in electric and solar vehicles
  • Cybersecurity of medium and heavy vehicles

Submission Procedure:

Authors are invited to submit original, unpublished manuscripts of 2- to 6-page length at https://edas.info/showConferenceDetails.php?c=23404. Previously published papers or papers under review for other conferences/journals should not be submitted for consideration. Authors may prepare original work of maximum 6 pages with a 200-word abstract using double-column IEEE conference-format template: http://www.ieee.org/conferences_events/conferences/publishing/templates.html. All accepted papers will be published in the ICCE 2019 Digest or Proceedings and submitted to IEEE Xplore digital library. Instructions for authors and document templates are available on the conference website. A selected set of papers from ICCE 2019 program will be invited for submission to a special issue of a peer-reviewed journal based on reviewer’s feedback and quality of conference presentation.

Schedule:   

  • Submission Deadline: June 30, 2018
  • Author Notification: September 05, 2018
  • Submission of Final Version: September 25, 2018

IEEE Consumer Electronics Magazine (CEM)

Call for Papers for a Special Issue on: 

Vehicular Security, Trust and Privacy

Authors are invited to submit papers for a special issue on ‘Vehicular Security, Trust and Privacy’’ in the IEEE Consumer Electronics Magazine that will provide a comprehensive review on fundamentals as well as the current state-of-the-art in research and technology. New-model vehicles include an average of 100 million lines of code and 60 control units. It is estimated that there will be 220 million connected cars globally by 2020. With the growth of Internet-of-Things (IoT) enabled technologies in vehicles such as power and infotainment systems, remote locking and unlocking, remote engine start, navigation, and autonomous driving features, the potential threat vectors for malicious cyber-attacks are rapidly expanding. As an example, software vulnerabilities could be exploited to remotely take control of safety-critical systems including the brakes in the vehicle. Thus, there is a growing concern that vehicles can be hacked and the user data can be stolen. These cyberattacks are threat to the reliability and safety of the car and to the privacy of the driver. Therefore, this special issue will provide a publication medium for articles that either address the review of existing vehicular systems, and platforms, or explore novel research paradigms in vehicular security, trust and privacy. Technical articles are welcome but these should be of general interest to an engineering audience and of broader scope than archival journal/transaction papers. Articles should be broadly scoped as typically review and tutorial articles are suited to the Magazine.

 

Topics of interest for this Special Issue include but are not limited to the following:

  • Cyber intrusion and detection in vehicular network
  • Security, trust and privacy in vehicular communications
  • Security, trust and privacy metrics in vehicles
  • Cyber threats and security in modern and autonomous vehicles
  • Security, trust and privacy in vehicular cloud computing
  • Cryptographic algorithms and hardware for vehicular security
  • Hardware security primitives in vehicles
  • Side channel attacks on vehicular hardware
  • Security, trust and privacy in electric and solar vehicles

Submission Procedure:

Submissions should follow the IEEE standard template and should consist of the following: (i) A manuscript of maximum 8-page length: A pdf of the complete manuscript layout with figures, tables placed within the text; (ii) A source file in Word or Latex format; (iii) High resolution original photos and graphics as JPEG files are required for the final submission. Images embedded in Word or Excel documents are not suitable; however, figures and graphics may be provided in a PowerPoint slide deck with one figure/graphic per slide. Articles which have been previously published at a conference need to have at least 40% new material as clarified in the cover letter of the submission. The manuscripts need to be submitted online using the following URL: http://mc.manuscriptcentral.com/cemag. The authors need to select “Special Section: Vehicular Security, Trust and Privacy” in Step-1 of the submission process to ensure that the article is reviewed for this Special Call. For any questions, please contact guest editor Dr. Himanshu Thapliyal, Email: hthapliyal@uky.edu.

 

Schedule (Tentative):   

  • Submission Deadline: October 31, 2017
  • Author Notification: Jan 31, 2018
  • Publication Date: Summer 2018
