The 1st International Workshop on Security and Privacy in Collaborative System

Collocated with 12th EAI International Conference on Collaborative Computing: Networking, Applications and Worksharing

NOVEMBER 12-13, 2016


Call for papers


Collaborative systems such as cloud computing and cyber networks could achieve higher productivity and produce joint products when compared to traditional standalone systems. However, their successful consumerization has also become a source of pain for adopting users and organizations. For example, the widespread presence of vulnerable and untrusted interconnectivity and information-stealing applications raises substantial security and privacy concerns. The collaborative systems face two major security issues: firstly, in order to guarantee the usability, they usually allow any identity and any number of users to connect and thus make their operation software easily attacked and paralyzed; secondly, they routinely collect and organize many forms of security-sensitive and privacy-sensitive information and make that information easily accessible to third-party applications. This workshop aims to bring together experts and practitioners from academia, industry and government to present innovative research, case studies, as well as legal and policy issues. WSPCS plans to address a broad range of topics relevant to security and privacy related collaborative system.

The WSPCS will be held in Beijing, China in November, 2016. It provides a forum for researchers world-wide to present their latest work in security and privacy in collaborative systems and to show how this research can be used to enable innovation.

WSPCS is organized by the Internet of Things and Information Security (IoTIS) research team at the Northeastern University at Qinhuangdao.
