International Workshop on Secure Smart Societies in Next Generation Networks (SECSOC)

General Cybersecurity Conference

 June 28 – 30, 2018 | Exeter, United Kingdom

Cybersecurity Conference Description

The Cyber-Physical Systems (CPS) present unprecedented opportunities for society progressively moving towards a socio-technical ecosystem. Big data collected from numerous CPS, connected via the advanced 4G/LTE and the near future 5G networks across various interfaces and locations, will facilitate more sophisticated Smart Decision Making and Personalised Services.

Security vulnerabilities in CPS, however, leave users or even the entire smart society at risk. Besides, a rapid on-going evolution in the technical architectures and topologies of the Internet brings new security challenges to the fore. The migration of networks to Software Defined Networking and Network Functions Virtualization, particularly, captures attention on the security of orchestration, management functionality, surveillance as well as privacy. Novel security schemes are, therefore, in urgent demand to enhance the reliability, robustness, and privacy of smart society.

The SECSOC-2018 workshop will be held in Exeter, United Kingdom, and in conjunction with The 20th International Conferences on High-Performance Computing and Communications. The workshop will be co-organised by The Edinburgh Napier University, The University of Aizu, The University of Aukland, and The Cyber Academy on the 28th – 30th of June 2018. The focus of this international workshop is to bring together expertise from industry and academia to build a secure smart society in next-generation networking paradigm.
