The 3rd IEEE International Workshop on
Big Data and IoT Security in Smart Computing
June 12-15, 2019  Washington D.C., US
*IEEE Xplore and EI Indexed
Submission Deadline: 31 March,2019 (extended; firm deadline)

Smart computing aims at improving quality of life and experience
in modern society represents the next wave of computing.
Key technologies contributing to the realization of smart connected
communities include sensing, IoTs, mobile and pervasive
computing, cyber-physical-social systems, big data, machine
learning, data analytics, social and cognitive computing.
Smart computing help solve a wide variety of societal challenges
related to transportation, energy, healthcare, finance, disaster
management, and so on.

At the core of all such systems and applications, critical issues
are security privacy, reliability, resiliency, and robustness.
Indeed to boost the development of big data applications in
smart computing, data security and data traceability as well
as privacy are extremely important. For example, data security
such as secure computation with fully homomorphic encryption
and data traceability with both proof of storage and
attribute-based encryption become indispensable.

After successful 1st IEEE International Workshop on Big Data
and IoT Security in Smart Computing (IEEE BITS2017) in
Hong Kong and 2nd IEEE BTS2018 in Italy, the 3rd workshop, 
IEEE BITS2019, will be held focussing on theories and 
implementations on secure computing and secure data 
management in Cloud/IoT environment. BITS is a full-day 
workshop that is going to be organized in conjunction with
 the 5th IEEE International Conference on Smart Computing
 (SMARTCOMP2019) on 12-15 June, 2019.

The topics to be addressed at BITS2019 will include, but not
limited to, theoretical or practical aspects of big data and IoT
security and privacy in smart computing and cyber-physical
systems. Papers describing experience on real prototype
implementations are also welcome. Submissions should be
targeted to one of the following sub-topics:

-Anonymity for big data
-Cryptology for big data (Fully Homomorphic Encryption, Proof of Storage,
Attribute-based Encryption, etc.)
-Computer architecture to speed-up secure computation
-Cloud security (Security and privacy policies)
-Data traceability for big data
-Distributed systems security
-Government funded projects in the area of data security and data
-Legal study for handling big data
-Privacy risk assessment
-Secure computation for big data
-Secure information flow
-Security management
-Trust, security, privacy, and data provenance issues in Smart Computing
-Security and privacy issues in various smart computing applications
such as transportation, energy, environmental, smart city, healthcare,
and social media


Paper submissions should be no longer than 6 pages (including references)
and formatted according to the IEEE conference template. Papers must
be submitted electronically as PDF files through EasyChair by selecting
BITS2019 track.
All submitted papers will be subject to peer reviews by Technical Program
Committee members and other experts in the field. All presented papers
will be published in the SmartComp 2019 conference proceedings and
submitted to the IEEE Xplore Digital Library. All accepted papers will
be EI indexed.
