This is the final call for papers for IEEE BITS2021.
The deadline is 16 May 2021.
         The 5th IEEE International Workshop
    on Big Data and IoT Security in Smart Computing
         (in conjunction with IEEE SMARTCOMP 2021)
             August 23-27, Irvine, CA, USA
                *IEEE Xplore and EI Indexed

It is planned to have the conference in Irvine, Orange County,
California, USA. However, there is a possibility of moving to 
either a hybrid or fully online mode depending on the 
pandemic situation.

Smart computing aims at improving quality of life and experience 
in modern society represents the next wave of computing. Key 
technologies for realizing smart computing include sensing, IoTs, 
mobile and pervasive computing, cyber-physical-social systems, 
big data, machine learning, data analytics, social and cognitive 
computing. Smart computing helps to 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 include security, privacy, reliability,
resiliency, robustness, and efficiency. Indeed, to boost the 
development of big data applications in smart computing, data 
security and data traceability as well as efficiency are extremely 

After successful previously held three IEEE International Workshops 
on Big Data and IoT Security in Smart Computing (IEEE BITS2017/2018/
2019/2020), the 5th workshop, IEEE BITS2021, will be held focusing on
theories and implementations on security, privacy, reliability, 
resiliency, and robustness secure computing and efficient data 
management in Cloud/IoT environment. BITS is a full-day workshop that
is going to be organized in conjunction in conjunction with The 7th 
IEEE International Conference on Smart Computing (SmartComp2021) on 
August, 2021. The topics to be addressed at BITS2021 will include, 
but not limited to, theoretical or practical aspects of big data and
IoT 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: 

* Big data management and its efficiency in Smart Computing
* Cloud security and privacy policies
* Data traceability for big data
* Distributed systems security
* Encryption theory and its implementations for big data
* IoT services and applications in Smart Computing
* Legal study for big data
* Machine learning in Smart Computing
* Privacy risk assessment
* Secure computation for big data
* Security management
* Side-channel attacks in Smart Computing
* Trust, security, privacy, and data provenance issues in Smart Computing
* Privacy issues for big data
* 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 and formatted 
according to the IEEE conference template. Papers must be submitted
electronically as PDF files through EDA
(https://edas.info/newPaper.php?c=28333). IEEE provides corresponding
formatting templates at IEEE conference template
Make sure to use the conference mode of the template, i.e., LaTeX users
must use the conference option of the IEEEtran document class.
Papers must be submitted electronically as a single PDF file on US 
Letter size paper (not A4), with all fonts embedded (the PDF-A standard 
complies with that). Prior to submission, ensure that any running
headers/footers, page numbering, as well as blue underlining for URLs 
and email addresses has been removed.

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 IEEE SMARTCOMP 2021 
conference proceedings and submitted to the IEEE Xplore Digital
