Dear users of Hpc-Announce mailing list,

Dear colleague,

SIoTEc 2022 - 3rd edition of IEEE Workshop on Secure IoT, Edge and Cloud
Messina, Taormina Italy*
May 16, 2021 - https://siotec2022.netsons.org/

in conjunction with the 22th IEEE/ACM International Symposium on Cluster,
Cloud and Internet Computing (CCGrid 2022)

*The safety and well-being of all conference participants is our priority.
For this reason the workshop will be held online.

The Cloud/Edge paradigm fosters the deployment of digital services over
multiple physical (both private and public) infrastructures
even across different administrative boundaries. In its turn, the IoT
advent has determined the proliferation of smart devices
connected to the Internet and injecting into it a vast amount of data that
may traverse several network boundaries and undergo
many computational stages before they get consumed. If, on the one hand,
the benefits brought by these technologies are well known,
it is clear as well that, in the envisaged scenario, the exposure of data,
services and infrastructures to malicious attacks has definitely grown.
Even a single breach on any of the links of the data-service-infrastructure
chain may seriously compromise the security of the end-user application.
With such a wide attack surface, security must definitely approached in a
holistic way and addressed in any layer where concerns may potentially
The workshop solicits novel and innovative ideas, proposals, positions and
best practices that address the modelling, design, implementation,
and enforcement of the security in Cloud/Edge/IoT environments.


- Blockchain-based tools and services
- Data security across multiple domains and countries
- Federated IoT, Edge and Cloud systems
- Security in Osmotic Computing
- Security on Cyber-physical systems
- Anonymous and certified communications
- Metrics and performance of secure interdomain protocols
- Attack detection and prevention
- Authentication protocols and key management
- Availability and survivability of secure services and systems
- Biometric security
- Trust models and security modeling in Cloud/Edge/IoT scenarios
- Security and privacy in the cloud and fog/edge infrastructure, services
and storage
- Machine/deep learning applied to security applications
- Emerging and disruptive technologies for security, privacy, trust and
- Security systems and protocols for Drones
- Drone communication and communication security
- Security in e-health
- Security in Smart cities
- Security in Networks including SDN

The use of Soft Computing/Computational Intelligence methods in facing
problems in the above topics is highly welcome, although not compulsory.


Authors are invited to submit their papers written in English in IEEE
double-column format (IEEE standard conference templates).
Papers can be either full, with a maximum length of eight (8) printed
pages, or short, with a maximum length of four (4) printed pages.
In both cases, the number of pages includes figures, tables & references.
Submissions should contain original material and not be previously
published, or currently submitted for consideration elsewhere.
All papers will be reviewed for scientific quality by the Technical Program

All papers should be submitted via easychair using the following link

Paper submission implies the willingness of at least one author to
register, at the regular rate (non-student), and present the paper.
The Workshop Proceedings will be part of the CCGrid 2022
Proceedings and will be submitted for inclusion in IEEE Xplore Digital
The IEEE SIoTEC Workshop is using the Easychair Conference Management
System to manage the paper submission process.


A "Best Paper Award" Certificate will be conferred on the author(s) of a
paper presented at the workshop,
selected by the Chairs based on scientific significance, originality and
outstanding technical quality of the paper,
as assessed also by the evaluations of the members of the Program Committee.

Highly top rated papers from the Siotec 2022 conference will be invited for
submission of extended version for publication in one of the following
special issues:
- “Green Communications via Optimization Techniques” for Sustainable
Computing: Informatics and Systems (ISSN: 2210-5379) published by Elsevier.


Submission deadline: January 20th, 2022
Notification of paper acceptance: February 24th, 2022
Submission of camera-ready papers: March 18th, 2022
