Call for papers - 1st Workshop on Security and Privacy in Cybermatics (SPiCy 2015)


1st Workshop on Security and Privacy in Cybermatics (SPiCy 2015)
Florence, Italy - September 30, 2015

In the modern age Cybermatics is differentiating itself by designing the 
physical and social
places into the cyber space to accomplish the union of three spaces: (i) 
Physical Cyberworld,
(ii) Social Cyberworld, and (iii) Thinking Cyberworld. In the cyber 
space, everywhere
cyber-nodes are significantly independent from the space-time 
limitations that exist in the
physical space. Along with the development of intelligent systems, 
Cybermatics has brought a
wide area of open issues during the cyber interaction, physical 
perception, social correlation,
and cognitive thinking. Currently, Cybermatics is still in its initial 
stage, and it is expected
that Cybermatics will lead industrialization and IT applications to a 
new level and will
significantly change the way of producing, living, and even thinking of 
the mankind.
Cybermatics will transform how we interact with and control the physical 
world around us, just
in the same way as the Internet transformed how we interact and

EMSICC 2015 ñ International Workshop on Energy Management for Sustainable Internet-of-Things and
Cloud Computing
Deadline extended to May 30, 2015

In conjunction with FiCloud 2015, the 3nd IEEE International Conference on Future Internet of Things and
Rome, Italy, 24-26 August 2015
Scope of the Workshop:
With the emergence of new information, wireless communication and geolocation technologies, new
innovative applications are designed moving towards the Internet of Things, Cyber-physical systems
and Cloud computing, targeting virtualization technologies and intensive data computation.

Due to their constraints in terms of energy, computational power, memory, high mobility, sporadic
connectivity, and sometimes security constraints, some smart devices need to outsource their data
storage and computation on the Cloud.

Hence, the Internet of Things as well as Cyber-physical systems require an efficient energy management to
save energy and optimize energy consumption through communication protocols, scheduling approaches,
self-organization mechanisms, offloading techniques, security solutions, etc. that rely on
energy-aware and energy-adaptive concepts.

In addition, alternative energy sources available in our environment could be used to achieve perpetual
functioning without replacing or refilling batteries, such as energy harvesting.

On the other side, energy management is also a concern for cloud nodes used to outsource data and
computation such as cloud data centers that need to be managed efficiently regarding power consumption,
air conditioning, energy saving, and environmental impact.

This workshop will address the range of problems related to energy-aware and energy harvesting
management when designing software and hardware platforms for the Internet of Things, Cyber Physical
Systems or Cloud computing.

Prospective authors are invited to submit original, previously unpublished work, reporting on novel and
significant research contributions, on-going research projects, experimental results and recent
developments related to, but not limited, the following topics:

ï Energy-aware/energy harvesting Scheduling algorithms
ï Middleware for energy-efficient computing
ï Instrumentation and measurement of energy-efficient computing and networking
ï Enhanced Performance and QoS in energy-efficient systems 
ï Resource management in large infrastructures (such as datacenters) and in power/energy constrained systems
ï Data management in energy-efficient systems
ï Sensing, monitoring, control, and management of energy systems
ï Modelling, control, and architectures for renewable energy generation resources
ï Privacy and security in energy-aware platforms
ï Metrics, benchmarks, interfaces, tools to take into account Energy dimension

Call for Course and Workshop Proposals: ESSLLI 2016

Call for Course and Workshop Proposals
28th European Summer School in Logic, Language and Information - ESSLLI 2016
15-26 August, 2016 
Faculty of Computer Science, Free University of Bozen-Bolzano, Italy
in collaboration with University of Trento, Italy


 1 June 2015: Proposal submission deadline 
 23 September 2015: Notification
 20 July 2016: Course material due


Proposals for courses and workshops at ESSLLI 2016 are invited in all areas of Logic, Linguistics and
Computing Sciences. Cross-disciplinary and innovative topics are particularly encouraged.

Each course and workshop will consist of five 90 minute sessions, offered daily (Monday-Friday) in a
single week. Proposals for two-week courses should be structured and submitted as two independent
one-week courses, e.g. as an introductory course followed by an advanced one. In such cases, the ESSLLI
programme committee reserves the right to accept just one of the two proposals.

All instructional and organizational work at ESSLLI is performed completely on a voluntary basis, so as to
keep participation fees to a minimum. However, organizers and instructors have their registration fees
waived, and are reimbursed for travel and accommodation expenses up to a level to be determined and
communicated with the proposal notification. ESSLLI can only guarantee reimbursement for at most one
course/workshop organizer, and can not guarantee full reimbursement of travel costs for lecturers or
organizers from outside of Europe. The ESSLLI organizers would appreciate any help in controlling the
School's expenses by seeking complete coverage of travel and accommodation expenses from other sources.


Each proposal should fall under one of the following categories.

Such courses are designed to present the basics of a research area, to people with no prior knowledge in that
area. They should be of elementary level, without prerequisites in the course's topic, though possibly
assuming a level of general scientific maturity in the relevant discipline. They should enable
researchers from related disciplines to develop a level of comfort with the fundamental concepts and
techniques of the course's topic, thereby contributing to the interdisciplinary nature of our research community.

Introductory courses are central to ESSLLI's mission. They are intended to introduce a research field to
students, young researchers, and other non-specialists, and to foster a sound understanding of its
basic methods and techniques. Such courses should enable researchers from related disciplines to
develop some comfort and competence in the topic considered. Introductory courses in a
cross-disciplinary area may presuppose general knowledge of the related disciplines.

Advanced courses are targeted primarily to graduate students who wish to acquire a level of comfort and
understanding in the current research of a field.

Workshops focus on specialized topics, usually of current interest. Workshops organizers are
responsible for soliciting papers and selecting the workshop programme. They are also responsible for
publishing proceedings if they decide to have proceedings.


Course and workshop proposals should follow closely the following guidelines to ensure full consideration.

Each course may have no more than two instructors, and each workshop no more than two organizers. All
instructors and organizers must possess a PhD or equivalent degree by the submission deadline.

Course proposals should mention explicitly the intended course category. Proposals for introductory
courses should indicate the intended level, for example as it relates to standard textbooks and
monographs in the area. Proposals for advanced courses should specify the prerequisites in detail.

Proposals must be submitted in PDF format via:

and include all of the following:

a. Personal information for each proposer: Name, affiliation, contact
   address, email, homepage (optional)

b. General proposal information: Title, category

c. Contents information:
   Abstract of up to 150 words
   Motivation and description (up to two pages)
   Tentative outline
   Expected level and prerequisites
   Appropriate references (e.g. textbooks, monographs, proceedings, surveys)

d. Practical information:
   Relevant preceding meetings and events, if applicable
   Potential external funding for participants

                2nd International Conference on
            Safety and Security in Internet of Things
                         (SaSeIoT 2015)

                 26-27 October, 2015 – Rome, Italy

The infrastructure of large cities is becoming increasingly
vulnerable to natural and man-made disasters.

Complex Information Communication Technology (ICT) infrastructures,
critical dependencies and unforeseen cascading effects can worsen
single hazard events to a threatening crisis of several entire

With the dense population in urban areas along with the critical
dependency on infrastructures, such crises become a serious threat
to the safety and security of citizens and industries. When the
"unforeseen" happens, public security comes to its limits Whether
cyber, natural or industrial disasters - effective risk management
must be a continuous process that recognizes new threats and
opportunities, in particular in relation to new technological

Internet of Things (IoT) will have an enormous impact on our future
infrastructures. In the context of safety and security this is at
the same time a challenge (How can we design secure and resilient
IoT infrastructures?) and an opportunity (How can we use IoT for
better safety and security?).

In particular in urban environments, the increasing deployments of
IoT technologies and the rapid proliferation of sensored and
automated cities are opening up new avenues of threats and
opportunities toward public safety and security. Although we have
seen various deployments of diverse IoT systems, our understanding
of these systems and their implications in the context of safety and
security has just scratched the surface. The Second International
Conference on Safety and Security with IoT (SaSeIoT 2015) aims to
explore these dynamics within the scope of IoT in the context of
Safety and Security. The conference solicits original and inspiring
research contributions from technology experts, researchers,
designers, practitioners in academia, authorities and industry, and
promises to offer a highly interactive forum to share knowledge,
experiences, and best practices primarily in the following main
application oriented themes:

o Ensuring the resilience and security of IoT dependent

     The topics of interest in this theme include, but are not
     limited to:
     - Models, methods and tools for testing IoT infrastructures
     - Design of resilient IoT infrastructures
     - Detection, prevention, response and mitigation of cyber
       threats to IoT
     - Trust and identity management in IoT
     - Security protocols in IoT
     - Risk analysis and management for IoT infrastructures
     - Threat modeling in IoT

o Using IoT for crisis and emergency management

     The topics of interest in this theme include, but are not

                 June 24 - 26, 2015


          In cooperation with ACM SIGLOG

                Nijmegen, Netherlands


       Early registration deadline:    June 14, 2015


-- SCOPE --

MFPS conferences are devoted to those areas of mathematics, logic,
and computer science that are related to models of computation, in
general, and to the semantics of programming languages, in
particular. The series has particularly stressed providing a forum
where researchers in mathematics and computer science can meet and
exchange ideas about problems of common interest. As the series also
strives to maintain breadth in its scope, the conference strongly
encourages participation by researchers in neighbouring areas.

CALCO aims to bring together researchers and practitioners with
interests in foundational aspects, and both traditional and emerging
uses of algebra and coalgebra in computer science.
It is a high-level, bi-annual conference formed by joining the forces
and reputations of CMCS (the International Workshop on Coalgebraic
Methods in Computer Science), and WADT (the Workshop on Algebraic
Development Techniques). Previous CALCO editions took place in
Swansea (Wales, 2005), Bergen (Norway, 2007), Udine (Italy, 2009),
Winchester (UK, 2011) and Warsaw (Poland, 2013).

Nijmegen is the oldest city in the Netherlands and celebrated its
2,000th year of existence in 2005. It is situated in the eastern
province of Gelderland, quite near to the German border. The latin
name for Nijmegen, `Noviomagus´, is a reminder of its Roman past.
`Noviomagus´ means `new market´ and refers to the right to hold a
market as granted by the Romans. In the days of Charlemagne, the
city was called `Numaga´; later on, this became `Nieumeghen´ and
`Nimmegen´. However, citizens born and bred in Nijmegen speak
affectionately of `Nimwegen´.

Nijmegen is one of the warmest cities of the Netherlands, especially
during summer, when the highest temperatures in the country are
usually measured in the triangle Roermond – Nijmegen – Eindhoven.
The lack of north-south oriented mountain ranges in Europe make this
area prone to sudden shifts in weather, giving the region a
semi-continental climate.

Conference venue for MFPS/CALCO is the majestic *Art Cinema Lux* 
(, located in the city center of Nijmegen.

IEEE CSS 2015 Call for Papers Deadline extended (1 Day Left---Firm)

//** Our apologies if you receive multiple copies of this CFP **//

CSS 2015 Call For Papers


A large fraction of the population in the world now spends a great deal of time in cyberspace. Cyberspace has become a critical infrastructure that is embedded in almost all other critical infrastructures and enables every movement of human society. It is thus very much in the public interest to have a safe and secure cyberspace. In the past several years, there has been large number of attacks in cyberspace, such as attacks on the Internet, attacks on embedded/real-time computing and control systems, and attacks on dedicated computing facilities. Many research efforts have been made to achieve cyberspace safety and security, such as blocking and limiting the impact of compromise, enabling accountability, promoting deployment of defense systems, and deterring potential attackers and penalizing attackers.


The 7th International Symposium on Cyberspace Safety and Security provides a leading edge forum to foster interaction between researchers and developers with the cyberspace safety and security communities, and to give attendees an opportunity to network with experts in this area. It focusses on Cyberspace Safety and Security, such as uthentication, access control, availability, integrity, privacy, confidentiality, dependability and sustainability issues of cyberspace.
