Please note this workshop has been rescheduled to Sunday, 24 April 2022.
Ground and aerial vehicles such as cars, buses, trucks, airplanes, and drones make the whole world increasingly convenient and connected. Due to their growing usage and highly safety-critical nature, security/privacy problems pose direct threats to passengers, owners, operators, as well as the environment. Recently, there has been a substantial demand to increase vehicle autonomy and connectivity, such as autonomous driving, drone delivery, vehicle-to-everything (V2X) communication, intelligent transportation, and drone swarm. Such trends further exacerbate security/privacy problems and require urgent attention from both academia and industry. To meet this critical need, the AutoSec workshop will bring together an audience including university researchers, scientists, industry professionals, and government representatives to contribute to new theories, technologies, and systems for security/privacy challenges in all kinds of current and emerging vehicles, and their supporting infrastructures, especially on the emerging technologies such as autonomy, driver assistance, and connectivity.
AutoSec 2022 will be held in a hybrid fashion in conjunction with the Network and Distributed System Security Symposium (NDSS) 2022.
Demo session: AutoSec will feature a demo session to allow academic researchers and industry companies to share demonstrations of their latest attacks, defenses, tools, or systems on automotive and autonomous vehicles.
Awards: All accepted papers and demos will be considered for Best Paper Award and Best Demo Award. The winner and runner-up will win cash prizes. In addition, a special AutoDriving Security Award will be given to one of the accepted papers to recognize and reward research that makes substantial contributions to secure today’s emerging autonomous driving technology. We may also provide a few Travel Awards for students with paper/demo contributions.
