IEEE International Workshop on Trustworthy IoT (TIoT 2021)


The dependence on the IoT systems for technical and economic success, has set the IoT actors vulnerable to hostile cyber actions and attacks, and other serious cyber threats. Under the serious threats, it cannot be confident that the IoT systems will work under attack from a sophisticated and well-resourced opponent. IoT systems are often part of the critical systems and their failure may directly impact human safety or lead to loss of valuable assets, making their security and safety a major concern for researchers, designers and users.

The TIoT workshop seeks to bring together researchers and practitioners working toward the improvement of security and trustworthy of IoT solutions in the various fields by discussing recent developments, current and forthcoming challenges, and exchanging their research findings and experiences. The workshop welcomes papers and presentations in the various fields of IoT, dealing with security, safety, and trustworthy.


The list of topics includes, but is not limited to:

  • IoT vulnerability assessment, risk analysis, attack and threat models
  • Architecture, design, and implementation of secure IoT devices and systems
  • Design of secure IoT applications
  • IoT operating system security and maintenance
  • Resiliency and recovery of IoT systems
  • Testing, verification, and validation of IoT devices and systems
  • Antitampering solutions for IoT devices and systems
  • Events monitoring
  • IoT standardization, certification, and interoperability
  • Practical experiences, empirical studies, and testbeds for IoT
  • Industrial experiences and best practices for IoT software development


Authors are invited to submit original unpublished research papers as well as industrial practice papers. Simultaneous submissions to other conferences are not permitted. Detailed instructions for electronic paper submission, panel proposals, and review process can be found at

The length of a camera ready paper will be limited to eight pages. Each paper should include a title, the name and affiliation of each author, a 150-word abstract, and up to 6 keywords. Shorter version papers (up to four pages) are also allowed.

All papers must conform to the QRS conference proceedings format (PDF | Word DOCX | Latex) and Submission Guideline set in advance by QRS 2021 co-located workshops. At least one of the authors of each accepted paper is required to pay full registration fee and present the paper at the workshop. Arrangements are being made to publish selected accepted papers in reputable journals. Submissions must be in PDF format and uploaded to the conference submission site.
