The last decade has witnessed an increased level of sophistication in embedded vehicle software. Connected and autonomous vehicles (CAV) are classified as critical systems, as their failure could directly impact human safety or lead to loss of valuable assets. Hence, their security is a major concern for users as well as designers. Connected vehicles are primarily software controlled and communicate with each other, the cloud, and the intelligent transportation infrastructure via wireless networks. Given that, the underlying software that controls vehicles’ operations and the integrated communication technologies must be designed and deployed with a higher level of security and safety assurance than traditional systems.
The VCSS workshop seeks to bring together researchers and practitioners working toward the improvement of security of communication and software solutions in the automotive sector. The workshop provides the leaders in the field with an excellent opportunity to discuss emerging security challenges and exchange their research findings and experience. We welcome papers and presentations reflecting the latest advances in theory and technology related to the security of intelligent vehicles.
The list of topics includes, but is not limited to:
Authors are invited to submit original unpublished research papers as well as industrial practice papers.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 https://qrs21.techconf.org/submission.
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. 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.Submission
