CSSS 2015 First International Conference on Cyber Security for
Sustainable Society, Coventry, United Kingdom, February 26-27th, 2015

(Submissions due 23 November 2014)

Modern society aspires to be economically and socially sustainable.
The digital infrastructure underpinning our society allows us to
achieve these goals by various mechanisms including online social
networks, trust and reputation, peer-to-peer and content sharing,
secure transactions and online voting. Such mechanisms however are at
increasing risk from cyber attacks, industrial espionage, online fraud
and government surveillance; each serving to undermine trust and
security at different levels. This conference offers a unique platform
to address the issues of cyber security and trust in the context of
sustainable societies. Authors are invited to submit original research
papers addressing theoretical foundations, modelling and empirical
approaches, along with more exploratory work, and position papers to
raise open questions. Topics of interest include but are not limited

- Cyber Attacks (Phishing, Reputation Attacks)
- Identity, Trust and Trustworthiness
- Privacy, Surveillance and Control
- Reputation Systems and Social Networks
- Security Governance and Public Good
- Human Factors and Behavioural Dynamics
- Ethics, Philosophy, Politics and Innovation
- Security Economics, Incentives and Liabilities
- Low Carbon and Resilient City and Transport
