The Eighth International Workshop on Security in Blockchain and Cloud Computing
SBC 2020, 
Taipei, Taiwan, June 1-5, 2020, 
(Submissions due 31 January, 2020)

Cloud computing has emerged as today's most exciting computing
paradigm shift in information technology. With the efficient sharing
of abundant computing resources in the cloud, users can economically
enjoy the on-demand high quality cloud applications and services
without committing large capital outlays locally. While the cloud
benefits are compelling, its unique attributes also raise many
security and privacy challenges in areas such as data security,
recovery, privacy, access control, trusted computing, as well as legal
issues in areas such as regulatory compliance, auditing, and many
others. To implement secure and privacy-aware environments which can
provide on-demand computing and high-quality service for cloud users
is extremely urgent. Blockchain is another paradigm shift and drew a
lot of recent attention from both academia and industry. Moreover,
blockchain and cloud have many interplays.

Building on the success of 7 versions of the International Workshop on
Security in Cloud Computing (SCC), held often with ACM AsiaCCS, we plan
this year to rebrand it to include blockchain as well and organize this
workshop again for the eighth edition. This workshop is intended to bring
together researchers, developers, and practitioners in security, privacy
and mobile computing communities. We will encourage submissions on all
theoretical and practical aspects, as well as experimental studies of
deployed systems.

Topics of interest include (but are not limited to) the following subject
categories:

   - Secure cloud architecture
   - Cloud cryptography
   - Cloud access control and key management
   - Identification and privacy in cloud
   - Integrity assurance for data outsourcing
   - Integrity and verifiable computation
   - Computation over encrypted data
   - Software and data segregation security
   - Secure management of virtualized resources
   - Trusted computing technology
   - Failure detection and prediction
   - Secure data management within and across data centers
   - Availability, recovery and auditing
   - Secure mobile cloud
   - Privacy and anonymity cloud applications
   - Secure cloud for critical services (e.g., healthcare or finance)
   - Blockchain security
   - Blockchain consensus protocols
   - Blockchain in edge and cloud computing
   - Privacy and anonymity in blockchain applications
   - Decentralized internet infrastructure
