First Intl. Workshop on Safety, securiTy, and pRivacy In automotiVe systEms 
co-located with SAFECOMP 2018
September 18th, 2018, Västerås, Sweden

Scope: The introduction of ICT systems into vehicles make them more
prone to cyber-security attacks. Such attacks may impact on vehicles
capability and, consequently, on the safety of drivers,
passengers. The strong integration among dedicated ICT devices, the
physical environment, and the networking infrastructure, leads to
consider modern vehicles as Cyber-Physical Systems (CPS).

This workshop aims at providing a forum for researchers and engineers
in academia and industry to foster an exchange of research results,
experiences, and products in the automotive domain from both a
theoretical and practical perspective. Its ultimate goal is to
envision new trends and ideas about aspects of designing,
implementing, and evaluating innovative solutions for CPS with a
particular focus on the new generation of vehicles. Indeed, the
automotive domain presents several challenges in the fields of
vehicular network, Internet of Things, Privacy, as well as Safety and
Security methods and approaches. The workshop aims at presenting the
advancement on the state of art in these fields and spreading their
adoption in several scenarios involving main stockholders of the
automotive domain.

The list of relevant topics includes (may be not limited to):
Architecture, design, and implementation of safe and secure
Cyber-Physical Systems;
Automated Vehicular Technologies;
Vehicular Communications and Networks;
In-Vehicle communication protocols;
User-to-Vehicle interactions and communications;
Software Process Development in Automotive systems;
Security threats and vulnerabilities of Cyber-Physical Systems;
Safety and Security Trade-off and Convergences;
Cooperative/collaborative vehicular systems;
Cyber-security solutions for connected and autonomous vehicles;
Privacy of vehicular data;
Driver behaviour characterization;
Standardization and Interoperability.

Welcome domains of application are (may be not limited to):
Vehicular Network;
Internet of Things;
Cyber-Physical Systems;
Smart cities and Smart environment.
