The 14th International Workshop on Cyberspace Security and Artificial
Intelligence (CAI-2022)

To be held in conjunction with IEEE TrustCom-2022, 
28-30 October 2022,
Wuhan, China


Submission deadline: 1 July 2022


With the fast development of 5G/6G, Internet of Things (IoT),
Cloud/Edge Computing, and Industry 4.0/5.0, Cyberspace Security is of
paramount importance and has become a burning issue that may hinder
the deployment of many innovative business models. Artificial
Intelligence (AI) has been penetrated into many sectors, e.g.,
manufacturing, energy and health, to facilitate automation on trust,
security, resilience and reliability. In addition, many of the
applications in these sectors, such as self-driving cars and remote
surgery, are critical and high stakes applications. The opaque
decision making, and bias and ethical issues of AI challenge the
safety of these applications. Cyberspace Safety has therefore been
attracting significant attention in recent years.

This workshop will address the important problems and challenges
caused by both AI for Cyberspace Security and Cyberspace Security for
AI. The workshop aims to bring together computer scientists and
engineers in different disciplines to share and exchange their
experience and ideas and discuss state-of-the-art and in-progress
research on all aspects of cyberspace security and AI.

This CAI workshop stemmed from the International Workshop on Security
in e-Science and e-Research (ISSR). This year's event has the core
theme of AI-powered Cyberspace Security and Safety, previously held as
CAI-21 (held in New York, USA, in conjunction with ISPA 2021), ISSR-20
(held in Nanjing, China, in conjunction with SpaCCS 2020), ISSR-19
(held in Atlanta, USA, in conjunction with SpaCCS 2019), ISSR-18 (held
in Melbourne, Australia, in conjunction with SpaCCS 2018), ISSR-17
(held in Guangzhou, China, in conjunction with SpaCCS 2017), ISSR-16
(held in Zhangjiajie, China, in conjunction with SpaCCS 2016), ISSR-15
(held in Columbus, USA, in conjunction with IEEE ICDCS-15), ISSR-14
(held in Vasteras, Sweden, in conjunction with IEEE COMPSAC-14),
ISSR-13 (held in Melbourne, Australia, in conjunction with IEEE
TrustCom-13), ISSR-12 (held in Liverpool, UK, in conjunction with IEEE
TrustCom-12), ISSR-11 (held in Changsha, China, in conjunction with
IEEE TrustCom-11), ISSR-10 (held in Taipei, Taiwan, in conjunction
with IEEE ISPA-10) and ISSR-09 (held in Chengdu, China, in conjunction
with IEEE ISPA-09).

to cyberspace security and AI. Topics of interest include but are not
limited to:

Paper Submission Guideline

Prospective authors are invited to submit manuscripts reporting
original unpublished research and recent developments in the topics
related to the workshop. The length of the papers should not exceed 6
pages + up to 4 pages for overlength charges (IEEE Computer Society
Proceedings Manuscripts style: two columns, single-spaced, 10-point
font), including figures and references.

The template files for LATEX or WORD can be downloaded: .

All papers will be peer reviewed and the comments will be provided to
the authors. Once accepted, the paper will be included into the IEEE
conference proceedings published by IEEE Computer Society Press
(indexed by EI).

Submission of a paper should be regarded as an undertaking that,
should the paper be accepted, at least one of the authors will
register for the conference and present the work.
