Call for Papers
The 7th IEEE International Symposium on Security, Privacy and Anonymity in
Internet of Things (SpaIoT 2014)
Beijing, China, 24-26 September, 2014

In Conjunction with
The 13th IEEE International Conference on Trust, Security and Privacy in
Computing and Communications (TrustCom 2014)
Beijing, China, 24-26 September, 2014


With the extensive research and development of computer, communication
and control technologies, it is possible to connect all things to the
Internet such that the so-called Internet of Things (IoT) can be
formed. These things may be equipped with devices such as sensors,
actuators, and RFID tags, in order to allow people and things to be
connected anytime and anywhere, with anything and anyone. IoT will
enable collaborations and communications among people and things, and
among things themselves, which expand the current Internet and will
radically change our personal, corporate, and community
environments. When more and more things connect to the Internet,
security and privacy issues become more s erious, especially in the
case that these things are equipped with actuators and can support

For the better protection of secure communication and user privacy,
including location, identity and behavior habits, it is necessary to
develop anonymous communication theories, methods and key technologies
of anonymous communication systems in all varieties of application
environments. Anonymous communication is used to hide communication
participants or communication relations so as to achieve effective
protection for network nodes and user identities. Anonymous
communication can address potential network security issues, and
becomes one of the hot topics in the field of network and information

Scope and Interests

(2) Security, privacy platforms for IoT
(3) Security, privacy applications for IoT
(4) Architecture for anonymous communication system
(5) Resilience to external and internal attacks in IoT
(6) Anonymity measures and evaluation
(7) Anonymous communication in IoT
(8) Anonymous communication & privacy protection
(9) Anonymous communication & privacy protection
(10) Anonymous browsing system

Submission and Publication Information

All presented papers in the conference will be published in the
proceedings of the conference and submitted to the IEEE Xplore Digital
Library. Papers should be written in English conforming to the IEEE
conference proceedings format (8.5" x 11", Two-Column). Papers should
be submitted through the paper submission system at the symposium
website.  Each paper is limited to 6 pages (or 8 pages with the over
length charge).  Distinguished papers, after further revisions, will
be considered for possible publication in SCI & EI indexed special
issues of prestigious international journals.  The program committee
will select and award one "Best Paper Award" for this symposium. By
submitting a paper to the conference, authors assure that if the paper
is accepted, at least one author will attend the conference and
present the paper.
