Welcome to participate in UbiSec 2024, Changsha, China, December 29 -
31, 2024! Changsha is a famous historical and cultural city with a
variety of interest. This city has been an important grain production
base in China since ancient times. The green and verdant Mt. Yuelu
stands in the city and Xiangjiang River is clear as a mirror passing
through the city. Orange Isle lies in the heart of the river. In
particular, Changsha is very close to Chairman Mao's former residence
within one-hour driving. Nowadays, being an intellectual center,
Changsha has over 100 research institutions and engineering
laboratories. Hybrid rice breeding and the Tianhe supercomputer are
the main scientific research achievements.

The 4th International Conference on Ubiquitous Security (UbiSec 2024)
stems from three conference/symposium/workshop series:

(1) The well-established SpaCCS conference series with Springer LNCS:
UbiSec is inspired by the SpaCCS style of three tracks (Security,
Privacy, and Anonymity, "Spa" for short), which covers "Big Security"
leveraging computation, communication and storage ("CCS" for short)
systems and networks. UbiSec extends this style with three new tracks:
Cyberspace Security, Cyberspace Privacy, and Cyberspace Anonymity.

(2) The UbiSafe symposium series: UbiSec follows the UbiSafe vision on
"Ubiquitous Safety", also meaning that "YOU (will) BE SAFE"
(pronounced "UbiSafe"). UbiSec extends this vision to "Ubiquitous
Security", using "Big Security" to embrace NOT ONLY security, privacy
and anonymity, BUT ALSO safety, reliability, dependability,
trustworthiness and more, also meaning that "YOU (will) BE SEC(ure)"
(pronounced "UbiSec").

(3) The IWCSS workshop series: UbiSec follows the IWCSS theme on
"Cyberspace Security", with "Cyberspace" as the 5th national sovereign
space besides the traditional four domains of land, sea, air, and
aerospace. UbiSec extends this theme to "Ubiquitous Security", meaning
that cyberspace will be secure, physical world will be secure, social
networking systems will be secure, and thus "YOU (will) BE SECure"!

The UbiSec 2024 Conference ("The Conference" for short) is the fourth
event in the series of conferences/symposia/workshops which are
devoted to security, privacy and anonymity in cyberspace, physical
world, and social networks. The Conference covers many dimensions
including security algorithms and architectures, privacy-aware
policies, regulations and techniques, anonymous computation and
communication, encompassing fundamental theoretical approaches,
practical experimental projects, and commercial application systems
for cyberspace, physical world, and social networking systems. As
applications of computer and information technology have permeated in
every aspect of our daily life, the issues of security, privacy, and
anonymity have become increasingly critical. The Conference will
provide a forum for world-class researchers to gather and share their
research achievements, emerging ideas and trends in the highly
challenging research fields.

UbiSec 2024 follows the UbiSec 2023 conference in Exeter, UbiSec 2022
conference in Zhangjiajie and the UbiSec 2021 in Guangzhou, and also
the traditions of previous successful SpaCCS/UbiSafe/IWCSS
conference/symposium/workshop series, held in Nanjing, China (SpaCCS
2020/UbiSafe 2020), Guangzhou,China (IWCSS 2020); Altanta, USA (SpaCCS
2019/UbiSafe 2019), Guangzhou, China (IWCSS 2019); Melbourne,
Australia (SpaCCS 2018/UbiSafe 2018), Guangzhou China (IWCSS 2018);
Guangzhou, China (SpaCCS 2017/UbiSafe 2017/IWCSS 2017); Zhangjiajie,
China (SpaCCS 2016/UbiSafe 2016); Helsinki, Finland (UbiSafe 2015);
Beijing, China (UbiSafe 2014); Melbourne, Australia (UbiSafe 2013);
Liverpool, UK (UbiSafe 2012); Changsha, China (UbiSafe 2011); Chengdu
China (UbiSafe 2009); and Niagara Falls, Canada (UbiSafe 2007). The
conference aims at bringing together researchers and practitioners in
the world working in the research fields of security, privacy, and
anonymity aspects of computer systems and networks. The conference
will focus on broad areas of architectures, algorithms, techniques,
and applications for cyberspace security, cyberspace privacy, and
cyberspace anonymity.
