Dear Colleagues,
I'd like to share Call for Papers for
Fourth International Workshop on Automotive and Autonomous Vehicle Security
(AutoSec 2022)
Affiliated with the Network and Distributed System Security (NDSS)
Symposium 2022
27 February – 3 March 2022

Ground and aerial vehicles such as cars, buses, trucks, airplanes, and
drones make the whole world increasingly convenient and connected. Due to
their growing usage and highly safety-critical nature, security/privacy
problems pose direct threats to passengers, owners, operators, as well as
the environment. Recently, there has been a substantial demand to increase
vehicle autonomy and connectivity, such as autonomous driving, drone
delivery, vehicle-to-everything (V2X) communication, intelligent
transportation, and drone swarm. Such trends further exacerbate
security/privacy problems and require urgent attention from both academia
and industry. To meet this critical need, the AutoSec workshop will bring
together an audience including university researchers, scientists, industry
professionals, and government representatives to contribute to new
theories, technologies, and systems for security/privacy challenges in all
kinds of current and emerging vehicles, and their supporting
infrastructures, especially on the emerging technologies such as autonomy,
driver assistance, and connectivity. AutoSec 2022 will be held in a hybrid
fashion in conjunction with the Network and Distributed System Security
Symposium (NDSS) 2022.

*Demo session:* AutoSec will feature a demo session to allow academic
researchers and industry companies to share demonstrations of their latest
attacks, defenses, tools, or systems on automotive and autonomous vehicles.

*Awards: *All accepted papers and demos will be considered for Best Paper
Award and Best Demo Award. The winner and runner-up will win cash prizes.
In addition, a special AutoDriving Security Award will be given to one of
the accepted papers to recognize and reward research that makes substantial
contributions to secure today’s emerging autonomous driving technology. We
may also provide a few Travel Awards for students with paper/demo

*We accept (1) regular papers with up to 6 pages, (2) short position papers
or work in progress papers with up to 4 pages, and (3) demo papers with up
to 1 page, all in double-column NDSS format. *

*The page limits do not include bibliography and well-marked appendices,
which can be up to 2 pages long for each regular or short/work-in-progress
paper, and up to 1 page long for each demo paper.*

Submissions can be anonymized for review, but this is not required. Demo
papers must have “Demo:” in their titles.
Submission of papers and demos is through the Easychair conference system
at https://easychair.org/conferences/?conf=autosec2022.
Submission Guidelines: see

The proceedings will be published by the Internet Society after NDSS.

Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:

   - Embedded/sensor/analog security and forensics
   - Secure perception, localization, and planning in autonomous vehicles
   - Safety/security verification for autonomous driving/flight
   - In-vehicle network, e.g., CAN bus, and Vehicle-to-everything (V2X)
   - Compliance with legal, safety, and environmental policies
   - Secure integration of hardware and software systems for automotive and
   aerial vehicles
   - Secure software/hardware updates in automotive and aerial vehicle
   - Privacy challenges in automotive and aerial vehicle settings, e.g.,
   driver and passenger privacy, drone spying, etc.
   - Privacy-preserving data sharing and analysis in automotive and aerial
   vehicle settings
   - Electric/medium/heavy-duty vehicle system security
   - Security/privacy in Intelligent Transportation System (ITS), e.g.,
   vehicle platooning
   - Supporting infrastructure, e.g., charging, security for automotive and
   aerial vehicles
   - Secure software/hardware development, e.g., debugging tools,
   emulators, testbed
