Dear Colleagues,
AutoSec'22 workshop (colocated at NDSS'22) paper/demo deadline is extended
by *1 week (now *Jan 10*, 2022)*. We're looking forward to your great
paper/demo contributions on security/privacy challenges in all kinds of
current and emerging vehicles, especially on emerging technologies such as
autonomy, driver assistance, and connectivity.

Please see the full CFP below.
Thank you,

AutoSec 2022: 4th International Workshop on Automotive and Autonomous
Vehicle Security (AutoSec 2022) co-located with NDSS 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

Areas of Interest
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) security
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 settings
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
Supporting infrastructure, e.g., charging, security for automotive and
aerial vehicles
Secure software/hardware development, e.g., debugging tools, emulators,
Submission Instructions
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

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