Workshop on Security and Privacy-Enhanced Big Data (SPEBD)
InfoSec Conference Summary
The description was submitted by the Conference Organizer. We sometimes edit it to enhance the listing.
The increasing interconnectedness that is being embraced by society has led to a dramatic increase in data produced by individuals’ activities. As the world around us is increasingly absorbed into the Internet of Things (IoT), nearly all of our activities are recorded and transitioned to various datasets for a variety of uses, from targeted advertising to making medical and financial judgements and beyond. In fact, many people and organizations enthusiastically adopt IoT, Social Media, and other technology platforms without giving any thought to the security and privacy of the data that they are creating. As data breaches become more commonplace, people are becoming aware that their data may be at greater risk. It is easy to despair that security and privacy are antiquated concepts, rendered obsolete by the collection and processing of the big data in modern life.
This workshop aims to highlight emerging security and privacy challenges as enterprises continue to adopt and incorporate big data capabilities and technologies into business operations. Additionally, we highlight research into technologies and techniques that will mitigate these challenges. The organizers maintain that individuals and organizations need not relinquish expectations of security and privacy in order to live in a society that makes use of the power of big data analytics. We invite research into new and innovative methods, techniques, and proofs-of-concept supported by strong theory/algorithms and simulation/experiments to submit Regular Papers for this workshop. We are also accepting Demo Papers where authors can showcase developed technology and processes as well as present code for review. Finally, we are accepting Off-the-Wall Papers, where authors may present groundbreaking and novel ideas that will be judged for their novelty as well as the plausibility of their argumentation.
