The description was submitted by the Conference Organizer. We sometimes edit it to enhance the listing.
The interconnectivity of our systems and devices enables development and use of smart applications with increasingly higher efficiencies but at the same time creates a number of security and privacy challenges. From smart home devices to industrial control systems and from mobile phones to cars, everything is nowadays connected to the Internet, one way or another. With the attack surface reaching a record high, cyberattacks have become an everyday word and concern. At the same time, privacy issues and needs for protection of data are still major challenges even though regulations like GDPR try to address the problem. This year, the 12th CMI Conference discusses the topics of cybersecurity and privacy and attempts to answer the twofold question: how will cybersecurity and privacy be shaped in the future and how much will cybersecurity and privacy influence the future? In addition, the question of how to balance security and privacy with the ‘checks and balances’ needed for businesses and society is also raised.
The goal of the CMI conference is to bring together students, researchers, and professionals from the academia and the industry that share a common interest on the topics of cybersecurity and privacy. The conference welcomes manuscripts describing novel and work-in-progress research as well as negative results, lessons learned and state of knowledge (SoK) contributions. Furthermore, this year’s CMI conference will also accept poster submissions in the form of extended abstracts (2 pages).
