SITN workshop

The 5th International Workshop on Securing IoT Networks (SITN)
colocated to COLLABORATECOM 2021
October 15-17, 2021
Suzhou, People’s Republic of China

The Internet of Things (IoT) presents unprecedented opportunities for building smart society. Big data collected from numerous “Things”, connected to different interfaces and locations, facilitate smarter decision making and personalised services. Although all the hope of anticipated benefits from IoT, security remains a big challenge to overcome.
Manufacturers are yet shipping IoT devices with security flaws, which put users or even the other parts of our connected cyber world at risk. Those vulnerable IoT devices would be easily exploited to launch massive cyber attacks to other online services or IT infrastructures. All the privacy, robustness and security issues are challenging the movement towards smart society.
The SITN-2021 workshop is an international event, which aims to bring together expertise from academia and industry to build secure IoT infrastructures for smart society. It also provides a venue for international researchers and leading industry experts in IoT and cyber-security to establish future partnerships and research collaborations.
The SITN-2021 workshop will be held in Suzhou, People’s Republic of China and in collaboration with The Edinburgh Napier University, Abdul Wali Khan University Mardan, Pakistan, Technical University of Denmark, and the University of the West of England on October 15-17, 2021 and in parallel with the CollaborateCom 2021 – 17th EAI International
Conference on Collaborative Computing: Networking, Applications and Worksharing. All interested stakeholders from academia and industry are invited to submit their original work on building secure IoT infrastructures for Smart Society to the SITN-2021 workshop.
