The 5th generation of mobile communication system (5G) is emerging as a disruptive technology across various vertical industries such as industry 4.0 and smart cities among others. In the field of industrial automation and manufacturing, 5G can transform the way manufacturing systems are realized and operated through providing real-time, reliable and secure communication services among the machines and their subsystems (a.k.a. Industrial IoT, and Industry 4.0). Similarly, 5G networks are soon becoming a vital part of future smart cities. These smart cities are expected to bring their own set of demands for network resources and these demands are expected to evolve with time.
The objective of this workshop is to bring together technical experts and researchers from industry and academia to discuss security issues that might arise when integrating 5G systems into different verticals.
We ask for stimulating, original, previously unpublished ideas on completed work, position papers, and/or work-in-progress papers in the form of extended abstracts. We further encourage papers that propose new research directions or could stimulate lively debate during the workshop.
Submissions must be original, unpublished work, and not under consideration at another conference or journal. Submitted papers must be at most six (6) pages long, including all figures, tables, references, and appendices in two-column format. The paper should follow the IEEE two-column page format, which is available at https://www.ieee.org/conferences_events/conferences/publishing/templates.html. Papers must include authors’ names and affiliations for single-blind peer reviewing by the PC. Authors of accepted papers are expected to present their papers at the workshop. Please submit your paper via EDAS.
