The last decade has witnessed an increased level of sophistication within embedded software running on different types of automobiles. Automobiles are classified as critical systems, as their failure could directly impact human safety or lead to loss of valuable assets, making their security and safety a major concern for users and designers. The automobiles or vehicles are primarily software controlled and communicate with each other, the cloud, and the transportation infrastructure via wireless networks. Given that, the underlying software that controls vehicles’ operations and the integrated communication technologies must be safe and secure.
The A3S workshop seeks to bring together researchers and practitioners working toward the improvement of security and safety of software solutions in the automobile sector by discussing recent developments and current challenges and exchanging their research findings and experiences. The workshop welcomes papers and presentations in the field of automobile software, dealing with vehicle software security and safety.
The list of topics includes, but is not limited to:
Authors are invited to submit original unpublished research papers as well as industrial practice papers. Simultaneous submissions to other conferences are not permitted. Detailed instructions for electronic paper submission, panel proposals, and review process can be found at https://qrs20.techconf.org/submission.
The length of a camera ready paper will be limited to eight pages, including the title of the paper, the name and affiliation of each author, a 150-word abstract, and up to 6 keywords. Shorter version papers (up to four pages) are also allowed.
Authors must follow the IEEE Computer Society Press Proceedings Author Guidelines to prepare their papers. At least one of the authors of each accepted paper is required to pay full registration fee and present the paper at the workshop. Arrangements are being made to publish selected accepted papers in reputable journals. Submissions must be in PDF format and uploaded to the conference submission site.Submission
