Cybersecurity is the set of technologies, processes and practices designed to protect networks, computers, programs and data from attack, damage or unauthorized access. In a computing context, security includes both cybersecurity and physical security. The driving theme at CSNet 2019 is Cyber Security in Networking. The technological disruption is generating an impact on society and leading to a new industrial revolution. This social and industrial change presents new technological environments constituted by ubiquitous systems and large amounts of information, which requires a change in the way how cybersecurity is applied. The use of big data, machine learning, data science, data mining, strengthens the cognitive skills of security analysts to face new forms of cybersecurity attacks. This new trend, called cognitive security, poses new challenges for researchers and companies to seek proactive security proposals according to this technological change.

CSNet’19 invites proposals for full-day or half-day workshops. The purpose of the workshops  is  to complement  the  conference  program   with  in-depth  or integration fora  that are  dedicated  to related and  emerging topics (i.e. RFID/NFC security, cloud security, blockchain and smart-contracts, security protocols,  etc.) or  other specific topics of  CSNet’19. Proposals fromindustry and academia are welcome. Accepted  and  presented  workshop papers will  be published  in the  conference proceedings and will be submitted to IEEE Xplore.



*** Workshop proposal submissions ***

Each CSNet workshop proposal has to be submitted  in a single PDF file and must include:

– Name and abbreviation of the workshop

– Names, addresses, and a short (200 words) bio of the major organizers

(including TPC (Co )chair(s) and OC General (Co-)chair(s))

– A  brief  description (1 page)  of   the technical focus  addressed  by the

workshop, reasons why the workshop is of interest at this time, and reasons

why  this area is  important in the context  of CSNet’19 and main theme;

additionally, state explicitly why this workshop is unique.

– Technical Program Committee (TPC) and/or Organizing Committee (OC)

– Likely contributors and targeted audience
