Welcome To The 2nd Workshop on Secure IoT, Edge and Cloud systems (SIoTEC) 2021

It's Nice To Meet You

May 10 - 13, 2021. Melbourne, Australia.


The Cloud/Edge paradigm fosters the deployment of digital services over multiple physical (both private and public) infrastructures even across different administrative boundaries. In its turn, the IoT advent has determined the proliferation of smart devices connected to the Internet and injecting into it a vast amount of data that may traverse several network boundaries and undergo many computational stages before they get consumed. If, on the one hand, the benefits brought by these technologies are well known, it is clear as well that, in the envisaged scenario, the exposure of data, services and infrastructures to malicious attacks has definitely grown. Even a single breach on any of the links of the data-service-infrastructure chain may seriously compromise the security of the end-user application. With such a wide attack surface, security must definitely approached in a holistic way and addressed in any layer where concerns may potentially arise. The workshop solicits novel and innovative ideas, proposals, positions and best practices that address the modelling, design, implementation, and enforcement of the security in Cloud/Edge/IoT environments.

Paper Submission

We invite original research papers that have not been previously published and are not currently under review for publication elsewhere.
Submitted papers should be no longer than 8 pages in two-column IEEE template format. All accepted papers will be published as part of the CCGRID proceedings. All previous CCGRID proceedings have been published by the IEEE and available online through IEEE Digital Library (EI indexing).

A "Best Paper Award" Certificate will be conferred on the author(s) of a paper presented at the workshop, selected by the Chairs based on scientific significance, originality and outstanding technical quality of the paper, as assessed also by the evaluations of the members of the Program Committee.

Best papers presented at the workshop will be selected and the corresponding authors will be invited to submit an extended version of their papers for possible publications in:
