FLI Coventry University

Topic:
1st International Conference on Cyber Security for Sustainable Society 2015

Dates:
26-27th February 2015

Venue:
Coventry University, United Kingdom

Information:
Modern society aspires to be economically and socially sustainable.

The digital infrastructure underpinning our society allows us to achieve these goals by various mechanisms including online social networks, trust and reputation, peer-to-peer and content sharing, secure transactions and online voting. Such mechanisms however are at increasing risk from cyber attacks, industrial espionage, online fraud and government surveillance; each serving to undermine trust and security at different levels. This conference offers a unique platform to address the issues of cyber security and trust in the context of sustainable societies. Authors are invited to submit original research papers addressing theoretical foundations, modelling and empirical approaches, along with more exploratory work, and position papers to raise open questions.

Topics:
Topics of interest include but are not limited to:
– Cyber Attacks (Phishing, Reputation Attacks)
– Identity, Trust and Trustworthiness
– Privacy, Surveillance and Control
– Reputation Systems and Social Networks

– Human Factors and Behavioural Dynamics
– Ethics, Philosophy, Politics and Innovation
– Security Economics, Incentives and Liabilities
– Low Carbon and Resilient City and Transport
