International Workshop on Risk and Trust in New Network Developments

to be held in conjunction with the 10th International Conference on Availability, Reliability and Security
(ARES 2015 –

August 24-28, 2015
Université Paul Sabatier
Toulouse, France

The drive of being connected anywhere and anytime, the convenience of smart services, and advances in embedded computing have recently pushed new network developments. Several factors have contributed to this development, e.g., hardware advances (devices are smaller, more powerful, and batteries last longer), the heterogeneity of end-points (a range of devices and “intelligent things”), different architectures (networks of networks, self-configuring, opportunistic and ad-hoc networks), enhancements in technology (mobile, wireless, Bluetooth, RFID, NFC) and the ever more networked society (devices are increasingly affordable and ubiquitous). Such developments have created new network paradigms such as Vehicular Networks, Body Area Networks, Personal Area Networks, Smart Camera Networks, Virtualized Networks, Service-oriented Networks, Home Area Networks, and Named Data Networks.

Novelties in network architectures, technologies and applications raise numerous challenges in terms of risk and trust, and in the trade-off between them. This workshop aims to bring together researchers and practitioners, and foment discussion on risk and trust in emerging networks and how to best defend against their misuse. We encourage different types of contributions – surveys, technical and empirical contributions.

Topics of interest comprise but are not limited to:
Risk assessment
Trust management
Risk modelling, estimation, metrics
Challenges, attacks, and solutions
Novel architectures, topologies and technologies
Results of simulation, and testbed of trust models
New network paradigms and protocols
Trade-off between risk and trust
