Special Sessions

Special sessions are very small and specialized events to be held during the conference as a set of oral and poster presentations that are highly specialized in some particular theme or consisting of the works of some particular international project. The goal of special sessions (minimum 4 papers; maximum 9) is to provide a focused discussion on innovative topics. All accepted papers will be published in a special section of the conference proceedings book, under an ISBN reference, and on digital support. All papers presented at the conference venue will be available at the SCITEPRESS Digital Library. SCITEPRESS is a member of CrossRef and every paper is given a DOI (Digital Object Identifier). The proceedings are submitted for indexation by Thomson Reuters Conference Proceedings Citation Index (ISI), DBLP, EI (Elsevier Engineering Village Index), Scopus, Semantic Scholar and Google Scholar.

5G is an emerging technology able to support a massive number of devices with their sensors for high bandwidth and low latency connectivity. On the interplay between heterogeneous networks and devices (e.g., IoT, vehicles and smart-meters), 5G will be the enabler for interactions among various and different devices. Thus, heterogeneous systems and the vast amounts of data transferred to and from the infrastructure and between devices will create new challenges, inflict new security and privacy issues. This special session aims at collecting research contributions on identifying, reporting and discussing security and privacy threats on 5G systems and its applications. It also intends to foster discussions on secure and privacy-enhancing solutions in 5G networks and its applications.
