Call for Papers for the Secure Smart World Special Issue on Concurrency and Computation: Practice and Experience (CCPE)



This smart world is set to be the next important stage in human history, where numerous smart things communicate and collaborate so that many tasks and 

processes could be simplified, more efficient, and enjoyable. As the cornerstone technologies enabling a smart world, Internet of things (IoT) and artificial 

intelligence (AI) have been interacting with each other to stitch everything smart towards smart life. However, a myriad of sensitive data is generated, 

processed, and exchanged through the IoT devices and AI technologies, one of the fundamental problems is how to organically integrate IoT and AI to provide 

intelligent services in smart world without compromising security and privacy. This special issue aims to bring together researchers and practitioners in 

IoT, AI, and network security to share their novel ideas and latest findings to show how IoT and AI can work together to enable a secure smart world. 

This special issue will tackle the enabling technologies of a smart world. Original research articles are solicited, which include (but not limited to), the 

following topics:

- Novel IoT devices and infrastructure platforms in secure smart worlds

- Trust evaluation and management in smart worlds

- Secure smart city applications, including secure IoT/AI applications 

- Authentication and access control in secure smart worlds

- Secure policies, models and architectures for IoT and AI
