Special Sessions & Workshops

Special Session on Security and Privacy for the Internet of Things (SPIRIT)

This special session will focus on novel secure and privacy-ensuring techniques for services set-up in the Internet of Things (IoT) environment. The special session will study issues related to security and privacy that are inhibiting the utilisation of IoT technology.

Workshop on biometric identification

This workshop has a broad focus relating to identification techniques using different aspects of human appearance and/ or behaviour. This includes (but not limited to) use of fingerprints, iris, ears, face, fully body information, gait and voice. Fusion as well as single-modality techniques are welcomed, along with data that is real (e.g., photographic) or has been constructed in some way (e.g., from human memory). The session will be organised into a set of oral presentations followed by a general discussion.

Workshop on mobile malware analysis and detection mechanisms

This workshop will focus on how patterns can be reverse engineered and extracted from SMS, Call log, camera, audio and GPS exploitation for Android smartphone. The workshop will study how apoptosis (self-destruct mechanism from human immunology system) inspired us for the formation of the EzSiber model for mobile malware detection. The session will be organised into a set of oral presentations followed by a general discussion.

Workshop on Developing Smart Adaptable Assistive Robotic Technologies for Empowering the Disabled (EDUCAT)

Assistive Technologies can be prohibitively expensive, difficult to fully personalise, and require constant adjustment by technicians as the user’s needs change over time. This session will therefore focus on emerging technologies which can be easily personalised and can adapt, or can be made to adapt, to the assisted persons needs as they change. Particular focus will be given to smart powered wheelchairs, companion robots, robotic arms, navigation aids, computer aided teaching for rehabilitation, exoskeletons, intelligent prosthetics.
