Special Track “Trust on the Road”

The special track “Trust on the road” aims to attract researchers and practitioners investigating issues of trustworthiness, security, privacy, and overall trust in automotive systems. Such systems range from the individual vehicle to vehicles communicating both with other vehicles (v2v) and with the physical infrastructure around them (v2i) as well as vehicles forming ad-hoc networks and using cloud-based networks for various services. The trustworthiness of exchanged information, the security of the connections, the privacy of the data, and the trust of the user in the provided services are crucial for the acceptance and proliferation of such safety-critical technology. In the context of the special track, we aim to explore the current state of the art and future research directions with perspectives from researchers as well as representatives of the automotive industry.

In particular, we are interested in novel contributions with regard to the following topics focusing on trust within the automotive domain:

  • Trust, security, privacy, liability, and dependability in vehicular networks
  • Trust models and architectures for vehicular networks
  • Security engineering, formal methods, development and validation tools
  • In-vehicle communications (wireless or wired), in-vehicle architecture and system design
  • Vehicle-to-vehicle (V2V) communications and integration with on-board systems and networks
  • Vehicle-to-infrastructure (V2I) communications and protocols
  • Security of software downloads and remote diagnostics
  • In-vehicle communications and trust enhancing architectures (wireless or wired)
  • Security and privacy issues when using cloud services
  • Results from experimental systems, testbeds, and pilot studies
  • Awareness applications in vehicular networks
  • Applications and services to enhance safety, performance, and driver behavior
  • Standardization efforts w.r.t. security, privacy and safety

Papers submitted to the special track will be considered by subject matter experts in the program committee.
