Call For Papers
The Grid is a rapidly developing computing structure that allows components of our information technology infrastructure, computational capabilities, databases, sensors, and people to be shared flexibly as true collaborative tools. Over the last 3 years there has been a real explosion of new theory and technological progress supporting a better understanding of these wide-area, fully distributed computing systems. After the advances made in distributed system design, collaborative environments, high performance computing and high throughput computing, the Grid is the logical next step.

Special Issue on Artificial Intelligence: The Security & Privacy Opportunities and Challenges for Emerging Applications
Submission Date: 2020-11-30

In recent years, the collection, processing, and analysis of personal data have become greatly convenient andwidespread, as the continuous advancement of emerging applications such as social networks, Internet of Things (IoT), and cloud computing. This also make sensitive information more vulnerable to abuses, and thus secure mechanisms and technologies tailored for emerging applications need to be explored urgently. Artificial Intelligence (AI) with the benefits of enhancing efficiency and improving accuracy has been widely used in academia and industry. From a privacy and security angle, AI brings about both opportunities and challenges for emerging applications. On the one hand, AI can help interested parties to better protect privacy in challenging situations, improving the state-of-the-art of security solutions. On the other hand, AI also presents risks of opaque decision making, biased algorithms, and safety vulnerabilities, challenging traditional notions of privacy protection. About the Topics of Interest Any topic related to security and privacy aspects in AI and AI-enabled emerging applications with security and privacy will be considered. All aspects of design, theory and realization are of interest. The scope and interests for the special issue include but are not limited to the following list: (i) Security & Privacy in AI ● Security AI modeling and architecture ● Secure multi-party computation techniques for AI ●Secure experiments, test-beds and prototyping systems for AI ● Novel cryptographic mechanism for AI ● Accelerated Machine Learning (ML) in a security environment ● Adversarial example (AE) research ● Generate Adversarial Network (GAN) research ● Attack and defense methods with AE ●Privacy-preserving ML ●Normative approaches to privacy in AI ●Security & privacy in robust statistics ●Security & privacy in online learning ●Adaptive side-channel attacks ●Security protocols for AI ●Security and privacy in data mining and analytics (ii) AI-Enabled Secure Emerging Applications ● AI for IoT security ● Privacy persevering ML in social network ●AI for spam detection ●AI for phishing detection and prevention ●AI for botnet detection ●AI for intrusion detection and response ●AI for malware identification ●AI for authorship identification ●AI for multimedia data security ● AI for enhance Privacy-Enhancing Technologies (PETs) ● AI-driven personalization of privacy assistance ● Vulnerability testing through intelligent probing ● AI -driven simplification or summarization of privacy policies ● AI analysis of privacy regulations ●AI systems defending against multiple attack vectors ●Biometrics security
