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 Conference Proceedings Citation Index, The Institution of Engineering and Technology, The DBLP Computer Science Bibliography, Engineering Index (EI) and SCOPUS.

Special Session on Measurable security for Embedded Computing and Communication Systems - MeSeCCS 2014

Security, Privacy and Dependability must be addressed in the context of Embedded Systems (ESs) as “built in” rather than as “add-on” functionalities.
This session will focus on this strategy and research works showing technologies improving security, privacy and dependability at different levels: node, network, middleware and overlay as well as real word application results are the objective of the session. At the same time, the use of metrics to determine security levels is desirable in order to measure the quality of the security solution, to (re-)validate or even to (re-)certificate them making this process faster, easier and widely accepted. Therefore research in security metrics for embedded systems is also within the scope of the special session.
