ACM Workshop on Wireless Security and Machine Learning (WiseML 2021)
Download the call for papers in PDF format.
The ACM Workshop on Wireless Security and Machine Learning (WiseML 2021) will be held in conjunction with the ACM Conference on Security and Privacy in Wireless and Mobile Networks (WiSec 2021). The workshop will be held virtually with online presentations. Accepted papers will appear in the conference proceedings and the ACM digital library.
Please note that the submission deadline is extended to April 22, 2021 and the acceptance notification is extended to May 15, 2021.
Scope and background
Artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning (ML) have proven to be invaluable tools for a diverse and far-reaching set of applications in wireless communications, networking, security, and situational awareness. ML systems based upon state-of-the-art neural network architectures, powered by the ever-more powerful hardware accelerators for computing, have been deployed for spectrum sensing applications (signal detection, estimation, classification, and identification), channel estimation and feedback, coding, waveform design, emitter identification, cognitive jamming and anti-jamming, among many others.
ML has emerged as a viable solution to effectively learn from spectrum data, solve complex tasks for IoT, 5G and beyond, and secure the emerging communication systems against adversaries. Recent research has demonstrated the efficacy of adversarial ML (AML) techniques to negatively impact the performance of ML based wireless systems. Consequently, the impact of AML on wireless technologies requires better understanding. On the other hand, the proliferation of wireless devices operating with diverse communication technologies in heterogenous spectrum environments has made them susceptible targets to various attacks. Harnessing efficient, robust AI/ML algorithms for wireless security that can operate under constrained power and computational resources, is of paramount importance for guaranteeing the integrity of wireless communications. Undoubtedly, an effort to investigate the interactions between ML and wireless security, privacy, and robustness, would be both timely and indispensable.
The purpose of this workshop is to bring together members of the ML, privacy, security, wireless communications and networking communities from around the world and offer them the opportunity to share the latest research findings in these emerging and critical areas, as well as to exchange ideas and foster research collaborations, in order to further advance the state-of-the-art.
