1st International Workshop on Security and Privacy Aspects of Integrated Sensing and Communication (ISAC) in 6G

(S&P ISAC 2024)

Rationale and Scope

The interdisciplinary workshop aims to explore the security and privacy implications of Integrated Sensing and Communication (ISAC) technology, with a specific focus on its implementation in 6G networks. It will discuss technical as well as legal and regulatory aspects. The scope of the workshop may extend beyond ISAC, allowing discussions on related topics, such as data protection and provenance, privacy controls, legacy systems & ethical concerns, WLAN sensing security and privacy, datafication, and dataveillance, provided they have relevance to ISAC.

“Security and privacy in ISAC” is not only an emerging topic in the academia, but also popular and an active area of research in industries, standardization authorities, policy and law makers, and consultants. Consequently, the workshop is expected to attract a diverse audience spanning various fields.

ISAC has been under research for some time and seems to be a quite “hot topic” in the domain of the upcoming 6G networks. But so far only limited research and discussion in the space of ISAC security and privacy (S&P) has happened. That trend has been recently shifting in national and international projects with S&P topics getting more attention and traction. We believe the topic is critical for the success of ISAC feature in 6G and thus should be propelled forward and researchers should be promoted and supported in their efforts in this area.

The limited number of published papers around ISAC S&P often focuses on physical layers. We anticipate that the void in higher layers and by broadening the paper submissions topics to related matters, such as dataveillance, will make the workshop more appealing Moreover, we believe that the interdisciplinary nature of the workshop will foster a broader discussion among the various stakeholders regarding different aspects related to ISAC S&P.


Topics of Interest

Topics of interest include but are not limited to:

  • Sensing-specific security and privacy challenges and solutions
  • Case studies on security and privacy in ISAC
  • Threat analyses and mitigation strategies
  • Privacy risk management and impact assessments
  • Privacy-preserving ISAC implementation aspects
  • Anonymization and pseudonymization techniques for ISAC
  • Transparency, intervenability, and unlinkability challenges and solutions
  • Privacy controls and PETs applicable in ISAC and its use cases
  • Datafication and dataveillance challenges and solutions
  • Design of secure and privacy-aware next-generation equipment
  • Legal, regulatory, and ethical dimensions of ISAC
  • Cross-layer security challenges and solutions
  • Consent management and data provenance
  • Sensing and location privacy in ISAC
  • Machine learning and artificial intelligence for ISAC
  • Physical layer security for ISAC
  • Formal methods to reason about privacy in sensing
  • Prototype, practical testbeds, and performance evaluation
  • Opportunities and solutions to improve privacy with the help of ISAC (e.g. by substituting more privacy-invasive technologies by ISAC-based solutions)

Submission guidelines

Authors are invited to submit original contributions that have not been published or submitted for publication elsewhere. Papers should be prepared using the IEEE 2-column conference style and are limited to 6 pages including references.

They must be submitted electronically in PDF format through EDAS at: https://edas.info/N32595

Papers exceeding page limits, multiple submissions, and self-plagiarized papers will be rejected without further review. All other papers will sustain a thorough single-blind review process.

To be published in the 6GNet 2024 Conference Proceedings and to be eligible for publication in IEEE Xplore, an author of an accepted paper is required to register for the Workshop at the Full Author rate and the paper must be presented in person by one registered co-author.
