The 7th International Symposium on Trust, Security and Privacy for Emerging Applications (TSP 2017)
Guangzhou, China, December 12-15, 2017


In Conjunction with SpaCCS 2017
[The 10th International Conference on Security, Privacy and Anonymity in Computation, Communication and Storage]




TSP 2017 is a timely event that aims at bringing together researchers and practitioners in the world working on trust, security, and privacy issues in social networks, cloud computing, Internet of Things (IoT), wireless sensor networks, and other networking environments or system applications; and providing a forum for them to present and discuss emerging ideas and trends in this highly challenging research area.

Satisfying user requirements for trust, security and privacy in an efficient way is one of the first considerations for almost all emerging applications, using emerging technologies such as pervasive computing, peer to peer computing, grid computing, cloud computing, virtualization and, mobile and wireless technologies. Challenges arise as emerging applications evolve to provide more scalable and comprehensive services. One of the biggest challenges is that traditional security technologies and measures may not meet user requirements in open, dynamic, heterogeneous, and distributed computing environments. Therefore, we need to build networks and systems in which emerging applications allow users to enjoy more scalable and comprehensive services while preserving trust, security and privacy at the same time.

Following the success of TSP 2008 in Shanghai, China during December 17-20, 2008, TSP-09 in Macau SAR, China, during October 12-14, 2009, TSP-10 in Bradford, UK, during June 29-July 1, 2010, TSP-13 in Zhangjiajie, China, during November 13-15, 2013, TSP-15 in Zhangjiajie, China, during November 18-20, 2015, and TSP-16 in Zhangjiajie, China, during November 16-18, 2016, "The 7th International Symposium on Trust, Security and Privacy for Emerging Applications (TSP-17)" will be held in Guangzhou, China, during December 12-15, 2016, in conjunction with "SpaCCS 2017 [the 10th International Conference on Security, Privacy and Anonymity in Computation, Communication and Storage]"
