DATE 2022 fully virtual event

DATE 2022: fully virtual event -- ONSITE days moved ONLINE

We have been planning a special format for DATE 2022, aiming at bringing back the community together after two editions online, trying to balance the uncertainty of the situation and the desire to be partially back in presence. A special program has been organized to start the conference with two days in presence, full of outstanding talks and moments to meet and chat.
However, the current situation of the covid-19 infections across Europe and the consequent travelling/quarantine restrictions adopted by governments, companies and institutions have a strong impact on our health concerns and travelling opportunities, for speakers as well as attendees.
The "in presence" experience remains a fundamental aspect of any conference and of DATE in the specific, for its many networking moments, as well as for the social activities, however the safety of the community is once more a priority. Therefore, after thoughtfull discussion, the DATE Steering Committee opted to move DATE 2022 to a completely virtual event, moving the program of the first two days online also.

Although there is no way to mitigate the disappointment of not being able to meet in person, we trust the rich and interesting program will bring us together online to comment and contribute to the exciting talks and conversations with the speakers and authors of full DATE 2022 program.

  1. What makes the project concept unique?
    In the CARAMEL project, we strive to implement machine-learning based detection of attacks against the connected and/or autonomous vehicle by analysing sensor data, V2X data, and the status of embedded controllers like the OBU (on-board unit) in real time using a tamper-proof device that directly integrated into the car - the anti-hacking device (AHD). This architecture and concept is novel and innovative, and CARAMEL is the first project to implement and demonstrate this.
  2. What project outcomes can be of use to the DATE 2022 community?
    Even as CARAMEL implements its concepts and architectures in the automotive space, the key CARAMEL innovations are transferable to other IoT and Embedded applications domains as well, such as factory floors, building automation systems or others. Therefore, the CARAMEL presentation and presence of CARAMEL representatives during the conference would be of value to the DATE 2022 community.
  3. What inputs (solutions) are expected from the DATE 2022 community?
    In the CARAMEL project, several integration options for the anti-hacking device based on different IoT devices have been pursued already. However, in order for the concept to be commercially viable and cost-effective, the concept of a machine-learning-based intrusion device must be even better integrated into commercial offerings for the Automotive and IoT market. The DATE 2022 community could provide valuable input for that endeavour.
  4. What new research topics and trends the project introduces?
    CCAM and IoT both will face important security challenges in the future as bad actors discover these new areas for their activities. Since bad actors will use machine learning to subvert machine-learning based processes and algorithms in the CCAM and IoT world (eg. using Generative Adversarial Networks (GAN)), a trend in the security industry is also to use machine learning to detect and counter these attacks. The CARAMEL project showcases this approach in the Automotive context.
