Call for Papers

EAI SPNCE 2023 will be held as an on-site conference and if needed, Accepted Authors who are unable to attend the event in person will be given an option to present remotely.


The widespread adoption of 5G/6G, Internet of Things (IoT), and artificial intelligence (AI) has brought about significant benefits in terms of scalability, efficiency, and productivity. However, 5G/6G technology has created more segmented application scenarios, diversified applications and demands, resulting in a more complex security and defense system. IoT devices have become a key target for hackers due to their limited security capabilities and zero-day vulnerabilities. Massive smart devices have greatly promoted the AI applications, but also greatly increases the attack surfaces. The increased use of these technologies poses significant security and privacy risks that must be addressed to ensure the security and safety of these technologies.

This call for papers invites researchers, practitioners, and experts in the field of security and privacy to submit original research articles, case studies, review articles, and survey papers on topics related to security and privacy problems in IoT, 5G/6G and AI. The aim of this conference is to provide a platform for the dissemination of the latest research findings, best practices, and emerging trends in the field of security and privacy in these technologies.

Additional publication opportunities:

Paper submission

Papers should be submitted through EAI ‘Confy+‘ system, and have to comply with the Springer format (see Author’s kit section).

  • Regular papers should be up to 12-15+ pages in length.
  • Short papers should be 6-11 pages in length.

All conference papers undergo a thorough peer review process prior to the final decision and publication. This process is facilitated by experts in the Technical Program Committee during a dedicated conference period. Standard peer review is enhanced by EAI Community Review which allows EAI members to bid to review specific papers. All review assignments are ultimately decided by the responsible Technical Program Committee Members while the Technical Program Committee Chair is responsible for the final acceptance selection.
