Robots will be the next big thing. Great progress has be seen in the robot community both in academy and industry. However, when the intelligent robots go into every family, the security issue should be taken into consideration. The home robots contain smart speakers, smart cameras, education robots, housework robots etc.  These robots have ears, eyes and arms. The user data are always sent to the cloud servers for processing. The privacy of the users may be leaked by the robot ears and eyes. The human may be hurt by the robot arms or the robot itself.  Nowadays, plenty of deep neural networks (DNNs) are embedded into robots to enhance the ability of perception of the real world surrounded. However, the attack methods on DNNs are increasing, which may let the robots make wrong decision. Thus, the privacy-preserving issues and the defense on the DNNs attacks are the two main topics of this workshop.

The topics of the Robot Security include but not limited to the followings:

  • Privacy-preserving Computing for Robots
  • Blind Computing for Robots
  • Secure Multi-party Computing for Robots
  • Secret Sharing for Multi-robot systems
  • Homomorphic Encryption for Robots
  • Symmetric Encryption for Robot systems
  • Public key System for Robots
  • Attack and Defense on Speech Recognition
  • Attack and Defense on Image Recognition
  • Attack and Defense on Face Recognition
  • Attack and Defense on Intelligent Video Surveillance
  • Attack and Defense on Gait Recognition
  • Attack and Defense on Activity/Event Recognition
  • Attack and Defense on RGBD Data Recognition
  • Physical Security of Robots
  • Cloud Computing Security for Robots
  • Active Defense of Robots

Please note that paper length is 4-6 pages, and the review process will be double-blind.
