TrustBus

21th International Workshop on Trust, Privacy and Security in the Digital Society

to be held in conjunction with the 19th International Conference on Availability, Reliability and Security

July 30 – August 02, 2024

New computing paradigms, such as cloud computing, big data or the Internet of Things, open new horizons to citizens, businesses and our whole society worldwide. All these developments ultimately aim to improve our quality of life, make it easier to generate wealth, and ensure that businesses remain competitive in the global marketplace. These developments have been made possible in a remarkably short time span because information and communication technologies move fast; sometimes, they move too fast for society and governments. This explains why such rapid technological evolutions cannot be problem-free. In the domain of a digital society, concerns are raised regarding the lack of trust in electronic procedures and the extent to which information security and user privacy can be ensured.

Logo TrustBus 2024The TrustBus series of conferences has a long tradition going back as an annual event to 2004. In answer to the concerns mentioned above, the 21st edition of the International Conference on Trust, Privacy and Security in Digital Society (TrustBus 2024) will be held as an ARES 2024 workshop. It will provide an international forum for researchers and practitioners to exchange information regarding advancements in the state of the art and practice of trust and privacy in the digital society. TrustBus 2024 will bring together researchers from different disciplines, developers, and users, all interested in the critical success factors of the technical advances of our digital systems.
