GlobalSIP 2018:

Signal Processing for Adversarial Machine Learning

[Download the PDF Call for Papers]

Recent studies have highlighted the lack of robustness in state-of-the-art machine learning models. For instance, carefully crafted adversarial perturbations to natural images can easily cause modern classifiers trained by deep convolutional neural networks to yield incorrect predictions, while these adversarial examples can be made visually similar to the natural images, resulting in critical safety and security concerns of services and applications supported by machine learning models. Signal processing and black-box optimization techniques, such as manifold analysis, data transformation and zerothorder optimization, are becoming the core components in the research of adversarial machine learning. They are widely used to generate powerful adversarial examples to deceive target machine learning models and evade detection, as well as to provide robust and effective machinery against adversarial examples. This symposium aims to bring together researchers and practitioners from both academia and industry to report novel advances and to publish high-quality papers, in order to foster the field of signal processing for adversarial machine learning.

Submissions are welcome on topics including:

Paper Submission

Prospective authors are invited to submit full-length papers (up to 4 pages for technical content including figures and possible references, and with one additional optional 5th page containing only references) and extended abstracts (up to 2 pages, for paper-less industry presentations and Ongoing Work presentations).. Manuscripts should be original (not submitted/published anywhere else) and written in accordance with the standard IEEE double-column paper template. Accepted full-length papers will be indexed on IEEE Xplore. Accepted abstracts will not be indexed in IEEE Xplore, however the abstracts and/or the presentations will be included in the IEEE SPS SigPort. Accepted papers and abstracts will be scheduled in lecture and poster sessions.
