ARTMAN ― an ACM CCS 2023 workshop (November 30, 2023 - Copenhagen)

Workshop on Recent Advances in Resilient and Trustworthy ML Systems in Autonomous Networks


This workshop aims at bringing together academic researchers and industrial practitioners, from different domains with diverse expertise (mainly networking, security, machine learning), to collectively explore and discuss the topics about resilient and trustworthy autonomous networks, share their views, experiences, and lessons learned.

Topics of Interest

Topics of interest include (but are not limited to):

  • Threat modeling and risk assessment of ML systems and applications in autonomous networks, including, but not limited to, anomaly detection, failure prediction, root cause analysis, incident diagnosis
  • Data-centric attacks and defenses of ML systems and applications in autonomous networks, such as model evasion via targeted perturbations in testing samples, data poisoning in training examples
  • Adversarial machine learning, including adversarial examples of network data (e.g., time series, network traffic, logs, graph data) and adversarial learning algorithms developed for autonomous networks
  • ML robustness: testing, simulation, verification, validation, and certification of robustness of ML pipelines (not only ML algorithms and models) in autonomous networks, including but not limited to data-centric analytics, model-driven methods, and hybrid methods
  • ML system safety, which mainly addresses the topics related to ML system development and deployment environments, including hardware, ML platform and framework, software
  • Trust in ML systems and applications, which aims to explore the trust issues arising from the interactions between human users and machine learning systems, with particular focus on interpretable, explainable, accountable, transparent, reliable, and fair ML systems and applications in autonomous networks
  • Resilience by reaction: Leveraging AI/ML algorithms, especially knowledge-informed models, to improve resilience and trust of autonomous networks

Submission Guidelines

Papers can be submitted in two categories: regular and short ones.

  • Regular workshop paper submissions must be at most 10 pages in double-column ACM format, excluding the bibliography and well-marked appendices, and at most 12 pages overall.
  • Short papers are limited to 6 pages in total (4 pages without bibliography and appendices).
  • Papers should be prepared in ACM format using latex. Please follow the main CCS formatting instructions to prepare the submissions. The sigconf template is available here.
  • All submissions must be in English and properly anonymized.
  • All the accepted papers (both regular and short versions) will be included in the proceedings and published by the ACM Digital Library and/or ACM Press.
Please note that TPC members are not required to read the appendices, so the paper should be intelligible without them.
