Call for Papers

EAI PFSM 2022 will be held as a fully-fledged online conference.

In 2021, EAI successfully launched an online conference format to ensure the safety, comfort and quality of experience for attendees and a successful course of the events, all while retaining fully live interaction, publication and indexing. Due to the unrelenting global pandemic, this will also be the case in 2022.
Although we will miss having everyone meet and connect in person, we feel strongly that knowledge exchange must continue, if not more so. That is why we have equipped our online conferences with live viewing with chat, virtual Q&A, and a multitude of other measures to provide you with a great experience. Learn more about EAI’s online conferences.


The main theme of this special program is to highlight the cutting-edge technologies for Information Security, Privacy Preservation and Digital Forensics investigations to help build privacy-aware, secure, safe and resilient Smart Mobility systems for Smart Cities.
