University of Calabria – Rende, Italy – 25-27 September 2023 –


The first International Workshop on Trusted and Reliable Embedded Wireless Environments (TREWE 2023)

is a workshop focusing on the latest research results on the trustworthiness of embedded wireless environments,

which key issues enabling visionary scenarios such as the Internet of Things and Cyber-Physical Systems.

Accepted papers will be published in ACM as part of the EWSN 2023 proceedings.

Authors of accepted papers are expected to present their work in a plenary session as part of the main workshop program.

Proceedings will be indexed in the ACM Digital Library, SCOPUS, and other prominent digital libraries.



FEATURE TOPIC: Trusted and Reliable Embedded Wireless Environments


Embedded Wireless Devices (EWDs) are increasingly becoming pervasive, intelligent, and capable of supporting users

with potentially useful services by operating both autonomously and in cooperation with each other or human users

also across different environments. The rapid deployment of these devices has taken place at increasing risks

for the security and reliability of the services and even more in the presence of open and distributed systems

where most actors are mutually unreferenced with respect to their reliability and identity.

Therefore, to ensure and promote the deployment of EWDs, there is an increasingly pressing

need to create a comfortable atmosphere of trust in which they can operate safely,

an essential requirement for all Human-To-Machine (H2M) as well as Machine-To-Machine (M2M) interactions.

EWD can adopt cryptographic techniques and/or trust and reputation systems, even working synergistically.

The former is effective with respect to privacy and authentication issues, while the latter is particularly

suitable to mitigate the risks of untrustworthy partners, regardless of their physical or virtual nature.

Unfortunately, computational resources, memory, autonomy, and other constraints can be arduous obstacles

to face, requiring specific approaches and expertise to reduce the vulnerabilities of EWDs to risks and threats.

In this setting, several models and solutions dedicated to such environments have been developed, and the purpose

of this workshop is to gather the most interesting and innovative proposals in the field of embedded wireless devices.



SPECIFIC TOPICS of interest include but are not limited to:


Architecture and models for trusted medical and healthcare EWD-based applications;

Architecture and models for trusted transportation and smart cities applications;

H2M and M2M EWD interactions;

Interoperable and cooperative EWDs;

Modeling and simulation for trusted industrial EWD-based applications;

Privacy and security in EWD applications and systems;

Secure and reliable IoT EWD-based ecosystems;

Secure processing, storage, management and communication of EWD data;

Service accountability in EWD systems;

Sustainability and Green solutions;

Trust and Reputation systems for EWDs, Trusted EWD group formation;

Trusted smart home EWD-based applications.



Special Issues


Selected papers will be invited on a Special issue of the MDPI journals

Electronics (IF: 2.690)


Security and Trust in Internet of Things and Edge Computing


Big Data and Cognitive Computing (tracked for IF – this year)


Security, Privacy, and Trust in Artificial Intelligence Applications





Submission to TREWE 2023 must be original (i.e., not previously published) and not currently under review

by any other conference or journal. Submissions related to the featured topic are especially welcome, but all

other submissions in the scope of TREWE are equally welcome, all submissions will be evaluated based on the same criteria.

Will be accepted 4-6 page papers. TREWE 2023 will adopt a double-blind review process.

Authors must make a good faith effort to anonymize their submissions to ensure that their identities

are not disclosed to reviewers and reviewers are discouraged from actively working to uncover author identities.

To promote early dissemination, submission to arXiv (or similar) is allowed, provided cross-citations are not made.
