Welcome to participate in UbiSec 2021, Guangzhou, China, December 28 - 31, 2021! Guangzhou, a city in spring forever, is the capital city of Guangdong Province. Guangzhou is also the third largest city in China, located in the north of the Pearl River Delta, close to Hong Kong and Macau. With evergreen plants and flowers blooming all year round, the city has an alias of "City of Flowers". Guangzhou is one of the first batch of 24 historical and cultural cities released by the State Council, with more than 2200 years of history and profound cultural heritage, and also a major terminus of the maritime Silk Road. Guangzhou is one of the most famous tourist resorts in China, with a lot of tourist sites, such as Baiyun Mountain, Guangzhou Tower, and Yuexiu Park.

The 17th International Conference on Ubiquitous Security (UbiSec 2021) stems from three conference/symposium/workshop series:

(1) The well-established SpaCCS conference series with Springer LNCS (http://www.spaccs2020.com/): UbiSec is inspired by the SpaCCS style of three tracks (Security, Privacy, and Anonymity, "Spa" for short), which covers "Big Security" leveraging computation, communication and storage ("CCS" for short) systems and networks. UbiSec extends this style with three new tracks: Cyberspace Security, Cyberspace Privacy, and Cyberspace Anonymity.

(2) The UbiSafe symposium series (http://www.spaccs.org/UbiSafe2020/): UbiSec follows the UbiSafe vision on "Ubiquitous Safety", also meaning that "YOU (will) BE SAFE" (pronounced "UbiSafe"winking smiley. UbiSec extends this vision to "Ubiquitous Security", using "Big Security" to embrace NOT ONLY security, privacy and anonymity, BUT ALSO safety, reliability, dependability, trustworthiness and more, also meaning that "YOU (will) BE SEC(ure)" (pronounced "UbiSec"winking smiley.

(3) The IWCSS workshop series (http://ieee-trustcom.org/IWCSS2020/): UbiSec follows the IWCSS theme on "Cyberspace Security", with "Cyberspace" as the 5th national sovereign space besides the traditional four domains of land, sea, air, and aerospace. UbiSec extends this theme to "Ubiquitous Security", meaning that cyberspace will be secure, physical world will be secure, social networking systems will be secure, and thus "YOU (will) BE SECure"!

The UbiSec 2021 Conference ("The Conference" for short) is the 17th event in the series of conferences/symposia/workshops which are devoted to security, privacy and anonymity in cyberspace, physical world, and social networks. The Conference covers many dimensions including security algorithms and architectures, privacy-aware policies, regulations and techniques, anonymous computation and communication, encompassing fundamental theoretical approaches, practical experimental projects, and commercial application systems for cyberspace, physical world, and social networking systems. As applications of computer and information technology have permeated in every aspect of our daily life, the issues of security, privacy, and anonymity have become increasingly critical. The Conference will provide a forum for world-class researchers to gather and share their research achievements, emerging ideas and trends in the highly challenging research fields.
