Title: Chaos Communication and Information Security
With the development of information network, the requirements for information security are increasing.
Information security technology means the technical and management methods for security protection which are established and adopted for the data processing system to protect computer hardware, software and data from damage, change and disclosure due to accidental and malicious reasons. It includes intrusion detection technology, firewall and virus protection technology, digital signature and biometric technology, decryption and encryption technology, access control technology, safety protection technology, identity authentication technology and so on.
Among them, encryption technology can eﬀectively prevent from many attacks such as wiretapping and other attacks.The chaotic signal, similar to a random signal, has a very complicated trajectory and is diﬃcult to predict.Therefore, it has inherent concealment and is widely used in encryption technology. Its initial value sensitivityand good auto-correlation are conducive to obtain more non-interference chaotic signals, which can be realized byFPGA platform and ﬁeld programmable analog array (FPAA); the noise like and low-frequency featureslead to the low power consumption, which make chaos communication a hot research area.
The aim of this workshop is to bring together the research accomplishments provided by researchers from chaos communication and information security. The other goal is to show the latest research results in the field ofchaos communication and information security, and understand how chaos communicationincrease security. We encourage prospective authors to submit related distinguished research papers on the subject.

Title: Distributed Intelligence Empowered 6G Internet of Vehicles
Keywords: Internet of Vehicles, Distributed Intelligence, Mobile Edge Computing, Quality of Service
Sixth generation (6G) networks combine various sub-network together, aiming to establish a highly dynamic and intelligent system with a heterogeneous structure. With the advance of network performance in 6G, Internet of Vehicles (IoV) will be further developed whereby the fully connected vehicle-road-cloud intelligent perception and collaborative decision-making system will significantly improve the road safety, traffic efficiency, and driving experience. Nevertheless, this could introduce new security and privacy challenges into the system design. In addition, the 6G integrated space-air-ground communication system will help to realize autonomous driving in all scenarios; the intelligent mobile edge computing system will promote the large-scale application of low-cost intelligent vehicles; the digital twin system covering all areas will realize data-driven intelligent city-level traffic management; the blockchain-enabled distributed system will provide distributed trust and security concerns during the data sharing and transactions dealing around vehicles.
To achieve these goals, strict and customized quality-of-service requirements should be satisfied. Therefore, the enormous amount of IoV data needs to be effectively processed, and the diversified resources, e.g., communication, computing, and storage resources should be flexibly managed in different granularities. To meet the diversified requirements of the above-mentioned systems, Edge Intelligence (AI) is a promising technique to address these issues. On the other hand, because of the limitation of the centralized system on time-sensitive analysis, low bandwidth transmission, cost constraint scenario, and privacy protection applications, there exists an urgent demand for decentralized training and learning technologies.
This workshop aims to collect original research and review articles on the use of distributed intelligent technologies in the development of safety-guaranteed, security-enhanced, and diversify QoS-satisfied applications for 6G IoV.

Title: Intelligence in Cloud End —— Cloud Serving for General Web Data Intelligence
Keywords: Artificial Intelligence, Cloud Service, Deep learning, Development and Operating Environments, Massive Data, SAAS, Software Services
With the rapid growth of heterogeneous and massive data, more and more enterprises need to customize their own software services. At the same time, the growth of services and software systems will generate more data. In order to satisfy the business requirements of software, users frequently have to customize and evolve their own data management systems. Due to the professionalism and complexity of programming, using traditional software development by case-by-case coding is still difficult in terms of flexibility, timelines and economy. At the same time, during the coding process, the programmer usually requires a lot of time cost for learning background knowledge. For all the ordinary users, how to realize the unified coordination of data management system construction, data statistical analysis and artificial intelligence services in the cloud under the premise of reducing the learning cost and time cost is an urgent problem to be solved. Therefore, this study focuses on the software architecture and implementation of intelligent Web data management system based on cloud service mode, so as to reduce the time cost and learning cost required by users to manage and maintain data as much as possible, and provide users with secure cloud data management services and intelligent learning services.
