The 2019 International Workshop on Explainable Artificial Intelligence for Cyberspace (EAIC 2019)


Artificial Intelligence (AI) has been widely adopted in various applications ranging from machine translation to image analysis. However, recent studies show that the AI technologies, particular complex deep neural networks are vulnerable to adversarial attacks in the form of subtle perturbations to the inputs that lead to incorrect result. The intrinsic vulnerability is referred to AI security.

The 2019 International Workshop on Explainable Artificial Intelligence for Cyberspace (EAIC 2019) aims to bring together researchers, engineers, students in both academic and industrial communities who concern about the explanation and interpretability of deep learning models and the security of applying these AI technologies in critical applications for cyberspace, such as in cloud computing, Internet of Things (IoT), cyber physical systems (CPS), intelligent city, big data systems, etc. Research from various domains, including but not limited to data mining, machine learning, probabilistic models, distributed computing, explainable neural networks, interpretable theory of artificial intelligence, and cyberspace applications are highly appreciated. Attendees are invited to introduce their latest research results (theories/innovations/algorithms) on explainable artificial intelligence and how these innovations can be applied in real-world cyberspace applications.

Workshop areas:

Topic interest include but not limited to:

  1. Theory of explainable artificial intelligence
  2. New explainable models
  3. Explainable algorithms for cyberspace applications
  4. Scalable, distributed and parallel algorithms
  5. Big data analysis frameworks
  6. Deep learning for big data
  7. Attack methods of deep neural networks
  8. Defense methods of deep neural networks
  9. Evaluate interpretability techniques

Paper Submission:

All submissions should be written in English and submitted via our submission system through Easychair A paper submitted to EAIC 2019 cannot be under review for any other conference or journal during the entire period that it is considered for EAIC 2019, and must be substantially different from any previously published work. Submissions are reviewed in a single-blind manner.. Please note that all submissions must strictly adhere to the LNCS (Lecture Notes in Computer Science) templates. The templates also act as a guideline regarding formatting. In particular, all submissions must use either the LATEX template or the MS-Word template. Please follow exactly the instructions to ensure that your submission can ultimately be included in the proceedings. The proceedings of the DependSys 2019 Workshops will be published by Springer LNCS in DependSys 2019 Workshops Proceedings (indexed by EI Compendex)
