Most industrialized countries benefit from a high level of both safety and security. However, it becomes increasingly challenging to maintain or to increase this standard even further, given the great challenges the world is facing. Innovative technical solutions such as intelligent sensing systems and sensor networks are required. These hold the promise that hazards and threats can be detected early enough to avoid severe adverse impact, while allowing people to travel freely as well as maintaining free trade and circulation of goods. At the same time, smart factories and intelligent logistics based on cyber-physical systems and the internet of things (IoT), also referred to as Industry 4.0, pose new challenges with respect to operational safety. Advanced sensors and sensor networks are required e.g. for the safe operation of autonomous mobile systems. To provide valid solutions to all these challenges, a cross-disciplinary collaboration of researchers is required. The Future Security 2016 provides an exchange platform for scientists, experts, and actors from various branches, featuring extensive insight into current security research activities and hot topics in this field.
