Call for Papers
First Workshop on Security and Privacy Aspects of Mobile Environments (SPME)
colocated with ACM MobiCom 2014
Maui, Hawai, USA, September 11

Increased adoption of mobile communications technologies (e.g., smartphones and
Internet tablets), along with the growing popularity of mobile applications and
online social network services (e.g., mobile Facebook, Foursquare, mobile
YouTube), dramatically changed the computing and networking landscapes. Such
mobile environments, while creating and promoting several new opportunities for
users, businesses and enterprises by complementing and often supplanting
traditional Internet communication, opened up new challenges with new forms of
security risks and privacy threats. Mobile devices security and privacy research
has been very active and productive since the inception of smartphones and app
markets. Both regulatory and technology efforts are also underway to address
some of the privacy and security requirements of mobile systems and services.

The workshop will discuss issues in mobile devices and applications, mobile
location-based services, ad-hoc and infrastructure-based mobile networks, with
particular focus on theoretical and practical aspects of design, usability and
performance evaluation of security and privacy.

This workshop will solicit research papers, work-in-progress papers, industry
and regulatory position reports from academia, industry, and government
agencies. The proposed workshop seeks to promote dynamic interdisciplinary
discussions and collaboration on the various aspects of security and privacy of
mobile devices, applications and mobile networking operations.

Topics of interest include but are not limited to:

- Mobile networks security
- Mobile handsets devices security
- Security and privacy of mobile applications
- Hardware enabled security
- Usability of security and privacy
- New economic models of privacy-preserving mobile systems/applications
- Mobile identity management systems
- Mobile payment systems
- Privacy and security threats identification
- Censorship resistance in mobile environments
- Privacy preserving analytics in mobile environments
- Contextual (context-based) security and privacy
- Security and privacy in next generation mobile networks
- Security and privacy in wearable technologies

We also encourage submissions of controversial ideas, interdisciplinary
perspectives and other novel contributions with a potential to trigger
constructive discussions and interactions.
