2nd International Workshop on Security and Privacy in Spontaneous
Interaction and Mobile Device Use (IWSSI/SPMU'09) - Call for Papers
Nara, Japan
co-located with Pervasive 2009

*Important Dates*

Submission Deadline: February 10, 2009
Notification to Authors: March 1, 2009
Camera-Ready Papers: April 1, 2009
Workshop: May 11, 2009


Mobile devices in general, and mobile phones in particular, present
unique challenges not only in terms of user interface, battery life,
and form factor, but also in terms of ensuring their users' privacy
and security. Privacy and security are often in conflict with another
and have been the topic of many research projects. Emerging mobile
payment and ticketing solutions require the secure transmission and
storage of financial information, while electronic health records or
access certificates/tokens might imply the use of highly sensitive
personal information on such devices. Securing the potentially massive
amount of interactions using mobile devices is difficult, because
typically there will be no a priori shared information such as
passwords, addresses, or PIN codes between the phone, its user, and
the service they want to use. Additionally, mobile devices often lack
powerful user interfaces to support classical authentication methods.

The 2nd International Workshop on Security and Privacy in Spontaneous
Interaction and Mobile Device Use (IWSSI/SPMU'09) provides a forum to
discuss these challenges and to put forward an agenda for future
research. The workshop is intended to foster cooperation between
research groups and to establish a highly connected research community.
Selected workshop submissions will be collected as a special issue
in a renowned international journal, together with a number of invited
contributions from renowned researchers in the field.

Topics of interest for this workshop include, but are not limited to,
the following items as they appear in the context of spontaneous
interaction and/or mobile device use:

    * Authentication protocols and methods for device pairing or
      user authentication
    * Sensor-, context-, and location-based authentication methods
    * Authorization, access control, and trust management
    * Logging and auditing of spontaneous interactions with mobile devices
    * Network and system models
    * Security and privacy of mobile phone users
    * Security and privacy issues in mobile phone networks
    * Privacy and anonymous/pseudonymous interactions
    * User interfaces and models for user interaction on mobile devices
    * Making use of spontaneous interaction in applications
    * Public perception of security and privacy issues of mobile phones
    * Legal and social issues of security and privacy for mobile phones
    * Options for lawful, auditable, and restricted tracking and
      surveillance using mobile phones in law enforcement


There will be two separate categories for submission:

* Full papers: We solicit novel contributions of up to 6 pages (see the
  workshop website for format details) on any of the topics of interest
  or related areas. These papers must not significantly overlap with
  other papers previously published or submitted for publication
  elsewhere.  Accepted papers will be published in the Pervasive 2009
  workshops proceedings as well as online on the IWSII/SPMU09 website.
  Authors of selected submissions will also be invited to submit an
  extended version to a special issue in a renowned international

* Position papers: Position papers should be no longer than 2 pages
  and may present already published work in the context of this
  workshop, work in progress, as well as ideas and concepts for future

We encourage authors to submit to both categories if deemed appropriate.

An international program committee will select around 12-15
contributions. Authors of accepted full and position papers will be
invited to give short presentations at the beginning of the workshop
with brief discussion phases, followed by an open panel and more
specific discussion groups to discuss common ground and open
challenges. The open panel is also a forum for informally presenting
demonstrators, which will be actively encouraged. Video and other
supplementary material will be published on the workshop web page to
provide further incentive for showing prototypes.

Contributions must be sent by email to <[log in to unmask]> no later
than February 10, 2009, and should be in PDF format. If you have any
questions, we encourage you to contact the organizers at the above
email address.
