Dear colleague,
Apologies for multiple postings.


ACM Conference on Security and Privacy in Wireless and Mobile Networks
(ACM WiSec 2017)

July 18 to July 20, 2017 in Boston, USA



*Important deadlines:*

- Abstract submission: March 13, 2017
- Paper submission: March 20, 2017
- Notification to authors: April 24, 2017
- Poster and demo proposal submission: May 17, 2017
- Notification to poster presenters: May 19, 2017

*Conference Scope:*

ACM WiSec is the leading ACM and SIGSAC conference dedicated to all
aspects of security and privacy in wireless and mobile networks and
their applications. In addition to the traditional ACM WiSec topics of
physical, link, and network layer security, we welcome papers focusing
on the security and privacy of mobile software platforms, usable
security and privacy, biometrics, cryptography, and the increasingly
diverse range of mobile or wireless applications such as Internet of
Things, and Cyber-Physical Systems. The conference welcomes both
theoretical as well as systems contributions.

/Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:/

- Security & privacy for smart devices (e.g., smartphones)
- Wireless and mobile privacy and anonymity
- Secure localization and location privacy
- Cellular network fraud and security
- Jamming attacks and defenses
- Key management (agreement or distribution) for wireless or mobile systems
- Information-theoretic security schemes for wireless systems
- Theoretical and formal approaches for wireless and mobile security
- Cryptographic primitives for wireless and mobile security
- NFC and smart payment applications
- Security and privacy for mobile sensing systems
- Wireless or mobile security for emerging applications (e.g, privacy in
health, automotive, avionics, smart grid, or IoT applications)
- Physical tracking security and privacy
- Usable mobile security and privacy
- Economics of mobile security and privacy
- Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) security
- Mobile malware and platform security
- Security for cognitive radio and dynamic spectrum access systems
- Security protocols for wireless networking

The proceedings of ACM WiSec, sponsored by SIGSAC, will be published by
the ACM.

*Full and short papers*

Full paper submissions to ACM WiSec 2017 can be up to 10 pages in the
ACM conference style excluding the bibliography and well marked
appendices, and up to 12 pages in total. ACM WiSec also encourages the
submission of short papers with a length of up to 6 pages, which
describe mature work of a more succinct nature. All papers must be
thoroughly anonymized for double-blind reviewing. Detailed submission
instructions will appear on the conference website.

*New at WiSec 2017*

OPINION PAPERS: ACM WiSec 2017 invites papers (ACM conference style, up
to 3 pages excluding references) that present personal perspectives on
all aspects of security and privacy in wireless and mobile networks.
Opinion papers could also criticize previous research or research
directions, as well as highlight possible promising research directions.
The opinions expressed in these papers are expected to be anyway
corroborated by theoretical foundations, experiments, or experiences.
Like the regular papers, the opinion papers will be reviewed by the
WiSec Technical Program Committee. The selected opinion papers will be a
part of the WiSec technical program and will be published in the
conference proceedings. Opinion papers should be submitted using the
same submission procedure adopted for the full papers. The title of
these papers must have the prefix "Opinion:".


This year WiSec is pioneering a process to support greater
reproducibility in mobile and wireless security experimental research.
The goal of this process is to increase the impact of mobile and
wireless research, enable dissemination of research results, sharing of
code and experiments set-ups, and to enable the research community to
build on prior experimental results. Towards this goal, Wisec is
introducing a reproducibility label to recognize papers whose results
were reproduced by an independent group of researchers. Authors of
accepted papers, can participate in this voluntary process by submitting
their experiments following the reproducibility evaluation instructions.
Authors are encouraged to plan ahead when running their experiments to
minimize the overhead of applying for this label.

*Posters and Demos*

WiSec also solicits submission of posters and demos.

*Double submissions*

It is a policy of the ACM to disallow double submissions, where the same
(or substantially similar) paper is concurrently submitted to multiple
conferences/journals. Any double submissions detected will be
immediately rejected from all conferences/journals involved.
