SIXTH WORKSHOP IN INFORMATION SECURITY THEORY AND PRACTICE (WISTP 2012)
Security and Trust in Computing Systems and Ambient Intelligence Ecosystem
June 19-22, 2012, London, UK - http://www.wistp.org/
WISTP 2012 BACKGROUND AND GOALS
Future ICT technologies, like the concepts of Ambient Intelligence and
Internet of Things provide a vision of the Information Society where
the emphasis is on surrounding people by intelligent interactive
interfaces and objects and on environments that are capable of
recognising and reacting to the presence of different individuals
in a seamless, unobtrusive and invisible manner.
The success of future ICT technologies, some of which are set as
priorities by the European Union, will depend on how secure they
will be made, how privacy and individuals’ rights will be protected
and how individuals will come to trust the intelligent world that
will surround them and through which they will move.
WISTP 2012 aims to address the security and privacy issues that are
increasingly exposed by mobile and wireless communications and related
services, along with evaluating their impact on business,
individuals, and the society.
The workshop seeks submissions from academia and industry presenting
novel research on all theoretical and practical aspects of security
and privacy of mobile and smart devices, as well as experimental studies
of fielded systems based on wireless communication, the application
of security technology, the implementation of systems, and lessons learned.
We encourage submissions from other communities such as law,
business and policy that present these communities’ perspectives on
technological issues. Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:
Paper Submission due: January 31, 2011 firm deadline
Notification to authors: February 24, 2012
Author registration: March 18, 2012
Camera-ready due: March 18, 2012
Submissions must not substantially overlap with papers that have been
published or that are simultaneously submitted to a journal or
conference/workshop with proceedings. Each submission should be
at most 16 pages in total in the Springer’s LNCS format
All submissions should be anonymous (i.e., no author names/affiliations
and obvious citations). Submissions are to be made to the submission
web site (http://www.wistp.org/submission-details/).
Only PDF files will be accepted. Submissions not meeting these guidelines
risk rejection without consideration of their merits. Accepted papers
will be published by Springer in the Lecture Notes in Computer Science
series (http://www.springeronline.com/lncs), and the proceedings will be
available at the workshop. The camera-ready version of the accepted papers
must follow Springer guidelines (a Latex source file will be required).
If a submitted paper is mainly the work of a student author, this paper
is eligible for the best student paper award. To participate in this
selection process, please add the word “STUDENT” in the affiliation
field in the submission form.
Authors of accepted papers must guarantee that their papers will be
presented at the workshop. At least one author of each accepted paper
is required to register with the workshop and present the paper.
For authors presenting multiple papers, one normal registration
is valid for up to two papers.
