The organizers of WiSec 2020 are pleased to announce the organization of WiSec 2020, and are soliciting high-quality papers for the conference. The ACM Conference on Security and Privacy in Wireless and Mobile Networks (WiSec) is the leading ACM and SIGSAC conference. In 2020, WiSec will be held for the thirteenth time, and will be hosted by the Institute of Networks and Security at Johannes Kepler University Linz. (https://wisec2020.ins.jku.at/)
ACM is the world’s largest educational and scientific computing society. 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, mobile software platforms, Internet of Things, cyber-physical systems, usable security and privacy, biometrics, and cryptography. ACM WiSec is a very competitive, high quality conference, and is very-well attended by industry, government, and academia to share information, network, explore ideas, and learn about emerging trends and today’s hottest and most provocative cybersecurity topics. So, this event is a great opportunity for like-minded colleagues, students to attend and learn from the pioneers in the security and privacy field and connect with program managers.
The conference welcomes both theoretical as well as systems contributions. Topics of interest include, but are not limited to: ** Cryptographic primitives for wireless and mobile security ** Data-driven security attacks and counter measures ** Economics of mobile security and privacy ** Jamming attacks and defenses ** Key management (agreement or distribution) for wireless or mobile systems ** Mobile malware and platform security ** NFC and smart payment applications ** Next generation cellular network fraud and security ** Physical tracking security and privacy ** Resilience and dependability for mobile and wireless networks ** Security and privacy for cognitive radio and dynamic spectrum access systems ** Security and privacy for mobile applications (e.g., mobile sensing systems) ** Security and privacy for smart devices (e.g., smartphones) ** Secure localization and location privacy ** Security protocols for wireless networking ** Theoretical and formal approaches for wireless and mobile security ** Usable mobile security and privacy ** Vehicular networks security (e.g., drones, automotive, avionics, autonomous driving) ** Wireless and mobile privacy and anonymization techniques ** Wireless or mobile security for cyber-physical systems (e.g, healthcare, smart grid) and IoT systems ** Wireless network security for critical infrastructures
IMPORTANT DATES Paper submission deadline: March 13, 2020 (23:59 AoE) Author notification: April 24, 2020 Camera-ready deadine: May 15, 2020 (23:59 AoE) WiSec conference: July 8-10, 2020
