MobiSec's focus is the convergence of information and communication technology in mobile scenarios. This convergence is realised in intelligent mobile devices, accompanied by the advent of next-generation communication networks. Privacy and security aspects need to be covered at all layers of mobile networks, from mobile devices, to privacy-respecting credentials and mobile identity management, up to machine-to-machine communications.

In particular, mobile devices such as Smartphones and Internet Tablets have been very successful in commercialization. However, their security mechanisms are not always able to deal with the growing trend of information-stealing attacks. As mobile communication and information processing becomes a commodity, economy and society require protection of this precious resource. Mobility and trust in networking go hand in hand for future generations of users, who need privacy and security at all layers of technology.
In addition, the introduction of new data collection practices and data-flows (e.g. sensing data) from the mobile device makes it more difficult to understand the new security and privacy threats introduced.

MobiSec strives to bring together the leading-edge of academia and industry in mobile systems security, as well as practitioners, standards developers and policymakers.
Contributions may range from architecture designs and implementations to cryptographic solutions for mobile and resource-constrained devices.


Paper submission deadline (extended) : April 2, 2012
Notification of acceptance: May 20, 2012
Camera-Ready submission deadline: June 4, 2012


Technical papers describing original, previously unpublished research, not currently under review by another conference or journal, are solicited. MobiSec solicits original, high-quality research contributions in the form of full papers. The focus is on the security of information and communication
systems including mobile networks, devices and applications. Papers from other areas, e.g., formal methods, cryptography, database security, operating system security, will be considered if a clear connection to one of the topics below is demonstrated.
Topics of interest include, but are not limited to, the following focus areas:

Smartphone Security and Privacy:
Advanced Security Mechanisms
Virtualisation Solutions
Rogue Mobile Application Detection and Protection
Forensic Analysis

Machine-to-Machine Secure Communication:
Device Identities and Authentication
Remote Integrity Validation and Remediation
Remote Management and Provisioning
Machine-to-Machine Application Layer Security
Secure Elements and Trusted Environments

Privacy and Security in Emerging Mobile Applications and Services:
Privacy-respecting Authentication
Mobile Identity Management
Mobile Wallets, Mobile Payments
Location-based Services and Mobile Sensing

Proposals for panels/demos/workshops/tutorials are solicited.
Potential organisers are welcome to submit a proposal to one of the general chairs or the Workshops or Panels chair.


Accepted papers will be published in Springer's LNICST series and will appear in the SpringerLink, one of the largest digital libraries online that covers a variety of scientific disciplines, as well as in the ICST's own EU Digital Library (EUDL). LNICST volumes are submitted for inclusion to leading indexing services, including DBLP, Google Scholar, ACM Digital Library, ISI Proceedings, EI Engineering Index, CrossRef, Scopus. See for more information about indexing.


Authors are invited to submit papers of up to 12 pages for full papers, 6 pages for short papers.
