Call For Papers

PRISMS 2013 - International Conference on Privacy and Security in Mobile Systems

Atlantic City, NJ, USA
24 - 27 June 2013

* Technical co-Sponsorship by IEEE.
* Proceedings will be published in IEEE Xplore.
* PRISMS is part of the Global Wireless Summit 2013 (GWS-2013).

PRISMS is the successor of MobiSec (International Conference on Security and Privacy in Mobile Information and Communication Systems). The conference under a new name (PRISMS) is organized this year with the co-sponsorship of IEEE. Its 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.

PRISMS 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.


Topics of interest include, but are not limited to, the following focus areas:

User Device Security and Privacy:

* Advanced Security & Privacy Mechanisms
* Trusted Execution Environments (TEE) and their applications
* Rogue Mobile Application Detection and Protection
* Secure Elements and Tokens
* Forensic Analysis

Machine-to-Machine Security:

* Device Identities and Authentication
* M2M Security Architectures and Standardization
* Remote Security Management, Verification, and Remediation of M2M Devices
* Societal Impact of M2M Communication Security Issues

Privacy and Security in Emerging Mobile Applications and Services:

* Privacy-respecting Authentication
* Mobile Identity Management
* Privacy in the Internet of Things
* 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.
