Dear all,

Apologies for cross-posting.

Call for Papers: Innovations in Mobile Privacy & Security (IMPS) 2017

IMPS aims to bring together researchers working on challenges in security and
privacy for mobile platforms, broadly considered. We are interested in
investigations into existing security platforms, their users, applications and
app store csv32ecosystems, and research into novel security or privacy mechanisms,
tools, and analysis.

IMPS 2017 is a one-day workshop to be held in conjunction with EuroS&P 2017 in
Paris, France (see

Areas of interest include but are not restricted to:

- Secure application development tools and practices
- Privacy enhancing techniques for devices and connected services
- Secure or trusted computing mechanisms
- Static and dynamic analysis for security
- Formal methods for mobile security
- Vulnerability detection and prevention
- Mobile operating system security features
- Security and privacy for IoT and other constrained devices
- Secure communication protocols for limited devices
- Usable security and privacy for small or mobile devices
- Studies of privacy or security "in the wild"
- User-awareness, understanding, mental models for mobile devices
- Mobile malware and potentially unwanted programs, analysis, and reverse engineering

The key aspect of work to be in scope is that a security or privacy issues are
studied for devices that are constrained and/or sensor rich. As a workshop, we
particularly encourage work describing novel or non-conventional, innovative
techniques and solutions.
