Mobisec 2010 : The Second International ICST Conference on Security and Privacy in Mobile Information and Communication Systems
Conference Series : Security and Privacy in Mobile Information and Communication Systems
Call For Papers
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 converged, and next-generation, communication networks. 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. MobiSec strives to bring together the leading-edge of academia and industry in mobile systems security, as well as practitioners, standards developers and policymakers.
Technical papers describing original, previously unpublished research, not currently under review by another conference or journal, are solicited.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, as applied to mobile ICT:
Security architectures for next-generation, new-generation, and converged communication networks
Trusted mobile devices, hardware security
Threat analyses for mobile systems
Multi-hop authentication and trust
Non-repudiation of communication
Context-aware and data-centric security
Protection and safety of distributed mobile data
Mobile application security
Security for voice and multimedia communication Machine-to-machine communication security
Trust in autonomic and opportunistic communication
Location based applications security and privacy
Security for the networked home environment
Security and privacy for mobile communities
Mobile emergency communication, public safety
Lawful interception and mandatory data retention
Security aspects in IP-based mobility
Security of mobile agents and code
