General Information

The Third International Workshop on Privacy, Security and Trust in Mobile and Wireless Systems (MobiPST 2013) will be held in conjunction with the 22nd International Conference on Computer Communications and Networks (ICCCN 2013), in Nassau, Bahamas. All papers presented in MobiPST 2013 will be published in the conference proceedings.

Outstanding papers will be invited to extend to full version for a special issue of Information - An International Interdisciplinary Journal (SCI(E)-indexed).

Scope and Topics

Mobile wireless devices have become pervasive and attracted significant interest from academia, industry, and standardization organizations. With the latest cloud computing technology, those mobile wireless devices will play a more and more important role in the computing and communication. When those devices become pervasive, security, privacy and trust become critical components for the acceptance of applications build based on those devices. Moreover, the several favorable characteristics of mobile and wireless devices, including portability, mobility, and sensitivity, further impose the challenge the security and privacy in those systems. Despite recent advances, many research issues remain in the design of secure, privacy-preserving, or trust architectures, protocols, algorithms, services, and applications on mobile and wireless systems. For example, when the mobile devices have more storage space, high bandwidth, and super sensing capability, more sensitive information will be stored in those devices. On the other hand, the operating systems on those devices are not as powerful and reliable as those on traditional computers. Both OS layer and higher layer protocols are expected to enhance the security and preserve privacy of those devices. With more mobile devices being used in social network and regular online activities, novel trust models are essential for the new applications. New cryptography algorithms, key distribution schemes and access control policies are also encouraged by considering the special characteristics of mobile and wireless devices. Other issues such as false detection, attack models, security analysis, and anonymity techniques are required to be revisited in mobile and wireless systems.

This workshop aims to bring together the technologists and researchers who share interest in the area of security, privacy and trust in mobile and wireless systems, as well as explore new venues of collaboration. The main purpose is to promote discussions of research and innovative implementation activities in the design of secure, privacy-preserving, or trust architectures, protocols, algorithms, services, and applications on mobile and wireless systems. It also aims at increasing the synergy between academic and industry professionals working in this area. We plan to seek papers that address theoretical, experimental research, and work in-progress for security, privacy and trust related issues in the context of mobile and wireless systems that include, but are not limited to, the following

 

 

Important Dates

 

Paper submission due:  March 29, 2013 (Firm)

Acceptance notification:  April 26, 2013

Camera-ready due:  May 10, 2013

Workshop: July 30, 2013

 

Submissions and Publications

 

Authors are invited to submit manuscripts reporting original unpublished research and recent developments in the topics related to the workshop. Submissions should include a title, abstract, keywords, author(s) and affiliation(s) with postal and e-mail address(es) of the corresponding author. Submitted manuscripts must be formatted in standard IEEE camera-ready format (double-column, 10-pt font) and must be submitted via EDAS ( http://edas.info/N14331 ) as PDF files (formatted for 8.5x11-inch paper). The manuscripts should be no longer than 5 pages. One additional page is permitted if the authors are willing to pay an over-length charge at the time of publication (manuscripts should not exceed 6 pages). Submitted papers cannot have been previously published in or be under consideration for publication in another journal or conference. The workshop Program Committee reserves the right to not review papers that either exceed the length specification or have been submitted or published elsewhere. Submissions must include a title, abstract, keywords, author(s) and affiliation(s) with postal and e-mail address(es). All authors of a paper must be registered in the RIGHT order via EDAS at the SUBMISSION TIME and cannot be changed after the submission due time at EDAS. The paper title and author name list/order cannot be changed during the final camera-ready submission. The final program will be generated from EDAS automatically. A paper abstract must be registered on EDAS by the deadline.

 

Submitted papers will be reviewed by the workshop Program Committee and judged on originality, technical correctness, relevance, and quality of presentation and the comments will be provided to the authors. Workshop papers will be in the same proceedings of the main conference papers. An accepted paper must be presented at the ICCCN 2013 venue by one of the authors registered at the full registration rate. If any accepted paper is not registered, the paper will be removed from the workshop program and the proceedings. Each workshop registration covers up to two workshop papers by an author. The Proceedings of the ICCCN 2013 has already been accepted in the IEEE Conference Publication Program. Each accepted paper must be presented at the conference or workshops by one of the authors, or it will be excluded from IEEE Xplore.

 

Outstanding papers will be invited to extend to full version for a prestigious journal (SCI(E)-indexed), Information - An International Interdisciplinary Journal and targeting publication in early 2014.
