Call for Papers

Despite being small computing devices, smartphones offer a wide range of functionalities and services to their users, which are currently encountered to be more than one third of the world population. This range of features introduces new security and privacy threats, which expose users to serious damages. Even though research in mobile security has been active over the past 10 years, as long as the mobile technology is used, new challenges will always come up. The purpose of this workshop is to bring researchers, hardware and software developers, as well as practitioners and policy makers, to explore the latest advances in the security and privacy for mobile devices.

Submissions must not substantially duplicate work that any of the authors has published elsewhere or has submitted in parallel to any other venue with formally published proceedings. Information about submissions may be shared with program chairs of other conferences for that purpose.
