CFPs for fun(?) and profit(!)

2011 ACM CCS Workshop on Security and Privacy in Smartphones and Mobile
Devices (SPSM)

in conjunction with the 18th ACM Conference on Computer and
Communications Security (CCS), October 17-21 2011, Chicago, IL

Mobile devices such as smartphones and Internet tablets have achieved
computing and networking capabilities comparable to traditional personal
computers. Their successful consumerization has also become source of
pain for adopting users and organizations. For example, the wide-spread
presence of information-stealing applications raises substantial
security and privacy concerns. The operating systems supporting these
new devices have both advantages and disadvantages with respect to
offered security. On one hand, they use application sandboxing to
contain exploits and limit privileges given to malware. On the other
hand, they collect and organize many forms of security and privacy
sensitive information simply as a matter of operation, and make that
information easily accessible to downloaded third-party applications.

Recognizing smartphone security and privacy as the emerging area, this
workshop intends to provide a venue for interested researchers and
practitioners to get together and exchange ideas, thus to deepen our
understanding to various security and privacy issues on smartphones,
specifically the platforms such as iOS and Android. Topics of interests
include (but are not limited to) the following subject categories:

* Threat models and attack scenarios
* Rogue mobile application detection and recovery
* Security solutions for applications, marketplaces and users
* Smartphone-centric regulatory compliance issues and mechanisms
* Mobile application sandboxing and virtualization
* Secure identity management
* Hardware-engineered security solutions
* Unlocking, jailbreaking and threat from rootkits
* Leveraging Internet connectivity for Cloudsourcing security
* Security enforcement via data service provider
* Mutual threats between smartphones and social networks

We also would like to especially encourage novel paradigms and
controversial ideas that are not on the above list. The workshop is to
act as a venue for creative debate and interaction in security- and
privacy-sensitive areas of computing and communication impacted by

Important Dates

Manuscript submission: July 2, 2011
Acceptance notification: August 6, 2011
Final Manuscript due: August 25, 2011
Workshop Date: October 17, 2011


Authors are invited to submit either Full Research Papers (of up to 12
pages) or Position Papers (of up to 6 pages). Full Research Papers that
present relatively complete and mature research results on security and
privacy in smartphones and mobile devices are solicited. Position Papers
that define new problems in security and privacy related to smartphones
and mobile devices or provide inspiring visions are also solicited. Full
Research Papers and Position Papers will be reviewed separately.

Submissions must be in double-column ACM format with a font no smaller
than 10 point. Only PDF files will be accepted. Submissions need to be
numbered and should not substantially overlap with papers that have been
published or that are simultaneously submitted to a journal or a
conference with proceedings. All authors and their affiliations must be
listed. Each accepted paper must be presented by one registered author.
Submissions not meeting these guidelines risk rejection without
consideration of their merits. Accepted papers will be published by the
ACM Press and/or the ACM Digital Library.
