** Apologies if you receive multiple copies of this message **

This is a gentle reminder that the deadline of IMPS workshop (co-located with IEEE Euro S&P 2018) is fast approaching!

We highlight that we also welcome short papers, reporting on early ideas or work in progress, to foster discussion on mobile security and privacy.

Innovations in Mobile Privacy and Security (IMPS)

Innovations in Mobile Privacy & Security (IMPS) 2018 is a workshop to be held on Friday 27th April 2018 in conjunction with EuroS&P 2018 in London, UK.

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 ecosystems, and research into novel security or privacy mechanisms, tools and analysis techniques. Besides established mobile platforms such as iOS and Android, the workshop will consider new and emerging platforms including those for small and embedded devices for example, in the Internet-of-Things setting.

IMPS 2018 is the third meeting of the workshop, following IMPS 2016 held in London as part of ESSoS 2016 and IMPS 2017 held in Paris as part of EuroS&P 2017.

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 for 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.

Dates and submission

Key dates are as follows:

-   Paper submission: Midday UTC on Friday 2nd February 2018
-   Notification to authors: Tuesday 20th February 2018
-   Camera-ready version: Monday 19th March 2018
-   Workshop: Friday 27th April 2018

We seek submissions of two kinds:

-   Short papers, reporting on early ideas or work in progress (4 pages)

IMPS proceedings will be published by IEEE in a Euro S&P volume. Papers should be prepared in two-column IEEE style. Submission is via EasyChair:
