Dear colleagues,

Apologies for multiple postings.

12th ACM Conference on Security and Privacy in Wireless and Mobile

May 15 2019, Miami beach, Florida USA.



Important Dates

Abstract submission: January 18th (open until paper submission deadline)
Paper submission: January 25th
Author notification: March 1st
Camera ready: April 8th
WiSec conference: May 15th-17th

Conference Scope

ACM WiSec is the leading ACM and SIGSAC conference dedicated to all
aspects of security and privacy in wireless and mobile networks and
their applications. In addition to the traditional ACM WiSec topics of
physical, link, and network layer security, we welcome papers focusing
on the increasingly diverse range of mobile or wireless applications
such as Internet of Things, and Cyber-Physical Systems, as well as the
security and privacy of mobile software platforms, usable security and
privacy, biometrics, and cryptography. The conference welcomes both
theoretical as well as systems contributions.

Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:
* Security protocols for wireless networking
* Security & privacy for smart devices (e.g., smartphones)
* Security of mobile applications for smartphones and wearables
* Wireless and mobile privacy and anonymity
* Secure localization and location privacy
* Cellular network fraud and security
* Jamming attacks and defenses
* Key management (agreement or distribution) for wireless or mobile
* Theoretical and formal approaches for wireless and mobile security
* Physical layer and Information-theoretic security schemes for
wireless systems
* Cryptographic primitives for wireless and mobile security
* NFC and smart payment applications
* Security and privacy for mobile sensing systems
* Wireless or mobile security for Cyber-Physical Systems (e.g,
healthcare, smart grid, or IoT applications)
* Vehicular networks security (e.g., drones, automotive, avionics,
autonomous driving)
* Physical tracking security and privacy
* Usable mobile security and privacy
* Economics of mobile security and privacy
* Mobile malware and platform security
* Security for cognitive radio and dynamic spectrum access systems
The proceedings of ACM WiSec, sponsored by SIGSAC, will be published
by the ACM.

Full and short papers

Full paper submissions to ACM WiSec 2019 can be up to 10 pages in the
ACM conference style excluding the bibliography and well marked
appendices, and up to 12 pages in total. ACM WiSec also encourages the
submission of short papers with a length of up to 6 pages, which
describe mature work of a more succinct nature. All papers must be
thoroughly anonymized for double-blind reviewing. Detailed submission
instructions will appear on the conference website.

Opinion papers

ACM WiSec 2019 invites papers (ACM conference style, up to 3 pages
excluding references) that present personal perspectives on all
aspects of security and privacy in wireless and mobile networks.
Opinion papers could also criticize previous research or research
directions, as well as highlight possible promising research
directions. The opinions expressed in these papers are expected to be
anyway corroborated by theoretical foundations, experiments, or
experiences. Like the regular papers, the opinion papers will be
reviewed by the WiSec Technical Program Committee. The selected
opinion papers will be a part of the WiSec technical program and will
be published in the conference proceedings. Opinion papers should be
submitted using the same submission procedure adopted for the full
papers. The title of these papers must have the prefix "Opinion:".

Replicability label

The goal of the replicability label is to support replicability in
mobile and wireless security experimental research process and to
increase the impact of mobile and wireless research, enable
dissemination of research results, sharing of code and experiments
setups, and to enable the research community to build on prior
experimental results. WiSec will follow the ACM policy on artifact
review and badging. Towards this goal, the WiSec replicability label
recognizes papers whose results were replicated by an independent
group of researchers. Authors of accepted papers can participate in
this voluntary process by submitting their experiments according to
the replicability evaluation instructions. Authors are encouraged to
plan ahead when running their experiments to minimize the overhead of
applying for this label.

Posters and Demos

WiSec also solicits submission of posters and demos. The instructions
to submit posters/demos will be made available later on WiSec 2019

Double submissions

It is a policy of the ACM to disallow double submissions, where the
same (or substantially similar) paper is concurrently submitted to
multiple conferences/journals. Any double submissions detected will be
immediately rejected from all conferences/journals involved.
