The 4th International Workshop on Security and Privacy in Spontaneous Interaction and Mobile Device Use (IWSSI/SPMU’2012) provides a forum to discuss these challenges and to put forward an agenda for future research. The workshop is intended to foster cooperation between research groups and to establish a highly connected research community. Authors of selected workshop submissions will be invited to submit an extended version to a special issue in a renowned international journal.
Topics of interest for this workshop include, but are not limited to, the following items as they appear in the context of spontaneous interaction and/or mobile device use:
* Authentication protocols and methods for device pairing or user authentication
* Sensor-, context-, and location-based authentication methods
* Authorization, access control, and trust management
* Logging and auditing of spontaneous interactions with mobile devices
* Network and system models * Security and privacy of mobile phone users
* Security and privacy issues in mobile phone networks
* Privacy and anonymous/pseudonymous interactions * User interfaces and models for user interaction on mobile devices
* Making use of spontaneous interaction in applications
* Public perception of security and privacy issues of mobile phones
* Legal and social issues of security and privacy for mobile phones
* Options for lawful, auditable, and restricted tracking and surveillance using mobile phones in law enforcement
There will be two separate categories for submission:
Full papers: We solicit novel contributions of up to 6 pages (ACM Format) on any of the topics of interest or related areas. These papers must not significantly overlap with other papers previously published or submitted for publication elsewhere. Accepted papers will be published online on the IWSII/SPMU 2012 website. Authors of selected submissions will also be invited to submit an extended version to a special issue in a renowned international journal.
Position papers: Position papers should be no longer than 2 pages (ACM Format) and could report work in progress or simply present early ideas and concepts. Authors of already published papers could also prepare a short summary of their earlier work for discussion within the context of the workshop.
We encourage authors to submit to both categories if deemed appropriate. An international program committee will select around 12-15 contributions. Authors of accepted full and position papers will be invited to give short presentations at the beginning of the workshop with brief discussion phases, followed by an open panel and more specific discussion groups to discuss common ground and open challenges. The open panel is also a forum for informally presenting demonstrators, which will be actively encouraged. Video and other supplementary material will be published on the workshop web page to provide further incentive for showing prototypes.
Contributions must be sent by email to<email@example.com> no later than March 02, 2012, and should be in PDF format. If you have any questions, we encourage you to contact the organizers at the above email address.
