CFP: Data Protection in Mobile and Pervasive Computing

Call for Paper

The International Workshop on Data Protection in Mobile and Pervasive
Computing (DAPRO) in conjunction with SecureComm 2014 (Beijing, China,
September 23, 2014)


The First International Workshop on Data Protection in Mobile and
Pervasive Computing (DAPRO) will focus on sensitive data on the mobile
and pervasive devices such as phone, laptop, sensor, raspberry pi,
pad, RFID, NFC device, VANET node and so on. These devices face more
physical threats than other traditional computing devices, and are
configured with peripheral interfaces different from traditional
computing devices.  This workshop will provide a forum for
researchers, engineers and students to present and discuss innovative
ideas, research results, applications and experience related to the
threats and protections, especially for the sensitive data on these


Research contributions are solicited in all areas related to data
protection in mobile and pervasive computing, including but not
limited to:

 - Anonymity and tracking
 - Anti-theft
 - Backup and remote retrieve
 - Lightweight cryptographic scheme and white-box cryptography
 - Lightweight intrusion detection and prevention
 - Physical threat
 - Privacy and location
 - Remote trust establishment and trusted computing
 - Sensitive data protection
 - Usable security
 - Vehicular ad-hoc network security
