Call for Papers: Innovations in Mobile Privacy & Security (IMPS) 2017

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 csv32ecosystems, and research into
novel security or privacy mechanisms, tools, and analysis.

IMPS 2017 is a one-day workshop to be held in conjunction with EuroS&P
2017 in Paris, France (see

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 of 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.
