Mobile Security Technologies (MoST) 2016
co-located with 
The 34th IEEE Symposium on Security and Privacy (IEEE S&P 2016) 
an event of
The IEEE Computer Society's Security and Privacy Workshops (SPW 2016) 
The Fairmont Hotel
San Jose, CA, USA
Thursday May 26, 2016

Mobile Security Technologies (MoST) brings together researchers, 
practitioners, policy makers, and hardware and software developers of 
mobile systems to explore the latest understanding and advances in the 
security and privacy for mobile devices, applications, and systems. 

With the development of new mobile platforms, such as Android and iOS, 
mobile computing has shown exponential growth in popularity in recent 
years. To benefit from the availability of constantly-growing consumer 
base, new services and applications are being built from the composition 
of existing ones at breakneck speed. This rapid growth has also been 
coupled with new security and privacy concerns and challenges. For 
instance, more and more sensitive content is being collected and shared by 
third-party applications that, if misused, can have serious security and 
privacy repercussions. Consequently, there is a growing need to study and 
address these new challenges.

Topics of Interest Include:
We are seeking both short position papers (2-4 pages) and longer papers (a 
maximum of 10 pages). The topics of interest include, but are not limited 
Identity and access control for mobile platforms
Mobile app security
Mobile cloud security
Mobile hardware security
Mobile middleware and OS security
Mobile web and advertisement security
Protecting security-critical applications of mobile platforms
Secure application development tools and practices
Security study of mobile ecosystems
Unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs) security
Wearable and IoT security
