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 security and privacy of mobile software platforms, usable
security and privacy, biometrics, cryptography, and the increasingly
diverse range of mobile or wireless applications such as Internet of
Things, and Cyber-Physical Systems. The conference welcomes both
theoretical as well as systems contributions.

Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:

* Security & privacy for smart devices (e.g., smartphones)
* 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 systems
* Information-theoretic security schemes for wireless systems
* Theoretical and formal approaches for wireless and mobile security
* Cryptographic primitives for wireless and mobile security
* NFC and smart payment applications
* Security and privacy for mobile sensing systems
* Wireless or mobile security for emerging applications (e.g, privacy in
  health, automotive, avionics, smart grid, or IoT applications)
* Physical tracking security and privacy
* Usable mobile security and privacy
* Economics of mobile security and privacy
* Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) security
* Mobile malware and platform security
* Security for cognitive radio and dynamic spectrum access systems
* Security protocols for wireless networking

The proceedings of ACM WiSec, sponsored by SIGSAC, will be published by
the ACM.

FULL AND SHORT PAPERS: Full paper submissions to ACM WiSec 2016 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.

POSTERS AND DEMOS: WiSec also solicits submission of posters and demos.

OPINION PAPERS: ACM WiSec 2017 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:".

WiSec REPRODUCIBILITY LABEL: This year WiSec is pioneering a process to
support greater reproducibility in mobile and wireless security
experimental research. The goal of this process is to increase the
impact of mobile and wireless research, enable dissemination of research
results, sharing of code and experiments set-ups, and to enable the
research community to build on prior experimental results. Towards this
goal, Wisec is introducing a reproducibility label to recognize papers
whose results were reproduced by an independent group of researchers.
Authors of accepted papers, can participate in this voluntary process by
submitting their experiments following the reproducibility evaluation
instructions. Authors are encouraged to plan ahead when running their
experiments to minimize the overhead of applying for this label.
