ACM WiSec is the leading ACM and SIGSAC conference dedicated to all aspects
of security and privacy in wireless and mobile 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 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.
