Dear colleague,

Apologies for multiple postings.

ACM Conference on Security and Privacy in Wireless and Mobile Networks (ACM
WiSec 2017)

July 18 to July 20, 2017 in Boston, USA



*Important deadlines:*

- Abstract submission: March 13, 2017
- Paper submission: March 20, 2017
- Notification to authors: April 24, 2017
- Poster and demo proposal submission: May 17, 2017
- Notification to poster presenters: May 19, 2017
- Camera-ready version: May 29, 2017

All deadlines are 11:59:59 EDT.

*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

*Full and short papers*

Full paper submissions to ACM WiSec 2017 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

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


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.

*Posters and Demos*

WiSec also solicits submission of posters and demos.

*Double submissions*

It is a policy of the ACM to disallow double submissions, where the same
(or substantially similar) paper is concurrently submitted to multiple
conferences/journals. Any double submissions detected will be immediately
rejected from all conferences/journals involved.
