ACM WiSec 2018 will run from June 18 to June 20, 2018 in Stockholm, 

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 
- 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.

This year, papers are due on March 8, 2018 at 11:59 PM EST. Abstracts 
can be registered any time until the paper deadline. We invite 
full-length and short papers; additionally, we also invite opinion 
papers. We are continuing to encourage results that are reproducible - 
attaching the "reproducibility" label. The submission site is at 
https://wisec18.hotcrp.com. More details about each submission type and 
reproducibility are below:


Full paper submissions to ACM WiSec 2018 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.


ACM WiSec 2018 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:".


This year is the second one in a row for a new effort 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.


WiSec also solicits submission of posters and demos.


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.
