Conference Location
Call For Papers
 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 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. Examples of short papers include work that is not fully fleshed out, but present novel and stimulating ideas. Short papers should be submitted as such, and no conversion between full and short papers will occur. All papers must be thoroughly anonymized for double-blind reviewing. Detailed submission instructions will appear on the conference website.

New at WiSec 2017

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:".

Posters and Demos

WiSec also solicits submission of posters and demos.
