Innovations in Mobile Privacy & Security (IMPS) 2017 is a one-day workshop to be held on 29th April in conjunction with EuroS&P 2017 in Paris, France.
IMPS aims to bring together researchers working on challenges in security and privacy for mobile platforms, broadly considered. We are interested in investigations into existing security platforms, their users, applications and app store ecosystems, and research into novel security or privacy mechanisms, tools and analysis techniques. Besides established mobile platforms such as iOS and Android, the workshop will consider new and emerging platforms including those for small and embedded devices for example, in the Internet-of-Things setting.
IMPS 2017 is the second meeting of the workshop, following IMPS 2016 held in London as part of ESSoS 16.
Areas of interest include but are not restricted to:
Secure application development tools and practices
Privacy enhancing techniques for devices and connected services
Secure or trusted computing mechanisms
Static and dynamic analysis for security
Formal methods for mobile security
Vulnerability detection and prevention
Mobile operating system security features
Security and privacy for IoT and other constrained devices
Secure communication protocols for limited devices
Usable security and privacy for small or mobile devices
Studies of privacy or security "in the wild"
User-awareness, understanding, mental models for mobile devices
Mobile malware and potentially unwanted programs, analysis and reverse engineering
The key aspect for work to be in scope is that a security or privacy issues are studied for devices that are constrained and/or sensor rich. As a workshop, we particularly encourage work describing novel or non-conventional, innovative techniques and solutions.
