Innovations in Mobile Privacy & Security (IMPS) 2018 is a workshop to be held on Friday 27th April 2018 in conjunction with EuroS&P 2018 in London, UK.

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 2018 is the third meeting of the workshop, following

Areas of interest include but are not restricted to:

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.

Dates and submission

Key dates are as follows:

We seek submissions of two kinds:

IMPS proceedings will be published by IEEE in a Euro S&P volume. Papers should be prepared in two-column IEEE style.
