Title: 10th Annual Conference on Security and Privacy in Wireless and Mobile Networks (WiSEC)

Host: Northeastern University, College of Computer and Information Science

Location: Northeastern University, 805 Columbus Avenue, Interdisciplinary Science and Engineering Complex (ISEC), 1st Floor, Auditorium, Boston, Massachusetts 02120


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 and 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

This year WiSEC introduces opinion papers and WiSec reproducibility label.

The proceedings of ACM WiSec, sponsored by SIGSAC, will be published by the ACM.

Keynote Speaker(s)

  • Silvio Micali, Turning Award Recipient, Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT)
  • Srini Devadas, Webser Professor of EECS, Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT)
