an excellent venue for that (MoST is co-located with Oakland)

=== MoST 2016 Call for Papers ===

Mobile Security Technologies (MoST) 2016

co-located with The 34th IEEE Symposium on Security and Privacy (IEEE
S&P 2016) an event of The IEEE Computer Society's Security and Privacy
Workshops (SPW 2016) 

The Fairmont Hotel
San Jose, CA, USA
Thursday May 26, 2016

Mobile Security Technologies (MoST) brings together researchers,
practitioners, policy makers, and hardware and software developers of 
mobile systems to explore the latest understanding and advances in the 
security and privacy for mobile devices, applications, and systems. 

With the development of new mobile platforms, such as Android and iOS, 
mobile computing has shown exponential growth in popularity in recent 
years. To benefit from the availability of constantly-growing consumer 
base, new services and applications are being built from the
composition of existing ones at breakneck speed. This rapid growth has
also been coupled with new security and privacy concerns and
challenges. For instance, more and more sensitive content is being
collected and shared by third-party applications that, if misused, can
have serious security and privacy repercussions. Consequently, there is
a growing need to study and address these new challenges.

We are seeking both short position papers (2-4 pages) and longer papers
(a maximum of 10 pages). The topics of interest include, but are not
limited to:

- Identity and access control for mobile platforms
- Mobile app security
- Mobile cloud security
- Mobile hardware security
- Mobile middleware and OS security
- Mobile web and advertisement security
- Protecting security-critical applications of mobile platforms
- Secure application development tools and practices
- Security study of mobile ecosystems
- Unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs) security
- Wearable and IoT security

Paper Submission Instructions

Papers will be submitted through EasyChair. You may update your paper
at any time until the submission deadline. All accepted papers will be 
published online as part of the IEEE Symposium on Security and Privacy 
Workshops proceedings. Submitted papers must not substantially overlap 
papers that have been published or that are simultaneously submitted to
a journal or a conference with proceedings. Please see the workshop CFP
web site (http://ieee-security.org/TC/SPW2016/MoST/cfp.html) for
