Call for Papers

Full/Short Paper Deadline: October 16th 2017

The goal of the "Conference on Mobile Applications, Security, and Services" is to explore the challenges, issues and opportunities both for academic researchers and industrial innovators.

We are looking for both research papers on new applications and presentations of deployment experiments or new business opportunities.

This conference aims to bring researchers and industrial experts together to discuss the latest frontiers of mobile technology and also novel applications that have not been thought of before.

In an always-on and everything connected context, mobile applications are more and more interacting with sensitive or personal resources hosted in cloud computing or Internet of Things infrastructure. As a consequence, security and trust are critical issues, and likely a prerequisite for the deployment of IoT frameworks.

Among other, the NFC technology enables communication in close proximity. With NFC mobiles surfacing the market so quickly, mobile operating systems are prepared for support with dedicated frameworks. This offers researchers and developers a great opportunity for getting quick traction with novel applications.

So far, the main close proximity enabled services deal with payment, access control, or ticketing. Commercial applications today mainly target mobile payments, or eTickets managed by transportation companies. The broad availability of communication technologies fertilizes research and development of novel applications and can go well beyond these intended applications.

The conference welcomes contributions addressing (but not limited to) the following topics:

Proximity communication technologies for mobile (NFC, Bluetooth Low Energy, ZibBee,), secure transactions over proximity communications;

Trust for mobile applications and services, Secure Elements, SIM frameworks; SecureSD, (including Google Vault) platforms; Single Wire Protocol (SWP); Trusted Service Manager (TSM); Secure over the air (OTA) services, Flash over the air (FOTA)Hardware Secure Module (HSM)

New mobile secure architectures. Host Card Emulation (HCE). Trusted Execution Environment (TEE).

New services and business perspectives New payment applications; Apple Pay, Android Pay, Samsung Pay Services; Crypto Currencies (Bitcoin, Ethereum); secure tokenisation technologies; proximity communication for access control; automotive industry perspectives; applications for the consumer industry; applications for smart cities; Internet Of Things (IoT) new perspectives;

Mobile Applications for Social Networks.

Deployment experimentsand testing for IoT Platforms, payments, transport, ticketing, access control, couponing, macro localization (Tags).
