Call for Papers
Recognizing the importance of smartphone security and privacy, the Annual ACM

[Topics of Interest]
* Device/hardware security

* Secure application development
* Cloud support for mobile security
* Mobile device management

We also encourage novel paradigms and controversial ideas that are not on the
above list. The workshop is to act as a venue for creative debate and
interaction in security- and privacy-sensitive areas of computing and
communication impacted by smartphones. We will favor submissions that are
radical, forward-looking, and open-ended, as opposed to mature work on the verge
of conference or journal publication. Submissions that discuss a real-world
problem without a solution are encouraged.
