Call for Papers

Full/Short Paper Deadline: November 23rd 2015 November 30th 2015

Posters/Works in Progress Paper Deadline: January 11th 2016

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.
In an always-on and everything connected context, mobile applications are more and more interacting with sensitive or personal resources hosted in cloud computing infrastructures. As a consequence, security and trust are critical issues.
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 NFC-enabled services deal with payment, access control, or ticketing. Commercial applications today mainly target contactless payments, i.e., eWallets or eTickets managed by transportation companies. The broad availability of NFC-technology fertilizes research and development of novel applications and can go well beyond these intended applications.
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.

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

Proximity communication technologies for mobile (NFC, Low Power Bluetooth,), 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;

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

New services and business perspectives New payment applications; Apple Pay, Google Pay, Samsung Pay Services; 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 experiments and testing Payments, transport, ticketing, access control, couponing, macro localization (Tags).
