Call for Papers

Paper Deadline: December 1st 2014 Extended to December 8th 2014

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 context, mobile applications (as an illustration in 2013, more tablets were sold than laptops) 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. Today, one million NFC smartphones are sold every week. 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 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 Services; secure tokenisation technlogies; 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).
