"5G network security" by Guy Pujolle

It is imperative that 5G networks are secure protecting personal data, business-sensitive information, and critical infrastructure. Building a secure 5G network requires to take a holistic view and not only focus on individual technical parts in isolation. This talk will propose a general view on how to integrate security in the whole 5G environment through end-to-end slicing.

Guy Pujolle is a Professor at Sorbonne University. Guy Pujolle is a pioneer in high-speed networking having led the development of the first Gbit/s network to be tested in 1980. He was at the origin of several inventions and important patents like DPI, Wi-Fi controller, virtual networks, metamorphic networks, and green networks.

"Deep Learning", by Selwyn Piramuthu and Wei Zhou

Deep learning has revolutionized learning difficult concepts through mapping inputs to appropriate outputs. While deep learning is not conceptually different from what existed before this term was coined, it has some distinguishing features. We discuss the history of deep learning, its features, and associated challenges.

Selwyn Piramuthu is Professor of Information Systems at the University of Florida, where he has taught since Fall 1991. His research interests include machine learning and cryptography with applications in financial credit scoring, IoT/RFID systems, scheduling, and supply chain management.

Wei Zhou is professor at the ESCP business school in Paris France. He is also the director of MSc Big Data and Business Analytics and one of the founding members of the RFID European Lab. His areas of research interests are in data mining, IoT and RFID, knowledge-based systems, and supply chain management.

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