ACM WiSec 2012

Call for Posters and Demos (TXT)

The ACM Conference on Security and Privacy in Wireless and Mobile Networks is a forum for discussing security and privacy solutions for existing and emerging wireless and mobile networks. It draws upon a broad array of disciplines that span security, privacy, communications and networking. In addition to technical research papers, the technical program of ACM WiSec 2012 will include a Poster and Demonstration Session to provide a venue for presenting work that is at a nascent state of development or for demonstrating new technologies that are relevant to wireless networking and security. The WiSec Program Committee is encouraging both academic and industrial submissions, with the objective of exchanging ideas and receiving timely feedback from other members of the research community. Submissions to the Poster and Demonstration Session will be evaluated based on technical merit and innovation as well as their potential to stimulate interesting discussions and exchange of ideas. Ideally, the demos should allow participants to try things out themselves.

Submission Instructions for Posters and Demonstrations

For the posters, authors should submit a two page extended abstract that provides sufficient technical detail so that the evaluation committee can assess the technical merit of the work. The poster abstracts do not have to present completed work, but at the same time should provide enough concrete evidence to support the potential and validity of the proposed ideas.

For demos, authors should to submit a two page extended abstract that describes the technology that they have developed, the relevance to wireless networking and security, and which also highlights the novelty of the prototype. For demonstrations, the abstract should also contain an extra page that clearly describes what conference participants will be able to see or do during the demonstration. Demonstrations should have a research component and, in particular, should not push a commercial agenda.

Both types of abstracts should follow the WiSec formatting guidelines (with a 2 page limit), and authors should refer to the main WiSec website for instructions related to formatting. Abstracts of accepted posters and demos will be distributed to conference participants. The demo session will have a table per demo, power and wireless connectivity available. If a demonstration requires special arrangements, please note them in a separate email to the session chair parallel to submission.

Please submit your poster or demo proposal through the EasyChair Conference Management System. For demos, the extra page technically describing how participants will experience the demo should be uploaded as a separate attachment. This can also be a ZIP or tgz archive containing additional material to better illustrate your demo.
