ACM WiSec 2013

Call for Papers (TXT, PDF)

WiSec has been broadening its scope and seeks to present high quality research papers exploring security and privacy aspects of wireless communications, mobile networks, and their applications. Beyond the traditional Wisec staples of physical, link, and network layer security, we also welcome papers focusing on the security and privacy of mobile software platforms and the increasingly diverse range of mobile or wireless applications. The conference welcomes both theoretical as well as systems contributions.

Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:

  • Mobile malware and platform security
  • Security & Privacy for Smart Devices (e.g., Smartphones)
  • Wireless and mobile privacy and anonymity
  • Secure localization and location privacy
  • Cellular network fraud and security
  • Jamming attacks and defenses
  • Key extraction, agreement, or distribution in wireless and mobile settings
  • Theoretical foundations, cryptographic primitives, and formal methods for wireless security and privacy
  • NFC and smart payment applications
  • Security and privacy for mobile sensing systems
  • Wireless or mobile security and privacy in health, automotive, avionics, or smart grid applications

The proceedings of ACM WiSec will be published by the ACM.

Full paper submissions to WiSec 2013 can be up to 10 pages in the ACM conference style excluding the bibliography and well marked appendices, and up to 12 pages in total. WiSec also encourages the submission of short papers with a length of up to 6 pages, which describe mature work of a more succinct nature. All papers must be thoroughly anonymized for double-blind reviewing. Detailed submission instructions will appear at

DOUBLE SUBMISSIONS: It is a policy of the ACM to disallow double submissions, where the same (or substantially similar) paper is concurrently submitted to multiple conferences/journals. Any double submissions detected will be immediately rejected from all conferences/journals involved.
