Call for Posters and Demonstrations


ACM WiSec 2014 will run from July 23rd to July 25th, 2014. It will be co-located with RFIDSec'14 in Oxford, UK.

The ACM Conference on Security and Privacy in Wireless and Mobile Networks is a forum for discussing security and privacy aspects of wireless communications, mobile networks, and their applications. It draws upon a broad array of disciplines that span security, privacy, communications and networking. In addition to the traditional ACM WiSec topics of physical, link, and network layer security, WiSec also focuses on both theoretical and systems contributions in the security and privacy of mobile software platforms, usable security and privacy, biometrics and the increasingly diverse range of mobile or wireless applications.

In addition to technical research papers, the technical program of ACM WiSec 2014 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 ACM WiSec 2014 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 demonstrations should allow participants to try things out themselves.

Submission Instructions for Posters and Demonstrations

For 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 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 describe 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 ACM WiSec 2014 formatting guidelines (with a 2 page limit), and authors should refer to the paper submission instructions for information 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.

Note: all poster titles should begin with the keyword "POSTER: " and all demo titles should start with "DEMO: "

Registration requirement: At least one Poster/Demo author must be registered and attend the conference.
