Call For Papers

?The Third International Workshop on Ubiquitous Computing Security Issues (UCSI'12)

In conjunction with the
7th International Conference for Internet Technology and Secured Transactions (ICITST-2012)
December 10-12, 2012, London, UK

Workshop Summary
In the last few years we have witnessed a significant increase in the use of computers and mobile devices in Ubiquitous
Computing (Ubicomp) Systems. While this is a welcoming trend, security concerns become a major obstacle for adoption of
Ubicomp systems. Unless deliberate efforts are taken to ensure secure Ubicomp systems from design to implementation,
most of the advancements in Ubicomp research may not be realised.

The Ubiquitous Computing Security Issues (UCSI) workshop will bring together researchers and industry participants who are
involved in the design, development, and implementation of novel applications, architectures and frameworks from the Ubicomp
research domain. The UCSI workshop will provide a high profile, leading edge forum for researchers and engineers alike to present
state-of-the-art research in the field of security for Ubiquitous Computing.

The UCSI workshop invites original, high-quality research contributions. In particular, contributions that identify the
state-of-the-art in the design, development, deployment, evaluation and understanding of security issues for Ubiquitous
Computing systems.
