Ubiquitous Computing Security Systems (UCSS 2008)

Call For Papers

This workshop will bring together researchers and industry participants who are involved with the design, development, and implementation of novel secure ubiquitous applications which can be used in heterogeneous computer systems and mobile devices.

In the last few years we have witnessed a significant increase in the use of the computers and mobile devices in Ubiquitous Computing Systems. While this is a welcome trend, security concerns are becoming one of the major problems. It is affecting the adoption rate and usage of these systems. Unless deliberate efforts are taken to secure these systems from design to implementation most of development achieved to date may not be realised and rolled out to the real world.

Important Dates

Paper submission deadline: July 25, 2008 (extended deadline)
Notification of Paper acceptance: August 10, 2008
Camera-ready paper submission: Aug 31, 2008
