Description

Advances in mobile hardware architectures and tremendous growth of high-speed wide-area cellular systems deliver anytime and anyplace availability of network-based information services to the owners of mobile computing devices. Ever-growing popularity of mobile devices, such as smart phones and netbooks, drives the demand for the development of innovative software and hardware architectures, applications, and network services aimed at these devices. As a result, we are witnessing a paradigm shift in the way people use computing technology in their everyday lives.

Behind this dramatic increase in the use of mobile communications and mobile devices, there is an implicit assumption of information security, privacy and trust (SPT). However, for this assumption to be correct, wireless communication and backend infrastructure, mobile device architectures, and mobile applications must be designed from the ground up with security and privacy concerns in mind. Security, privacy and trust cannot be an afterthought and must be an intrinsic requirement of any mobile computing system or mobile application.

The objective of the workshop is to create a forum for practitioners and researchers interested in the most recent developments in mobile computing and mobile applications with strong support for SPT. The workshop will serve as a venue to present and discuss novel and experimental mobile applications, architectures and mobile computing systems, discuss their work in progress and receive valuable feedback from peers.
