Workshop Background and Goals

Future ICT technologies, like the concepts of Ambient Intelligence and Internet of Things provide a vision of the Information Society where the emphasis is on surrounding people by intelligent interactive interfaces and objects and on environments that are capable of recognising and reacting to the presence of different individuals in a seamless, unobtrusive and invisible manner. The success of future ICT technologies, some of which are set as priorities by the European Union, will depend on how secure they will be made, how privacy and individuals’ rights will be protected and how individuals will come to trust the intelligent world that will surround them and through which they will move. WISTP 2012 aims to address the security and privacy issues that are increasingly exposed by mobile and wireless communications and related services, along with evaluating their impact on business, individuals, and the society.

The workshop seeks submissions from academia and industry presenting novel research on all theoretical and practical aspects of security and privacy of mobile and smart devices, as well as experimental studies of fielded systems based on wireless communication, the application of security technology, the implementation of systems, and lessons learned. We encourage submissions from other communities such as law, business and policy that present these communities' perspectives on technological issues.
