Call for Pre-Conference Workshops and Tutorials
Download call for pre-conference workshops and tutorials (pdf).
Pre-conference workshops and tutorials will be held on Tuesday 14 May 2019, one day prior to 12th
Conference on Security and Privacy in Wireless and Mobile Networks (ACM WiSec), which will be held
in Miami Beach, Florida. ACM WiSec is the leading ACM and SIGSAC conference dedicated to all
aspects of security and privacy in wireless and mobile networks and their applications. More
information about the 12th ACM WiSec conference can be found at https://wisec19.fiu.edu.
Researchers and practitioners interested in chairing workshops or hosting tutorials are invited to
submit proposals for workshops or tutorials.
Potential workshop and tutorial topics include, but are not limited to:
Security and Privacy for Wireless 5G Networks and Beyond
Wireless Security for Edge/Fog Computing
Security and Privacy for Wireless Cyber-Physical Systems
5G Physical Layer Security and Privacy
Security and Privacy for Spectrum Sharing Systems
Security and Privacy for Large-scale Wireless Platforms and Testbeds
The goal of the workshops is to provide researchers and practitioners a forum to address important
research topics to generate new ideas, discuss open questions and compare advantages and
disadvantages of competing approaches. Also, controversial topics are welcomed. Organizers of a
workshop are required to assume responsibility of coordinating workshop participation, publishing the
program and moderating the workshop and optionally publishing the workshop proceedings.
Workshops can be half-day or full-day workshops with intermediary breaks between sessions for offline discussions.
We strongly suggest workshops not to include more than 12 talks per day. Panel
sessions are also welcome.
Proposals for tutorials targeting any topics relevant to wireless and mobile network security are
welcomed. Tutorials should be of interest to a significant portion of the WiSec community and
represent a relatively mature area of research or practice. The scope of the tutorial should be
sufficiently broad not as to cover only specific tools or technologies of particular organizations, but
rather provide a balanced overview of an area of security research.
Each tutorial will be approximately 2-3 hours, 3-4 tutorials in total, running in parallel with workshop
