This second Ubicomp workshop on security seeks to improve the understanding of security threats and mechanims in the emerging world of ubiquitous computing. We are looking for analyses, models and systems, new directions, and novel applications of established mechanisms approaching the risks and concerns associated with the utilization and acceptance of ubiquitous computing devices and systems. The workshop is aimed at providing a forum for highly interactive presentations and lively discussions.

We invite you to submit position papers, extended abstracts, and system descriptions addressing topics relevant to security in ubiquitous computing including, but not limited to, the following:

  • New models for trust, privacy and content protection
  • The absence of a priori trust and trust establishment
  • Authentication and integrity protection
  • Security in adaptive infrastructures
  • The use of context information for security assurance
Don't hesitate to bring forward new ideas or controversial approaches, even if they are at an early stage of development. We believe that the complex nature of smart environments, spontaneous interaction, context awareness and other ubicomp technologies deserves unconventional approaches when dealing with security issues.
