About ACM WiSec 2017

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. In addition to the traditional ACM WiSec topics of physical, link, and network layer security, we welcome papers focusing on the security and privacy of mobile software platforms, usable security and privacy, biometrics, cryptography, and the increasingly diverse range of mobile or wireless applications such as Internet of Things, and Cyber-Physical Systems. The conference welcomes both theoretical as well as systems contributions.

ACM WiSec 2017 will be held from July 18 to July 20, 2017 in Boston, USA.

This year WiSec introduces opinion papers and WiSec reproducibility label. Please join us for the distinguished keynotes, panel and tutorial at WiSec 2017.
