                Call for Papers

         2nd International Conference on 
     Security in Pervasive Computing, SPC2005
          April 6-8, 2005  Boppard, Germany


Deadline: October 15, 2004

The ongoing shrinking of computing facilities to small and mobile 
devices like handhelds, portables or even wearable computers will 
enhance an ubiquitous information processing. The basic paradigm 
of such a pervasive computing is the combination of strongly 
decentralized and distributed computing with the help of diversified 
devices allowing for spontaneous connectivity. Computers will become 
invisible to the users awareness and exchange of information between 
devices will effectively defy users control.

The objective of this conference is to develop new security concepts 
for complex application scenarios based on systems like handhelds, 
phones, smartcards, RF-chips and smart labels hand in hand with the 
emerging technology of ubiquitous and pervasive computing. Particular 
topics include but are not limited to methods and technologies 
·	the identification of risks, 
·	the definition of  security policies, and 
·	the development of security and privacy measures especially 
        cryptographic protocols 
related to the specific aspects of ubiquitous and pervasive computing 
like mobility, location based services, ad-hoc networking, resource 
allocation/restriction, invisibility and secure hardware/software 

Important Dates:

Submission of papers: 		October 15, 2004
Notification:			December 15, 2004
Camera ready copy:		January 15, 2005
Conference:			April, 6 - 8, 2005


We welcome the submission of papers from the full spectrum of issues 
associated with security in pervasive computing. Submitted papers must 
not substantially overlap with papers that have been published or that 
are simultaneously submitted to a journal or a conference with proceedings.

The accepted papers will be published in the Springer Lecture Notes 
Series on Computer Science (LNCS).

Papers should be at most 15 pages total (Springer LNCS style). The paper
should start with the title, names of authors and an abstract. All papers 
must be submitted electronically. Details will be published on the web
page of the conference 



The conference will be held at an old former monastery in Boppard, Germany. 
Boppard is a nice small town located in the rhine valley about one hour away 
from Frankfurt airport.


The conference will be organised jointly by 
- Federal Office for Information Security (BSI) 
- German Research Center for Artificial Intelligence  (DFKI)
