The paradigms of mobile computing and cloud computing are currently revolutionizing our way of communicating and computing. They impact and redefine how we store, retrieve, process, and share information in business and private settings. The fact that increasingly many systems rely on these paradigms increases our dependence on the security, privacy, availability, and robustness of the involved operations, components, and systems.
This workshop will provide insights into the latest research and development activities on this topic. Our goal is to share information and knowledge on the latest advances in secure cloud, grid and utility computing, outsourced computations, trusted computing (including virtual machines and hypervisors), mobile phone and smartphone operations, and mobile computing, among others.
During two days, the workshop will host a number of invited speakers who will give tutorials and research talks related to security issues in mobile computing and cloud computing.
The program consists of invited talks on secure mobile and cloud computing. The speakers are:
