In Conjunction with 27th European Symposium on Research in Computer Security (ESORICS) 2022, Copenhagen, Denmark on 30 September 2022.

The current decade is already bringing forward an exponential growth in the number of Mobile IoT applications. Ranging from body-area and underwater networks, to connected vehicles and Unmanned Aerial Vehicles, dynamic and mobile IoT systems are increasingly pervading our daily lives, becoming fully ubiquitous. Thanks to advancements in chipset production and embedding technologies, tiny and smart devices are today pervasive, supporting users while moving around and enabling capillary access to the underlying physical environment.

However, designing reliable and effective security techniques for mobile IoT applications is often challenging. In fact, suitable solutions should guarantee the same robustness and trust guaranteed by modern network deployments, while also coping with the constraints affecting mobile IoT systems, including viable complexity, short delays, limited message overhead, and minimal energy consumption.

The SP-MIoT Workshop aims at providing an international forum for researchers and practitioners, across all areas, to exchange and bring perspectives, lessons learned, and new insights to the state of the art and practices of Security and Privacy in Mobile IoT. The workshop tackles the above-described challenges and provides a forum to share, discuss, and present novel ideas and solutions related to the security of IoT deployments, as well as their impact and relevance to the larger domains of privacy and security.

Submission Guidelines

Submitted papers must not substantially overlap with papers that have been published or that are simultaneously submitted to a journal or a conference / workshop with proceedings. The proceedings will be published by Springer in the Lecture Notes in Computer Science series (LNCS). Submitted papers must follow the LNCS template from the time they are submitted. Submitted papers should be at most 20 pages for full paper, and at least 10 pages for a short paper or position paper. Committee members are not required to read the appendices, so the paper should be intelligible without them. All submissions must be written in English.

Submissions must be uploaded to the following EasyChair website :

Only PDF files will be accepted. Submissions are not anonymous. Submissions not meeting these guidelines risk rejection without consideration of their merits. Authors of accepted papers must agree with Springer LNCS copyright and guarantee that their papers will be presented at the conference.



Important Dates

We are closely monitoring current COVID-19 situation. The event is planned as in-person workshop but, if necessary, it will be converted to a hybrid or fully online event.
