The 2nd IEEE International Symposium on Trust and Identity in Mobile Internet, Computing and Communications (TrustID 2012)

In conjunction with The 11th IEEE International Conference on Trust, Security and Privacy in Computing and Communications (IEEE TrustCom-12) June 25-27, 2012, Liverpool, UK

Call for Papers

Trust and identity have become important factors that influence the success of our mobile life. Current research in trust and identity still faces a number of challenges, e.g. trustworthiness of trust/identity management systems, usability and robustness of trust/identity management, trust and identity management with privacy enhancement, adaptability and scalability issues, efficient power consumption support, etc. Due to dynamically changed computing environments, mobility, limited computing capability, restricted user interface for human-device interaction, instant communication characteristics and user privacy requirements, these challenges are more difficult to overcome in the context of mobile internet, computing and communications. Following the success of TrustID 2011, TrustID 2012 aims at providing a forum for continuously discussing the latest academic and industrial research results related to trust and identity in the area of mobile internet, computing and communications. Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:
