Sometimes we forget that its not just companies within our industry that are providing thought leadership on relative topics concerning the mobile app industry. The top minds at universities across the globe are also analyzing current and future developments.

This May in San Jose, California, the Mobile Security Technologies (MoST) conference brought together researchers, practitioners, policy makers, and hardware/software developers of mobile systems to explore the latest understanding and advances in the security and privacy for mobile devices, applications, and systems.

MoST is a part of the IEEE Symposium on Security and Privacy (SP) which, since 1980, has provided a forum for the presentation of developments in computer security and electronic privacy, and for bringing together researchers and practitioners in the field.

Faculty members from a number of top universities gave presentations during the MoST conference. Below is a list of the presentations, each of which is available as a pdf and is accompanied by the slide presentation used at the conference. You can access all of the papers here.
