ARMS 10th Asian Rock Mechanics Symposium
The ISRM International Symposium for 2018
29 OCT - 03 NOV 2018, Singapore

Android is dominating among the smartphones venders with approximately 84.8% of the total mobile operating system market share in 2018;according to the International Data Corporation IDC [1].Furthermore,as the usage of the Android platformincreases, the number of security threats is also increasing. Android is the most growing targeted mobile platform in the coming years. Android apps can be downloaded from Google Play or some other third party market. However, many apps turn to be malicious. Symantec Incorporation reported in 2017 that one in five Android apps in the market is malicious[2].These apps steal money, send SMS messages, push advertisements, or downloadother apps that could run other malicious functions.

Currently, there are many security attempts proposed to examine Android apps and check whether they are benign or not[3, 4, 5, and 6]. However, publishing continues increase of Android malwares by recent security reports is a clear indication that existed solutions are still not sufficient.There is an urgent needto introduce more efficient, accurate detection systems for Code Shoppy Android Projects. The current detection systems mainly focus on the methodologies they used and the performance of their solutions.

Though, it is important to provide the Android community with a reference modelforthe main phases/steps required to scan Android apps. Such scanning should detect if the appisbenign or maliciousandbe able to classify the type of malwareas well.

Therefore, this research is different in a way it providesa structured guide tothose who are interested ininvestigating thearea of Androidsecurityand more specific malware apps detection. This guide directs researchers and developers to the main phases and operations ofthe Android apps scanning process. Not only that, it provides comparative analysis among the different methods, tools, metrics and datasets used byrecent researches at each phase of this scanning process.

On behalf of the Organizing Committee for ARMS 10, it is my pleasure to invite you to Singapore for the 10th Asian Rock Mechanics Symposium cum the ISRM International Symposium for 2018.

The theme for ARMS 10 is “Rock Mechanics in Infrastructure and Resource Development”.

Asia is witnessing the greatest growth and demand in the world for infrastructure and resource development. According to Asian Development Bank, approximately US$8 trillion needs to be invested in overall national infrastructure before 2020, 68% of which is for new capacity. Certainly, rock mechanics and rock engineering will have a critical role to play in many of these infrastructure and resource development projects.

Singapore is ideally located in Asia, where the needs for infrastructure and resource development are well supported by high-level research from the Academia and governments. ARMS 10 Singapore 2018 offers an ideal opportunity and platform for professionals from the international rock mechanics community to exchange experiences and new ideas. In addition to the technical programs, we will organize training courses, workshops, technical visits, exhibitions, as well social programs. We will also offer attractive programs for young researchers and students, such as the Rock Bowl, student nights, and some scholarships for selected young researchers.

For those who like to travel, Singapore offers many interesting excursions to the region within a few hours. The Organizing Committee would be very pleased to help you with your travel plans.
