 Call for Papers
 First IEEE Conference on Communications and Network Security (IEEE CNS 2013)
 *** Washington D.C., USA *** October 14 ~16, 2013 ***
 ******   http://www.ieee-cns.org   ******
 Cyber security has become an important research and development area
 for academia, government, and industry in recent years.  As
 government and industry investment in cyber security research
 continues to grow, there will be a dramatic increase in the amount of
 new results generated by the research community, which must be
 disseminated widely amongst the research community in order to
 provide the peer review feedback that is needed to ensure that
 high-quality solutions that address important and emerging security
 issues are developed.
 As a leading professional society focusing on communications
 technologies, IEEE Communications Society (ComSoc) has identified the
 need for a high-quality security conference that would focus on
 communications-oriented aspects of security. IEEE ComSoc has thus
 decided to launch a new conference dedicated to Communications and
 Network Security. This new conference is positioned to be a core
 ComSoc conference (at a level comparable to IEEE INFOCOM ) and will
 serve as a premier forum for cyber security researchers,
 practitioners, policy makers, and users to exchange ideas, techniques
 and tools, raise awareness, and share experience related to security
 and privacy.
 IEEE CNS seeks original high-quality technical papers from academia,
 government, and industry. Topics of interest encompass all practical
 and theoretical aspects of communications and network security, all
 the way from the physical layer to the various network layers to the
 variety of applications reliant on a secure communication
 substrate. Submissions with main contribution in other areas, such as
 information security, software security, system security, or applied
 cryptography, will also be considered if a clear connection to secure
 communications/networking is demonstrated.
 Particular topics of interest include, but are not limited to
 + 	Security and Privacy in the Internet, peer-to-peer networks,
        overlay networks  
 + 	Security and Privacy in Wi-Fi, Wi-Max, ad hoc, mesh, sensor,
        and RFID networks  
 + 	Security and Privacy in emerging technologies: social
        networks, cognitive radio networks, disruption/delay tolerant
        networks, vehicular networks, cloud computing, smart grid 
 + 	Cross-layer methods for enhancing security
 +	Information-theoretic security
 +	Anonymization and privacy in communication systems
 +	Traffic analysis, location privacy and obfuscation of mobile
        device information 
 +	Physical layer security methods: confidentiality and authentication
 +	Secure routing, network management
 +	Intrusion detection
 +	Computer and network forensics 
 +	Vulnerability, exploitation tools, Malware, Botnet, DDoS attacks 
 +	Key management and PKI
 +	Security metrics and performance evaluation, traffic analysis
 +	Web, e-commerce, m-commerce, and e-mail security 
 +	Social, economic and policy issues of trust, security and privacy
 +	Ensuring the availability of communications, survivability of
        networks in the presence of denial of service 
 +	Jamming and jamming-resistance,
 +	Multipath routing around network holes
