 Call for Papers
 First IEEE Conference on Communications and Network Security (IEEE CNS 
 *** 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 
 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, 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 
 +       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 techniques 
 +       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
