Second Call For Papers

SEWCN 2009 : The First ICST International Workshop on Security in
Emerging Wireless Communication and Networking Systems


September 14, 2009, Athens, Greece

In conjunction with SecureComm, 2009


Sponsored by ICST

Technically co-sponsored by CREATE-NET


Innovative wireless communication and networking systems have been
proposed and studied in recent years, including cognitive radio
networks, multi-channel multi-radio networks, cyber-physical systems,
vehicle ad hoc networks, and others. The goal of this workshop is to
develop and employ secure architectaures and protocols to enhance
these emerging wireless systems. As these wireless systems have new
features and serve new applications, they are raising new security
concerns that existing security technologies may not be sufficient to
tackle. Hence, these wireless systems require re-examination of
current security techniques and creation of new security schemes. The
design of these wireless systems also needs security as an integral
part to prevent misuse of them and assure their functionality. This
workshop particularly invites new ideas on security in the context of
these emerging wireless communication and networking systems,
including identifying new threats and new primitives for supporting
secure system design.

*Topics of Interest

This workshop invites original technical papers that were not
previously published and are not currently under review for
publication elsewhere. Topics on security in emerging wireless systems
include, but are not limited to the following:

Vulnerabilities and threats
Cross-layer design for security
Security of cognitive radio
Security of channel management
Resilient control over network
Secure neighbor and location discovery
Key management
Intrusion detection and response
User and data privacy
Anti-jamming communication
Denial of service

*Important Dates

Submission deadline : July 1
Notification date : July 27
Camera ready submission : Aug 3

*Paper Submission and Publishing

Papers should be prepared according to the LNICST format. The style
template and instructions are available at
Submitted papers should not exceed 9 pages in single column and should
be in PDF format. All submitted papers will be judged based on their
quality through double-blind reviewing, where the identities of the
authors should not appear in the paper. Authours should submit papers
to the EasyChair system at

The proceeding of the workshop will be published with LNICST (Springer
Lecture Notes of ICST) and distributed through an extensive global
network of library consortia and appear on SpringerLink, one of the
largest online scientific libraries, as well as the European Union
Digital Library (EUDL), ICST's official digital library.
