PerSec 2004

     First IEEE International Workshop on Pervasive Computing and
			Communication Security
	(held in conjunction with PerCom 2004

			    March 14, 2004
			   Orlando, Florida
	 		   Call for Papers

Research in pervasive computing continues to gain momentum. However,
research in the provision of security and privacy in these
environments is still in its infancy. PerSec 2004 will provide an
international forum to encourage and present original research ideas
and results that address security and privacy for pervasive computing
and communication.

Contributions are solicited in all aspects of security and privacy in
pervasive computing. Topics include:

- Models for access control, authentication and privacy management.

- Incorporation of contextual information into security and privacy
  models, and mechanisms.

- Management of tradeoffs between security, usability, performance and
  other attributes.

- Architectures and engineering approaches to fit security and privacy
  features into mobile and wearable devices.

- Biometric methods for pervasive computing.

- Incorporation of security into communication protocols for pervasive

- Descriptions of pilot programs, case studies, applications, and
 experiments integrating security into pervasive computing.

- Auditing and forensic information management in pervasive settings.

- Protocols for trust management in networks for pervasive computing.

- Impact of security and privacy in relation to the social, legal,
  educational and economic implications of pervasive computing.

Submission Guidelines

Submitted papers must be unpublished and not being considered
elsewhere for publication.  Papers will be reviewed by the technical
program committee.  Papers selected for presentation will be published
in the Workshop Proceedings of PerCom 2004 by IEEE Press.  Final
papers are limited to 5 pages in IEEE 8.5x11 conference fomat (author
guidelines available at ).  Submitted
papers should comply with this length requirement.  Excessively long
papers will be returned without review.

Detailed procedure for submitting papers will be posted at .
