2004 ACM Workshop on Security of Ad Hoc and Sensor Networks (SASN 2004)

To be held in conjunction with the 11th ACM Conference on Computer and
		       Communications Security
	 October 25, 2004, Wyndham City Hotel, Washington, DC
		       Sponsored by ACM SIGSAC


Ad hoc and sensor networks are expected to become an integral part of
the future computing landscape.  However, these networks introduce new
security challenges due to their dynamic topology, severe resource
constraints, and absence of a trusted infrastructure.  SASN 2004 seeks
submissions from academia and industry presenting novel research on
all aspects of security for ad hoc and sensor networks, as well as
experimental studies of fielded systems.  This one-day workshop builds
on the huge success of the first SASN workshop held in Fairfax, VA
(http://www.cs.gmu.edu/sasn/2003).  Submission of papers based on
work-in-progress is encouraged.  Topics of interest include, but are
not limited to, the following as they relate to wireless networks,
mobile ad hoc networks, or sensor networks:

* Security under resource constraints, e.g., energy, bandwidth, memory,
  and computation constraints
* Performance and security tradeoffs
* Secure roaming across administrative domains
* Key management
* Cryptographic protocols
* Authentication and access control
* Trust establishment, negotiation, and management
* Intrusion detection and tolerance
* Secure location services
* Privacy and anonymity
* Secure routing
* Secure MAC protocols
* Denial of service
* Prevention of traffic analysis

Submission Instructions:

Submitted papers must not substantially overlap with papers that have
been published or that are simultaneously submitted to a journal or a
conference with proceedings.  Papers should be at most 15 pages
excluding the bibliography and well-marked appendices, using at least
11-point font and reasonable margins on US letter-size paper (8.5 inch
x 11 inch).  Committee members are not required to read the
appendices, and so submissions should be intelligible without them.
Each submission should start with the title, abstract, and names and
contact information of authors.  The introduction should give
background and summarize the contributions of the paper at a level
appropriate for a non-specialist reader.

All paper submissions will be handled electronically.  Papers must be
submitted in PDF or portable PostScript format and must be received by
the deadline of July 2, 2004.  Instructions for electronic submission
of papers will be posted at:

Conference proceedings will be published by the ACM and made available
at the workshop.  Authors of accepted papers must guarantee that their
paper will be presented at the workshop.
