ESAS 2005
2nd European Workshop on Security and Privacy in Ad hoc and Sensor Networks
Workshop on Security and Privacy in Ad hoc and Sensor Networks
July 14-15, 2005, Budapest, Hungary
in conjunction with the First International Conference on Wireless
Internet (WICON)

The vision of ubiquitous computing has generated a lot of interest in
wireless ad hoc and sensor networks. However, besides their potential
advantages, these new generations of networks also raise some
challenging problems with respect to security and privacy. The aim of
this workshop is to bring together the network security, cryptography,
and wireless networking communities in order to discuss these problems
and to propose new solutions. The second ESAS workshop seeks
submissions that present original research on all aspects of security
and privacy in wireless ad hoc and sensor networks. Submission of
papers based on work-in-progress is encouraged. Topics of interest
include, but are not limited to the following:

    * Privacy and anonymity
    * Prevention of traffic analysis
    * Location privacy
    * Secure positioning and localization
    * Secure MAC protocols
    * Secure topology control
    * Secure routing
    * Secure in-network processing


    * Secure context aware computing
    * Cooperation and fairness
    * Charging and rewarding
    * Key management
    * Trust establishment
    * Embedded security
    * Cryptography for resource constrained applications
    * Distributed intrusion detection

Instructions for Authors

Authors are invited to submit original papers. All submissions will be
refereed. Submissions must not substantially duplicate work that any
of the authors have published elsewhere or have submitted in
parallel. The submissions must not exceed 10 pages (excluding the
title page, bibliography and appendices) nor 12 pages overall. The
final version should not exceed 15 pages. The preferred submission
format is PDF or PostScript. We recommend that you generate the PDF or
PS file using LaTeX and the LNCS style available at . Further information on how to submit papers
will be available here.  Workshop Proceedings

The Proceedings will be published by Springer after the Workshop in
the Lecture Notes in Computer Science (LNCS) Series
( ). Notice that in order to be included in
the proceedings, the authors of an accepted paper must guarantee to
