ACM Workshop on Security of Ad Hoc and Sensor Networks
Nov 7, 2005, Hilton Alexandria Mark Center, Alexandria, VA, USA
Held in conjunction with ACM CCS '05
Sponsored by the Army Research Office (ARO)


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 2005 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 success of SASN 2003 and SASN 2004.

TOPICS OF INTEREST include, but are not limited to, the following as
they relate to mobile ad hoc networks or sensor networks:

* Security under resource constraints (e.g., energy, bandwidth,
   memory, and computation constraints)
* Performance and security tradeoffs
* Secure data management in sensor networks
* 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
* Secure clock distribution
* 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. Submissions are
to be made to the web site Only pdf or
postscript files will be accepted. Submission size should ideally be
less than 1MB and no more than 2MB. Authors who have difficulty with
the 2MB size limit should inform the program co-chairs by email to
pning (at) ncsu dot edu. Papers must be received by the deadline of
July 1, 2005. (To make sure the deadline is valid "from anywhere in
the world", SASN 2005 uses the "GMT -12:00" time zone.)

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. Outstanding papers will be
invited for possible publication in a special issue of Journal of
Computer Security (JCS) on Security of Ad-Hoc and Sensor Networks.
