3rd IEEE Conference on Communications and Network Security 
Florence, Italy -- September 28-30, 2015

IEEE Conference on Communications and Network Security (CNS) is a new
conference series in IEEE Communications Society (ComSoc) core
conference portfolio and the only ComSoc conference focusing solely on
cyber security. IEEE CNS is also a spin-off of IEEE INFOCOM, the
premier ComSoc conference on networking. The goal of CNS is to provide
an outstanding forum for cyber security researchers, practitioners,
policy makers, and users to exchange ideas, techniques and tools,
raise awareness, and share experience related to all practical and
theoretical aspects of communications and network security.

Building on the success of the past two years' conferences, IEEE
CNS 2015 seeks original high-quality technical papers from academia,
government, and industry. Topics of interest encompass all practical
and theoretical aspects of communications and network security, all
the way from the physical layer to the various network layers to the
variety of applications reliant on a secure communication
substrate. Submissions with main contribution in other areas, such as
information security, software security, system security, or applied
cryptography, will also be considered if a clear connection to secure
communications/networking is demonstrated.

Particular topics of interest include, but are not limited to:

* Anonymization and privacy in communication systems
* Biometric authentication and identity management
* Computer and network forensics
* Data and application security
* Data protection and integrity
* Availability of communications, survivability of networks in the
  presence of attacks
* Key management and PKI for networks
* Information-theoretic security
* Intrusion detection and prevention
* Location privacy
* Mobile security
* Outsourcing of network and data communication services
* Physical layer security methods, cross-layer methods for enhancing security
* Secure routing, network management
* Security for critical infrastructures
* Security metrics and performance evaluation
* Security and privacy for big data
* Security and privacy in body area networks
* Security and privacy in content delivery network
* Security and privacy in cloud computing and federated cloud
* Security and privacy in crowdsourcing
* Security and privacy in the Internet of Things
* Security and privacy in multihop wireless networks: ad hoc, mesh,
  sensor, vehicular and RFID networks
* Security and privacy in peer-to-peer networks and overlay networks
* Security and privacy in single-hop wireless networks: Wi-Fi, Wi-Max
* Security and privacy in smart grid, cognitive radio networks, and
  disruption/delay tolerant networks
* Security and privacy in social networks
* Security and privacy in pervasive and ubiquitous computing
* Social, economic and policy issues of trust, security and privacy
* Traffic analysis
* Usable security for networked computer systems
* Vulnerability, exploitation tools, malware, botnet, DDoS attacks
* Web, e-commerce, m-commerce, and e-mail security

Please Note: To be published in the IEEE CNS 2015 Conference
Proceedings and to be eligible for publication in IEEE Xplore, an
author of an accepted paper is required to register for the conference
at the full (member or non-member) rate and the paper must be
presented by an author of that paper at the conference unless the TPC
Chair grants permission for a substitute presenter arranged in advance
of the event and who is qualified both to present and answer
questions.  Non-refundable registration fees must be paid prior to
uploading the final IEEE formatted, publication-ready version of the
paper.  For authors with multiple accepted papers, one full
registration is valid for up to 3 papers. Accepted and presented
papers will be published in the IEEE CNS 2015 Conference Proceedings
and submitted to IEEE Xplore as well as other Abstracting and Indexing
(A&I) databases.

Paper submission: 24 April 2015
Notification date: 29 June 2015
Final paper: 17 July 2015
