===============IEEE CNS 2016 Call For Papers==================================
IEEE Conference on Communications and Network Security
17-19 October 2016 // Philadelphia, PA USA

IEEE Conference on Communications and Network Security (CNS) is a
recently added conference series in the IEEE Communications Society
(ComSoc) core conference portfolio and the only ComSoc conference
focusing solely on cyber security. 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 three years' conferences,
IEEE CNS 2016 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 network layer to
applications reliant on a secure communication substrate. Submissions
with main contributions in other security 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 multi-hop 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 2016 Conference
Proceedings and to be eligible for publication in IEEEXplore?, 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 three papers.  Accepted and presented
papers will be published in the IEEE 2016 Conference Proceedings and
submitted to IEEE Xplore? as well as other Abstracting and Indexing
(A&I) databases.
