IEEE Conference on Communications and Network Security (IEEE CNS) is a
conference series in IEEE Communications Society (ComSoc) core
conference portfolio and the only ComSoc conference focusing solely on
cybersecurity. IEEE CNS provides a premier forum for 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 cybersecurity.

Building on the success of the past five years of conferences, IEEE
CNS 2018 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, from
the physical layer to the network layer to the variety of applications
reliant on a secure communication substrate.
