The First IEEE/IFIP EUC Workshop on Data Management, Security and
Privacy in Sensor Networks and RFID (DSPSR 2011)

In conjunction with the 9th IEEE/IFIP International Conference on
Embedded and Ubiquitous Computing (EUC 2011), October 24-26, 2011.

Melbourne, Australia.


As the real world deployment of wireless sensor networks and RFID
systems becomes increasingly common place, the issues of data
management, security and privacy of these systems need to be
addressed. Sensor networks and RFID make possible innovative
applications in important areas such as healthcare, homeland security,
early warning systems, emergency response and other time and/or life
critical situations. These applications demand that the management of
data, the security of these systems from a network and application
perspective as well as the privacy of these systems from a user and
data perspective are efficient and can be guaranteed. Hence the main
motivation for this workshop is to bring together researchers and
practitioners working on related areas in wireless sensor networks and
RFID to present current research advances. The aim of the workshop is
to provide a platform for the discussion of the major research
challenges and achievements on the following topics of interest but
not limited to:

Data Fusion and Aggregation

Information discovery and query processing

Network Scheduling

Distributed Information Processing

Remote reprogramming

Intrusion detection and response

Privacy preserving techniques

Network Resilience and Recovery

Vulnerability and Cryptanalysis

Lightweight Cryptography for sensors and RFID

Security Standards, Frameworks and Protocols

Security in mobile sensor and RFID systems

Trust management and related frameworks

Security policy and management

Key management techniques

Security Issues in specific application contexts (e.g., healthcare, military, supply chains)
