Call for Papers:

Workshop on Physical Layer Security, Houston TX 2011 
(in conjunction with the IEEE Globecom Conference).

There has been a growing interest in recent times in using resources
at the Physical Layer for designing novel security techniques that
compliment existing cryptographic methods. Such solutions often
exploit the unique characteristics of wireless channels in defeating
both active and passive adversaries. The Physical–Layer Security
Workshop will take place in conjunction with the Globecom 2011 in
Houston TX and aims to bring together researchers working on various
aspects of Physical layer security to present their latest research

Prospective Authors are encouraged to submit unpublished contributions
in physical-layer security including (but not limited to) the
following topics:

- Code design for wiretap channels
- Alignment and structured codes for wiretap channels
- Secrecy capacity of multipath, fading, MIMO channels
- Effects of channel state information on secure communications
- Cooperative secure communications
- Secret key agreement and distillation
- Secret key capacity of wireless channels
- Integration of physical-layer security into wireless systems
- Practical and implementation issues
- Game theoretic Models for PHY-Security
