Securecomm seeks high-quality research contributions in the form 
of well-developed full papers. Topics of interest encompass research 
advances in ALL areas of secure communications and networking. Topics in 
other areas (e.g., formal methods, database security, secure software, 
theoretical cryptography) will be considered only if a clear connection 
to private or secure communication/networking is demonstrated. Securecomm 
brings together security and privacy experts in academia, industry and 
government as well as practitioners, standards developers and policy makers. 
Securecomm also serves as a venue for learning about state-of-the-art in 
security and privacy research. Presentations reporting on cutting-edge 
research results are supplemented by panels on controversial issues and 
invited talks on timely and important topics.

PAPERS: Technical papers describing original unpublished research are
Submissions must not be concurrently under review by a conference, journal 
or any other venue that has proceedings. Authors of the highest-quality 
accepted papers will be invited to submit extended version of their papers 
to a special issue of ACM Transactions on Information and System Security 

SHORT PAPERS: In addition to full papers, Securecomm 2007 invites submission 
of pithy concise technical papers (also describing original unpublished 
research). Such papers may represent work-in-progress or small -- yet novel --
research results that do not warrant a full paper.  

SUBMISSION INSTRUCTIONS: Only PostScript or PDF formats are accepted
for all submissions.Full paper submissions must not exceed 10 pages in
IEEE conference style, two-column format, not including the
bibliography. Well-marked appendices of up to 2 pages are allowed but
will be read only at the discretion of reviewers.  Short paper
submissions are limited to 4 pages total.

IEEE Communications Society and Create-Net policy states that all
accepted SecureComm 2007 papers must have at least one registration at
the regular rate.  For authors co-authoring multiple papers, one
regular registration is valid for up to two papers.

All submitted papers will be judged based on their quality through
*double-blind* reviewing, where the identities of the authors are
withheld from the reviewers.  Authors' names must not appear in the
paper or in the PostScript or PDF file.
Complete paper submission instructions will be available at the conference 

Topics of interest include, but are not limited to, the following:

* Security & Privacy in Wired, Wireless, Mobile, Hybrid, Sensor, Ad Hoc 
* Network Intrusion Detection and Prevention, DoS Countermeasures 
* Firewalls, Routers, Filters and Malware detectors 
* Public Key Infrastructures and Other Security Architectures 
* Secure Web Communication 
* Communication Privacy and Anonymity 
* Secure/Private E-commerce 
* Secure Routing, Naming/Addressing, Network Management 
* Security & Privacy in Pervasive and Ubiquitous Computing, e.g., RFIDs 

WORKSHOPS: Proposals for one-day workshops to be held in conjunction
with the conference are solicited. A maximum of 2 pages should be
submitted which include the workshop name, its scope and a list of
topic of interests. Proposals should be submitted to the Workshop
Chair by February 1, 2007.

DEMOS: Proposals for research and industrial demos are solicited. A
maximum of 2 pages should be submitted which include a description of
the demo and needed resources from the conference
organizers. Proposals should be submitted to the Demo Chair by June 1,
