Securecomm seeks high-quality research contributions in the form of well
developed 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PAPERS: Technical papers describing original unpublished research are
solicited. Submissions must not be concurrently under review by a
conference, journal or any other venue that has proceedings.

SUBMISSION INSTRUCTIONS: Only PDF formats are accepted for all submissions.
Paper submissions must not exceed 10 pages in IEEE conference style,
twocolumn format, not including the bibliography. Well-marked appendices of up to
