CALL FOR PAPERS
          The first International Workshop on 
          Wireless Security and Privacy (WiSP'08)
          June 20, 2008, Beijing, China
          held in conjunction with 
          The 28th International Conference on 
          Distributed Computing Systems (ICDCS'08)
Theme and scope:
Wireless networks have experienced an explosive growth during the last few 
years. Nowadays, there is a large variety of networks spanning from the 
well-known cellular networks to non-infrastructure wireless networks such 
as mobile ad hoc networks and sensor networks. The security issue is a 
central concern for achieving secured communication in these networks. This 
workshop aims to bring together researchers and practitioners from wireless 
and sensor networking, security, cryptography, and distributed computing 
communities, with the goals of promoting discussions and collaborations. We 
are interested in novel research on all aspects of security in wireless and 
sensor networks and tradeoff between security and performance such as QoS, 
dependability, scalability, etc.
Topics of interest:
We are seeking papers that describe original and unpublished contributions 
addressing various aspects of secured wireless/sensor networks. Topics of 
interest include, but are not limited to:
. Authentication and Access Control
. Cryptographic Protocol
. Experimental Studies
. Key Management
. Information Hiding
. Intrusion Detection and Response
. Privacy and Anonymity . Secure Localization and Synchronization 
. Security and Performance tradeoff
. Security Policy and Enforcement Issues 
. Security Protocols Design, Analysis and Verification
. Secure Routing/MAC
. Surveillance and Monitoring
. Threat & Trust Management 
Paper Submission:
Submit an electronic version of manuscripts, not exceed 6 pages 
(IEEE Computer Society proceedings Manuscripts: two columns, single-spaced) 
to zjiang@wcupa.edu, including an abstract, 3-5 key words, the corresponding
author's e-mail, figures, and references 
Prepare your papers in PDF file only. Acknowledgement will be sent back for 
each submission within 24 hours; otherwise, a re-submission is needed.
Each submitted paper will be peer reviewed and the comments will be 
provided to the authors. Accepted papers will be published by IEEE Computer 
Society Press, as proceedings of the ICDCS'08 workshops. 
Submission of a paper should be regarded as an undertaking that, should 
the paper be accepted, at least one of the authors will register and 
attend the workshop to present the work. 
Special Issue:
We also plan to publish the full versions of the manuscripts as a special 
issue of International Journal of Security and Networks (IJSN) 
(http://www.inderscience.com/ijsn/). Selected authors will be invited to 
prepare articles after the workshop, with an additional review phase by 
the workshop committee and journal editors.
Important Dates:
Manuscript Submission:          11/15/2007
Acceptance Notification:        2/11/2008
Final Manuscript Due:           3/9/2008
