ESAS 2006 (
Third European Workshop on Security and Privacy in Ad hoc and Sensor Networks
September 20-21, 2006, Hamburg, Germany
in conjunction with the European Symposium on Research in Computer Security 
(ESORICS 2006)

Call for Papers 
The vision of ubiquitous computing has generated a lot of interest in wireless 
ad hoc and sensor networks. However, besides their potential advantages, these 
new generations of networks also raise some challenging problems with respect 
to security and privacy. The aim of this workshop is to bring together the 
network security, cryptography, and wireless networking communities in order 
to discuss these problems and to propose new solutions. The third ESAS 
workshop seeks submissions that present original research on all aspects of 
security and privacy in wireless ad hoc and sensor networks. Submission of 
papers based on work-in-progress is encouraged. Topics of interest include, 
but are not limited to the following: 

Privacy and anonymity 
Prevention of traffic analysis 
Location privacy 
Secure positioning and localization 
Secure MAC protocols 
Secure topology control 
Secure routing 
Secure in-network processing 
 Secure context aware computing 
Attack resistant data aggregation 
Cooperation and fairness 
Key management 
Trust establishment 
Embedded security 
Cryptography for resource constrained applications 
Distributed intrusion detection

Instructions for Authors
Authors are invited to submit an extended abstract of their original work. 
Maximum length for submissions is 8 pages. The preferred submission format is 
PDF or PostScript. Submissions must not substantially duplicate work that any 
of the authors have published elsewhere or have submitted in parallel. All 
submissions will be refereed. Accepted papers should be presented at the 
workshop, in which case they will appear in the post-workshop proceedings. The 
final camera ready version should be sent in after the workshop and it must 
not exceed 15 pages. Further information on how to submit papers will be 
available here. 

Workshop Proceedings
As in previous years, the proceedings will be published by Springer after the 
workshop in the Lecture Notes in Computer Science (LNCS) Series 
( Note that in order to be included in the 
proceedings, an accepted paper must be presented at the workshop. In addition, 
when preparing the final manuscript, the authors should take into account the 
reviewers' comments and the comments received at the workshop.
