          Computer and Communications Network Security Symposium

Symposia Co-Chairs:
- Abderrahim Benslimane, LIA/CERI, abderrahim.benslimane@univ-avignon.fr
- Jiankun Hu, RMIT University, jiankun@cs.rmit.edu.au
- Peter Mueller, IBM Zurich Research Laboratory, pmu@zurich.ibm.com

With the advent of pervasive computer applications and due to the
proliferation of heterogeneous wired and wireless computer networks,
computer and network security has become paramount. The Computer and
Communications Network Security Symposium will address all aspects of the
modelling, design, implementation,deployment, and management of
computer/network security algorithms, protocols,architectures, and systems.
Furthermore, contributions devoted to the evaluation, optimization, or
enhancement of security mechanisms for current technologies as well as
devising efficient security and privacy solutions for emerging technologies
are solicited.

Original papers are invited in the area of computer and network security.
Papers must represent high-quality and previously unpublished work.
Contributions in CCNS symposium target wired networks as well as wireless
networks: 3G/ 4G, Satellite, IEEE 802.11, Bluetooth, Ad Hoc, Vehicular,
Sensor and RFID  Networks, WiMAX, 802.16, 802.16e and Peer-to-Peer Systems.
