WIA-2006: Workshop on Information Assurance (WIA-2006) will be held In 
conjunction with the 25th IEEE International Performance Computing and 
Communications Conference in Phoenix, Arizona, April 10-12, 2006. 
(Submission due: November 22, 2005)

We seek papers that address theoretical, experimental, systems-related 
and work in-progress in the area of Information Assurance at the network 
and system levels. We expect to have three types of sessions - the first 
related to survivability and fault tolerance, the second related to 
security, and the third related to the interactions between security and 
survivability. Papers should describe original, previously unpublished 
work, not currently under review by another conference, workshop, or 
journal. Papers accepted for presentation will

be published in the IPCCC conference proceedings. The workshop will also 
include invited papers. Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:

 - Authorization and access-control
 - Web services security
 - Database and system security
 - Risk analysis and security management
 - Security verification/validation
 - Wireless LAN Security
 - Restoration techniques for networks
 - Reliability/Availability  of IP networks
 - Digital Rights Management
 - DoS protection for the Internet
 - Cryptographic protocols and Key management
 - Intrusion Detection Techniques
 - Ad hoc and sensor network security
 - Models and architectures for systems security and survivability
 - Security and survivability in optical networks
 - E/M-commerce security and survivability architectures
 - Public policy issues for security and survivability
