PAPER SUBMISSION DEADLINE March 7, 2007
************************************************** *****************

Securecomm seeks high-quality research contributions in the form
of well-developed full 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PAPERS: Technical papers describing original unpublished research are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. Authors of the
highest-quality accepted papers will be invited to submit extended
version of their papers to a special issue of ACM Transactions on
Information and System Security (TISSEC).

SHORT PAPERS: In addition to full papers, Securecomm 2007 invites
submission of pithy concise technical papers (also describing original
unpublished research). Such papers may represent work-in-progress
or small -- yet novel -- research results that do not warrant a full
paper.

SUBMISSION INSTRUCTIONS: Only PostScript or PDF formats are accepted
for
all submissions.Full paper submissions must not exceed 10 pages in
IEEE
conference style, two-column format, not including the bibliography.
Well-marked appendices of up to 2 pages are allowed but will be read
only
at the discretion of reviewers. Short paper submissions are limited to
4
pages total.

IEEE Communications Society and Create-Net policy states that all
accepted SecureComm 2007 papers must have at least one registration
at the regular rate.
For authors co-authoring multiple papers, one regular registration is
valid for up to two papers.

All submitted papers will be judged based on their quality through
*double-blind* reviewing, where the identities of the authors are
withheld from the reviewers. Authors' names must not appear in the
paper or in the PostScript or PDF file.

Complete paper submission instructions will be available at the
conference website.

Topics of interest include, but are not limited to, the following:
------------------------------------------------------------------

* Security & Privacy in Wired, Wireless, Mobile, Hybrid, Sensor, Ad
Hoc networks
* Network Intrusion Detection and Prevention, DoS Countermeasures
* Firewalls, Routers, Filters and Malware detectors

* Secure Web Communication
* Communication Privacy and Anonymity
* Secure/Private E-commerce
* Secure Routing, Naming/Addressing, Network Management
* Security & Privacy in Pervasive and Ubiquitous Computing, e.g.,
RFIDs

DEMOS: Proposals for research and industrial demos are solicited. A
maximum of 2 pages should be submitted which include a description of
the
demo and needed resources from the conference organizers.
Proposals should be submitted to the Demo Chair by June 1, 2007.
