2019 IEEE ICC Workshop on Wireless Physical Layer Security

The emergence of large-scale, dynamic, and decentralized wireless networks imposes new challenges on classical security measures such as cryptography. To this end, researchers have been seeking for new security technologies to complement cryptography and significantly improve the overall security of wireless communication networks. One of the most promising ideas is to exploit the physical layer characteristics of the wireless channel such as fading or interference, which are traditionally seen as impediments, for improving the security of wireless transmission against passive (e.g., eavesdropping) or active (e.g., jamming) attacks. This emerging security technique, known as physical layer security, has drawn considerable attention in the past few years.Secure methodologies and architectures for mobile and wireless networks. The workshop is expected to bring together academic and industrial researchers in an effort to identify and discuss the major technical challenges and recent results related to physical layer security in wireless networks. Topics of interest include but are not limited to the following: 

  • Secure fundamental theory 
  • Secure advanced spatial diversity techniques (secure cooperative communications, secure two-way cooperative communications and secure MIMO communications, secure cognitive radio systems)
  • Secure resource allocation (secure optimization, secure cross-layer optimization and game theory techniques)
  • Multi-user information theoretical security (coordinated design and distributed design)
  • Cross-layer designs for security
  • Security for HetNets, massive MIMO, and mm-wave transmission
  • Security and privacy in the Internet of Things
  • Security for uRLLC and mMTC applications
  • Trust, security and privacy in e-systems & social networking
  • Trust, security and privacy in cloud computing
  • Performance of practical testbeds for PLS

Submission Guidelines

Please note that workshop papers follow the same "Authors and Submission Guidelines" as the main symposium. Authors are invited to submit original papers of up to 6 pages including figures, tables, and references, in PDF format (maximum 1 additional page with over length page charge of USD100 if accepted). Submission implies that at least one of the authors will register and present the paper at the conference. Electronic submission is accepted through the EDAS. Prospective authors are invited to submit original technical papers for possible publication in IEEE ICC 2019 Conference Proceedings, which will be included in IEEE Digital Library
