Call For Papers

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
