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PAPERS: Technical papers describing original unpublished research are solicited.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addition to full papers, Securecomm 2007 invites submission of pithy concise technical papers (also describing original unpublished research).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
  • Public Key Infrastructures and Other Security Architectures
  • 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.



Paper Submission: March 7, 2007 Notification of Acceptance: May 31, 2007 Camera-ready Version: June 24, 2007 Conference Dates: September 17-21, 2007
