Call for Papers (TXT, PDF)

As wireless and mobile networking becomes ubiquitous, security and privacy gains in importance. The focus of ACM Conference on Wireless Network Security (ACM WiSec) is on exploring attacks on (and threats facing) wireless communication as well as techniques to address them. Settings of interest include: cellular, metropolitan, mesh, local area, personal-area, home, vehicular, sensor, ad hoc, satellite, and underwater networks as well as cognitive radio and RFID.

Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:

  • Naming and addressing vulnerabilities
  • Key management in wireless/mobile environments
  • Secure neighbor discovery / Secure localization
  • Secure PHY and MAC protocols
  • Trust establishment
  • Intrusion detection, detection of malicious behavior
  • Revocation of malicious parties
  • Denial of service
  • User privacy, location privacy
  • Anonymity, unobservability, prevention of traffic analysis
  • Identity theft and phishing in mobile networks
  • Charging & secure payment
  • Cooperation and prevention of non-cooperative behavior
  • Economics of wireless security
  • Vulnerability and attack modeling
  • Incentive-aware secure protocol design
  • Jamming/Anti-jamming communication
  • Cross-layer design for security
  • Monitoring and surveillance
  • Cryptographic primitives for wireless communication
  • Formal methods for wireless security
  • Mobile/wireless platform and systems (OS and application) security

The proceedings of ACM WiSec are published by the ACM.

Two types of submissions are solicited:
  • Full papers (up to 12 pages in the ACM conference style) that report on weighty and mature research results
  • Short papers (up to 6 pages in the ACM conference style) that describe pithy results or exciting work-in-progress

Authors of full paper submissions must indicate whether they want their submission to be considered for the short paper category in the event of non-acceptance as a full paper. Submissions must be thoroughly anonymized for double-blinded reviewing. Detailed submission instructions will appear on the conference website (

IMPORTANT NOTE: It is a policy of the ACM ( to disallow double submissions, where the same (or substantially similar) paper is concurrently submitted to multiple conferences/journals. Any double submissions detected will be immediately rejected from all conferences/journals involved.

Important Dates

  • Notification of acceptance: February 18, 2011
  • Camera-ready version: March 18, 2011
