About WiSec

As wireless networks become ubiquitous, their security gains in importance. The ACM Conference on Wireless Network Security (WiSec) aims at exploring attacks on wireless networks as well as techniques to thwart them. The considered networks encompass cellular, metropolitan, local area, vehicular, ad hoc, satellite, underwater, cognitive radio, and sensor networks, as well as RFID.

WiSec results from the merger of three workshops:

  • ESAS (European Workshop on the Security of Ad Hoc and Sensor Networks)
  • SASN (ACM Workshop on the Security of Ad Hoc and Sensor Networks)
  • WiSe (ACM Workshop on Wireless Security)

The proceedings will be published by the ACM.
