The 4th International Workshop on Security & Optimization for Wireless Networks

(SOWN 2015)

Liverpool, England, UK, 26-28 October 2015

In conjunction with

The 15th IEEE International Conference on Computer and Information Technology (CIT-2015)


All accepted papers will be included in the IEEE CIT-2015 main proceedings (Indexed by EI)


The 4th International Workshop on Security & Optimization for Wireless Networks (SOWN 2015) covers comprehensively the common issues about security and optimization in the hot area of wireless networks, which does hinder further development of its applications. In particular, this workshop concentrates on security problems like key management, privacy, cryptographic protocol and optimization problems like energy-efficient protocol, topology control strategy, QoS, etc.

The objective of this workshop is to present state of the art research results in the rapidly growing area of wireless networks, with emphasizes on security and optimization issues. Following the success of SOWN-11 (held in Beijing, China, in conjunction with MSN-11) and SOWN 2012 (held in Liverpool, UK, in conjunction with IEEE TrustCom-12). SOWN-13(held in Australia, in conjunction with IEEE TrustCom-13). SOWN-15 provides continuously the participants with opportunities to discuss and explore areas related to the Theory, Development, Applications, Experiences, and Evaluation of wireless networks with fellow students, researchers, and practitioners.

We are seeking papers that describe original and unpublished contributions addressing various aspects of wireless networks. Potential topics of interest include, but are not limited to:

·         Cross layer design

·         Trusted computing

·         Game theory

·         Big data security

·         Secure cryptographic protocol

·         Key management

·         Secret sharing

·         Cryptography and its applications

·         Topology control and fault tolerant

·         Fault diagnosis

·         Positioning and tracking

·         Green computing

·         Security and privacy

·         Cooperation communication

·         Access control

·         Modeling and simulation

·         Resources allocation and schedule

·         Cognitive radio networks
