Subject and Purpose of the Workshop

The 2nd International Workshop on Security & Optimization for Wireless Networks (SOWN 2012) 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. This workshop will provide 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.

Topics of interest

We are seeking papers that describe original and unpublished contributions addressing various aspects of wireless networks.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:

Submissions

All Papers should be submitted electronically in PDF format only by sending it as an e-mail attachment to Dr. Changlu Lin at SOWN2012@163.com and CC to cllin@fjnu.edu.cn. The materials presented in the papers should not be published or under submission elsewhere. Each paper is limited to 8 pages (or 10 pages with over length charge) including figures and references using IEEE CS Proceedings Manuscripts style (two columns, single-spaced, 10 fonts). You can confirm the IEEE CS Proceedings Author Guidelines at the following web page: http://www.computer.org/portal/web/cscps/formatting. Accepted papers will be included in the TrustCom2012 main proceedings (indexed by EI). At least one author of each accepted paper must be registered for the conference in order for that paper to appear in the proceedings and to be scheduled for presentation. For submission-related questions, please contact program chairs.
