2005 International Workshop on
Wireless and Sensor Networks Security

held in conjunction with

The 2nd IEEE International Conference on
Mobile Ad-hoc and Sensor Systems

November 7-10, 2005
Wyndham City Center Hotel
Washington, DC

Theme and scope:

Wireless networks have experienced an explosive growth during the last few years. Nowadays, there is a large variety of networks spanning from the well-known cellular networks to non-infrastructure wireless networks such as mobile ad hoc networks and sensor networks. This workshops aims to bring together researchers and practitioners from wireless and sensor networking, security, cryptography, and distributed computing communities, with the goals of promoting discussions and collaborations. We are interested in novel research on all aspects of security in wireless and sensor networks and tradeoff between security and performance such as QoS, dependability, scalability, etc.

Topics of interest:

We are seeking papers that describe original and unpublished contributions addressing various aspects of secured wireless/sensor networks.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

Authentication and Access Control
Cryptographic Protocol
Experimental Studies
Key Management
Information Hiding
Intrusion Detection and Response
Privacy and Anonymity
Secure Localization and Synchronization
Security and Performance tradeoff
Security Policy and Enforcement Issues
Security Protocols Design, Analysis and Verification
Secure Routing/MAC
Surveillance and Monitoring
Trust Management

Paper Submission:

Submit a full paper of about 6 pages (IEEE Computer Society proceedings Manuscripts: two column, single-spaced), including figures and references, using 10 font size, and number each page. Each submitted paper will be peer reviewed and the comments will be provided to the authors. Accepted papers will be published by IEEE Computer Society Press, as proceedings of the MASS'05 workshops.

Use the IEEE Computer Society Press Proceedings Author Guidelines ( Prepare your papers in PDF file only (Adobe format), paper title, names, affiliations, postal address, and e-mail address of the authors, about 200-250 word abstract, and at most five keywords.

Submit your paper as an e-mail attachment to (or Acknowledgement will be sent back for each submission within 24 hours; otherwise, a re-submission is needed. Submission of a paper should be regarded as an undertaking that, should the paper be accepted, at least one of the authors will register and attend the workshop to present the work.
