The 1st IEEE International Workshop on Trust and Security in Wireless Sensor Networks
held in conjunction with IEEE TrustCom-15

August 20-22, 2015, Helsinki, Finland

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. Communication security is essential to the success of wireless sensor network applications, especially for those mission-critical applications working in unattended and even hostile environments. However, providing satisfactory security protection in wireless sensor networks has ever been a challenging task due to various network & resource constraints and malicious attacks.

This Special Issue, we concentrate mainly on Trust and Security as well as the emerging applications of Wireless Sensor Network. Its 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 sensor networks and tradeoff between security and performance such as QoS, dependability, scalability, etc.

Scope and Interests
Topics covering industrial issues/applications and academic research into Trust and Security in Wireless Sensor Networks will be included, but not limited to:

  • Attacks and Countermeasures
  • Authentication and Access Control
  • Computer-Aided Tool for Security
  • Cross-layer Design for Security
  • Cryptographic Protocol
  • Key Management
  • Information Hiding
  • Intrusion Detection and Response
  • Malicious Behavior Detection and Analysis
  • Privacy and Anonymity
  • Secure Localization and Synchronization
  • Security and Performance tradeoff
  • Security Policy and Enforcement Issues
  • Security Protocols Analysis, Design, and Proof
  • Secure Routing/MAC
  • Surveillance and Monitoring
  • Trust Establishment and Management

Submission and Publication Instructions

Papers submitted to the workshop should be written in English conforming to the IEEE Conference Proceedings Format (8.5" x 11", Two-Column). The paper should be submitted through the workshop submission system at the workshop website. The length of the papers should not exceed 6 pages + 2 pages for over length charges.

Accepted and presented papers will be included into the IEEE Conference Proceedings published by IEEE CS CPS and submitted to IEEE Xplore and CSDL. Authors of accepted papers, or at least one of them, are requested to register and present their work at the conference, otherwise their papers will be removed from the digital libraries of IEEE CS after the conference. Distinguished papers presented at the conference, after further revision, will be recommended to special issues of reputable SCI/EI-indexed journals.

Submitting a paper to the workshop means that, if the paper is accepted, at least one author should attend the workshop and present the paper.
