Advances in wireless technology as well as several other areas are changing the way the world does business and as a result computing is becoming more mobile, and users are demanding continuous access to the Internet. At the same time, the number of devices with embedded networking technology is growing exponentially--from boxes with RFID tags to Wi-Fi capable refrigerators since they destroy the notion of a static defensive perimeter. Furthermore, these trends make the ease of use and management of wireless based networks more important since na´ve consumers in the future will be establishing and using wireless networks on a scale significantly larger than today. This workshop will focus on identifying the current and future problems in wireless security and privacy and discuss possible solutions.
The three day workshop will be organized around a series of talks on subjects related to mobility, wireless, and security and privacy technologies. There will be a mix between invited talks and talks selected from extended abstracts with plenty of discussion time between talks.
Authors are encouraged to submit an extended abstract on any topic related to wireless and mobile security. Example topics of interest are Interworking security, mesh network security, sensor network security, the privacy of RFID networks, and the security of community networks. These topics are examples only and authors are encouraged to submit extended abstracts on other topics related to the workshop as long as the abstract is of a technical and research nature. Authors are also encouraged to submit early work, and new or outlandish ideas as the primary goal of the workshop is to allow researchers from the networking and security communities to meet in a workshop environment where ideas can be exchanged and discussed in an inter-disciplinary environment.
Authors should submit a two page extended abstract in a font no less than 11pt with reasonable margins by midnight (Eastern time) September 1, 2004. Submission instructions will be posted at http://www.missl.cs.umd.edu/dimacs-workshop.
