Securecomm seeks high-quality research contributions in the form of well- developed papers. Topics of interest encompass research advances in ALL areas of secure communications and networking. Topics in other areas (e.g., formal methods, database security, secure software, theoretical
cryptography) will be considered only if a clear connection to private or secure communication/networking is demonstrated. Securecomm brings together security and privacy experts in academia, industry and government as well as practitioners, standards developers and policy makers. Securecomm also serves as a venue for learning about state-of-the-art in security and privacy research. Presentations reporting on cutting-edge research results are supplemented by panels on controversial issues and invited talks on timely and important topics.

Technical papers describing original unpublished research are solicited.
Submissions must not be concurrently under review by a conference, journal or any other venue that has proceedings.

Paper submission will be handled electronically. Papers must be formatted using Springer LNICST Authors'Kit (
and submitted only through the Assyst conference management system following the instructions that can be found in the conference web site (Submission Guidelines). Papers must not exceed the limit of 18 pages.
Well-marked appendices of up to 2 pages are allowed but will be read only at the discretion of reviewers. CD proceedings will be distributed during the conference days and will be published by Springer LNICST.

All submitted papers will be judged based on their quality through *double-
blind* reviewing, where the identities of the authors are withheld from the reviewers. Authors' names must not appear in the paper.

Accepted papers will be published in the SecureComm Conference Proceedings and by Springer-Verlag in the Lecture Notes of the Institute for Computer Sciences, Social-Informatics and Tele-communications Engineering (LNICST) series. The proceedings will be available both as paper-based copies and via Springerlink, Springer's digital library. In addition, the content of the proceedings will be submitted for inclusion in leading indexing services, including DBLP, Google Scholar, ISI Proceedings, EI, CrossRef and Zentralblatt Math, as well as ICST's own EU Digital Library (EUDL).

Topics of interest include, but are not limited to, the following:

* Security & Privacy in Wired, Wireless, Mobile, Hybrid, Sensor, Ad Hoc
* Network Intrusion Detection and Prevention, Firewalls, Packet Filters
* Malware and botnets
* Communication Privacy and Anonymity
* Distributed denial of service
* Public Key Infrastructures, key management, credentials
* Web security
* Secure Routing, Naming/Addressing, Network Management
* Security & Privacy in Pervasive and Ubiquitous Computing, e.g., RFIDs
* Security & Privacy for emerging technologies: VoIP, peer-to-peer and
overlay network systems, Web 2.0

SecureComm 2011 is seeking original high quality Special Sessions and Workshops on focused discussion addressing innovative research highlighting significant topics and emerging issues which are related to the conference theme and with the desired expertise. Interdisciplinary session themes are strongly sought after. Each special session resembles a mini-conference within the main SecureComm meeting will run throughout the conference in parallel to other tracks (except the keynote presentations). Proposals should be submitted to the Workshop Chair at by *April 30, 2011*

Proposals for research and industrial demos are solicited. A maximum of 2 pages should be submitted which include a description of the demo and needed resources from the conference organizers. Proposals should be submitted to the Demo Chair at by *June 27, 2011*.
