Future wireless systems will require a paradigm shift in how they are networked, organized, configured, optimized, and recovered automatically, based on their operating situations. Emerging Internet of Things (IoT) and Cyber-Physical Systems (CPS) applications aim to bring people, data, processes, and things together, to fulfill the needs of our everyday lives. With the emergence of software defined networks, adaptive services and applications are gaining much attention since they allow automatic configuration of devices and their parameters, systems, and services to the user's context change. It is expected that upcoming Sixth Generation and Beyond (6G&B) wireless networks, known as more than an extension to 4G, will be the backbone of IoT and CPS, and will support IoT systems by expanding their coverage, reducing latency and enhancing data rate. However, there are several challenges to be addressed to provide resilient connections supporting the massive number of often resource constrained IoT and other wireless devices. Hence, due to several unique features of emerging applications, such as low latency, low cost, low energy consumption, resilient and reliable connections, traditional communication protocols and techniques are not suitable.

In this regard, it is crucial to have security by design in 6G&B and beyond wireless networks, considering the constraints imposed by heterogeneous IoT and CPS systems. Our aim is to promote the development of 6G&B security by design. The proposed IEEE ICC 2024 workshop NextG-WiSec will serve as a forum for researchers from academia, government, and industries, to exchange ideas, present new results, and provide future visions on these topics.

Topics include, but not limited to:

- Semantic Communications and Security for NextG Wireless Systems
- Quantum Communications and Security for NextG Wireless Systems
- Integrated Sensing and Communication (ISAC) for NextG Wireless
- NextG & Beyond architecture with security and privacy considerations
- Security for new service delivery models
- AI and Machine Learning for 6G and Beyond security
- Verticals and business (non-technical) NextG and Beyond security requirements and solutions
- Big data analytics tools/techniques in NextG & Beyond Security
- Advances in lightweight cryptography and IoT/CPS security
- Wireless virtualization and slicing security
- Authentication, authorization, and accounting for NextG & Beyond security
- AI and Machine Learning for NextG & Beyond security
- Diameter security in NextG & Beyond
- Quantum Safe Cryptography for NextG & Beyond
- Secure Integration of IoT/CPS and Cloud Computing
- Secure integration of IoT /CPS and other networks
- Secure Device-to-Device communications in NextG & Beyond
- Intrusion Detection/Prevention Techniques and System Integrity
- Secure data storage, communications, and computing
- Energy efficient security in IoT and CPS
- Heterogeneous system modeling for NextG security
- Secure sensing and computing techniques in NextG & Beyond
