Call For Papers

The 2nd IEEE International Symposium on Anonymity and Communication Systems

Venue & Dates: Liverpool, UK, 25-27 June, 2012

In Conjunction with

The 11th IEEE International Conference on Trust, Security and Privacy
in Computing and Communications (IEEE TrustCom 2012),
Liverpool, UK, 25-27 June, 2012


With the extensive applications of computer network technologies, various network environments, including cloud computing, Internet of Things, P2P networks, and social networks, are emerging in our daily lives. The emerging applications require stronger security and privacy mechanisms to protect network communications among users. Anonymous communication is used to hide communication participants or communication relations so as to achieve effective protection for network nodes and user identities. Anonymous communication can address potential network security issues, and becomes one of the hot topics in the field of network and information security. For the better protection of secure communication and user privacy, including location, identity and behavior habits, it is necessary to develop anonymous communication theories, methods and key technologies of anonymous communication systems in all varieties of application environments.

Scope and Interests

IEEE ACS 2012 aims at providing a forum for discussing the latest academic and industrial research results in all aspects of anonymous communication systems. Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:

(1) Architecture for anonymous communication system
(2) Formalizing anonymous communication system
(3) Anonymity measures and evaluation
(4) Controllable management and revocability in anonymous communication
(5) Anonymous communication in cloud computing
(6) Anonymous communication in Internet of Things
(7) Anonymous communication in P2P networks
(8) Anonymous communication in social networks
(9) Anonymous signature and authentication
(10) Anonymous communication & privacy protection
(11) Anonymous communication & network security
(12) Anonymous email system
(13) Anonymous storage and publishing system
(14) Anonymous browsing system

Submission and Publication Information

The accepted papers from this symposium will be published by IEEE Computer Society in IEEE TrustCom-12 conference proceedings (indexed by EI Compendex). Papers should be written in English conforming to the IEEE conference proceedings format (8.5" x 11", Two-Column). Papers should be submitted through the paper submission system at the symposium website. Each paper is limited to 6 pages (or 8 pages with the over length charge). Distinguished papers, after further revisions, will be published in special issues indexed by SCI and EI. Submitting a paper to the symposium means that, if the paper is accepted, at least one author should attend the symposium and present the paper.
