6th Workshop on Applications of Wireless Communications (WAWC'08),
August 20-21, 2008 - Lappeenranta, Finland
in co-operation with ESF MiNEMA programme,
in conjunction with the 17th Summer School on Telecommunications
at the Lappeenranta University of Technology, Finland
Abstract submission deadline: January 20, 2008
Paper submission deadline: February 11, 2008
Notification of acceptance: March 31, 2008
Revised papers due: May 1, 2008
The research related to wireless communication and its use, concentrates
on providing tools for application developers to create new and better
applications and services e.g. a better way to handle connection
forming, a new way to manage personal information or a new approach to
model context information. There is less emphasis on the actual
applications that use these new methods i.e. applications that benefit
from context-awareness, use the new communication model, adapts to each
person individually. WAWC'08 concentrates on such applications and
services. The major emphasis of the workshop this year is security of
wireless applications. What are the real security threats towards
wireless services? Do the existing research results provide feasible
solutions to these threats?
WAWC'08 is a workshop featuring invited presentations, refereed paper
presentations, student work presentations and a panel discussion.
WAWC'08 will be held in conjunction with the 17th Summer School on
Telecommunications that concentrates on various issues of the Wireless
World. The Summer School program also includes a 24h programming event,
Code Camp. Participants of WAWC'08 are welcomed to join also in Summer
Papers about security in applications and services using wireless
communication should concentrate at one of the following topics.
* Privacy threats and protection
* Automation and Simplicity
* Lightweight cryptography
* Threat analysis
* Seamless connectivity
* User-Centric security
* Feasible security solution
* Security Management
* Ambient Intelligence
* Pervasive/Ubiquitous Communications
* Wireless sensors security
* Touch zone security
* Payment systems
Please feel free to contact the program chair at WAWC@lut.fi to
determine the appropriateness of the topic of your paper.
What to submit
Abstract should be maximum of one page long describing the main idea of
the paper. The abstract submission is used as a prefiltering method to
quarantee that the reviewers will get only papers suitable for the
The original submission should be maximum of 7 single-spaced A4 pages,
including figures, tables and references using point 12 font. Details of
the paper format can be found on the workshop website.
A good paper demonstrates that:
* Application area presented is or will be of greater interest of
* Wireless communication has a significant role in the solution
* The realization of the security solution presents a new way of
WAWC'08 among most conferences and journals requires that papers must be
