2nd Workshop on Physical-layer Methods for Wireless Security

The 2nd Workshop on Physical-layer Methods for Wireless Security will take place during IEEE CNS 2015 in Florence, Italy, on September 30, 2015. The main goal of this workshop is twofold. First, this workshop will serve as a means of dissemination of physical layer security results that are often confined to the information theory community to a wider audience that IEEE Conference on Communications and Network Security (CNS) enjoys, e.g., researchers from communications, signal processing and networking communities. Second, this workshop will stimulate interest for research in practical aspects of physical-layer security. This cross-fertilization will benefit not only the physical-layer security research, by attracting a more diverse group of researchers who will come with their rich body of new ideas, but also the CNS community, by presenting a new body of open problems with significant theoretical and practical impact on the design of future wireless communication networks. Previously unpublished contributions in physical-layer security are solicited, including (but not limited to):

  • Secrecy capacity of wireless channels

  • Secure communication under adversarial attacks

  • Practical code design for physical layer security

  • Secure cross-layer design techniques

  • Secure communication with an uncertain physical layer

  • Information theoretic approaches for authentication

  • Jamming-assisted secure wireless transmission

  • Cooperative secure communications

  • Secret key generation and agreement

  • Secret key capacity of wireless channels

  • Practical and implementation issues

The workshop features two keynotes given by world leading researchers in the field:

  • Eduard Jorswieck (TU Dresden)

  • Paul Cuff (Princeton University)

The workshop accepts only novel, previously unpublished papers. Submitted papers should be written in English and of sufficient length and detail for review by experts in the field. Final papers will be limited to 6 pages in length in the standard IEEE conference paper format (10-point font). Accepted papers will be published in IEEE Xplore. Deadline for submission is July 10 (extended).

Papers should be submitted for review through EDAS at
