Call for Workshop Proposals

IEEE/CIC ICCC 2014 will be held in Shanghai, China, Oct. 13-15, 2014 ( In addition to technical sessions, the program will also include a set of workshops. The goal of the workshops is to explore emerging research topics, and to provide a forum for authors to present early research results on these topics. Workshop papers are expected to focus on more specific research areas than those in the main conference. Proposals are welcome for workshops that will touch aspects of high interest with this flavor. Workshops will be half-day, with 2 sessions of 1.5 hours each. The dates for paper submission, notification and final paper submission should be stated in the proposal; however, final papers must be due no later than July 1st, 2014. All workshop papers will appear in IEEE Xplore (and will be EI Indexed). All Web pages related to the accepted workshops will reside on the official IEEE/CIC ICCC 2014 Web site.
The workshop proposal, in plain text or PDF, should provide the following information:
1. Title, scope and topics of the workshop
2. Names, addresses, and affiliation of Workshop organizers
3. Tentative committee lists
4. Workshop format planned (papers, demos, panels, etc.)
5. Past history of the workshop if any (where held, number of papers, number of participants)
6. Rationale - why is the topic relevant of current interest; why is the workshop expected to attract a significant number of submissions of good quality.

Please also include a draft call for paper.

Workshop organizers should send their workshop proposals to Workshop Co-Chairs by email to both Co-Chairs on or before March 1st, 2014. Please include in the email subject “IEEE/CIC ICCC 2014 Workshop Proposals”. Notification of acceptance for workshop proposals will be on March 15th, 2014.

Security in Cognitive Radio Networks

   Security in cognitive radio networks is increasingly attracting the attention of researchers from both academia and industry, due to the open and dynamic nature of the cognitive networking architecture where various unknown and malicious devices could participate in the spectrum sensing and access, leading the legitimate cognitive users to be exposed to much more internal and external attacks than ever before. For example, cognitive radio is supposed to be capable of learning its surrounding environment and adapting its operating parameters to any changes in the radio environment, which, however, could be utilized by malicious users for illegal attacks. More specifically, the malicious users may emit interference signals to intentionally modify the radio environment in which the cognitive radio operates, misleading legitimate users and even compromising them or causing them to malfunction. It is thus of high importance to launch this workshop to identify and address the security vulnerabilities and risks in cognitive radio networks.

This workshop aims to serve as a venue to bring together researchers from academia and industry to identify and discuss technical challenges and recent results in cognitive radio security. The topics of interest include, but are not limited to:
  • Spectrum sensing attack and countermeasures
  • Spectrum access attack and countermeasures
  • Spectrum management attack and countermeasures
  • Denial-of-service attack modeling and analysis in cognitive radio networks
  • Eavesdropping attack modeling and analysis in cognitive radio networks
  • Byzantine attack modeling and analysis in cognitive radio networks
  • Information-theoretical secrecy capacity of cognitive transmissions
  • Tradeoff designs for secure and reliable cognitive radio networks
  • Cooperative relaying for cognitive radio security
  • Multiple antenna techniques for cognitive radio security
  • Beamforming techniques for cognitive radio security
  • Artificial noise design for cognitive radio security
  • Physical-layer security in cognitive radio networks
  • MAC layer vulnerabilities and counter measures
  • Cross-layer security design, implementation, and analysis
  • Emerging cognitive radio networking standards and the impact of cognitive radio security
  • Experimental results on cognitive radio security

International Workshop on Mobility Aware Architecture, Protocol, and Service for Future Internet

   Efforts for mobility support have mostly focused on enabling seamless handovers of a mobile device for cellular networks and recently for the Internet. Signi cant achievements were made for the traditional mobility support but new network initiatives such as Cloud Computing, Internet of Things, and Information Centric Networking are emerging that all require mobility aware design and development for architecture, protocol, and service. Continued e orts for mobility support must progress so that such network initiatives are successfully arrived safe. For the 3GPP evolved packet core, developments of the distributed IP mobility aware architecture and protocol are urgent while network functions virtualization with mobility support is being considered as a cost e ective strategy for building the next generation cellular network integrated with the Internet. Communications of things also require mobility support as the things are moving devices themselves or devices attached to human beings. Mobility support is even one of core research issues in Information Centric Networking and yet small steps were made toward an envisioned content distribution architecture.
   The purpose of this workshop is to bring together the academia and industry working on di erent aspects but related to mobility aware computing to highlight the state-of-art research on mobility support for Future Internet, exchange ideas, and explore new directions. Research results containing detailed descriptions of architecture and protocol operations for mobility support in Future Internet are highly welcome. The workshop will be a half-day workshop in conjunction with the third IEEE/CIC International Conference on Communications in China (ICCC 2014), Shanghai, China, 13{15 October, 2014.
Topics of Interest:
  •  Distributed IP mobility aware architecture and protocol for the 3GPP evolved packet core
  •  Mobility aware network functions virtualization for the 3GPP evolved packet core
  •  Mobility aware architecture, protocol, and service for Internet of Things/Everything
  •  Mobility aware architecture, protocol, and service for Information Centric Networking
  •  Mobility modeling of human, sensor, and device
  •  Security design and operation for mobility aware architecture, protocol, and service
  •  Performance modeling and analysis of mobility aware architecture, protocol, and service
Submission Guidelines
Prospective authors are invited to submit original papers by the deadline of 10th July 2014. All submissions written in English with most six (6) printed pages in length are required to be submitted through EDAS: The paper template is available at confpub/AuthorTools/conferenceTemplates.html. Accepted and presented papers at the workshop will be included in the IEEE Digital Library and invited to submit the extended papers for possible publication in journal special issues.
