Exploring Attacks on Wireless Networks
March 3, 2010
The Third Association for Computing Machinery (ACM) Conference on Wireless Network Security (WiSec '10) will be held on the campus of Stevens Institute of Technology on March 22 - 24, 2010. Susanne Wetzel, Associate Professor of Computer Science at Stevens, serves as the general chair of the conference.
As wireless networks become ubiquitous, their security gains in importance. WiSec aims to explore attacks on wireless networks as well as techniques to thwart them. The considered networks encompass cellular, metropolitan, local area, vehicular, ad hoc, satellite, underwater, cognitive radio, and sensor networks as well as RFID.
"The conference, which focuses on one of Stevens' thrust areas, is a unique opportunity for Stevens' faculty and students to learn firsthand about the most recent developments in wireless security," said Dr. Wetzel. "Participants will also have the opportunity to meet security researchers from all over the world."
The technical program of the conference includes nine full papers and twelve short papers on various topics in wireless security. For the first time, the program also includes two sessions for poster presentations and practical demos. Furthermore, the conference will feature keynote addresses by Andrew Odlyzko, a Professor in the School of Mathematics at the University of Minnesota, and Philip R. Zimmermann, the creator of Pretty Good Privacy, the most widely used email encryption software in the world.
This conference is open to all, so please visit the WiSec ’10 website to learn more and to register.
