Special Session on Security in Wireless Ad-Hoc Networks and Wireless Sensor Networks
(SWAN 2010)


As part of
The 2010 International Symposium on Collaborative Technologies and Systems (CTS 2010)

Submission Deadline:  January 18, 2010

Wireless sensor networks (WSN) and ubiquitous sensing have the potential to change the way people live and work in the same way that the Internet did in the 1990s.  While the foundations of the Internet were created without security in mind and many plaguing problems resulted, there is an opportunity to build security into WSNs from the outset.  Security must pervade every aspect of WSNs from the ground up - it cannot be layered atop the final product.  Therefore, the CTS Special Session on Security in Wireless Ad Hoc Networks and Wireless Sensor Networks (SWAN 2010) will look at security of all facets of wireless networks, from sensor nodes themselves to the physical, link, and routing layers and network communications, up to complete WSN systems and applications. 

Possible session topics include (but not limited to):

Authors are invited to submit original and unpublished papers to the special session organizers by January 18, 2010.  Electronic (PDF) submissions are encouraged and should be sent to and .  For other electronic formats, please check with the organizers.  Papers submitted for review should not exceed 10 pages in IEEE single-spaced, double-column format.  Additional pages will be charged at additional fee.  Include up to 6 keywords and an abstract of no more than 350 words.  Submissions should also include the title, authors name, affiliation, e-mail address, fax number and postal address.  In case of multiple authors, an indication of which author is responsible for correspondence should also be included.  If accepted, the final manuscript will follow the CTS 2010 format that is available on the conference Web site at

Consistent with standard practice, each submitted paper will receive a minimum of three reviews.  Papers will be selected based on their originality, timeliness, significance, relevance, and clarity of presentation.  Initial selection will be based on full papers.  Submission implies the willingness of at least one of the authors to register and present the paper, once accepted.  All accepted papers are required to be presented and will be included in the conference proceedings.  Instructions for final manuscript format and requirements will be posted on the CTS 2010 Symposium web site later.  It is our intent to have the proceedings formally published in hard and soft copies and be available at the time of the conference.
